A lot of people die and many factories were destroyed because of severe earthquake in a country . how will it affect the country's ppc. expain

Dear Student,
The answer given by Shreya is correct. Severe earthquake in a country leads to decline in both human (as people die) as well as capital (factories are destroyed) resources. As a result of which less resources are left for producing the goods. Thus, the decline in resources will lead to a leftward shift in the Production Possibility Curve (PPC).

In case of any doubts, do get back to us.

since resources are decreased (huiman resources) and capital also dectreased the production possibility curve will shift towards left(downwards) because now less of good y and x is produced
