quantity demanded decreases from Q. to Qo. This change

A) the price and output effects → B) the income and substitution effects
C) the fact that marginal willingness
to pay falls D) the law of diminishing marginal utility
Which of the following
statements is true?
A) Quantities Qo and
Q, are the utility maximizing quantities
of hoagies at two Qo Q Quantity
different prices of
hoagies. B) Quantities Oo and Q, may not necessarily
be the utility-maximizing quantities of hoagies at two different prices because we have no information on the consumers budget or the price of other goods. C) Quantities Qo could be a utility-maximizing choice if the price is $5.75, but quantity
Qu may not be because we have no information on the marginal utility per dollar when price changes.
