Brought down balance...

I have come to a questions in one of my assignments which I have hit a wall with, I don't know if this is purely because Iv been doing this for the past 3 hours or just that I'm being stupid either way i need someone help...
The question is 'WHAT IS THE BROUGHT DOWN BALANCE ON THE FOLLOWING ACCOUNT?

Above are the potential answers, I think the reason why I'm so confused is as there is no amounts on the DR (DEBIT) side. PLEASE HELP!!! /Users/michaelfitzpatrick/Desktop/QUESTION 30.docx

    THE ENTRIES ARE ON THE CREDIT SIDE, THERE ARE NO ENTRIES ON DEBIT SIDE

    If it is the Sales Account, (and not the Sales Ledger Control Account) then the closing balance would be transferred to the Statement of Profit of Loss, and would start the next period at zero so I would be inclined towards c)
