1.

 

Suppose that two players are playing the following game. Player A can choose either Top

 

or Bottom, and Player B can choose either Left or Right. The payoffs are given in the

 

following table where the number on the left is the payoff to Player A, and the number on

 

the right is the payoff to Player B. Does Player A have a dominant strategy? If so, what is it?

 

A) Top is a dominant strategy for Player A

 

B) Bottom is a dominant strategy for Player A

 

C) Both of the above

 

D) None of the above 2.

 

Does Player B have a dominant strategy? If so, what is it?

 

A) Left is a dominant strategy for Player B

 

B) Right is a dominant strategy for Player B

 

C) Both of the above

 

D) None of the above 3.

 

For the next four questions, you?ll be asked whether a strategy combination is a Nash

 

equilibrium or not. Player A plays Top and Player B plays Left

 

A) This is a Nash equilibrium

 

B) This is NOT a Nash equilibrium 4.

 

Player A plays Bottom and Player B plays Left

 

A) This is a Nash equilibrium

 

B) This is NOT a Nash equilibrium 5.

 

Player A plays Top and Player B plays Right

 

A) This is a Nash equilibrium

 

B) This is NOT a Nash equilibrium 6.

 

Player A plays Bottom and Player B plays Right

 

A) This is a Nash equilibrium

 

B) This is NOT a Nash equilibrium 7.

 

If each player plays her maximum strategy, what will be the outcome of the game?

 

A) Player A plays Top and Player B plays Left

 

B) Player A plays Bottom and Player B plays Left

 

C) Player A plays Top and Player B plays Right

 

D) Player A plays Bottom and Player B plays Right 8.

 

Now suppose the same game is played with the exception that Player A moves first and

 

Player B moves second. Using the backward induction method discussed in the online

 

class notes, what will be the outcome of the game?

 

A) Player A plays Top and Player B plays Left

 

B) Player A plays Bottom and Player B plays Left

 

C) Player A plays Top and Player B plays Right

 

D) Player A plays Bottom and Player B plays Right 9.

 

For the next five questions, consider a monopolist. Suppose the monopolist faces the

 

following demand curve: P = 140 ? 6Q. Marginal cost of production is constant and equal

 

to $20, and there are no fixed costs. What is the monopolist?s profit maximizing level of

 

output?

 

A) Q = 22

 

B) Q = 15

 

C) Q = 10

 

D) Q = 20

 

E) Q = 5

 

F) none of the above 10.

 

What price will the profit maximizing monopolist charge? A) P = $10

 

B) P = $20

 

C) P = $40

 

D) P = $80

 

E) P = $140

 

F) none of the above 11.

 

How much profit will the monopolist make if she maximizes her profit?

 

A) Profit = $900

 

B) Profit = $600

 

C) Profit = $800

 

D) Profit = $200

 

E) Profit = $400

 

F) none of the above 12.

 

What is the value of consumer surplus?

C) CS = $600

 

D) CS = $300

 

E) CS = $200

 

F) none of the above 13.

 

What is the value of the deadweight loss created by this monopoly?

 

A) DWL = $200

 

B) DWL = $400

 

C) DWL = $600

 

D) DWL = $800

 

E) DWL = $1000 F) none of the above 14.

 

These next five problems consider tax incidence. Suppose the market supply and demand

 

for guitars in Happy Valley are given by:

 

Demand: P = 1000 ? 0.25Q

 

Supply: P = 200 + Q

 

What is the equilibrium price and quantity of the product?

 

A) P* = 840, Q* = 640

 

B) P* = 733.25, Q* = 1067

A) DWL = $80

 

B) DWL = $8

 

C) DWL = $10

 

D) DWL = $64

 

E) none of the above 19. For the next nine questions, refer to the table above. Nebraska and Virginia each have

 

100 acres of farmland. The table gives the hypothetical figures for yield per acre in the

 

two states. Who has the absolute advantage in the production of wheat?

 

A) Nebraska

 

B) Virginia

 

C) Both of the above

 

D) None of the above 20.
