One of the measures of leverage is the ratio of debt to equity. This site explains and gives an example.

Liquidity ratio shows the ability to pay off the company's short-term debts.

These sites should get you started.

If you need help with the others, Google profitability ratio, operating ratio, and solvency ratio.
