Figure 14.5 represents the market for used cars. Suppose buyers are willing to pay $5,000 for a plum (high-quality) used car and $3,000 for a lemon (low-quality) used car. Initially buyers believe that 80% of used cameras in the market are lemons (low quality). Compared to the outcome with these initial expectations, how many fewer cars are sold in equilibrium?

▸ 50

▸ 80

▸ 110

▸ The number of cars sold in equilibrium is the same as the outcome with neutral expectations.
