b.33.c.21.75.d.26.e.30.50.ANS: A DIF: 229.In a crowded city far away, the civic authorities decided that rents were too high. The long-run supply function of two-room rental apartments was given byq145p, and the long-run demandfunction was given byq3295p, wherepis the rental rate in crowns per week. The authorities madeit illegal to rent an apartment for more than 25 crowns per week. To avoid a housing shortage, theauthorities agreed to pay landlords enough of a subsidy to make supply equal to demand. How muchwould the weekly subsidy per apartment have to be to eliminate excess demand at the ceiling price?a.6.50 crownsb.10 crownsc.13 crownsd.26 crownse.19.50 crownsANS: C DIF: 130.In a crowded city far away, the civic authorities decided that rents were too high.

The supply elasticity for this product is constant andequal to 4. Originally the equilibrium price of this good was $15 per unit. Then it was discovered thatconsumption of this product was unhealthy. The quantity that would be demanded at any price fell by11%. The percent change in the long-run equilibrium consumption of this good wasa.11%.b.8%.

The king puts all of the coconutsthat he collects in a large pile and burns them. The supply of coconuts is given byS(ps)100ps, wherepsis the price received by suppliers. The demand for coconuts by the king’s subjects is given byD(pd)1,500100pd, wherepdis the price paid by consumers. In equilibrium, the price received by supplierswill bea.$6.
