what is oppurtunity cost..

Answer / vijay gawalkar

Scarcity of resources is one of the more basic concepts of
economics. scarvity necessitates trade-offs, and trade-offs
result in an opportunity cost. While the cost of a good or
service often is thought of in monetary terms, the
opportunity cost of a decision is based on what must be
given up (the next best alternative) as a result of the
decision. Any decision that involves a choice between two
or more options has an opprtunity cost.
