yes i dont even do ecnomics :thumbsup:

3 = C, opportunity cost is when you make a decision between 2 things, the opportunity cost is the thing you have turned down.

E.g. You go in to a shop with £1, you can either buy a drink OR a bag of crisps. If you choose the crisps then the opportunity cost of that decision is a drink.

Although it says cost it is not talking monetary cost

2 is bounded rationality if anyone's interested.

Q1- The answer is 1 or -1

If the relationship is inverse it is negative.

Opportunity Cost has always been defined for me as 'the next best alternative foregone'

Im sudying AS level.

Rest have been answered I think.:thumbsup:

I thought it was -1, but OP said 0 or 1

To let you know PED = % change in demand / % change in price.

If something is elastic, it means that it responds with a PED of more than 1.
Inelastic is less than 1.
Unit elastic is 1

EDIT: Also Note that you can ad a minus sign in front of the above.

But also note that only PED allows the above to be true for negative readings.

Negative readingd mean different things for XED, YED and PES

Unit elasticity = demand changes by the same % as price = -1
