Thank you for contacting us to assist you today. My name is ***** ***** my goal is to provide information to the best of my knowledge to assist you.
The expert that you requested is not available at this time.
To answer your question, (C) Stock dividend is the correct answer.
Why is the C the answer, you ask? Because the total amount of cash distributed by cash dividends is charged against, and reduces, the retained earnings of the company, and thus decreases stockholders' equity.
