Solution:
QUESTION: 15

Solution:
QUESTION: 16

In case of luxury goods, the income elasticity of demand will be_______

Solution:
QUESTION: 17

Increase in Price from Rs. 4 to Rs. 6 then decrease in demand from 15 units to 10 units. What is the price elasticity. (Point elasticity)

Solution:

∆P = P1 - P = 6 - 4 = 2

∆Q = Q1 - Q = 10 - 15 = -5

Price Elasticity= P/Q × ∆Q/∆P =

(-) 4/15×(-)5/2

=0.66

QUESTION: 18

In case of a straight line demand curve meeting the two axes, the price elasticity of demand at the mid-point of the line would be:

Solution:
QUESTION: 19

Price of Tiffin Box is Rs. 100 per unit and the quantity demanded in market is 1,25,000 units. Company increased the price to Rs. 125. Due to this increase in price, quantity demanded decreases to 1, 00,000 units. What will be the price elasticity of demand?

Solution:

Explanation : Q1 = 100                 P1 = 125000

Q2 = 125                 P2 = 100000

(Q2-Q1)/Q = P(P2-P1)

=> (25000/125000) * (100/25)

= 4/5

= 0.8

QUESTION: 20

In case of an inferior good, the income elasticity of demand is:

Solution:
QUESTION: 21

Cross elasticity of complementary goods is:

Solution:
QUESTION: 22

Which of the following elasticity of demand measures a movement along the demand curve rather than a shift in the curve?

Solution:
QUESTION: 23

Generally, when income of consumer increases, he goes in for superior goods, leading to a fall in demand for inferior goods. It means, income elasticity of demand is ________.

Solution:

In case of inferior goods, there will be negative income elasticity (Ey<0).

QUESTION: 24

For a commodity with a unitary elastic demand curve if the price of the commodity raises, then the consumer’s total expenditure on this commodity would:

Solution:
QUESTION: 25

Suppose the price of movies seen at a theatre rises form Rs. 120 per person to Rs.200 per person. The theatre manager observed that the rise in prices has lead to a fall in attendance at a given movie from 300 persons to 200 persons. What is the price elasticity of demand for the movie? (arc elasticity)

Solution:

Arc elasticity may be expressed as: [(Q1 - Q)/(Q1 + Q)] x [(P1 + P)/(P1 - P)]

Therefore,

[(300 - 200)/(300 + 200)] x [(200 + 120)/(200 - 120)]

= (100/500) x (320/80)

So, Arc elasticity = 4/5 = 0.8

(differences were large hence arc elasticity is used.)
