Which of the following would increase the supply of corn? (Points : 3)An increase in the price of pesticides.A decrease in the demand for corn.A fall in the price of corn.A severe drought in the corn belt.A decrease in the price of wheat.4. Which of the following will cause a change in quantity supplied?

Use the following general linear demand relation to answer this question:Qd = 680  9P + 0.006M  4PR.Where M is income and PR is the price of a related good, R.From this relation it is apparent that the good is: (Points : 3)An inferior good.A substitute for good R.A normal good.A complement for good R.Both c and d.6. Use the following general linear demand relation to answer this question:Qd = 680  9P + 0.006M  4PR.If M = \$15,000 and PR = \$20, the demand function is: (Points : 3)P = 690 – 9QdQd = 690 – 9PQd = 680  9PP = 680  9QdQd = 800 -19P7. Use the following general linear demand relation to answer this question:Qd = 680  9P + 0.006M  4PR.If M = \$15,000 and PR = \$20 and the supply function is Qs = 30 + 3P , equilibrium price and quantity are, respectively, (Points : 3)P = \$55 and Q = 195P = \$6 and Q = 38P = \$12 and Q = 200P = \$50 and Q = 170P = \$40 and Q = 2508. Use the following general linear demand relation to answer this question:Qd = 680  9P + 0.006M  4PR.If M = \$15,000 and PR = \$20 and the supply function is Qs = 30 + 3P, then, when the price of the good is \$60, (Points : 3)There is a shortage of 60 units of the good.There is equilibrium in the market.There is a surplus of 60 units of the good.The quantities demanded and supplied are indeterminate.9. Suppose that the market for salad dressing is in equilibrium. Then the price of lettuce rises. What will happen? (Points : 3)The price of salad dressing will rise.The supply of salad dressing will decrease.The demand for salad dressing will decrease.The quantity demanded of salad dressing will increase.10. Suppose that the market for engagement rings is in equilibrium. Then political unrest in South Africa shuts down the diamond mines there. South Africa is the world’s primary supplier of diamonds. What will happen? (Points : 3)The equilibrium quantity of engagement rings will decrease.The equilibrium price of engagement rings will decrease.The demand for engagement rings will decrease.The supply of engagement rings will increase.11. In which of the following cases will the effect on equilibrium output be indeterminate (i.e., depend on the magnitudes of the shifts in supply and demand)? (Points : 3)Demand increases and supply increases.Demand decreases and supply decreases.Demand decreases and supply increases.Demand remains constant and supply increases.12. With a given supply curve, a decrease in demand leads to (Points : 3)A decrease in equilibrium price and an increase in equilibrium quantity.An increase in equilibrium price and a decrease in equilibrium quantity.A decrease in equilibrium price and a decrease in equilibrium quantity.No change in price and a decrease in equilibrium quantity.None of the above.13. Use the following general linear supply function to answer this question:Qs = 40 + 6P  8PI + 10FWhere Qs is the quantity supplied of the good, P is the price of the good, PI is the price of an input, and F is the number of firms producing the good.If PI = \$20 and F = 60 what is the equation of the supply function? (Points : 3)Qs = 400 + 6PQs = 40 + 8PP = 480 + 6QsQs = 480 + 6PNone of the above.14. Use the following general linear supply function to answer this question:Qs = 40 + 6P  8PI + 10Fthe equilibrium price and quantity are, respectively, (Points : 3)P = \$10 and Q = 640P = \$8 and Q = 326P = \$10 and Q = 540P = \$8 and Q = 640None of the above15. If the current price of a good is \$10, market demand is Qd = 400  20P, and market supply is Qs = -50 + 10P, then (Points : 3)More of the good is being produced than people want to buy.A lower price will increase the shortage.At the current price there is excess demand, or a shortage, of 150 units.Both b and c.All of the above.16. Yesterday’s newspaper reported the results of a study indicating that people who eat more bananas are more attractive to the opposite sex. What do you expect to happen to the market price and quantity of bananas? (Points : 3)Price will decrease, quantity will decrease.Price will decrease, quantity will increase.Price will increase, quantity will decrease.Price will increase, quantity will increase.17. In which of the following cases must price always fall? (Points : 3)Demand increases and supply increases.Demand decreases and supply decreases.Supply increases and demand remains constant.Demand decreases and supply increases.Both c and d.18. Consumer surplus (Points : 3)Is positive for all but the last unit purchased.For a particular unit of consumption is computed by taking the difference between demand price and market price.For all units consumed is the area below demand and above market price over all the units consumed.Added to producer surplus provides a measure of the net gain to society from the production and consumption of the good.All of the above.19.

##### Is there a possibility of plagiarism in my completed order?

We complete each paper from scratch and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check it for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism detection systems that are used by most universities (e.g. Turnitin.com), we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.

We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness.

##### Is there a money-back guarantee? If yes, how can I receive a refund?

You can certainly get your money back in several cases. You can receive a full refund if you have paid for your order twice or if you have placed two identical orders. In case your paper was late or the quality of the paper does not correspond to your expectations, you will get compensation for these issues.

##### Do you keep a database of pre-written essays?

No, we do not have such a database. All papers you order from us are written from scratch. This means your paper is unique and has never been published before—neither will it be published after we deliver it to you.

##### When will my custom paper be done?

While placing an order with WritersHub, you can choose a period of time within which a paper should be delivered to you. The countdown until the specified deadline starts automatically from the moment we receive your payment in our system. For example, if you pay for your order at 6pm on Monday and choose a 3-day delivery option, you will receive your custom paper by 6pm on Thursday.

Remember that a writer needs a sufficient amount of time in order to conduct thorough research. Therefore, please choose the most suitable deadline when you place an order. Moreover, the later you need your paper to be delivered to you, the cheaper it will be. Thus, you will be able to save your money while your writer will have enough time to work on your order and ensure its quality.

Make sure you upload all the additional materials at the very beginning. If you fail to do that, the deadline for your order will be postponed as well.

##### I haven’t received my custom paper by the deadline. What should I do?

Let us know immediately about that. You can do it by writing a message on Facebook or email us. Our support manager will carefully examine your order and will assist you with it right away.
