Efficient in what regard? This is a very vague question.

It is an essay question and I know it's very vague.

Free market's may be efficient because they work with the forces of Supply and Demand to suit an equilibrium to judge price and quantity. Dynamic efficiencies from firms who operate with monopolistic powers?.. I don't know, without further detail to the question it's very hard to answer.

The question will be referring to the efficient market hypothesis. Suggest you start by searching there.
