A. a fall in equilibrium price and quantity
B. an increase in equilibrium price and quantity
C. an increase in equilibrium price and a fall in quantity
D. both equilibrium price and quantity will remain unchanged

Correct Answer:

Option D = both equilibrium price and quantity will remain unchanged

Explanation

If there is an increase in supply while the demand tends to remain the same, prices will most likely fall.

So an increase in the supply of fish in the market will only affect the demand and price of the fish as they may be more fish in the market than people who are willing and ready to buy the fish. This, however, will not affect the prices or the quantity demanded of meat.
