New deposit = $10,000
Reserve requirement = 10% or 0.10
Required reserves = $10,000 * 0.10 = $1,000
Excess reserves created = $10,000 - $1,000 = $9,000
A bank can lend an amount equal to excess reserves it held.
So, bank may increase lending by $9,000.
Hence, the correct answer is the option (B).
Reserve ratio (rr) = 0.10
Money multiplier = 1/rr = 1/0.10 = 10
If the reserve ratio is 0.10, the money multiplier is 10.
The given statement is False.
Unit of account function of money implies that money can be used for determining the value of various goods and services.
So, money is a unit of account because goods and assets are priced in terms of it.
Hence, the correct answer is the option (c).
