    Under increasing returns the supply curve is

    • A.

      Positively slopped from left to right

    • B.

      Negatively slopped from left to right

    • C.

    • D.

      Parallel to the price-axis

    Correct Answer
    B. Negatively slopped from left to right
    Explanation
    Under increasing returns, the supply curve is negatively sloped from left to right. This means that as the quantity of a good or service increases, the price at which it is supplied decreases. This is because as production increases, economies of scale are achieved, resulting in lower average costs of production. As a result, producers are willing to supply more quantity at lower prices, leading to a downward sloping supply curve.

    • A.

      Perfect competition

    • B.

      Imperfect competition

    • C.

      Monopolistic competition

    • D.

      Oligopoly

    Correct Answer
    C. Monopolistic competition
    Explanation
    Monopolistic competition refers to a market situation where there are many firms selling similar but not identical products. In this type of competition, each firm has some control over the price and quality of its product, but there is still some level of competition from other firms. This market structure is characterized by product differentiation, meaning that firms try to distinguish their products through branding, advertising, or other means. As a result, firms in monopolistic competition have some degree of market power, but there is still enough competition to prevent them from being true monopolies.

      Aggregate supply

      Effective demand

    • D.

      Rate of interest

    C. Effective demand
    Explanation
    According to John Maynard Keynes, employment depends on effective demand. Effective demand refers to the total spending by households, businesses, and the government in an economy. Keynes argued that when there is insufficient effective demand, businesses will not invest and hire workers, leading to unemployment. Therefore, to stimulate employment, it is necessary to increase effective demand through policies such as government spending or reducing interest rates to encourage borrowing and spending.

    Which one of the following is not an assumption in the law of demand?

    • A.

      There are no changes in the taste and preferences of consumers

    • B.

      Income of consumers remains constant

    • C.

      Consumers are affected by demonstration effect

    • D.

      There are no changes in the price of substitute goods

    Correct Answer
    C. Consumers are affected by demonstration effect
    Explanation
    The assumption in the law of demand is that consumers are not affected by the demonstration effect. The law of demand states that as the price of a good or service increases, the quantity demanded decreases, assuming all other factors remain constant. The demonstration effect refers to the influence of others' consumption choices on an individual's preferences and demand. Therefore, if consumers are affected by the demonstration effect, it means that their preferences and demand can be influenced by others, which contradicts the assumption of the law of demand.
