33.Bubble in “B” on your scantron to acknowledge that you have correctly bubbled in your name and student ID numbers in the appropriate spaces on the left-hand side of your scantron.34.This is a multiple choice extra credit question and will be worth the equivalent of two test questions, but the possible answers (A-E) will not be displayed until shortly before I pick up the tests. Hence, in order to answer correctly, you'll need to work through the problem to the end on your own, and if you've gotten it cor-rect then your answer will be one of the options. If you did not get to the correct answer, there's no penalty for guessing. However, I will not permit any extra credit if you turn in the test early. You're welcome to leave, but if you want the shot at extra credit, stay put, keep your test, and work through this problem.Using the following information and assuming that the circular flow model is accurate, calculate Real GDP.Hint: In trying to remember all the components that go into GDP, try sketching out the circular flow model including the role of firms, households, government, financial markets, and the rest of the world along with how to money flows into and out of each and the decisions they make.Consumption: 600Expected inflation rate: 2.5%Exports: 250Labor Force Participation rate: 42%GDP Price index: 200Government purchases: 400Government borrowing: 0Rent payments: 200Savings: 200Wages: 700
