Welcome to NEFMQ2010 Mini Quiz 1!
This quiz consists of 10 compulsory multiple choice questions and accounts for 10% of the preliminary scores.

• 1.

### John is currently working as a school teacher that pays him \$65000 a year. Of late, he has been thinking of starting his own tuition centre. He can potentially take in 100 students and charge them \$250 per month. However, he will have to fork out \$8000 per month for rental. What is the total opportunity cost he faces per annum if he chooses to remain as a school teacher?

• A.

\$0

• B.

\$139 000

• C.

\$204 000

• D.

\$300 000

C. \$204 000
Explanation
John's total opportunity cost if he chooses to remain as a school teacher is \$204,000. This is calculated by subtracting his potential earnings from the tuition center (\$250 per month per student * 100 students * 12 months) from his current salary as a school teacher (\$65,000). Therefore, the opportunity cost is \$250,000 - \$65,000 = \$204,000.

If there were deviations, the real exchange rate would appreciate or depreciate without end. This means that the value of the currency would continuously increase or decrease without any limit.

### 1.      A commercial bank has \$5000 in excess reserves and the reserve ratio is 30%. The bank must have:

• A.

\$90,000 in outstanding loans and \$35,000 in reserves.

• B.

\$90,000 in checkable deposit liabilities and \$32,000 in reserves.

• C.

\$90,000 in checkable deposit liabilities and \$35,000 in reserves.

• D.

\$20,000 in checkable deposit liabilities and \$10,000 in reserves.

B. \$90,000 in checkable deposit liabilities and \$32,000 in reserves.
Explanation
The correct answer is \$90,000 in checkable deposit liabilities and \$32,000 in reserves. This is because the bank has \$5,000 in excess reserves, which means it can lend out \$5,000 x (1/0.3) = \$16,667. This amount is added to the initial reserves of \$5,000, resulting in a total of \$21,667 in reserves. The checkable deposit liabilities must be 10 times the amount of reserves, so \$21,667 x 10 = \$216,670. However, since the initial reserves were \$5,000, the actual checkable deposit liabilities must be \$216,670 - \$5,000 = \$211,670. Therefore, the correct answer is \$90,000 in checkable deposit liabilities and \$32,000 in reserves.

• B.

Shocks move short-run aggregate supply curve .

• C.

Shocks move long-run aggregate supply curve.

• D.

Investment depends upon the growth of real GDP.

C. Shocks move long-run aggregate supply curve.
Explanation
In the real business cycle model, short-run fluctuations in real GDP occur when shocks move the long-run aggregate supply curve. This means that unexpected changes in factors such as technology, productivity, or input costs can cause shifts in the long-run aggregate supply curve, leading to changes in real GDP in the short run. These fluctuations are not caused by gradual price adjustments or changes in investment dependent on the growth of real GDP.
