2) Real GDP
3) GDP deflator
4) Consumer Price Index
5) GDP calculation in income method
6) GDP calculation in expenditure method
7) GDP calculation in production method
9) Difference between CPI and GDP deflator
10) Consumption function

2. Draw circular flow of income for
1) Closed economy with out government and capital market 2) Open economy with government and capital market

3. Discuss with numerical example
1) In a closed economy budget deficit equals the gap between private savings and investment 2) In an open economy if government wants to increase investment keeping budget deficit constant then import must be increased and/or export must be decreased.

4. Given
Y=C+Io+Go
C=Co+cYd
Yd=Y-T
T=To+tY
a) Find out equilibrium level income Y*, consumption C* and Tax T* b) If Co=25, c=0.6, Io=20, Go=15, To=3, t=0.2 then find out values of Y*, C*and T* and show equilibrium using Keynesian cross diagram

5. The following table provides information on the quantity and price of the commodities produced in a closed economy during 2 consecutive years | 1989| 1990|
| Production (units)| Price(\$)| Production (units)| Price(\$)| Food| 150| 50| 140| 45|
Clothing| 200| 25| 210| 20|
Machinery| 100| 20| 110| 25|
Building| 125| 150| 150| 140|
Education| 75| 30| 100| 35|

Assuming that these are the only final commodities produced in the economy find out 1) Nominal and real GDP at 1989 prices and comment.
