Since this is not a sale made by you with merchandise being returned to you, it is not C. Since the items were returned prior to payment taking the discount, they are not returned at a discounted price. 

B. Accounts payable will be debited by $53. This is because the sales tax is collected by the seller, and is part of the total invoice price. The equation to find the 53 is 5*10*1.06.
