a. The price level changes

i. Which curve shifts?

Neither one of the curves would shifts but a change in the price would cause a movement within the curves. ii. Which direction does it shift?

Neither
iii. What happens to aggregate output?

Neither
iv. What happens to the price level?

Neither
b.Consumer confidence declines

The aggregate supply curve would shift.

ii. Which direction does it shift?

It would shift to the right.
iii. What happens to aggregate output?
The aggregate output would increase.

iv. What happens to the price level?

The price level would fall.

i. Which curve shifts?
For the reason that the input costs would be higher it would be the aggregate supply that would shift.

ii. Which direction does it shift?

The direction that it will shift is left.
