    Elastic refers to the fact that the market for that product will drastically change with price changes. The demand would decrease in this case therefore reducing revenue. I believe.

    The question told us we are in the elastic portion of the demand curve, so we know revenue will fall. This is equivalent to example A.

    Example A shows a price increase along the elastic portion of the demand curve. Example B shows a price increase along the inelastic portion of the demand curve.
