7) Suppose that an increase in capital per hour worked from \$15,000 to \$20,000 increases real GDP per hour worked by \$500. If capital per hour worked increases further to \$25,000, by how much would you expect real GDP per hour worked to increase if there are diminishing returns?A) by less than \$500B) by exactly \$500C) by more than \$500 but less than \$5,000D) by more than \$5,000 but less than \$20,000Answer: ADiff: 2 Type: MC Page Ref: 182-183Topic: Per-Worker Production FunctionLearning Outcome: 7.2 Use the economic growth model to explain why growth rates differ across countriesAACSB: Reflective ThinkingSpecial Feature: None62© 2015
