18.              Suppose the government believes that the equilibrium price established on the market by

                            Economists call that minimum price a(n)

a.price ceiling

b.price floor

c.parity price

d.deficiency price

e.equilibrium price

20.              Agriculture’s share of total output in the U.S. has declined throughout the 20th century,
                            although the absolute value of farm output has increased. The number of U.S. farms grew
                            in the early part of the century, then began to steadily fall.  The number of U.S. farms
                            peaked in which of the following decades?

a.1910–1919

b.1970–1979

c.1930–1939

d.1950–1959

21.              The effect of improvements in food-producing technology can be shown graphically  by

a.rightward shifts in the supply curve of food

b.leftward shifts in the supply curve of food

c.rightward shifts in the demand curve for food

d.leftward shifts in the demand curve for food

e.both leftward shifts in the demand curve for and the supply curve of food

22.              When increases in the demand for food—shown as rightward shifts in the demand curve—
                            are relatively small when compared to the increases in food supply—shown as rightward
                            shifts in the supply curve—equilibrium price

a.rises and equilibrium quantity falls

b.falls and equilibrium quantity falls

c.rises and equilibrium quantity rises

d.falls and equilibrium quantity rises

e.and equilibrium quantity stay the same
