Under what condition will MSC = MPC? When will MSB = MPB?

To determine

Explanation

When the marginal external cost (MEC) is zero, the marginal social cost (MSC) is equal to the marginal private cost (MPC). On the other hand, when the marginal external benefit (MEB) is zero, the marginal social benefit (MSB) is equal to the marginal private benefit (MPB)
