Thank you for using the site.

The expression for the total expenditure is:

Total expenditure = Price * Quantity

Price comes from the supply curve:

Price = 14 + 5Q

The total expenditure is then:

Total expenditure = (14 + 5Q) * Q = 14Q + 5Q^2

The marginal expenditure curve is then the derivative of the total expenditure:

Marginal expenditure = (d/dQ)(14Q + 5Q^2) = 14 + 10Q

Solution: 3) ME=14+10Q

Please feel free to ask if you have any additional questions about this solution.
