Question no 91 to 95

In the analysis of factors affecting demand and revenue. Smith confirmed to the deviation of total sales and revenue for a single firm at a given location. “But the volume of the demand cone and hence the total revenue obtainable can vary among possible locations in accordance with variations in any of the cost and demand conditions involved. In real world it is unlikely that population density, production costs, transport rates, demand functions and the like will remain fixed over anything other than a very small area…. It is important to add to the general locational principles…. Changes in the variables affecting cost and revenue will bring about changes in the prevailing cost/revenue situation, and thus changes in the comparative economic advantage of alternative locations.

(1) Increasing

(2) Decreasing

(4) Change jn transport costs

Q.94. Which one of the following locational decision of a firm, to take comparative advantage within market area, is correct when prices of goods produced by the firm increase?

(1) No-machine cost change

(2) No-location change

(3) Search for alternative location

(4) Search for alternative inputs

(Question no 96-100)

“A powerful manifestation of the earth atmosphere energy budget and moisture system is the tropical cyclone. Which originates entirely with in tropical air masses. The tropics extends from the Tropic of Cancer at 23.5°N, to the Tropic of Capricorn at 23.5°S containing the equitorial zone between 10°N and 10°S. Approximately 80 tropical cyclones occur annually world wide. Some are powerful enough to be classified as hurricanes and typhoons. Cyclonic systems forming in the tropics are quite different from mid latitude cyclone because the air of the tropics is essentially homogeneous, with no fronts or conflicting air masses. Tropical depression intensity into tropical storms as they cross the Atlantic. A rule of thumb has emerged. If they mature early along their track, they tend to curve northward towards the North Atlantic and miss the United States. The critical position is approximately 40° W longitudes. Officially, tropical cyclone season is from June 1 to November 30 each year”.
