    D. 118.08 days

    Explanation:

    We know,

    Days sales inventory = 365 days : Inventory Turnover

    To determine the days sales inventory, we have to find inventory turnover.

    So, We know,

    Inventory turnover = Cost of goods sold : Average Inventory

    Given,

    Cost of goods sold = $579,300

    Average Inventory = (Beginning Inventory + Ending Inventory) : 2

    Since, there is no beginning and ending inventory, the inventory remains the average inventory.

    Therefore, average inventory = $187,400

    Putting the values into the inventory turnover formula, we can get,

    Inventory turnover = $579,300 : $187,400

    or, Inventory turnover = 3.09 times

    Therefore,

    Days sales inventory = 365 days : Inventory Turnover

    or, Days sales inventory = 365 days : 3.09

    Therefore, Days sales inventory = 118.08 days. So, D is the answer.
