I picked C?

The short-run supply curve for a firm in a perfecly competive market is:

A) Likely to be horizontal

    1) no no no. First marginal revenue would not be increasing in a competitive market (or any other market). Go with A

    2) no no no. Short run SUPPLY should be upward sloping. Go with D

  • Micoreconomics -

    I had figured out the 2 question answer is D.

    I am not clear why the first question answer is A.

    I know production takes place until MC=MR.

    Why would it then be A
