I am not sure how to answer this question. Could you please elaborate on this topic?
The correct answer is the following
We have to decide if the goods and services being provided are individual, public or merit goods.
So the good and services provided are merit goods because they come from the government and the private sector. They were collected by taxes.
Your cousin attends a nearby elementary school that is supported financially by local property tax revenue. Being that the case, the goods and services provided are public because they come from the government and the private sector. Taxes are helping the young man get their education. The Government provide merit goods and services to promote consumption and equity. The government considers that consumption would not be based on the ability to pay.
