Step 1

a. Total direct material cost- It will be Cost graph four as per the question, because with each additional unit produced on x axis , the cost would increase on Y axis simaltaneously.

Step 2

b. Electricity cost \$ 1000 per month per \$ 0.10 per kilowatt - hour- It will be cost graph two-

This is a example of semi variable cost , where some portion of cost is fixed irrespective of the production and then the cost increases with every additional hour used for production.

Step 3

c. Per unit cost of straight line depreaciation on equipment- it will be cost graph three as per the question

The formula for per unit cost of straight line depreciation is = Total fixed cost - salvage value/ total est...
