Expert Answer

Step 1

Since we only answer up to 3 sub-parts, we’ll answer the first 3.

Please resubmit the question and specify the other subparts (up to 3) you’d like answered.

Step 2

a) With reference to the graph below, if the economy is in equilibrium initially, the supply and demand intersect each other at pt. E. There is equilibrium price and quantity at this point. Now, if sudden winters turn the weather cold, the demand for hot chocolate will increase. It will shift demand curve to right. Due to this, the economy reaches at point F. There is an excess demand at this point. So, to reach the equilibrium point, the prices in the economy rises to P’. Hence, the new equilibrium is achieved at point E’ with new price P’ and new equilibrium quantity Q’.
