kanupriya is right... under utilisation of resources / inneffictive use of resources for example when there is unemployment or workers go on strike has NO EFFECT ON THE PPC.. rather the economy produces at a point INSIDE the PPC as the economy is NOT PRODUCING AT ITS FULL POTENTIAL. if question is 3/4 marker... make a diagram and then show the initial and final points of production
