    Which of the following statements cannot result to productivity-increasing?

    • A.

      Increasing output while input kept constant

    • B.

      Decreasing input while output kept constant

    • C.

      Increasing input while decreasing output

    • D.

      Increasing production(output) while decreasing input

    Correct Answer
    C. Increasing input while decreasing output
    Explanation
    Increasing input while decreasing output cannot result in productivity-increasing because productivity is measured by the ratio of output to input. When input is increased while output is decreased, the ratio of output to input will decrease, indicating a decrease in productivity. Therefore, this statement contradicts the concept of productivity-increasing.

    • C.

      Net inputs/(Labor inputs + Capital inputs)

    • D.

      Indicates how much of a particular kind of input it takes to produce an output

    Correct Answer
    A. The ratio of net output to the labour and capital inputs
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The ratio of net output to the labour and capital inputs." This answer accurately describes total factor productivity, which measures the efficiency and effectiveness of using labor and capital inputs to produce output. It calculates the ratio of net output (output after deducting the inputs) to the combined labor and capital inputs. This ratio indicates the productivity of the inputs and how efficiently they are being utilized in the production process.
