Answer:

d. the Japanese firm will sell steel at a higher price abroad than at home.

Explanation:

Since the price elasticity of demand is higher in Japan than abroad, a slightly higher price will not affect exports negatively. Corporations will always try to maximize their profits and if they will try to sell their products at the highest possible price. If the price elasticity of demand is high, a high price will decrease total sales significantly, but if the price elasticity of demand, is low, a higher price has little influence on the quantity sold.
