Q # 52 CFA mock exam- morning session

will really appreciate if anyone could help me understand how they have computed the answer of this question… its about deferred taxes… my weakest area

I was also a little confused about how they calculated this.  It seemed almost like a typo to me. In the question they give you the “Current Income Tax Expense” of $1000.  And then they ask, “what is the income tax expense?”   If that info has said “income tax payable” I would have got it.  (i.e.  income tax expense = income tax payable + Change in DTL - Change in DTA).   

So.. does “current” income tax expense equal to “tax payable”.  That is the question I guess.

btw - I got this wrong on the test and went for the $1000 answer thinking it was a trick question.
