Price elasticity of demand of goods X is -2 and goods Y is -3. Which of the two goods is more price elastic and why?
A consumer buys 18 units of a good at a price of Rs 9 per unit. The price elasticity of demand for the good is (–) 1. How many units the consumer will buy at a price of Rs 10 per unit? Calculate.
The price elasticity of demand for a good is - 0.4. If its price increases by 5 percent, by what percentage will its demand fall? Calculate.
What will be the effect of 10 percent rise in price of a good on its demand if price elasticity of demand is (a) Zero, (b)-1, (c)-2.
Price elasticity of demand for the two goods X and Y are zero and (–) 1 respectively. Which of the two is more elastic and why?
As we move along a downward sloping straight line demand curve from left to right, price
an elasticity of demand : (choose the correct alternative)
(a) remains unchanged
(b) goes on falling
(c) goes on rising
(d) falls initially then rises
When the price of a commodity X falls by 10 percent. Its demand rises from 150 units to 180
units. Calculate is price elasticity of demand. How much should be the percentage fall in its
price so that its demand rises from 150 to 210 units?
