b. Thailand should specialize in food and Indonesia in cloth
c. Thailand should specialize in cloth and Indonesia in food
d. Neither country would benefit from specialization and trade

Expert's answer
Assumingthat Thailand can produce 40 units of food or 60 units of cloth and Indonesia can produce 30 units of food or 20 units of cloth, Thailand has comparative advantage in producing cloth, as its opportunity cost of producing 1 unit of cloth is 2/3 units of food and Indonesia needs 1.5 units of food to give up to produce 1 unit of cloth.
