Two neighbors, countries A and B, produce books and blankets, among other goods and services. However, Country A produces more of both goods than country B. A student of economics, Maya, also notes that in
both countries, these industries individually employ 30 percent of the population. She concludes that country A has an absolute advantage in the production of books and blankets over country B.
Maya's conclusion is flawed because
O A. she assumes that country A does not face increasing marginal opportunity cost when shifting resources from one industry to the other.
O B. she assumes that the productivity of workers in both countries is identical.
O C. she assumes that both countries have linear production possibilities frontiers.
O D. she assumes that country A has more liberal trade policies than country B.
O E. she assumes that country A's population is no larger than country B's.
