====================================
SECTION A [Answer only one question from this section]

(2ai)
Percentage change in price = change in price/old price × 100%
= \$6.00 – \$5.00/\$5.00 × 100%
= 1/5 ×100%
= 20%

(2aii)
percentage change in quantity supplied = change in supply/old supply × 100%
= 80kg – 75kg/75kg × 100%
= 5/75 × 100%
100/15%
= 6⅔% or 6.67%

(2b)
coefficient of price elasticity of supply = %change in supply/%change in price
= 100/15 ÷ 20
= 100/15 × 1/20
= 5/15
= 1/3 or 0.333

(2c)
(i) The supply is inelastic since elasticity is less than one.

Commercial banks are required by law to keep reserves equal to a certain percentage of both time and demand deposits liabilities with the central banks. It is on the basis of these reserves that the central bank transfers funds from one bank to another to facilitate the clearing of cheques.
Thus the central bank acts as the custodian of the cash reserves of commercial banks and helps in facilitating their transactions.
(iii) Custody and Management of Foreign Exchange Reserves:
The central bank keeps and manages the foreign exchange reserves of the country. It buys and sells foreign currencies at international prices. Further, it fixes the exchange rates of the domestic currency in terms of foreign currencies.

(6c)

The central bank applies this policy with the aim of regulating the volume of money in circulation. When there is too much money in circulation, the central bank will sell securities. But in other to expand the volume, it buys securities
(ii) Liquidity or cash ratio: The commercial banks are mandated by the government to keep a special proportion eg 25%, of their total deposit with the central bank in other to control the volume of credit. The size can be extracted or expanded depending on the economic condition of the nation
(iii) Bank rate: This is the minimum rate of interest charged by the central bank for discounting bill of exchange by lowering or raising the rate, the central bank can control the activities of the commercial banks. When the rate increases, loan to the public (customers) reduces, while a fall in the rate will encourage more loans

(iii)Higher tax yield:As a result of high volume of money in circulation, government is able to realise high yield from taxes
(iv)Higher output:Higher prices of goods and services during inflation encourage producers to embark on large scale production,resulting in greater output.

(7c)
[Choose Any three]
(i)Decline in profits: Deflation causes a decline in profits as a result of low volume of money in circulation
(ii)Fall in prices of goods:As a result of decline in the volume of money in circulation, the prices of goods and services tend to fall.
