Incorrect. The market is in equilibrium if, at the current price, quantity demanded is equal to quantity supplied. At the current price of \$40, 30 units are demanded, but only 15 units are supplied, so the market is not in equilibrium. For further review, see section “Market Equilibrium”.
Correct! At the current price of \$40, 30 units are demanded but only 15 units are supplied, so the market is not in equilibrium. For further review, see section “Market Equilibrium”.

Incorrect. At a price of \$40, buyers demand 30 units while sellers supply only 15; there is excess demand in the market for cell phone plans. That excess demand will put upward pressure on the price of cell phone plans. For further review see section “Market Equilibrium”.
Correct! Because quantity demanded is greater than quantity supplied, we have excess demand. Excess demand will put upward pressure on the price of cell phone plans. For further review see section “Market Equilibrium”.
