Ratio Analysis (ii) Quick / Liquid / Acid-Test Ratio: This Ratio measures the short term debt paying ability of the firm Quick / Liquid /Acid Test Ratio = Quick Assets (Ideal Raito = 1:1) Current Liabilities Absolute Liquid Ratio / Cash position Ratio = Cash in hand & at Bank + Short term Marketable securities (Ideal Ratio = 0.75:1, or even 0.50:1)
