Question 4 of 7

Davison River farmers are currently deciding between planting winter wheat this fall or spring wheat next spring. Winter wheat and spring wheat are usually about equally profitable.

Question 5 of 7
The Testament of William Thorpe was published around 1530 as an appendix to Thorpe’s longer Examination. Many scholars, however, doubt the attribution of the testament Thorpe because, whereas the Examination is dated 1406, the Testament is dated 1460. One scholar has recently argued that the 1460 date be amended to 1409, based on the observation that when these numbers are expressed as Roman numerals, MCCCCLX and MCCCCIX, it becomes easy to see how the dates might have become confused through scribal error.
Which of the following, if true, would most support the scholar’s hypothesis concerning the date of the Testament?CorrectIncorrect
Question 6 of 7
Advertising by mail has become much less effective, with fewer consumers responding. Because consumers are increasingly overwhelmed by the sheer amount of junk mail they receive, most discard almost all offers without considering them. Thus, an effective way for corporations to improve response rates would be to more carefully target the individuals to whom they mail advertising, thereby cutting down on the amount of junk mail each consumer receives.
Which of the following, if true, would most support the recommendation above?CorrectIncorrect
Question 7 of 7

Supplies in local freshwater reservoirs have been declining for years because water is being used faster than it can be replenished. Since the price of tap water has been low, few users have bothered to adopt even easy conservation measures.
The two sections in boldface play which of the following roles in the economist’s argument?CorrectIncorrect
