D) exceeds 1.

90) The MPS equals the ratio of

A) saving to real GDP.

B) the change in saving to the change in consumption expenditure.

C) saving to consumption expenditure.

D) None of the above answers is correct.

91) The marginal propensity to save equals the

A) change in savings resulting from a one dollar change in disposable income.

B) change in savings from a change in consumption expenditure.

C) average amount of income saved.

D) ability to save the same percentage of income each month.

92) When disposable income increases from \$7 trillion to \$7.5 trillion, consumption expenditure increase from \$6.5 trillion to \$6.9 trillion. The MPS is equal to

A) 0.75.

B) 0.76.

C) 0.8.

D) 0.2.

93) When disposable income equals \$800 billion, planned consumption expenditure equals \$600 billion, and when disposable income equals \$1,000 billion, planned consumption expenditure equals \$760 billion. What is the marginal propensity to save?

98) The MPC and MPS

A) sum to 1.

B) can sum to anything greater than 0.

C) sum to 100.

A) autonomous consumption.

B) the marginal propensity to save.

C) induced consumption.
