CFA Practice Question

Which of the following is an implicit (opportunity) cost of attending college?

I. The wages that you could have been earning
II. Tuition
III. The cost of books
IV. The cost of food
V. The cost of housing
Correct Answer: I

Tuition and the cost of books are explicit costs. Food and housing are not opportunity costs because you have to live somewhere and eat regardless of your occupation. However, you are implicitly giving up the wages that you could have earned.
