quick ratio
Explanation:
Just a quick guess for you... not 100% certain without more context.

Definition of quick ratio, also known as acid test, from: www.greekshares.com/termin4.asp: Indicator of a company's financial strength (or weakness). Calculated by taking current assets less inventories, divided by current liabilities.

Here's an online example:

O índice de liquidez seca (ou quick ratio), ou índice acid-test, é similar ao índice de liquidez corrente (ou current ratio), exceto que o estoque é excluído... www.bertolo.pro.br/AdminFin/HTML/Revisão_cap_03.htm

Acid test ratio


Explanation:
A liquidez seca é um indicador favorável que demonstra o crescimento das empresas sem venda de estoques, já que traduz o ativo circulante (menos os estoques) dividido pelo passivo circulante.

Acid test ratio

The acid test ratio is similar to the current ratio as it highlights the liquidity of the company. A ratio of 1:1 (i.e. a value of approximately 1) is satisfactory. However, if the value is significantly less than 1 it implies that the company has a large amount of its cash tied up in unproductive assets, so the company may struggle to raise money in the short term.

Acid test ratio = (current assets - stock) / current liabilities
