The “shut-down point” in the short run is the point, where P = AVC. Below this point the firm can't cover even its variable costs and should shut down.
b) If perfectly competitive firms are incurring a loss in the short run, then some of the firms will exit the market, until in the long-run all the rest firms will receive only zero profits producing at the point at which P = ATC = LRATC (long-run ATC).
