Question

Explain the inverse relationship between price and quantity demanded of a commodity. 

Solution

The inverse relationship between price and quantity demanded of the commodity is explained by the Law of Demand. This law states that other things remaining constant, the demand of a good move opposite to the movement in the price of the good. This law can be explained with the help of the following demand schedule. 

                Price of X

                    (Rs)

   Quantity Demanded of X

             (Units)

7

50

8

45

9

42

10

38

11

35 

In the schedule, we can analyse that as price of the commodity X increases from Rs 7 to Rs 8, the quantity demanded of X falls from 50 units to 45 units. This confirms the negative relationship between the quantity demanded and the price of the commodity. 

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
