6. (Scenario: Consumption Spending) The marginal propensity to save is: A) $500. B) 0 C) 0.8. D) 0.2. 7. When David has no income, he spends $700. If his income increases to $2,000, he spends $1,700. Which of the following represents his consumption function? A) C = $500 + 0.7 × YD . B) C = $700 + 0.5 × YD . C) C = $700 + 0.7 × YD . D) C = $1000 + 0.5 × YD . 8. David receives a tax refund of $800. He spends $600 and saves $200. David's marginal propensity to consume is: A) 0.6. B) 0.75. C) 0.25. D) 0.20. 9. Assume that the marginal propensity to consume is 0.5, autonomous consumption is $10,000, and disposable income is $40,000. If disposable income were expected to increase in the future, the consumption function might take the form of: A) C = 10,000 + (0.5 x 40,000). B) C = 12,000 + (0.5 x 40,000). C) C = 10,000 + (0.7 x 40,000). D) C = 10,000 + (0.5 x 42,000). 10. If the marginal propensity to consume is 0.5, individual autonomous consumption is $10,000, and disposable income is $40,000, then individual consumption spending is: A) $20,000. B) $25,000. C) $30,000. D) $45,000. Page 4
