Interest income. ==> investing

Finance cost paid on debenture ==> Finanacing

Gain on sale of investment ==> investment

depriciation on fixed assets==> operating

amortization expenses==> operating

Cashflow from operating activities= (269244)+(95780)-(2600)-(35000)+(12000)-(45000)+(85000)+(110000)= 466024 (answer)

Explanation

Depriciation although operating item but does not result into outflow of cash. Since it has been deducted to arrive at the figure of net profit before taxes the same must be added to arrive at cash flows, Similarly we shall treat amortization expenses

Depriciation vs amortization

depriciation word is used for tangible assets( as 10)

Amortization is for intangible assets (as 26)
