The demand facing a bookstore will become more elastic.

The demand facing a bookstore will become more inelastic.

The demand facing a bookstore becomes horizontal.

The price elasticity of demand remains unchanged; only the cross-price elasticity

changes.

Question 2. Question : Suppose the value of the price elasticity of supply is 4. What does this mean?

A 4 percent increase in the price of the good causes quantity supplied to increase by 1 percent.

A 1 percent increase in the price of the good causes the supply curve to shift upward by 4 percent.

A 1 percent increase in the price of the good causes quantity supplied to increase by 4 percent.

For every \$1 increase in price, quantity supplied increases by 4 units.

Question 3. Question : Figure 6-4

Refer to Figure 6-4. Which of the following statements is true about the price elasticity of demand?

The elasticity coefficient is constant along the demand curve.

The elastic portion of straight-line downward sloping demand curve corresponds to the segment above the midpoint.

The inelastic portion of the demand curve corresponds to the segment above the midpoint.

At the midpoint of the demand curve, the elasticity coefficient is zero.

Question 4. Question : When demand is unit price elastic, a change in price causes total revenue to stay the same because

the percentage change in quantity demanded exactly offsets the percentage change in price.

total revenue never changes with price changes.

the change in profit is offset by the change in production cost.

Question 5. Question : Consider the following pairs of items:

Which of the pairs listed will have a positive cross-price elasticity?

a and b only

a, b, and c only

Now suppose the government passes comparable worth legislation that requires academic institutions to pay all faculty the same salaries.

Following the passage of comparable worth legislation, Unity College responds by placing salaries at \$Wabetween the two existing salaries. Which of the following is the result of the legislation?

The supply of English professors increase and the supply of business professors decrease.

The demand for English professors decrease and the demand for business professors increase.

There will be a surplus in the market for English professors and a shortage in the market for business professors.

There will be a surplus in the market for English professors and the market for business professors will not be affected.

Question 8. Question : Table 16-2

Refer to Table 16-2. What is the profit-maximizing quantity of labor that the firm should hire?

5 units

\$4 units

\$3 units

2 units

Question 9. Question : A decrease in the wage rate causes

an increase in the quantity of labor demanded.

a rightward shift of the firm's labor demand curve.

a leftward shift of the firm's labor demand curve.

a decrease in labor's productivity.

Question 10. Question : Suppose the government grants child care subsidies to mothers entering the labor force. What is likely to happen to the equilibrium wage and quantity of labor?

The equilibrium wage and the equilibrium quantity of labor rise.

The equilibrium wage and the equilibrium quantity of labor fall.

The equilibrium wage falls and the equilibrium quantity of labor rises.

The equilibrium wage rises and the equilibrium quantity of labor falls.
