Question 1          If  a firm’s marginal revenue from its 100th unit of output is $50 and the  marginal cost from its 100th unit of output is $45, then in the short  run this firm should:                 a.  shut down.                  b.  produce more than 99 units of output.                  c.  change its technology.                  d.  produce less than 100 units of output.                  e.  increase its plant size.        3 points                Question 2          Which  of the following is a key characteristic of the long-run competitive  equilibrium that distinguishes it from the short-run competitive  equilibrium?                 a.  Free entry to reduce short-run profits, or free exit to reduce short-run losses.                  b.  Average revenue is less than average cost.                  c.  Marginal revenue is greater than marginal cost.                  d.  Economic profits are positive, but cannot be negative.        3 points                Question 3          The marginal approach to profit maximization means that a firm should produce until:                 a.  marginal revenue equals price.                  b.  price equals average total cost.                  c.  marginal cost becomes negatively sloped.                  d.  marginal revenue equals marginal cost.                  e.  marginal revenue equals zero.        3 points                Question 4          If the demand for a product increases in an increasing cost industry, as the market adjusts in the long run:                 a.  the firm’s per-unit cost will fall.                  b.  the market price will return to its initial position.                  c.  price will rise.                  d.  the firm’s per-unit cost will increase.        3 points                Question 5          In  the perfectly competitive market, individual firms exert no effect on  the market price.

Thus they have no  choice but to take the price generated by the market process.                  b.  Individual  buyers in a competitive market have the power to influence price, and  thus can impose prices and other conditions on powerless sellers.                  c.  There are few sellers, and so they have the power to take whatever price they want.                  d.  Sellers  in a competitive market have the power to influence price by colluding  with one another and using quotas to limit overall market output and  thus raise price.        3 points                Question 10          Exhibit 8-3 Cost per unit curves As shown in Exhibit 8-3, the firm will produce in the short run if the price is at least equal to:                 a.  $1.00 per unit (point A).                  b.  $1.50 per unit (point B).                  c.  $2.00 per unit (point C).                  d.  $4.00 per unit (point D).        3 points                Question 11          Under both perfect competition and monopoly, a firm:                 a.  always earns a pure economic profit.                  b.  is a price maker.                  c.  sets marginal cost equal to marginal revenue.                  d.  will shut down in the short-run if price falls short of average total cost.                  e.  is a price taker.        4 points                Question 12          Compared to a perfectly competitive industry, a monopolist with the same marginal cost and demand curve will charge:                 a.  a higher price and produce a higher volume of output.                  b.  a higher price and produce a lower volume of output.                  c.  the same price and produce the same volume of output.                  d.  a lower price and produce a lower volume of output.                  e.  a lower price and produce a higher volume of output.        4 points                Question 13          Exhibit 9-8 Profit maximizing for a monopolist ​ As shown in Exhibit 9-8, the monopolist’s total cost is which of the following areas?                 a.  P1AEP5.                  b.  P2BDP4.                  c.  P3CDP5.                  d.  P4DEP5.                  e.  None of these.        4 points                Question 14          A  monopoly sets a market price that is higher than the marginal cost of  production.
