the demand curve shifts very   little when a demand shifter changes.

the percentage   change in quantity demanded is relatively small in response to a relatively   large percentage change in price.

all of the above are true.

Question 2 (10 points)

Question 6 options:

always positive.

always greater than 1.

always negative.

Question 7 (10 points)

A men’s tie store sold an average of 30 ties per day when the price was \$5 per tie but sold 50 of the same ties per day when the price was \$3 per tie. Hence, the absolute value of the price elasticity of demand is:

greater than zero but less than 1.

equal to 1.

greater than 1 but less than 3.

greater than 3.

Question 8 (10 points)

Question 8 options:

unstable.

price inelastic.

price elastic.

unit price elastic.

Question 9 (10 points)

Question 9 options:

total revenue.

production possibilities.

elasticity.

slope.

Question 10 (10 points)

The price elasticity of a good will tend to be greater:

Question 10 options:

the longer the   relevant time period.

the fewer number of substitute   goods available.

if it is a staple or necessity   with few substitutes.

All of the above are true.

(Exhibit: Supply and Demand in Agriculture) To help farmers:

Question 11 options:

a price floor would   be set at P4, causing a surplus of Q3 – Q0.

a price floor would be set at P2,   causing a surplus of Q2 – Q0.

a price ceiling would be set at P4,   causing a surplus of Q2 – Q1.

a price floor would be set at P1,   causing a shortage of Q3 – Q0.

Question 12 (10 points)

(Exhibit: Supply and Demand in Agriculture) If a price floor at P4 is set to help farmers in terms of income and government wants to assure farmers that their output will be purchased, the government would have to purchase an amount of output equal to:

(Exhibit: Supply and Demand in Agriculture) If the government set an effective price floor at one of the prices shown on the vertical axis:

Question 13 options:

with this much wheat on the market,   the price would fall to P1.

Q3 bushels   of wheat would be supplied.

the resulting shortage would be   made up by the government out of its accumulated stocks.

all of the above would be true.
