What is the shape of total revenue curve in Monopoly?

For a perfectly competitive firm with no market control, the total revenue curve is a straight line. For firms with more market control, especially monopoly, the total revenue curve is "hump shaped," increasing, reaching a peak, then declining. The slope of this total revenue curve is marginal revenue.

Similarly one may ask, what is the shape of average revenue and marginal revenue curves under monopoly?

Unlike under perfect competition, a firm under imperfect competition such as under monopoly can sell more only by lowering its price. Therefore, the average revenue curve is downward sloping and its corresponding marginal revenue curve lies below it.

Also Know, why is the average revenue curve horizontal? The average revenue curve is a horizontal straight line parallel to the X-axis and the marginal revenue curve coincides with it. This is because under pure (or perfect) competition the number of firms selling an identical product is very large.

Subsequently, question is, what is a revenue curve?
