12. As a consumer would you equate price of a commodity with total utility or marginal utility? Give reason in support of your answer.

Ans A consumer would equate price of the commodity with its marginal utility and not total utility.

Reason: The consumer, while buying a unit of a commodity, compares additional benefit and additional cost related to the unit. Additional benefit is marginal utility, while additional cost is p of the commodity. He will buy a particular unit only when MU is at least equal to P. And he strikes his equilibrium when

MU =P The consumer does not compare P with TU because TU is the sum total of utility resulting from all the units of a commodity he is buying . It cannot be compared with P which is always related to one unit.

13. How does it matter to a consumer in case of MRSxy>Px/Py?

Ans MRSxy, refers to ratio between change in y commodity to a change x commodity or the amount of goody that the consumer is willing to give up for one more unit of good X according to his taste and preferences, Px/Py, on the other hand , the amount of good Y that the consumer has to give up for one more unit of good X, according to the market price of X and Y. In case MRSxy > Px/PY, it implies a situation that what the consumer is willing to give up exceeds what he is required to give up.. Will the consumer be rational in such a situation, if he stops buying more of x in place of Y? Certainly not.so, he better moves downward on IC. Increase in his purchase of x in place of Y, will reduce his MRS to align with the required rate of substitution between x and y.
