      • A. $0.

      The correct answer is A.

      Under IFRS, the value of inventory is written down if the carrying value of inventory is greater than the net realizable value (NRV) (or the selling price minus the selling cost). Since the carrying value of inventory is less than the NRV, the inventory will not be written down and no loss will be recognized.
