Question two is wrong in my eyes, "the amount of product demanded" is how much of it people want, so the more of it people want the higher the price

Yeah, I chose that answer too. Supply/demand.

And, using the definition of Inversely; Does that mean the more it is wanted, the less it costs? Color me confused on that one.

World English Dictionary
inverse (ɪnˈvɜːs, ˈɪnvɜːs) adj 1. opposite or contrary in effect, sequence, direction, etc 2. maths a. (of a relationship) containing two variables such that an increase in one results in a decrease in the other: the volume of a gas is in inverse ratio to its pressure b. (of an element) operating on a specified member of a set to produce the identity of the set: the additive inverse element of x is --x, the multiplicative inverse element of x is 1/x 3. ( usually prenominal ) upside-down; inverted: in an inverse position n 4. maths a. another name for reciprocal b. an inverse element 5. logic a categorial proposition derived from another by changing both the proposition and its subject from affirmative to negative, or vice versa, as all immortals are angels from no mortals are angels [C17: from Latin inversus, from invertere to invert ]

Yes that's what it means but then they say the more is produced the less you can charge to shift it.


But they didn't ask how much was produced, they asked how much was demanded.

17/20

i guessed on some, like the Title IX question, but i figured it was sex because race discrimination would have been disallowed earlier than 1972 and sexual orientation later and i dont think age discrimination in education has been outlawed.....

very diverse range of questions.

I got distracted by the Pizza Hut discount ad to the right and clicked that link instead of taking the test.
