2 12. The following graphs depict a perfectly competitive firm and its market. Assume that all firms in this industry have identical cost functions. Assume that the market is currently as shown in the graph on the left (i.e., price of \$8). What is true of the number of firms? A. There are currently 30 firms in the industry, and that number will remain stable until there is a change in demand or in technology. B. There are currently ten firms in this industry, and that number will remain stable until there is a change in demand or in technology. C. It is impossible to tell how many firms currently exist in this industry, but you can tell that the number of firms is likely to increase in the near future. D. There are currently ten firms in this industry, and that number is likely to increase in the near future. 13. Which ordering best describes how a perfectly competitive industry would respond to a sudden increase in popularity of the product? The market demand function will shift to the right, causing the market: A. price to increase, and a new stable equilibrium to be established at a higher price and higher quantity. B. price to increase, and all firms in the industry will earn higher profits for the foreseeable future. C. price to increase. Increased profits will encourage new firms to enter, shifting the market supply function to the right. Long-run market equilibrium will be at a higher quantity than before the surge in popularity. D. price and quantity supplied to increase. Increased profits will encourage new firms to enter shifting the market supply function upward. Long-run market equilibrium will be at a lower quantity and higher price than before the surge in popularity. 14. Refer to the figure on the right. Suppose S 2 is the industry supply curve and all firms are producing at the profit maximizing quantity. What will happen to the supply curve in the long run? A. Quantity supplied will increase but stay on the S 2 curve. B. Supply will shift to S 1 C. Supply will shift to S. D. Quantity supplied will decrease but stay on S 2 curve. 15. Economic rent is: A. the amount you pay for an apartment in a free market. B. the payment made to suppliers of an input. C. the difference between the payment made to the supplier of an input and the supplier's reservation price. D. the same as the input supplier's reservation price. 16. The main source of economies of scale is A. better management. B. constant returns to plant size. C. specialization. D. increases in the labor force not matched by increases in the plant size. 17. The marginal product of labor is A. total product divided by labor. B. the change in total product divided by the increase in labor. C. total product minus the quantity of labor. D. output that does not meet quality specifications. II. Market 18. Price-setters face: A. perfectly elastic demand. B. more than perfectly elastic demand. C. perfectly inelastic demand. D. less than perfectly elastic demand. 2

3 19. In exchange for a share in the revenues earned on campus, State U has granted CheapFizz the exclusive right to sell soft drinks in the student union and in vending machines on campus.

Refer to the information above. Prior to the deal, a 12-ounce can of CheapFizz sold for 75 cents. After the deal you would expect a 12-ounce can of CheapFizz to sell for: A. 75 cents because that is the market price. B. less than 75 cents because CheapFizz will have greater volume and so can sell for a lower price. C. more than 75 cents because demand for CheapFizz will shift to the left. D. more than 75 cents because other firms must exit the market. 20. The term "natural monopoly" refers to: A. government ownership of parks. B. industries with constant returns to scale. C. the desire of all firms to be monopolists. D. industries with economies of scale. 21. Consider an industry with two firms producing similar products.

A. perfectly elastic; downward-sloping B. vertical; downward-sloping C. perfectly elastic; perfectly inelastic D. perfectly inelastic; perfectly elastic 24. This graph illustrates the demand faced by a firm. Refer to the figure on the right. The firm will charge a price of \$8 only if: A. marginal cost is \$8. B. marginal cost is \$0.

B. is the practice of charging different prices to different customers based on the different costs of supplying the product to different customers. C. is the practice of charging different prices to different customers when the price differences cannot be attributed to variations in cost.
