2. The law of demand states that: When demand for a good increases, beyond some point, the price will necessarily begin to increase. Goods that are more scarce tend to be more expensive. When a good or service is less available, people don't consume as much of it; therefore, the price will fall. There is a negative (or inverse) relationship between the price and the quantity demanded of a good or service. 3. Refer to the graph below. Which move illustrates the impact of a decrease in market price on market demand, all else the same? The move from A to B. The move from A to C. Both moves show the same result on demand.

This means that: There is a positive relationship between preferences and demand for the good. There is a negative relationship between preferences and demand for the good. There is no relationship between preferences and demand for a good or service. A negative relationship between preferences and demand exists, but the relationship could be positive some of the time. 5. Refer to the graph below.
