ashish100 Where you at smart people? Help the rest of us confused people out. Hopefully I'll come back to this page again see some insights on this one. Thanks in advance.
przybmarta Think of it this way: The demand function represents the behavior of buyers. The question specifically refers to a normal good, which means that we can be certain of one thing: If the buyers income goes up, he/she will consume more. Therefore we are certain that C>0. If C<0, then the buyer would be consuming less when earning more, therefore making the good an inferior good.
