Content of first two pages of the Marking Scheme is given below, rest you will find in the PDF

1. The Marking Scheme carries only suggested value points for the answers. These are only guidelines and do not constitute the complete answers. Students can have their own expression and if the expression is correct, mark should be awarded accordingly.

2. As per orders of the Hon’ble Supreme Court,a candidate would now be permitted to obtain a photocopy of his/her Answer Book on payment of the prescribed fee. Examiners/Head Examiners are, therefore, once again reminded that they must ensure that evaluation is carried out strictly as per value points for each answer as given in the Marking Scheme.

3. Head Examiners/Examiners are hereby instructed that while evaluating the answer books, if the answer is found to be totally incorrect, the (X) should be marked on the incorrect answer and awarded ‘0’ mark.

4. Please examine each part of a question carefully and allocate the marks allotted for the part as given in the ‘Marking Scheme’ below.


5. Expected/suggested answers have been given in the ‘Marking Scheme’. To evaluate the answers, the value points indicated in the marking scheme should be followed.

6. For questions asking the candidate to explain or define, the detailed explanations and definitions have been indicated alongwith the value points.

7. For mere arithmetical errors, there should be minimal deduction. Only ½ mark should be deducted for such an error.

8. Where only two / three or a ‘given’ number of examples / factors / points are expected, only the first two / three or expected number should be read. The rest are irrelevant and must not be examined.

9. There should be no effort at ‘moderation’ of the marks by the evaluating teachers.

The actual total marks obtained by the candidate may be of no concern to the evaluators.

10. Higher order thinking ability questions are for assessing a student’s understanding / analytical ability.

General Note: In case of a numerical question, no marks should be awarded if only the final answer has been given, even if it is correct.

(c) Decrease in expenditure on it.



(b) Goes on falling.



Sum of the quantities that all consumers of a commodity are willing to buy at a given price during a period of time.

(i) There are only a few firms or a few large firms.

(ii) There are barriers to the entry of firms.

(iii) There is interdependence of firms.

(iv) There is non-price competition. (Any one)

(1) Slopes downward from left to right.

(2) Concave to the origin. (Statements only)







A consumer buys a good upto the point at which


Suppose price falls, then


This induces consumer to buy more of the good. It shows inverse relation between price and demand of a good.

Alternative answer:

Suppose a consumer buys only two goods X and Y and is in equilibrium, then.

(MUx)/Px = (MUy)/Py

Suppose Px falls, then

(MUx)/Px > (MUy)/Py

Since per rupee MUx is more than per rupee MUy the consumer will buy more of X by diverting expenditure from good Y to good X .It shows inverse relation between price and demand for good X.


All points on an IC show the same level of utility from the consumption of the two goods, the consumer consumes. So, if the consumer consumes more of one good, he must reduce the consumption of the other good to keep total level of utility the same. This makes an IC negatively sloped.
