a. Expand outward proportionally
b. Expand outward largely in the direction the labor intensive good.
c. Expand outward largely in the direction of the capital intensive good.
d. Not expand until labor grows
Production Possibility Frontier
The PPF is downward sloping. When it is concave to the origin, opportunity cost( which is also the slope of PPF ) increases. When it is a straight line, opportunity cost is constant. When the PPF is convex ( such type of PPF is extremely rare )opportunity cost declines.
