1. Suppose that both the equilibrium price and quantity of mustard rise. The most consistent explanation for these observations is A) a decrease in demand for mustard with no change in supply. B) a decrease in the supply of mustard with no change in demand. C) a decrease in demand for mustard and a decrease in the supply of mustard. D) an increase in demand for mustard with no change in supply. E) an increase in the supply of mustard with no change in demand. 2. A university observes that when it raises the price of football tickets, total revenue from football games increases and when they lower ticket prices, total revenue falls. This suggests A) football fans act irrationally. B) the demand for tickets to football games must be elastic. C) there are many good substitutes for college football games. D) the demand for tickets to football games must be inelastic. E) the demand for tickets to football games is unit elastic. Price/ Unit Column A Units/year Column B Units/ year \$20 100 50 \$30 85 60 \$40 70 70 \$50 55 80 \$60 40 90 3. Assume that column A and column B are demand and supply curves. At a price of \$50, the market would experience A) an equilibrium. B) excess demand of 25 units C) excess supply of 25 units D) excess demand of 10 units E) excess supply of 10 units 4. One observes that the equilibrium price of rice falls and the equilibrium quantity falls. Which of the following best fits the observed data? A) An increase in demand with supply constant. B) An increase in demand coupled with a decrease in supply. C) An increase in demand coupled with an increase in supply. D) A decrease in demand with supply constant. E) Demand constant and an increase in supply. Page 1
5. A cross price elasticity of 0.83 indicates the two goods are A) substitutes. B) inelastic. C) complements. D) normal. E) elastic. 6. If the slope of the demand curve is zero, the price elasticity of demand will be A) perfectly inelastic. B) inelastic. C) unit elastic. D) elastic. E) perfectly elastic. 7. A decrease in the demand for bananas with no concurrent change in the supply of bananas will result in a ________ equilibrium price and a(n) ________ equilibrium quantity. A) higher; lower B) lower; lower C) higher; unchanged D) higher; higher E) lower; higher 8. For OutBack Steakhouse, seating capacity is limited in the short run. In the long run they can add as many seats as they want. Therefore, the price elasticity of supply for the meals in OutBack would be_____ in the short run than in the long run.
