    According to the Law of Supply and Demand, when supply is high, prices will

    • A.

      Drop

    • B.

      Rise

    Correct Answer
    A. Drop
    Explanation
    According to the Law of Supply and Demand, when supply is high, there is an excess of goods or services available in the market. This leads to increased competition among suppliers, resulting in a decrease in prices. As a result, consumers are more likely to purchase the product or service, leading to a drop in prices.

  • 7. 

    According to the Law of Supply and Demand, when supply is low and demand is high, prices will

    • A.

      Drop

    • B.

      Rise

    Correct Answer
    B. Rise
    Explanation
    According to the Law of Supply and Demand, when supply is low and demand is high, prices will rise. This is because when there is a limited supply of a product or service and a high demand for it, sellers can increase the price to maximize their profits. As more people compete for the limited supply, the price will continue to rise until it reaches a point where the demand decreases or the supply increases, restoring the balance between supply and demand.
