3) Availability of agricultural land (fixed cost) is limited in the world, but demand of food grains is continuously increasing. Is it possible to increase the supply of food grains by continuously increasing variable factors like seeds, fertilizer, etc?

ANS:- Availability of agricultural land is limited in the world, production of food grains may be increased by continuous increase in variable factors only up to a optimum combination with fixed factors.

After that law of negative returns is applied.

Value: Critical thinking

4) Imagine yourself as a producer (in a perfectly competitive market structure), focusing on profit maximization. Will you prefer striking an equilibrium in a state of increasing returns?

ANS:- Striking an equilibrium in a state of increasing returns to a factor (when MP is rising or MC is falling) is absolutely ruled out. Because it is a situation when every addition unit of output adds more and more to total profits.

Reason: while MR is constant (under perfect competition) MC is falling (owing to increasing returns), so that the difference between MR and MC tends to rise. It is only when the differential (MR – MC) starts shrinking, and is finally eliminated, that the profits are maximized. This happens only in a state of diminishing returns when MP is falling or MC is rising.


1) In a situation of fall in the sale of ice cream, the ice cream producer would like to reduce the production. What factors of production fixed or variable will be reduced by him? Explain with reasons.

ANS:- When sale of ice cream decreases, profit of producer will fall by which he will try to control his cost of production but in short run he cannot change the cost of fixed factors therefore he will reduce the cost of variable factors.

Value: Problem solving


1) How can tax policy of government be effective in controlling the supply of Liquor like harmful product?
