The diagram demonstrates that an increase in the;price of soda will;raise the quantity demanded of soda.;reduce the quantity demanded of soda.;raise the quantity demanded of chocolate bars.;raise the consumer's available income.;Since the budget line rotated in, fewer sodas were bought as the price;of soda rose. This demonstrates the law of demand. Although the law of demand;is technically based only on the substitution effect, consumer real income;(purchasing power of a dollar) also falls. In this case, reduced consumption;comes about from both the income effect and the substitution effect.;Multiple Choice;Difficulty: 2 Medium;Section: Indifference Curve Analysis;MC Qu. 125 Refer to the graph shown.
