    Not all notation or nomenclature is standard.

    Please define:

    Multiplier --
    Money Multiplier --
    Income Multiplier to Money Supply --

    Please define:

    Known relationships between fiscal policy and its effect on the money supply.
    Known relationships between bond transactions and the money supply.

    You probably have to read the chapter a couple more times and extract the formulas and theoretical relationships.
