Solution

The correct option is B

Q<R


Revenue-maximizing output corresponds to MR=0 and profit-maximizing output corresponds to MR=MC.  Since MC>0, MR curve cuts the MC curve first before cutting the quantity axis. Hence, for a monopoly firm, the profit-maximizing output is always less than the revenue-maximizing output or Q<R
