Question 1.

The real-income and the substitution effects reinforce each other by

• increasing the consumption of good B when the price of A falls.

• decreasing the consumption of good A when the price of good A increases.

• increasing the consumption of both goods A and B when income increases.

• decreasing the consumption of good A when the price of good B falls.

Question 2.

The real-income effect is typically small because

• income has no relation to consumption.

• price changes tend to balance out over time.

• real-incomes are always rising.

• the change in price of one particular item has little effect on total purchasing power.
