Ans) 1) Law of demand states that price and quantity demanded have inverse relationship i.e people demand less goods at higher prices.

Option e (both a and c)

2) Option e (greater, higher and smaller, lower)

3) Increase or decrease in quantity demanded is caused only due to change in price of good itself and it causes movement along the curve.

When price increases, quantity demanded decreases and there an upward movement along the curve.

When price decreases, quantity demanded increases and there is downward movement along the curve.

Option c (price has declined)

4) Both price and quantity will increase.

Option b (rise , rise).
