    According to the theory of comparative advantage, if you are twice as beautiful, three times as strong, and four times as rich, you...



    a. Do not have an absolute advantage in beauty

    b. Have a comparative advantage in strength

    c. Have a comparative disadvantage in beauty

    d. Have a comparative advantage in all three areas

    e. None of the above

    im unsure about the answer of this question. I was told that comparitive advantage, was to do with opportunity cost, that you have an advantage if you have to give up less of something else to get/produce one more unit. therefore i dont really understand this question?

    help would be appreciated

    It is e, none of the above.
    Firstly, the data is not sufficient enough, so it would be impossible to conclude whether 'you' have comparative advantage over someone else. Otherwise, it would just be based on assumptions.
