I attached the problem.

I honestly have no idea how to even go about solving this problem. If someone can give me a hint, that'd be great.

Start by understanding what the problem is saying. You have a Leontief model of the form
[tex] \textbf{x} = C \textbf{x} + \textbf{d}, [/tex]
where d is external demand and C is the inter-sector internal demand matrix. The question is asking if it is OK to have cii > 1 for some i, and if not, why not.
It asks for both mathematical and real-world reasons.
