    When writing a question on CBA would you attempt to almost do the analysis yourself? Or would you just talk about the pros and cons of it? Or both?
    Both - you need to analyse, the examiners wouldn't just want you to put down everything you know on CBA, there will be some other aspects of the question that you need to address.

    You don't really have to use one but you could use a negative production externalities one and say it's to prevent a misallocation of resources and to ensure external benefits /external costs to society and therefore to prevent a net welfare loss to society of a decision

    What is the difference between monopolistic competition and a monopoly?
    Monopolistic competition isn't on the AQA spec.

    From the AQA spec:
    Candidates should understand the roles of interdependence and uncertainty in
    oligopoly. The kinked demand curve model should be used as an illustration of
    the interdependence between firms and not taught as if it is the only model of
    oligopoly. Similarly, candidates should be introduced to game theory as a tool for
    illustrating possible consequences of interdependence for the behaviour of firms
    in oligopolistic markets.
    Note: candidates do not need to understand the model of monopolistic
    competition.

    What is the difference between monopolistic competition and a monopoly?
    Monopolistic competition is when there are loads of firms in a market, for example hairdressers.

    A pure monopoly is when there is one firm in the industry so it has complete dominance, a working monopoly is a firm with over 25% market share.

    Hope this helps.
