a.) When number of racers increases, the supply of racing events increase are there are more participants now. The demand is not affected by this. Hence:

D= 0, S= +, P = -, QS= +, QD= +

b.) When the number of events increases, again the supply of races increases. Hence:

D= 0, S= +, P = -, QS= +, QD= +

c.) When the consumers prefer swimming to running, the demand falls but the supply remains unchanged. Hence:

D= -, S= 0, P = -, QS= -, QD= -

d.) When price of a substitute event decreases, consumer will shift to the cheaper good. Therefore, Demand falls but supply remains unchanged. Hence:

D= -, S= 0, P = -, QS= -, QD= -
