(2dii)
It is elastic because the coefficient is greater than 1

===========================

(5a)
Demand schedule is the table that shows the relationship between quantity demanded and price of goods.

Or

It can be defined as the list showing the number of quantities of a commodity demanded at various prices.

(5b)
(i). Effective demand: this is the type of demand which is supported with the ability and willingness to pay.

(ii). Composite Demand: Demand is composite when a commodity can be used for more than one purpose

(iii). Derived Demand: It occurs when a commodity is wanted not for the satisfaction it yields but for the reason that they are useful in producing another commodity.

=======================

(4a)
(i)Labour force: Labour force can be defined as the total number of persons available to supply the labour for the production of economic goods and services. In other words, it is the total number of people of working age in a country who are able and willing by law to work.

(ii)Efficiency of labour: Efficiency of labour may be defined as the ability of labour to increase output without increasing the quantity of labour. Increase in efficiency is usually expressed in terms of increase in output of labour within a shorter period of time without any fall in the quality of goods and services produced.

(4b)
(PICK ANY FIVE)
(i)Age structure of the population: The structure of a country’s population is a significant determinant of the size of the labour force. The lower the dependant people, the higher the supply of labour and vice versa. In otherword, the labour force will increase in a country with a greater number of its people between the ages of 18 and 65 years.

(ii)Role of women in the society: In some societies, women are usually prevented from engaging in gainful employment because of religious belief, social and cultural factors and this affects the size of labour force.

(iii)Number of working hours and working days: The number of working hours per day and the number of working days in a week or a year also helps to determine the supply of labour.

(iv) The number of disabled: When the number of disabled persons is high especially within the working population, the supply for labour will be low.

(v) The number of people unwilling to work: There are certain number of able bodied people who are also between the age bracket of 18 and 65 years but are unwilling to work. If their population is high, it will affect the size of supply of labour

(vi) Migration: The rate of migration can also affect the size of labour force. If the rate at which the working population leaves a country is higher than the rate at which people come in, it will lead to reduction in the supply of labour.

(vii)Trade union activities: The activities of trade union may also affect the supply of supply. For example, when a long period of training is imposed on a certain trade, this may discourage people from engaging in such trade or profession leading to a reduction in supply of labour.

(viii)Government policies: Certain government policies can affect the supply of labour. E.g. specific laws are made to exclude children and women from working in ministries. This can reduce the supply of labour to that area or field.

======================

No 6a

i. Specific tax
A specific tax is a fixed amount of tax placed on a particular good. It is also referred to as a per-unit tax, and the tax will depend on the quantity sold (not price).

ii. Value-added tax (VAT) : is a flat tax levied on an item.

(ii) Credit Creation: commercial banks are perhaps the only financial institutions with this unique function. Commercial banks create credit through accepting deposits and providing loans, pushing money into the economy.

(iii) Transfer of funds: the transfer of funds from a customer’s account to another account is another vital function of banks. Fund transfer is a valid means of paying for transactions, as well as other financial activities. Transfer of funds can be carried out through several ways such as drafts, standing orders, cheques, USSD platforms, and electronic banking.

(iv) Provision of loans: besides accepting deposits, another function of commercial banks is the provision of loans.

  3. Review the course’s main ideas.
  4. For each big idea, review its sub-topics and supporting details.
  5. Practice. Use old exams to get a feel for the style of questions you might be asked.

  • Read your notes out loud.
  • If you don’t complete a particular task, don’t worry just carry it over to your next session.
  • Don’t simply memorize facts. Ask yourself broad open-ended questions about the material that’s been covered.

The Night Before the Exam

  1. Sleep!
  2. Try to stick to the review. Don’t try to learn anything new.
  3. Picture yourself succeeding. One of the key elements for many world-class performers is visualization.

The Day of the Exam

  1. Eat. Don’t skip the meal before your exam because not eating can result in tiredness and poor concentration.
  2. Arrive just a few minutes before your exam to avoid the usual widespread and contagious panic

During the Exam

  1. Use a cheat sheet even if you’re not allowed to bring one into the exam. Make a cheat sheet of the material you are certain will help. Take it to the exam; throw it out before you sit down, then recopy it from memory, somewhere on the exam booklet, as soon as you can.
  2. Read all of the questions (except multiple choice) before beginning, and write notes on the paper for anything important that occurs to you as you read.
  3. If you’re having a problem with one question move on and return to the problem question if you have time left at the end.

  1. Pick the most important subjects in your study material.
  2. Look over your lecture notes, or someone else’s if you don’t have any, and see what the lecturer focused on. Concentrate your cramming on these broad areas. You don’t have time to learn specifics.
  3. The key to cramming is memorization, so it only works for “knowledge” questions. Focus on material that can be memorized.
  4. Spend 25% of your time cramming and 75% drilling yourself. Recite and repeat the information.
  5. Relax: being upset at yourself for not studying earlier won’t help and may hurt your performance in the class
  6. Remember how you felt while studying and while writing the exam and plan to study earlier next time!
