A
Key Concept
Complementarity in Demand
Explanation
When the price of a good decreases, the demand for its complementary good increases, leading to a higher quantity demanded. The price of the complementary good may decrease if the supply remains unchanged due to increased competition among sellers to capture the increased demand.
