In periods of rising purchase prices which of the following statements is true? A) LIFO will assign lower inventory costs to cost of goods sold than will FIFO and LIFO will assign lower inventory costs to the ending inventory than will FIFO. B) LIFO will assign lower inventory costs to cost of goods sold than will FIFO and LIFO will assign higher inventory costs to the ending inventory than will FIFO. C) LIFO will assign higher inventory costs to cost of goods sold than will FIFO and LIFO will assign lower inventory costs to the ending inventory than will FIFO. D) LIFO will assign higher inventory costs to cost of goods sold than will FIFO and LIFO will assign higher inventory costs to the ending inventory than will FIFO. E) None of the above is true. Feedback: If inventory purchase prices are increasing, costs of goods sold will be higher using LIFO because the most recent prices are the ones being assigned to cost of goods sold. Thus, the older and lower inventory costs are the ones being assigned to the ending inventory.
