    Generally well done.
    I agree with most of your answers, disagree with some, and some I'm not to sure about.

    31-35 I agree

    36) elasticity of supply is (%change in Qs) / (%change in P). If this is less than 1, supply is inelastic.

    37-40 I agree. (I presume that total surplus is the sum of consumer and producer surplus).

    41) I disagree. Draw a diagram of supply and demand and a binding price floor (price is set above equilibrium price). Final Q will occur where the fixed price hits demand, and will be a shortage. Look at the new area of producer and consumer surplus. It should be entirely contained in the old area -- total surplus declines.

    42 I agree

    43) I don't believe there is a general agreement on the definition of "short run". I personally agree with your answer.

    44) I personally don't see a big distinction between "marginal", "incremental", or "variable" I would probably go with "variable" myself.

    45) I disagree. A fixed input is one whose quantity cannot be changed in a particular period.

    46) In general, I agree with your answer. However, I have seen, in textbooks, total product curves for competitive industries, as a relationship between total product and price.

    47) If adding an input leads to an increase in total output but a smaller increase than the previous input (and a larger increase than the next input), the firm must be experiencing diminishing returns.

    48) I agree

    49) tangent to and infinite number of SHORT run average cost (or short run average variable cost curves)

    50) when diseconomies of scale occur, long run average cost curves rise.
