Question 1:

Explain demand function in detail.

It is the behavioural relationship between quantity consumed and a person’s maximum willingness to pay for the particular quantity. If the price is higher, that means lesser quantity demanded by buyers or vice-versa. There are many factors that influence a buyer’s decision. For example – Income, taste & preferences, price of substitute goods.

Question 2:
