Correct answer choice is:

D. A decrease in the money supply

Explanation:

The Required Reserve quantitative relation is that the percentage/fraction of needed reserves that ought to control for each dollar of deposits in an exceeding facility establishment that's needed by the Federal Reserve. The reverse is going to be true once cash in hand decreases. That's a decrease within the cash in hand can cause a decrease in the quantity of cash that folks and corporations can hold and as a result, they're going to pay less. this can cause aggregate demand to decrease.
