Player 1 is in the lower left-hand corner; player 2 is in the upper right-hand corner. Player 1 likes apples but gets no utility from the consumption of oranges. Player 2 likes oranges but gets no utility from the consumption of apples. In the initial endowment, Player 1 has 5 apples and 4 oranges. Player 2 also has 5 apples and 4 oranges. What is the contract curve?
