B
Key Concept
Quantity Demanded vs. Demand
Explanation
Owen's decision to buy more peaches in response to a price decrease reflects an increase in the quantity demanded, not an increase in demand. Demand refers to the entire relationship between price and the quantity consumers are willing to purchase, while quantity demanded is the specific amount consumers are willing to buy at a particular price. A movement along the demand curve due to a change in price indicates a change in quantity demanded.
