Before any payment, the current ratio is above 1:1 and acid test ratio is below
1:1. Therefore, the current ratio shall rise but acid test ratio shall go down. If any
of these two ratios is below 1:1, the equal change in current assets and current
liabilities brings direct effect on the ratio, that is, equal increase in current assets
and current liabilities causes the ratio to rise.
