(iii) For whom to produce?

6. (a) False: Average product rises as long as marginal product is greater than average product. Here marginal product could be rising or falling. (1½)
(b) False: Total cost rises at a diminishing rate when marginal cost falls and total cost rises at an increasing rate when marginal cost increases. (1½)

7. 'Price ceiling' is the maximum price that sellers can legally charge for a product or a service.  Since this price is below equilibrium price, there is excess demand in the market. With shortages, sellers tend to hoard the product. It could also lead to black marketing.

OR

‘Price floor’ is the minimum price fixed by the government at which sellers can legally sell their product. Since this price is above equilibrium price, there is excess supply in the market. Since there is surplus, sellers can attempt to sell their product at a price below the floor price.

8. Freedom of entry and exit of firms under perfect competition means that there are no costs or barriers a firm faces to enter or exit the market. The implication of this is that in the long run each firm earns only normal profit. Suppose in the short run, existing firms are earning super normal profits, new firms enter the industry as they are attracted by profits. This raises the market supply and reduces the market price. As firms accept the lower market price, profits reduces. This process continues till profits reduce to normal levels in the long run. The opposite occurs if firms are earning losses as firms leave the industry. This reduces
market supply and raises market price till losses get wiped out and firms earn only normal profit in the long run.
