Points on the graph:
a) According to the PPF, Person A has ___ hours to allocate between work and leisure.
b) Between points C and E, the opportunity cost of earning an additional $10 income is ___.
c) Between points C and A, the opportunity cost of one hour leisure is ___ in forgone income.
a) 8 (I looked at point C and did the slope of the point...)
b) 0 (I think it's 0 because no opportunity lost over leisure??)
c) $10 (took the difference between the points--basically rise/run and got $10...)
Are my answers correct? If not, please correct them? Thanks.

Unfortunately, I am having trouble visualizing the graph. what are on each axis? Is the PPF on the graph drawn? Are you given a wage rate?
b) is unlikely to be right as about everything we do has an opportunity cost, including giving up leisure time.

Wage rate is not given, hours (leisure) on x-axis, income (work) on y-axis
