ConceptConsumption Function and Propensity to Save

#### Question

If the marginal propensity to consume is greater than marginal propensity to save, the value of the multiplier will be (Choose the correct alternative)

(a) greater than 2

(b) less than 2

(c) equal to 2

(d) equal to 5

#### Solution

greater than 2

When MPC >MPS, then the value of multiplier will be greater than 2 because the value of the multiplier is directly related to the value of marginal propensity to consume. They both are directly related. In other words when MPC is more, k the multiplier is more and vice versa.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
