    Explanation
    Timing is critical in media planning because the success of an advertising campaign can be influenced by when and how frequently ads are shown. The correct answer, "More sales = more advertising and less sales = less advertising," suggests that when a company is experiencing higher sales, it should invest more in advertising to maintain or further increase its sales. Conversely, when sales are declining, it may be wise to reduce advertising spending to align with the lower demand. This approach ensures that advertising efforts are aligned with the company's sales performance and optimizes the use of resources.
