monopolies and elasticity

Recalling what you have learned about elasticity, what can you say about the connection between the price a monopolist chooses to charge and whether or not demand is elastic, unitary, or inelastic at that price? (Hint: Examine the marginal revenue curve of a monopolist. The fact that marginal revenue becomes negative at low prices implies that a portion of the demand curve cannot possibly be chosen.) Please include an example with your posting.
