Quiz Submissions - Week 2 Quiz (Chapter 3)

Question 1

A shift of a demand curve to the right, all other things unchanged, will:

Question options:

·         increase equilibrium price and quantity.

·         decrease equilibrium price and quantity.

·         decrease quantity and increase price.

·         increase quantity and decrease price.

Question 2

If the current price is above the equilibrium price, we would expect:

·         quantity demanded to exceed quantity supplied.

·         upward pressure on price.

·         quantity supplied to exceed quantity demanded.

·         no change in the market price.

Question 3

Demand is defined as:

·         an amount that is purchased at a specific price, given supply.

·         a schedule that establishes the price of a good.

·         a schedule that shows how much will be purchased at various prices during a particular period, all other things unchanged.

·         the amount that will be bought at a specific price.

Question 4

The primary difference between a change in demand and a change in the quantity demanded is:

·         a change in demand is a movement along the demand curve, and a change in quantity demanded is a shift in the demand curve.

·         a change in quantity demanded is a movement along the demand curve, and a change in demand is a shift in the demand curve.

·         both a change in quantity demanded and a change in demand are shifts in the demand curve, only in different directions.

·         both a change in quantity demanded and a change in demand are movements along the demand curve, only in different directions.

Question 5

A negative relationship between the quantity demanded and price is called the law of ______.

·         demand

·         diminishing marginal returns

·         market clearing

·         supply

Question 6

The relationship between the quantity of a good or service sellers are willing and able to offer for sale and the independent variables that determine quantity is:

·         supply.

·         demand.

·         equilibrium.

·         disequilibrium.

Question 7

A price below the equilibrium price will:

·         result in pressure for price to rise.

·         result in a surplus.

·         never be the case.

·         result in pressure for price to fall.

Question 8

It is true that the equilibrium quantity will always go up if supply:

·         and demand both increase.

·         increases and demand decreases.

·         and demand both decrease.

·         decreases and demand remains unchanged.

Question 9

The intersection of the supply and demand curves indicates:

·         the equilibrium solution in the market.

·         a surplus that will cause the price to fall.

·         a shortage that will cause the price to rise.

·         the quantity demanded exceeds the quantity supplied.

Question 10

A decrease in supply means:

·         a shift to the left of the entire supply curve.

·         moving downward (to the left) along the supply curve with lower prices.

·         less will be demanded at every price.

·         more will be supplied at every price.

·         Demand & Supply Schedule

Question 11

(Exhibit: Demand and Supply Schedules for a Good) The equilibrium price is ________ and the equilibrium quantity is ________.

·         \$2.00; 230 units

·         \$3.00; 240 units

·         \$4.00; 210 units

·         impossible to determine; impossible to determine

Question 12

(Exhibit: Demand and Supply Schedules for a Good.) If there were an increase in demand by 50 units at each price, the equilibrium price and quantity would be ________ and ________ units, respectively.

·       \$2.00; 310

·         \$2.50; 295

·         \$3.00; 290

·         \$3.50; 250

Question 13

(Exhibit: Supply and Demand Schedules for a Good) If there were a decrease in supply by 100 units at each price, the equilibrium price and quantity would be ________ and ________ units, respectively.

·         \$2.00; 100

·         \$3.00; 140

·         \$3.50; 175

·         \$4.00; 160

·         Demand and Supply Shifters
