Because it is a service industry, there is no Inventory and R&D is not necessary so they are 0. A high Asset Turnover: 4.130

B.Supermarket grocery retailer
Because there is no indication of the store locations, this could be very similar with the warehouse clubs. However, due to the retailing sizes that are sold in supermarkets, the inventory are supposed to be much lower than warehouse clubs. 

Supermarket grocery retailer v.s. H. Warehouse club for food and general merchandise They are very similar industry with high net plant &equipment and zero unearned revenue, but the inventory is higher for warehouse club because they keep wholesale quantities of products. Compared with supermarket grocery retailers, their gross margin is lower but net profit margin is higher. 

C.International hotel chain
Like the online retailer, this industry must have higher goodwill and intangibles. Also, hotels do not have inventory needs as much as other industries but obtain high NP&E. 
C. International hotel chain
