If inflation goes up, the value of the dollar goes down...which means you can't buy as much for each dollar. Which answer does that match?

It's either A or C, but just because inflation goes up doesn't mean you can't buy as much, your real income may increase.

Which is why I'm asking. Yours is clearly C, but I feel like A is a trick.

Even if you make 10 times more...it doesn't mean you can buy more per your dollar when inflation increases.

during inflation value of currency depreciates, ie with the same amt of money u can now buy less of goods. wic means purchasing power of currency (here dollar ) decreases during inflation.

It's just my teacher, she insists on making it confusing. She wrote the textbook and workbook, so she may mean it a different way. Thanks though! I have another question (or few)

Inflation is: A) not regarded as an economic problem because every person's nominal income rises in proportion to the increase in the price level B) Regarded as an economic problem because every person's nominal income rises in proportion to the increase in the price level C) REgarded as an economic problem because it can have redistributive effects, lead to increased speculation, and cause greater uncertainty D) Regarded as an economic problem because where there is inflation, everyone is worse off.

Unless this is some trick question concerning relative exchange rates with foreign currencies, the answer must be (C). Given a certain number of dollars and holding everything else constant, purchasing power decreases during inflationary periods. Increasing one's income doesn't change the issue... every dollar in today's economy purchase relatively less in tomorrow's economy if inflation is occurring
