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?
A) 0.80

C) 0.60.
D) $120 billion.
96) The MPC and MPS measure changes in consumption expenditure and saving that result from changes in
A) expected inflation.
B) disposable income.
C) expected future income.
D) government expenditures on goods and services.
97) Which of the following is true?
A) MPS = MPC
B) MPS + MPC = 1
C) MPS + MPC = 0
D) MPS - MPC = 1
98) The MPC and MPS
A) sum to 1.
B) can sum to anything greater than 0.
C) sum to 100.
D) each are usually less than .5.
99) If the marginal propensity to save is 0.6, then the marginal propensity to consume is
A) 0.6.

C) 1.0.
D) not determinable.
100) For a household, the marginal propensity to save plus the marginal propensity to consume
A) equals 1.
B) equals 0.
C) equals a number that is larger the larger the household's disposable income.
D) equals a number that is smaller the larger the household's disposable income.
101) 1 - MPC equals
A) autonomous consumption.
B) the marginal propensity to save.
C) induced consumption.
D) the net national product.
102) If the MPC equals 0.75, then
A) for every $100 increase in consumption expenditure, disposable income increases by $75.
B) consumption expenditure is always more than disposable income.
C) for every $100 increase in disposable income, saving increases by $75.
