    A) true. The gains from trade depend mainly on the change in terms of trade. The goods which the country has no comparative advantage and expensive will be cheaper. If the demand is elastic, the quantity demand will increase more than the reduction in price. The gains of trade will increase.

    B) true. Because after trade the price changes will have less effect on quantity demanded.

    C) true. The reason is the same as B.
