More people are going to want to pay the minimum price offered. If they are offering free cable then many people will want to take advantage of that.

b)

More people are willing to pay for cable as the price of cable service decreases.

c)

Because the price Media Cable expects to receive for its output will not remain constant as output increases.

d)

Because fewer people are willing to pay a higher price. More people are willing to pay a lower price but Media Cable is less willing to provide the service at the lower price.
