Price P Q Q Quantity

Which of the following statements is true, if you consider estimating the point elasticity of demand between P' and P"?

If the elasticity is estimated using the point elasticity equation, the absolute value of the estimated elasticity will be larger if the starting point is P' rather than P".

The estimated elasticity, when using the point elasticity formula, will always be relatively more elastic when you move from a lower price to a higher price.

The estimated elasticity will be identical regardless of which price is the starting price.

None of the other statements are true.
