    Not comparable. Fail to hold total budget and the consumption of other goods constant at the same time as (4,4) and (3,5) cost differently.

    |dw:1365401341275:dw| According to the given 2 conditions, we can draw 1 consumption curve and 1 indifference curve tangent to it at the point (4,4). We can also draw 1 consumption curve and 1 indifference curve to it at the piont (3,5). When I was trying to draw the last indifference curve I found the 2 indifference curve must cross with each other to complete the gragh. But you know indifference curves never cross. So the given conditions are wrong.
