B Due to the diminishing MPK, the slope of the production function is steeper when the corresponding level of capital per worker is lower (here the Lowland’s k ), therefore an extra unit of k will cause a larger increase of output per worker y . 3. C 4. A The answer comes directly from the definition of “steady state”. 5. D This problem asks how to solve for steady state k , the “k-star”. 6. B 7. D 8.

C Remember, if total output and population grow at the same rate, then our living standard will not change forever since output per person will be a constant. 12.
