COMP 3121 Homework 5

Question 1

Read the following payoff matrix. Select the correct statement(s) below.

1. Neither player A nor player B has a dominant strategy.

2. Player A has a dominant strategy D whereas player B has the dominant strategy R.

3. Only player B has a dominant strategy L. The best response of player A is strategy D.

4. Only player B has a dominant strategy L. The best response of player A is strategy U.

Question 2

When multiple Nash Equilibria exist in a game, what should the players’ action be?

1. Select the equilibrium with maximum payoff

2. Need more external information to make decisions

3. There is no rule to predict on the unique choice of the players

4. Select the equilibrium with high payoff and low risk

Question 3

Select all Nash equilibrium under the following payoff matrix

1. (D,L)

2. (1/3, 2/3)

3. (1/2, 1/2)

4. (1/4, 3/4)

5. (U,R)

6. (D,R)

Question 4

Select the Nash equilibrium for mixed strategy under the following payoff matrix.

1. (1/2, 1/2)

2. (1/3, 2/3)

3. (1/4, 3/4)

4. (1,0)

Question 5

A strategy is weakly dominant if, regardless of what any other players do, the strategy earns a

player a payoff at least as high as any other strategy, and, the strategy earns a strictly higher

payoff for some profile of other players’ strategies. Hence, a strategy is weakly dominant if it is

always at least as good as any other strategy, for any profile of other players’ actions, and is

strictly better for some profile of others’ strategies.

Consider the following two questions with the following game

1. ______ Nash equilibrium

2. ______ Nash equilibrium using weak dominant strategy

Which of the following is correct in filling up the two questions?

1. There exists, There is no

2. There is no, There is no

3. There exists, There exists
