At point C, demand is;completely;inelastic.inelastic, but;not completely inelastic.unit elastic.elastic, but;not infinitely elastic.7. The assumption of transitive;preferences implies indifference curves must;not cross one another.have a positive;slope.be L-shaped.be convex to;the origin.8. Indifference curves are convex to the;origin because of;transitivity of;consumer preferences.the assumption of a diminishing marginal rate of substitution.the assumption;that more is preferred to less.the assumption;of completeness.9. Alvin?s;preferences for good X and good Y are shown in the diagram below. Based on the;diagram, it can be inferred that;Alvin does not;consider good X as ?good?.Alvin will;never purchase any of good Y.Alvin regards good X and good Y as perfect;substitutes.Alvin regards;good X and good Y as perfect complements.10. A;consumer has $100 per day to spend on product A, which has a unit price of $7;and product B, which has a unit price of $15.;What is the slope of the budget line if good A is on the horizontal axis;and good B is on the vertical axis;-7/15.-7/100-15/7.7/15.11. An individual demand curve can be derived;from which of the following curves;price-consumptionprice-incomeincome-substitutionincome-consumption 12. The curve in the diagram above is called;the;price-consumption curve.the demand;curve.the;income-consumption curve.the Engel curve.13. Which of the following is true concerning;the substitution effect of a decrease in price;It will lead to;an increase in consumption only for a normal good.It always will lead to an increase in consumption.It will lead to;an increase in consumption only for an inferior good.It will lead to;an increase in consumption only for a Giffen good.14. A;consumer?s original utility maximizing market basket of goods is shown in the;diagram above as point A. Following a price change, the consumer?s utility;maximizing market basket changes is at point B.

A;function that indicates the maximum output per unit of time that a firm can;produce, for every combination of inputs with a given technology, is called;an isoquant.a production;possibility curve.a production function.an isocost;function.16. The marginal product of an input is;total product;divided by the amount of the input used to produce this amount of output.the addition to;total output that adds nothing to profit.the addition to;total output due to the addition of one unit of all other inputs.the addition to total output due to the addition of;the last unit of an input, holding all other inputs constant.17. The;rate at which one input can be reduced per additional unit of the other input;while holding output constant, is measured by the;marginal rate;of substitution.marginal rate of technical substitution.slope of the;isocost curve.average product;of the input.
