What is marginal disutility?
I have this economics assignments regarding the numbers of pizza's vs. total utility vs. marginal utility. The question asks "Under what conditions would more pizzas be a marginal disutility?"

If consuming them would actually result in dissatisfaction.
Would one more pizza make you barf.. or make you feel otherwise uncomfortable? Disutility
Would another piece of pizza satisfy your hunger a bit more? Utility

Not sure, but sounds to me like it's asking when the MU of pizza becomes negative; i.e. when you lose utility from your next pizza, which would occur after the MU curve reaches its local maximum and diminishing marginal utility sets in.
