Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    We can argue that transport presents a single problem in the sense that public control over one agency inevitably has repercussions on the other agencies.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement suggests that public control over one transportation agency will have an impact on other transportation agencies. This implies that the different transportation agencies are interconnected and their operations are influenced by each other. Therefore, the statement is true.

    If transport services are a multiple homogeneous unit, we would still need to ensure that there was no uneven allocation of resources between transport and the other sectors of the economy.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that even if transport services are considered as a multiple homogeneous unit, it is still necessary to ensure that resources are allocated evenly between transport and other sectors of the economy. However, the correct answer is False, indicating that this statement is incorrect. Therefore, it implies that there is no need to ensure an equal allocation of resources between transport and other sectors, even if transport services are considered as a multiple homogeneous unit.

    The closer the available substitutes are, the more elastic the supply for the service is.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the elasticity of supply for a service is not determined by the availability of substitutes, but rather by the ability of suppliers to easily adjust the quantity of the service they provide in response to changes in price. The availability of substitutes may affect the demand for a service, but it does not directly impact the supply side.

    Storage of goods allows the goods to be held until they may be required.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Storage of goods is the process of keeping goods in a secure location until they are needed. This allows businesses to have inventory on hand to fulfill customer orders and maintain a continuous supply chain. By storing goods, businesses can also take advantage of bulk purchasing and seasonal fluctuations in demand. Therefore, it is true that storage of goods allows them to be held until they may be required.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    ______ assumes that there is an opportunity to select production and consumption times, and that natural conditions do not impose any restrictions on either.

    • A.

      Natural conditions

    • B.

      Convenience

    • C.

      National policy

    Correct Answer
    B. Convenience
    Explanation
    Convenience assumes that there is flexibility in selecting production and consumption times, without any restrictions imposed by natural conditions. This means that the production and consumption activities can be scheduled at the most convenient times for the individuals or businesses involved, allowing for greater efficiency and convenience in the overall process.

  • 6. 

    People will seek transport services without some economic, social or political need, and those concerned are willing to bear the cost of such a service.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that people will seek transport services even without any economic, social, or political need, and they are willing to bear the cost of such a service. However, this statement is false. Generally, people seek transport services when they have a specific need or purpose, such as commuting to work, traveling to a destination, or fulfilling social obligations. Without any need or purpose, people are unlikely to seek transport services and bear the associated costs.

    • A.

      True
