least until it;crosses;the market demand curve.;D);lead to a legal barrier to entry.;E);exist along the long-run;average cost curve at least until it crosses the market demand;curve.;89);90);A natural monopoly;A);occurs when one firm controls a natural resource.;B);arises when one firm can meet the entire market demand at a lower average total;cost than;two;or more firms.;C);arises as a result of legal barriers to entry.;D);Both answers A and B are correct.;E);Both answers A and C are correct.;90);91);A natural barrier to entry is defined as a barrier that arises because of;A);technology that

barriers to entry.;B);many substitutes.;C);one supplier.;D);many suppliers each producing an identical product.;E);many suppliers each producing a slightly different product.;94);95);Technology reduces the average cost of production, so in the long run;i.;perfectly competitive firms produce at a lower average cost.;ii.;the market price of the good falls.;iii.;firms with older plants either exit the market or adopt the new technology.;A);i and ii.;B);i only.;C);iii only.;D);i and iii.;E);i, ii, and iii.;95);96);When a firm adopts new technology, generally its;A);cost curves are unaffected.;B);cost curves shift downward.;C);production permanently decreases.;D);supply curve shifts leftward.;E);cost curves shift upward.;96);97);Suppose a perfectly competitive market is in long-run equilibrium with a price of $12. Then;there;is a permanent increase in demand. As a result, in the short run the market;price;and;in the long run the number of firms ________ and the price is ________ the;price was in the;short;run.;A);falls, decreases, is equal to;B);rises, does not change, lower than;C);rises, increases, higher than;D);rises, increases, lower than;E);rises, does not change, is equal to;97);98);Keith is a perfectly competitive carnation grower. The market price is $2 per;dozen carnations.;Keith's;average total cost to grow carnations is $2.50 per dozen.
