QUESTION: 1

### When output decreases by 20% due to increase in inputs by 20%, this stage called the law of _______

Solution:

By increasing inputs, output cannot decrease, so it is hypothetical statement and hence no law is present for this situation

QUESTION: 2

### Consider the following table: What is the total output, when 2 labour are employed?

Solution:

Marginal product is the result of total output of 2nd - total output of 1st. So let the total output of 2nd be x , then x-100=80, value of x is 180

QUESTION: 3

### Law of diminishing returns is applicable in _________

Solution:
QUESTION: 4

If a firm’s output is zero, then

Solution:

If the firm is operating at a level of output where the market price is at a level higher than the zero-profit point, then price will be greater than average cost and the firm is earning profits. If the price is exactly at the zero-profit point, then the firm is making zero profits.

QUESTION: 5

Production activity in the short run is analysed by

Solution:

The law of variable proportions which states marginal physical product of a variable factor eventually diminishes, even if it increases in the beginning.

QUESTION: 6

Solution:
QUESTION: 7

QUESTION: 12

Isoquants are equal to :

Solution:

An isoquant is a firm’s counterpart of the consumer’s indifference curve. An isoquant is a curve that shows all the combinations of inputs that yield the same level of output. ‘Iso’ means equal and ‘quant’ means quantity. Therefore, an isoquant represents a constant quantity of output. The isoquant curve is also known as an “Equal Product Curve” or “Production Indifference Curve” or Iso-Product Curve.”

QUESTION: 13

Given production is 1,00,000 units, fixed costs is Rs 2,00,000 Selling price is Rs 10 per unit and variable cost is Rs 6 per unit. Determine profit using technique of marginal costing.

Solution:
QUESTION: 14

Law of diminishing returns is applicable in :

Solution:
QUESTION: 15

What is Production in Economics:-

Solution:
QUESTION: 16

An Isoquant is ________ to an iso cost line at equilibrium point:

Solution:

Least Cost Factor Combination or Producer's Equilibrium or Optimal Combination of Inputs.The point of tangency between the isocost and an isoquant is an important but not a necessary condition for producer's equilibrium. The essential condition is that the slope of the isocost line must equal the slope of the isoquant .

QUESTION: 17

Innovation theory of entrepreneurship is propounded by

Solution:

Pronounced as one of the greatest economists of the 20th century, Joseph Alois Schumpeter breathed life into the concepts of innovation and entrepreneurship. According to his theory, innovation can be leveraged in: Launch of a new product or an upgraded version of an existing product.

External economies can be achieved through:

Solution:

External economies of scale occur outside of a firm but within an industry.

For example investment in a better transport network servicing an industry will resulting in a decrease in costs for a company working within that industry

Industry refers to a number of markets grouped together. So when an industry expands, there are a lot of sectors that are benefitted. All the firms in the economy get external economies i.e., they get the benefit of large scale business and they tend to grow further.

QUESTION: 28

Diminishing marginal returns implies :

Solution:

Diminishing returns to labour occurs when marginal product of labour starts to fall. This means that total output will be increasing at a decreasing rate. The law of diminishing returns implies that marginal cost will rise as output increases. Eventually, rising marginal cost will lead to a rise in average total cost.
