Suppose a Monopoly has a High Fixed Cost= 0.5 and VC=0 .
The Profit Max O/t : Q=1 But the Profit = -0.13 (which is < 0)

which means -0.13 > -0.5

Should the Firm Produce produce Q=1 or Q=0 ?


I am confused here. The answer says Q=0 ,but doesn't it make sense to produce 1 Q and sell it and offset it to the fixed cost.But if it produces Q=0 it will still have a sunk cost of -0.5.

There is no mention of LR & SR in the question ,so I suppose its talking about LR .
