An industry in which the firm’s cost structures do not vary with changes in production will have a long-run supply curve that rev: 06_26_2018 Multiple Choice is perfectly elastic. is perfectly inelastic. slopes upward. slopes downward. A perfectly competitive firm does not try to sell more of its product by lowering its price below the market price because rev: 06_26_2018 Multiple Choice this would be considered unethical price chiseling. its demand curve is inelastic, so total revenue will decline. its competitors would not permit it. it can sell all it wants to at the market price. An industry in which its firms’ cost structures do not vary with changes in production is referred to as a rev: 06_26_2018 Multiple Choice fixed-price industry. price-controlled industry. constant-cost industry. price-taking industry. In perfect competition, if the market price of the product is initially higher than the minimum average total cost faced by the firms, then rev: 06_26_2018 Multiple Choice some firms will exit the industry and the industry supply will decrease. some firms will exit the industry and the industry supply will increase. other firms will enter the industry and the industry supply will decrease. other firms will enter the industry and the industry supply will increase.

Which of the following is true under conditions of perfect competition? rev: 06_26_2018 Multiple Choice There are differentiated products. The market demand curve is perfectly elastic. No single firm can influence the market price. Each individual firm has the ability to set its own price. Use the following graphs for a perfectly competitive market in the short run to answer the next question. The graphs suggest that in the long run, assuming no changes in the given information, rev: 06_26_2018 Multiple Choice buyers will leave the industry. more buyers will come to the market. some firms will exit from this industry. new firms will enter the industry. A perfectly competitive firm will be willing to produce even at a loss in the short run, as long as rev: 06_26_2018 Multiple Choice the loss is smaller than its marginal costs. price exceeds marginal costs. the loss is smaller than its total variable costs. the loss is smaller than its total fixed costs. Which of the following suppliers is most likely to be a monopolist?
