  1. If the raw materials prices are suffering from inflation, which of the following methods of valuing stocks will give the lowest gross profit?
    Replacement Cost
    Simple Average
    Given answer is LIFO , but I think Replacement Cost would be the most correct answer because inflation is increasing continuously and to get lowest profit current cost should be high which will be given by Replacement Cost rather than LIFO.

    1. Glad you found the material helpful. Let us know what specific kinds of information you’d like to see and we’ll try to add it in the future. Best of luck!
