Expert Answer:

Summative Assessment I will consist of questions related to Comprehension, Grammar and Writing.
Following are some examples:
 
Comprehension:

The study of economics can be traced back to the ancient times. Economics, as we know today, has evolved from its historical definition over the years. The term is used quite widely today. Let us read more about this interesting area of study.

Quite surprisingly, a subject that deals with money and economic activity had its origins in the field of Philosophy. It was considered as a part of Political Science and was named Political Economy. It is the study of our monetary choices; what we decide to buy and not to buy. The origin of the word can be traced to ancient Greek. “Oikos” means house and “nomos” means customs or laws.

There are two main types of economics: microeconomics and macroeconomics.  While microeconomics studies the buyer-seller dynamics, macroeconomics studies the economic conditions affecting nations and their monetary relationships with one another.

Economics throws light on how humans buy and spend money, how countries use their resources, how labourers operate, how investments work, how businesses fail and how tax effects population.
