B. Factors specific to exports lose and factors specific to import-competing sectors gain.

C. Factors specific to exports gain and factors specific to import-competing sectors lose.

D. Mobile factors lose and specific factors gain.

E. Mobile factors gain and specific factors lose.

A. Wages rise in both sectors, and labour moves to manufactures.

B. Wages only rise in the manufacture sector.

by 10 %.

B. the return to land rises by more than 10 %, the return to capital falls and the wage rises

by 10 %.

C. the return to capital rises by more than 10 %, the return to land falls and the wage rises
