Question No: 3 ( Marks: 1 )
If the quantity demanded of a product is greater than the
quantity supplied of a product, then:
   ► There is a shortage of the product.                                  Price= 8%    = 0.666 , e<1 inelastic
   ► There is a surplus of the product.
   ► The product is a normal good.                                        12%
   ► The product is an inferior good.                                     Question No: 7 ( Marks: 1 )
                                                                          Suppose price rises from $15 to $17 and quantity demanded

The supply curve is upward-sloping because:                                   ► Demand is unitary elastic.
     ► As the price increases, consumers demand less.                         ► Demand is elastic.
