#### Question

Indicate the degree of elasticity of a supply curve parallel to the X-axis.

#### Solution

A horizontal straight line supply curve which is parallel to the x-axis shows an infinite supply corresponding to a particular price. When Es = ∞, even a minute change in price will cause an infinite change in quantity. Hence, the elasticity of the supply curve is parallel to the x-axis.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
