    The correct answer is option b.

    Explanation:

    When the demand curve is elastic, this means that a change in price causes a greater change in quantity demanded of the commodity.

    We know that price and quantity demanded are inversely related. When the price of a commodity increases its quantity demanded will decrease by a greater proportion.

    This will cause the total expenditure to decrease, this shows that when demand is elastic price and total expenditure move in the opposite direction.
