mano ji, kiya ye idea hai ya correct solution hai????? plzzzz tell.thanks.

ur solution is correct.

Why MPC is negative? Is't it the tax that should be written as negative?

What if the tax is decreased instead of increasing? Will MPC still be written as negative?

1. a.    Personal income

Personal income= national income - corporate profit - social insurance contribution - net interest + dividend + govt. transfers + personal interest income

Personal interest=1500-200-250-350+100+50+40

Personal interest=890 billion Rs.

1. b.    Personal disposable income

Personal disposable income= personal income- tax

Personal disposable income= 890-410

Personal disposable income=480 billion Rs.

but if we solve by adding first and then subtracting then the ans is (a)510(b)100

just need to solve the question according to the formula !!

naznoor this is complete solution
