##### Reference no: EM131202036

TRUE/FALSE WITH EXPLAINATION

2) All else equal, a consumer would prefer to have her income doubled rather than have a 50% reduction in the price she pays for every good.

3) In the area where you live, the price of a concert ticket is three times the price of a movie ticket. Your cousin lives in another country, in which the price of a concert ticket is two times the price of a movie ticket. If you and your cousin are both utility-maximizing consumers of concerts and movies, your MRS of concerts for movies will be lower than your cousin’s MRS of concerts for movies.

4) When food costs \$10 per unit and clothing costs \$20 per unit, an individual chose to consume 7 units of food and 4 units of clothing per month. When the price of clothing falls to \$15 per unit, that individual now chooses to consume 6 units of food and 6 units of clothing per month. Because their consumption of one good has increased and their consumption of the other good has decreased, this individual’s utility could be either higher or lower than it was before the price decreased. [Hint: If you’re having trouble with this question, a graph might be helpful.]
