# 1. Economists use ____________ as a measure of the relative level of satisfaction when someone consumes a good or service.   consumer happiness   utility   a happiness index   a satisfaction index 2. Sue likes brownies. However, Sue notices that the more brownies she eats the less satisfaction she receives from each extra brownie. We can say that Sue is experiencing ___________________ from each extra brownie.   sugar sickness   total utility   diminishing marginal utility   increasing marginal utility 3. When total utility is maximized, the marginal utility will be   positive.   zero.   negative.   none of these. 4. Consider Dirk and Lee. They are both eating pizza. Which of the following statements is true regarding their satisfaction and utility?   Dirk and Lee both receive 10 utils from eating pizza.   Dirk and Lee both receive the same level of satisfaction from eating pizza.   Dirk gets more twice as much satisfaction as Lee from eating pizza.   It is difficult to determine because the utility is subjective. 5. For many products, the total utility curve is   strictly increasing because of increasing marginal utility.   strictly decreasing because of diminishing marginal utility.   increasing initially because of increasing marginal utility, but eventually decreases.   increasing initially at a decreasing rate because of diminishing marginal utility but eventually decreases. 6. When consumers get the biggest bang for the buck, we say they   used the loudest gun in hunting season.   reached a consumer optimum.   minimized consumer satisfaction.   maximized marginal utility. 7. By choosing to consume at the consumer optimum, consumers will   maximize their total utility.   minimize their total utility.   maximize the amount they spend on each good.   minimize the amount they spend on each good. 8. A consumer is in equilibrium when consuming two goods when which of the following holds?   MUa/ Pa = MUb/ Pb   MUa/ Ph =MUb/ Pa   Pa/ MUa = Pb/ MUb   MUa x Pa = MUbxPb 9. If the marginal utility of good 1 is 15 and its price is \$3, and the marginal utility of good 2 is 12, and its price is \$4, then the consumer   has achieved a consumer optimum.   should increase his or her consumption of good 1.   should increase his or her consumption of good 2.   should decrease his or her consumption of good 1. 10.Suppose the price of an iPod decrease and the price of HD TVs remains the same; what noticeable effect(s) occur(s)?   the substitution effect only   the real-income effect only   the substitution effect and real-income effect, if there is a noticeable change in purchasing power   the substitution effect and real-income effect, if there isnât a noticeable change in purchasing power 11. The ______________ paradox was described by Adam Smith in 1776.   diamond-carbon   diamond-water   diamond-life   water-utility 12. What is the key to solving the diamond-water paradox?   more water and fewer diamonds   marginal utility   total utility   consumer demand 13. When solving the diamond-water paradox we notice that the marginal utility of   diamonds are equal to the marginal utility of water.   diamonds are greater than the marginal utility of water.   diamonds are less than the marginal utility of water.   water is equal to its price, and therefore lower than the marginal utility of diamonds. 14. The consumer surplus for water is   greater than that for diamonds because water is nonessential.   greater than that for diamonds because water is essential.   less than that for diamonds because water is nonessential.   less than that for diamonds because water is essential. 15. Suppose a consumer consumes only diamonds and water, and the price of diamonds increases. All else being equal, a consumerâs marginal utility for diamonds   decreases and the marginal utility for water stays the same.   increases and the marginal utility for water decreases.   decreases and the marginal utility for water increases.   increases and the marginal utility for water stays the same.
