nah cause if other countries are importing more from the uk, the pound appreciates and countries buy more pound so they import more from the uk , so i just said demand increases, i mean i might be wrong tho

NO! If imports to the UK are increasing, British people are increasing their supply of Pounds in foreign markets, so supply shifts to the right. Demand would be foreign consumers needing pounds to buy our goods, increasing exports, not imports.

wait holdup. on the y axis, the price axis, did it not say "euros in terms of pounds" because the x axis, the quantity was "quantity of pounds". because if that was the case (pls if i'm wrong correct me) then, according to like every GCSE supply and demand diagram, it just like doesn't work as a graph. you cant have price of one thing and then quantity of something else referencing the same graph?? honestly tho i might've just been silly and not have read the while thing... if it was like "euro cost of pounds" then yeah supply increases but i remember it being "euros in terms of pounds" i'm really confused sorry 😭

no but the question said that other countries are importing more from uk meaning uk exports are increasing no imports

no because when it says quantity of pounds it means quantity of pounds demanded not acc supply, so if quantity of pounds demanded moves right it means more quantity of pounds are being demanded, so demand increases.
i mean i dont rememeber the question that well so i could be wrong

wait no like if the answer was solely about the quantity of pounds then it would be the supply going up as more pounds are being sold so they can get euros to buy from the eu but the thing was i swear the side of the graph was about euros which would mess up the graph anyways bc the demand for euros goes up so what are you supposed to put on a graph with a different answer for each side yk
