a free medicine given to the patients in hospitals is not a scarce commodity?true or false .explain it with reference to opportunity cost and zero price? Give some other examples also.

False. Although medicine is available at zero price but still it is a scarce commodity because it involves some opportunity cost. A good is not scarce when :
(1) it is available at zero price.
(2) it involves no opportunity cost.
