  2. Improved cash flow – is correct because cash outflows are decreased.
  3. Reduced interest payments – is not correct because interest rates do not affect delayed paying to suppliers.
  4. Improved relationship with suppliers – is not correct because delaying payment would have the opposite effect on suppliers.
