Economics Question XA is the 10 hours leisure period YA is the $15 wage Question 2 Sara has a flatter I. C than Johnmeaning that Sara is spending less time, Hours, in leisure activities than John. John has a strong preference for leisure meaning that she does not like working; she will have steep indifference curves as shown (Fig 2.0a). John is prepared to give up his large amount of C to get more units of V. Figure 2.0a Sara has a strong preference for consumption. She has a flat indifference curve as in figure 2.0b.

At this point, the individual has uses the same hours in leisure with WNH but will maximize his income. He has a higher income than when he is on WNH. Question 4 A taxi driver I. C A professor I. C Question 5 Figure 3 The slope of the I. C shows a diminishing MRS between C and V The diminishing MRS is attributed to the assumption of the diminishing marginal utility; and the additional utility that is derived from consuming 1 more unit of V will decrease as V increases.

At point marked B on figure 3.0, an individual has 6 units of C and 4 units of V. according to the relative abundance of C versus V an individual will sacrifice one unit of V to obtain additional units of C. V is a scarce commodity and V is the abundant commodity, and maintain a same utility level at A. At point D; the individual has 2 units of C and 15 units of V.

V versus C, the individual sacrifices 5 units of V to obtain additional units of C. The combination of V and C provides a higher utility level.
