## FAQs on Class 11 Economics Previous Year Paper - 11 - Economics Class 11 - Commerce

 1. What are the factors affecting demand in economics?
Ans. Factors affecting demand in economics include the price of the good or service, consumer income, consumer preferences, price of related goods, and future expectations.
 2. How does the law of demand impact the market?
Ans. The law of demand states that as the price of a good or service decreases, the quantity demanded increases, and vice versa. This impacts the market by influencing the price and quantity of goods exchanged.
 3. What is the difference between a change in quantity demanded and a change in demand?
Ans. A change in quantity demanded is a movement along the demand curve due to a change in price, while a change in demand is a shift in the entire demand curve due to factors other than price.
 4. How does elasticity of demand affect pricing strategies?
Ans. Elasticity of demand measures how responsive quantity demanded is to a change in price. Firms use elasticity to determine pricing strategies, such as setting higher prices for inelastic goods and lower prices for elastic goods.
 5. What role does consumer surplus play in analyzing demand?
Ans. Consumer surplus represents the difference between what consumers are willing to pay for a good or service and what they actually pay. It is used to analyze the welfare gain for consumers from a particular market transaction.
