    Price ; Quantity Demanded
    $200 ; 1000
    $150 ; 1400
    $100 ; 1800

    If price falls from $200 to $150, what is the elasticity of demand over this range?
    A. -0.625
    B. -1.0
    C. -1.17
    D. -2.5
    E. -3.0

    As output increases from 1,000 to 1,400 what is marginal revenue?
    A. $25
    B. $50
    C. -$400
    D. -$25
    E. -$75

    If price falls from $200 to $150,
    A. Arrows representing the price and quantity effects both point down.
    B. An arrow representing the price effect points down and is longer than an arrow for the quantity effect.
    C. An arrow representing the price effect points down and is shorter than an arrow for the quantity effect.
    D. Arrows representing the price and quantity effects both point up.
    E. Total revenue moves in the same direction as the arrow representing the price effect.
