Question;Question1The difference between game trees and decision trees is:Select one:A. that game trees are not useful in strategic situationsB. that decision trees describe actions that depend on the behavior ofrivalsC. that game trees have interactive payoffsD. that decision trees are a function of many individuals and the state ofnatureE. none of the aboveQuestion2If a firm has a dominant strategy:Select one:A. its optimal strategy depends on the play of rivalsB. its optimal strategy is always the same, even if payoffs changeC. it is determined by the behavior of only one key rivalD. it receives the same profits regardless of the strategy of rivalsE. its optimal strategy is independent of the play of rivalsQuestion3A Nash equilibrium occurs when:Select one:A. each player has a dominant strategyB. each player receives the same final payoffC. each player believes it is doing the best it can given the behavior ofrivalsD. there is no dominant strategy for any playerE. payoffs are independent of the actions taken by rivalsQuestion4If player 1 has a dominant strategy, then player 2:Select one:A. must also have a dominant strategyB. may or may not have a dominant strategy, but will always lead to a NashequilibriumC. may or may not have a dominant strategyD. will not be able to reach an optimal solution to the gameE. will block this dominant strategy and force player 1 to another strategyQuestion5Getting to a Nash equilibrium requires:Select one:A. each knowing the opponent's payoffs and cooperationB. knowing the opponent's payoffs but not cooperationC. cooperation but not knowing the opponent's payoffsD. neither cooperation nor knowing the opponent's payoffsE. either cooperation or knowing the opponent's payoffs, depending on thegameQuestion6Given the following payoff matrix, who has a dominant strategy?Select one:A. it depends on what the other player doesB. both playersC. neither playerD.
