(c) The highest charge to income for Year 1 will be yielded by the double-declining-balance method. (d) The highest charge to income for Year 4 will be yielded by the straight- line method. (e) The method that produces the highest book value at the end of Year 3 would be the method that yields the lowest accumulated depreciation at the end of Year 3, which is the straight-line method. Computations: St.-line = $50,000 - ($9,000 + $9,000 + $9,000) = $23,000 book value, end of Year 3. S.Y.D. = $50,000 - ($15,000 + $12,000 + $9,000) = $14,000 book value, end of Year 3. D.D.B. = $50,000 - ($20,000 + $12,000 + $7,200) = $10,800 book value, end of Year 3. (f) The method that will yield the highest gain (or lowest loss) if the asset is sold at the end of Year 3 is the method which will yield the lowest book value at the end of Year 3, which is the double- declining balance method in this case.
