USE a #2 PENCIL: Write your name, Student ID#, Section # and the exam version # (above) on the NCS bubble/answer sheet; and blacken the corresponding circles. 3. WAIT until you are instructed to do so before you open your exam. 4. There are 28 problems on 6 pages in this exam. 5. Blacken ONE answer for each question on your NCS answer sheet. 6. Read the question carefully before answering. HINT: draw graphs and write out formulas to improve your focus on the correct answer. 7. DO NOT LOOK at anyone else, much less their test. Even if it just seems like you are looking at someone else's answers (not doing your own work), you can be graded an "F" on this exam. 8. You have 50 minutes. 9. When you are finished, turn in BOTH this exam and your NCS answer sheet.

2 1. The optimal quantity of an activity is the quantity at which: A) marginal benefit exceeds marginal cost by the greatest amount. B) total benefit exceeds total cost by the greatest amount.

The price elasticity of demand for gas is: A) 0.2 B) 5 C) 0.5 D) 2 3. If coffee and tea are substitutes in consumption, then an increase in the price of coffee will increase the demand for tea. 4. Although most economists agree that price floors and ceilings lead to inefficiency, governments continue to impose such price controls. A possible reason for this is: A) people fear that prices will change dramatically if the price controls were removed. B) it is politically expedient to enact regulations that benefit influential voting groups. C) some people do benefit from such price controls. D) all of the above. 5.

B) employers of salaried full-time workers bear almost all the burden of the tax. C) it's impossible to determine who bears the burden of a tax. D) that's how it works: employers and employees each bear half the burden of the tax. 6. A major determinant of the price elasticity of demand is the availability of substitutes. 7. Suppose Congress imposes a price ceiling of \$5 per ATM transaction. If the average market-clearing price for an ATM transaction is \$2, the price ceiling will not be binding in this instance. 8. Which of the following would be a positive economic statement? A) Government should be subject to the same rules as all other institutions. B) Women should be paid as much as men for the same work.

The equilibrium price is and the equilibrium quantity is. A) \$3; 30 B) \$6; 40. C) \$5; 50 D) \$9; If the estimated price elasticity of demand for foreign travel is 4.0, then: A) demand for foreign travel is very inelastic. B) a 10% increase in the price of foreign travel will increase quantity demanded by 40% C) a 20% decrease in the price of foreign travel will lead to an 80% increase in the quantity demanded. D) all of the above are correct. 12. After you graduate, you want to open a business selling computers. There are many other businesses in your area that sell similar computers. Because of that, you can safely assume that the price elasticity of demand for your businesses computers will be: A) greater than one. B) one. C) less than one. D) zero. 13.

It takes five hours to travel to and attend the game, and costs you \$15 for parking. What is the cost of attending the game? A) \$55 B) zero C) \$40 D) \$15 3

4 16. You manage a convenience mart. In your area, the income elasticity of demand for peanut butter, an inferior good, is 0.5.

B) shortage of 0.2 million apartments. C) surplus of 0.6 million apartments. D) surplus of 0.2 million apartments. 23. The cost of going to college is: A) tuition, the cost of housing, the cost of books, and forgone income. B) tuition and the cost of housing. C) forgone income only.
