The expression of the supply function for a given question can be derived by substituting the given value for alpha into the equation. In this case, the given value for alpha is 1, so the expression for the supply function is 𝑞 = min (𝑧1,𝛽𝑧2 ). This can be justified by the fact that when alpha is equal to 1, the equation is simplified to the degree that the power of z1 is reduced to 1, as any number to the power of 1 is equal to itself.
