C. AVCO or averrage cost

Answer: Option A

Solution(By Examveda Team)

FIFO methods of inventory costing produces ending stock cost close to the market value of the inventory. FIFO (First-in, first-out) method is based on the perception that the first inventories purchased are the first ones to be sold. It is a cost flow assumption for most companies. Since the theory perfectly matches to the actual flow of goods, therefore it is considered as the right way to value inventory.
