(b) Autonomous consumption
(c) Investment multiplier
Ans: (2) Rs 2000 cr (3) 10 , 0.9 (4) 300 cr , 200 , 4
(Q5) Explain with the help of numerical example how an increase in investment in an economy affects its level of income (C.B.S.E 2005)
Ans: Investment multiplier is a measure of the effect of change in the initial investment on c hange in final income.
Numerical example :: Suppose I = Rs 100 cr. MPC = 0.8 . Initial investment of Rs 100 cr. raises the income by ‘rs100 cr. In the first round, this additional income causes an increase in consumption expenditure which in turn, generates more income (as one man’s expenditure is another man’s income). This process continues till the total income is equal to multiplier times the initial investment.
K = 1 / 1MPC K = 1 / 1 0.8 K = 5 . Hence Change in income = 5 x 100 = Rs 500
(Explanation without schedule is also acceptable) (or any other relevant example) (TABLE)

(a) Marginal propensity to consume
(b) Change in Savings
(c) Change in consumption expenditure
(d) Value of multiplier (4) (s)
(Q16) There is increase in investment of 100 crore in an economy . MPC = 1 . What can you say about increase in income ? Calculate
(Q17) In an economy, change in investment is Rs. 100 crores and Marginal Propensity to Consume is 0.9. is the value of multiplier 10 and the change in income Rs. 1,200? True or False. Justify your answer.
(Q18) If MPC is 0.9, what will be the value of multiplier ? In order to increase National Income by Rs. 5,000 crores, an increase in investment should be of Rs. 500 crores. True or False? Justify your answer.
(Q19) “Economists are generally concerned about the rising Marginal Propensity to Save (MPS) in an economy”. Explain why ? (3M)
Ans: Since the sum of MPC and MPS is unity any increase in Marginal Propensity to Save (MPS) would directly lead to decrease in Marginal Propensity to Consume (MPC). This means that may lead to lesser proportion of the additional income going to consumption which is a vital factor of Aggregate Demand/Expenditure. This may further lead to fall in equilibrium level of income in the economy. (3m)

(Q1) If the marginal propensity to consume is greater than marginal propensity to save, the value of the multiplier will be (Choose the correct alternative)(1M)
(a) greater than 2
(b) less than 2
(c) equal to 2
(d) equal to 5
Ans: (a) Greater than 2.
(Q2) Calculate Multiplier when MPC is 4/5 and 1/2 . From the calculations establish the relation between size of Multiplier and size of MPC ? (3M)
Ans: K = 5 & 2 , Observing the same we may conclude that there exist positive or direct relation between MPC and Investment Multiplier . Investment Multiplier coefficient measures the change in final income with respect to given change in the initial investment in the economy. It carries direct relation with rate of growth in an economy, i.e. higher the MPC more chance of growth exists in an economy. But, it is a two sided sword hence if investment falls in an economy the income may also fall.
