# Suppose the price of A is $20 per unit, the price of B is$10 per unit, and theconsumer’s income is $1000 per month. Which of the following baskets is not on theconsumer’s budget line?a) A = 40, B = 20b) A = 5, B = 90c) A = 2.5, B = 95d) A = 20, B = 40 Question Suppose the price of A is$20 per unit, the price of B is $10 per unit, and theconsumer’s income is$1000 per month. Which of the following baskets is not on theconsumer’s budget line?

1. a)  A = 40, B = 20

2. b)  A = 5, B = 90

3. c)  A = 2.5, B = 95

4. d)  A = 20, B = 40

Step 1

Utility:

The utility is the power or ability of the goods and services that satisfy the consumers want. Alternatively, the satisfying power of commodity is called utility.

Step 2

The option d (A = 20, B = 40) is not on the consumer’s budget line. While option a, b and c is on the budget line.

To find the correct basket we need to put all the given baskets simultaneously in the budget line (I = PaA  + PbB) and verify the condition. Since all the basket satisfies the budget line except option d.

Solution for option d,

Pr...
