V = 5, M = $5,000, Real GDP Y = 2500 units of output, P = $10. If the money supply doubled over a short time period to 10,000, the sample quantity theory would predict that M*V = P*Y, so if M1 = 2M, then P*Y will double too. But as output can be changed only in the long run, the price level will double. So, the right answer is D) The price level will double.
