Accelerated depreciation

Accelerated depreciation methods for financial reporting are most likely to have which of the following effects on a company’s financial ratios during the early years of an asset’s life?

a. Lower current ratio.

b. Higher asset turnover ratio.

c. Lower debt-to-equity ratio.

(b). But why can’t the answer also be (a)?

Thanks in advance.

because depreciation is applied to long-term assets, and the current ratio deals with more liquid short-term assets
