    I would say 1 is E because the price will fall but it won't change the price of the factors in
    No 2 I would be inclined to say d would put up demand
    No 3 I wouldsayE
    No4 I would say c or even A
    5 is b they would not be able to pay that

    OK, so i need help on these 5 multiple choice questions in Economics based on supply and demand.

    1. Assume there is a fall in demand for a good. Ceteris paribus (all other things equal), this will result in:

    A. A rise in the price of the good and a fall in the price of factors used to make it
    B. A rise in the price of the good and a rise in the price of factors used to make it
    C. A fall in the price of the good and a fall in the price of factors used to make it
    D. A fall in the price of the good and a rise in the price of factors used to make it
    E. None of the above

    2. In the commercial property market which of the following is most likely to shift the demand curve for commercial property to the right?

    A. New stricter planning regulations on construction companies

    B. An increase in airport taxes
    C. Excess demand for air travel
    D. A shift in the demand curve for air travel to the right
    E. A rise in the equilibrium price of air travel

    4. In the market for coffee which of the following would cause a rightward shift in the demand for coffee

    A. An advertising campaign showing the health benefits of coffee
    B. A fall in the price of tea
    C.The introduction of new more efficient machinery
    D. Expectations of a fall in the future price of coffee
    E. A new tax on coffee producers

    5.If the government introduces a new higher minimum wage for hotel workers which is above the equilibrium wage in the industry, this is likely to lead to

    A. A shift in the demand for hotel workers to the right
    B. Excess supply of labour to the hotel sector

    If demand for X falls whilst supply stays the same, then both price and quantity falls.

    Same logic applies for factors.
