Unformatted text preview: ˇ Copiˇ c, Ec101, Fall 2009, Midterm 1, 10/27/2009, Answer Key to version 1. Remark: The answer key below gives a pretty complete analysis of problems. 1. c. Purestrategy Nash equilibria are clear, the mixed equilibrium is computed the same way as in the notes (find the probabilities that make the other player indifferent between his two actions). 2. d. Use backward induction: if 1 plays L, player 2 prefers to play D, and if 1 plays R, 2 plays u. Hence, player 1 prefers playing R. 3. b. If 1 played R, 2 would be better off playing u  so that 2’s threat is not credible. However, given 2’s strategy, 1 is better off playing L, so that this is a Nash eq, but not a subgameperfect NE. 4. d. If a player optimizes in every situation he would only carry out credible threats. 5. b. This is clear (note that a. is not true  not every Nash equilibrium is a dominant strategy equilibrium). 6. c....
