97) There is asymmetric information in the used car market because sellers cannot distinguish between lemons (low-quality) and plums (high-quality) but buyers can.

98) If a typical consumer is willing to pay $3,000 for a plum and $1,000 for a lemon, and there is a 50% chance of getting a lemon, the typical consumer is willing to pay $2,000 for a used car.

99) If eight lemons (low quality) and two plums (high quality) are supplied and buyers assume that there is a 40% chance of getting a lemon, there is an equilibrium.

100) When buyers assume that there is a 70% chance of getting a lemon, and seven lemons (low quality) and three plums (high quality) are supplied, there is an equilibrium.

101) In the used car market, the adverse selection problem refers to the fact that a buyer must choose a used car from an undesirable selection of cars.

102) One result of adverse selection in the used car market is that few plums (high-quality) are sold.

103) In a market for used cars, if the minimum supply price for plums is lower than consumers' willingness to pay for a lemon, only plums will be supplied at the consumers' willingness to pay for a lemon.

104) If the minimum price of plums (high-quality) decreases, the market will become thinner.

105) There are profit opportunities in a thin market because the gap between what a buyer is willing to pay for a true plum and the amount a plum owner is willing to accept is large.
