    Correct Answer
    B. Vertical integration
    Explanation
    Vertical integration refers to an organization's control over a product from production through distribution to exhibition. This means that the organization has ownership or control over every stage of the supply chain, allowing them to have a greater degree of control and coordination. This can lead to cost savings, increased efficiency, and the ability to better align the product with the organization's overall strategy. Horizontal integration, on the other hand, refers to the expansion of an organization's activities within the same stage of the supply chain, while conglomeration refers to the diversification of an organization into unrelated industries. Networking, on the other hand, refers to the establishment of connections and relationships with other organizations for mutual benefit.
