a)BIT Bank

"ROA=\\frac{net profit}{assets}=\\frac{8}{48+360}=0.019"

"ROE=\\frac{net profit}{Bank Capital}=\\frac{8}{68}=0.118"

"leverage ratio=\\frac{deposits}{Bank Capital}=\\frac{340}{68}=5"

NAT Bank:

"ROA=\\frac{net profit}{assets}=\\frac{8}{48+360}=0.019"

"ROE=\\frac{net profit}{Bank Capital}=\\frac{8}{8}=1"

"leverage ratio=\\frac{deposits}{Bank Capital}=\\frac{400}{8}=50"

b)Attractive to shareholders is NAT Bank since the return on equity is higher. But this bank has a very high leverage

с) Bank NAT is riskier in case of loan depreciation at \$60 million:lower coverage

"\\frac{300}{400}=0.75"

"\\frac{300}{340}=0.88"
