Product AProduct B QuantityPriceQuantityPrice2014100$1.0050$2.002015100$1.5050$3.00

What was nominal GDP in 2014?

Nominal GDP= (100*$1.00) + ($2.00*50) = $ 200

What was nominal GDP in 2015?

Nominal GDP= (100*$1.50) + ($3.00*50) = $ 300

d. What caused the growth in nominal GDP in 2015?

The prices of product A and Product B have increased by 50% and so has the nominal GDP, and this reflects changes in the inflation rate rather than the effective purchasing power.
