A function $f:D\rightarrow \mathbb{R}$ is said to be quasiconcave if the following set is a convex set for every value of $a\in\mathbb{R}$: $P_a = \{x\in D: f(x) \geq a\}$ To show that $f(x,y) =\min(x, 2y)$ is quasiconcave, we just need to show that $P_a = \{(x,y)\in \mathbb{R}^2: \min(x, 2y) \geq a\}$ is a convex set. For that we consider arbitrary $(x', y')...
