13.1

(A)

Fixed cost is \$9 and variable cost when Q=2 is 2*4=8 because the variable cost is the sum of marginal cost till the output produced.

Total cost= fixed cost+ variable cost =9+8 = \$17

The correct option is (c)

(B)

if the price of the good is \$9, output sold is at P=MC=9 at 5 units of output.

the correct option is (e)

(C)

Each firm produces bobble heads at P=MC=9 at 5 units of output.

the correct option is (c)

(D) The number of firms can be determined by dividing market demand by the demand of each firm at the given price and it will be 120/5 = 24

the correct option is (c)

(E) This is not a long run equilibrium because in that case, price equals the minimum level of average total cost.

the correct option is (a)
