  1. Answer: b. $0

    Explanation:

    Long-term liabilities are those that the company will owe for more than one trading period of the company which is usually a year. If the debt is going to be repaid within a year, it will be considered short term.

    The $2.2 million is payable on February 28 which means that on 31 December, it is less than a year till it is paid. All of it therefore is to be considered short term and no portion considered long.
