Step 1

Hey, Thank you for the question. According to our policy we can only answer 3 subparts per question. So, we are solving the 1st three for you. If you need further help, post the question again and mention the subpart you want us to solve.

There are two players in all the strategies: Player 1 and player 2.

The payoffs are written in this format – (player 1, player 2). We see player 1’s payoff row wise and player 2’s payoffs column wise.

We will assume that player 1 chooses the strategy 1st. So, it will for sure want to maximize its payoffs (row-wise). Similarly, player 2 will also maximize its payoffs (column-wise).  

Step 2

1)

In this case we can see none of the payoffs are maximized or are equal. If we see for player 1(row-wise 1st element): strategy U – the payoffs are 0 and 4, Strategy M – 3 and 3, Strategy D – 4 and 0. None of the payoffs are maximized in terms of others.  Example- for strategy U and M – 0>3 but 4 is not >3. For U and D – 0 is not >3 but 4>0. Similarly for M and D – 3 is not > 4 but 3>0. So, it can be said none of the strategy is dominated.

Similarly, see for player 2(Column-wise 2nd element): For strategy X and Y – 4>0, 3=3 but 0 is not greater than 4. So, it can be said none of the strategy is dominated.

Therefore, rationalizable strategy for this game is the same. That is:

Step 3

2) 

Economics homework question answer, step 3, image 1

Following the same method: for player 1 : Strategy U and D- 2>1, 1>0 , 4> 3. Therefore, D is dominated by U and we can eliminate it.

Now the game left is:

From player 1’s side neither U nor M dominates. So, looking from player 2’s side (column-wise and 2nd element) – Strategy Y and Z – 2>1, 3>2 . Therefore, Z dominates Y and we can eliminate Z. From X and Y none of them dominates. So, rationalizable strategy for this game is:
