    d. A disclosure of a gain contingency of an undetermined amount in the range of $30 million to $60 million.

    Explanation:

    Data provided in the question

    Estimated amount range in between $30 million to $60 million

    Now awarded amount = $40 million

    So the financial statement should be recorded a disclosure of a gain contingency i. e to be undetermined between the range of $30 million to $60 million

    As according to the GAAP the contingency gain should be recognized until it is realized plus the disclosure should also be shown on the footnotes and proper accuracy should be maintained so that it can avoid the misleading information
