In a two good world there is an individual with income m = 3 and utility function is given by u = = x0.5y0.5 . The price of good x is Re. 1 per unit and the price of good y is also Re. 1 per unit.

If the individual can consume any non negative amount of good x and y, then the optimum consumption bundle is

2 / 10

In a two good world there is an individual with income m = 3 and utility function is given by u = x0.5y0.5. The price of good x is Re. 1 per unit and the price of good y is also Re. 1 per unit.

If the individual can consume either zero unit of good x or at most one unit of x and any non-negative amount of good y, then the optimum consumption bundle is

3 / 10

In a two good world there is an individual with income m = 3 and utility function is given by u = x0.5y0.5. The price of good x is Re. 1 per unit and the price of good y is also Re. 1 per unit.

If both goods x and y can be consumed in integer amounts (i.e., zero unit, one unit, two units etc.) then the optimum consumption bundle is

4 / 10

Suppose a consumers preferences over commodities 1 and 2 can be represented by the utility function U(x1, x2 ) = min⁡{ x1, x2 } + max{ x1, x2 }, where  x1, x2  ≥0. The prices of the two commodities are 1 and 2 respectively and the consumers income is 150. Which of the following is true?

5 / 10

There are three commodities - the first commodity has a negative price -1 per unit, the second commodity is priced at +1 per unit and third is priced at +2 per unit. Income of the person is 100 per day. Then which one of the following is not true?

6 / 10

Satish is very conscious about the food he eats. He only eats rotis and dal; a cup of dal costs Rs. 2 while each roti costs Re. 1 and Satish decides to spend Rs. 13 per day on food. Also he decides to consume exactly 5500 calories a day; he has been told that each roti has 1000 calories while each cup of dal has 500 calories. He spends his entire money allotted on foods. Then

7 / 10

Let the following utility function represent the preference relation of an individual

U(x, y) = x0.5 + y
Let Px, Py and M denote the prices of good x, y and money income respectively. Px, Py, M > 0

Optimal consumption bundle of the consumer includes

8 / 10

Let the following utility function represent the preference relation of an individual

U(x, y) = x0.5 + y
Let Px, Py and M denote the prices of good x, y and money income respectively. Px, Py, M > 0

Given prices, as M increases optimal consumption of x

9 / 10

Let the following utility function represent the preference relation of an individual

U(x, y) = x0.5 + y
Let Px, Py and M denote the prices of good x, y and money income respectively. Px, Py, M > 0

Let Py = 2, Px = 1/4m, optimal consumption bundle includes

10 / 10

Let the following utility function represent the preference relation of an individual

U(x, y) = x0.5 + y
Let Px, Py and M denote the prices of good x, y and money income respectively. Px, Py, M > 0

If Px = Py in the optimal consumption bundle

Course Description

Intermediate Microeconomics I (HC32)
Core Course (CC) Credit: 6

Course Objective

The course is designed to provide a sound training in microeconomic theory to formally analyze the behaviour of individual agents. Since students are already familiar with the quantitative techniques in the previous semesters, mathematical tools are used to facilitate understanding of the basic concepts. This course looks at the behaviour of the consumer and the producer and also covers the behaviour of a competitive firm.

Course Learning Outcomes

The course trains the students of Economics about the basic elements of consumer theory and production theory and the functioning of perfectly competitive market. This course aims to give students a solid grasp of microeconomic analysis at the intermediate-level using mathematical techniques where appropriate.

Unit 1

Consumer theory. Preference; utility; budget constraint; choice; demand; Slutsky equation; buying and selling; choice under risk and intertemporal choice; revealed preference

Unit 2

Production, costs and perfect competition Technology; isoquants; production with one and more variable inputs; returns to scale; short run and long run costs; cost curves in the short run and long run; review of perfect competition
