Total spending made by the household sector at a given level of income is called consumption. Whereas, the functional relationship between savings and the level of income is the savings function. Here on MCQs.club we have prepared Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) on Consumption Savings and Investment that cover consumption savings and investment in macroeconomics MCQs, the relationship between them, the factors that determine consumption savings and investment. Moreover, there are MCQs on Marginal efficiency of capital (MEC) and types of Investments. Our MCQs are helpful for Competitive exams, Business management exams and Professional accountancy exams.
