If a stock price of a company reduces, then it affects what in the balance sheet when given to choose -Current Assets, Current Liabilities, Net worth?

There is a question related to this in the session's quiz and the answer was none of the above so I would like to know how the net worth of the company is not affected when the stock price reduces?

As I strongly feel net worth of a company will be affected if the stock price reduces as the company's profitability is reduced or less and this has an direct impact in the net worth.

Stock price just reflects the market value of a stock of a company -- It varies depending on the investor sentiments & their future growth expectations of that particular firm. It will actually be the other way -- Company's profitability affects the company's stock price to an extent since investors feel more confident about the stock & buy the same if the firm shows good profitability for a quarter -- Thereby increasing its stock price due to its increased demand.
