  EXCEPTION TO THE LAW OF SUPPLY Exceptional or Abnormal Supply: is the supply pattern which does not abide by the law of supply, and therefore, gives rise to the reverse of the basic law of supply which states that the higher the price, the higher the quantity of commodity that will be supplied by the producer, and vice-versa.
