    D. Entrepreneur
    Explanation
    An entrepreneur is an individual who takes on the responsibility of creating, organizing, and owning a business. They are often driven by a desire to innovate and take risks in order to achieve success. Unlike an investor who typically provides financial support but may not be involved in the day-to-day operations of the business, an entrepreneur actively manages and leads their venture. A business broker, on the other hand, is someone who facilitates the buying and selling of businesses but does not necessarily create or own them. A role model is someone who serves as an inspiration or example to others, but does not necessarily undertake the creation and ownership of a business.

Profit is an essential aspect of running a business as it allows for growth, reinvestment, and distribution to shareholders.

    A franchiser is the correct answer because they are the seller of a franchise. A franchise is a business model where the franchiser grants the rights to another party (the franchisee) to operate a business using their brand, products, and systems. The franchiser typically provides support, training, and ongoing assistance to the franchisee in exchange for fees or royalties. Therefore, the term "franchiser" accurately describes the seller in this context.

    Explanation
    To identify consumer markets, being aware of demographic changes is crucial. Demographic changes refer to shifts in the characteristics of a population, such as age, gender, income, and ethnicity. These changes can significantly impact consumer behavior and preferences. By understanding demographic trends, businesses can tailor their marketing strategies and product offerings to effectively target specific consumer segments. For example, an aging population may require products and services that cater to their specific needs, while a younger demographic may be more interested in technology-driven products. Therefore, being aware of demographic changes is essential for businesses to successfully identify and tap into consumer markets.

    Correct Answer
    B. Joint venture
    Explanation
    A joint venture refers to a partnership formed by two or more companies for a specific purpose and a defined period of time. In a joint venture, the participating companies collaborate and pool their resources to achieve a common goal. This arrangement allows the companies to share risks, costs, and expertise while maintaining their individual identities. Unlike a franchise, which involves one company granting another the right to operate under its brand, a joint venture involves a temporary collaboration between multiple companies. It is different from an investment, which typically involves one company providing funds to another without actively participating in its operations. A strategic alliance is a broader term that encompasses various forms of partnerships, including joint ventures.

    If a small change in the price of an item causes a significant change in the quantity demanded, we say that the demand for the item is:

    • A.

      Inelastic

    • B.

      Scarce

    • C.

      High

    • D.

      Elastic

    Correct Answer
    D. Elastic
    Explanation
    If a small change in the price of an item causes a significant change in the quantity demanded, we say that the demand for the item is elastic. This means that consumers are highly responsive to changes in price, and a small increase in price will result in a large decrease in quantity demanded, and vice versa. Elastic demand indicates that the demand for the item is sensitive to price changes, and consumers are likely to switch to alternatives if the price increases.

    Correct Answer
    B. Investment
    Explanation
    The amount of money one puts into a business is commonly referred to as an investment. This term implies that the money is being used to generate future returns or profits. It signifies the act of allocating funds with the expectation of gaining a financial return or benefit from the business venture. The other options provided (market, profit, capital) do not specifically refer to the act of putting money into a business, making them incorrect choices.

      Equilibrium

    • B.

      Profit

    • C.

      Capital

    • D.

      Investment

    Correct Answer
    A. Equilibrium
    Explanation
    Equilibrium refers to the point where the quantity of a product demanded by consumers matches the quantity supplied by producers. At this point, there is no excess supply or demand, resulting in a stable market condition. It represents a balance between the buyers and sellers, where the market price is set and all available units of the product are sold. Therefore, equilibrium is the appropriate term to describe the point at which consumers buy all of a product that is supplied.

This uncertainty can arise due to various factors such as market conditions, customer demand, and the success of their business ventures. The lack of a stable and predictable income can make financial planning and budgeting challenging, adding an additional layer of risk to being self-employed.
