Sabs Does this not depend on where you are in the curve? If diminishing marginal returns then cost curves move upwards
AUAU tricky Q.
boddunah good one. tricky. chose ii as an answer ,but wrong. thought it was marginal cost and average cost. did not look at "product" part in marginal product.
indrasenareddy can some one please eleaborate.

Marginal product sounds very abstract. can it be equated with marginal revenue. what is diff btw productivity and marginal product.
JohnnyWu Knew something wasn't right.
thekobe the relationship between marginal product and cost curves is inverse, thus none of the answers makes sense
kondagadu they should alteast have the option none of the above to reflect the choices we get in the exam
schweitzdm kondagadu, I believe there are no questions on the CFA exam that have answers such as "all of the above" or "none of the above." (Someone please correct me if I'm mistaken!)

This is a basic question. For questions that are more like the exams, check the 'review question' area.
