    55
  11. If we are producing at point D, which of the following would be true?

    Image Upload
    It is not possible to increase the output of wheat.
    It is not possible to increase the output of corn.

    It is not possible to decrease the output of wheat.
    It is not possible to decrease the output of corn.

    M
  13. True or False, if false, explain why: An increase in prices across a nation will lead to an increase in that
    nation's PPC.
    False. Higher prices do not lead to an increase in productive capacity. Factors that could increase the PPC include a larger labor force, improved technology, greater access to natural resources, an increase in the number of capital goods, and increased productivity of resources.
