    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Introduction
    C. Development
    E. Growth
    G. Maturity
    I. Decline
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Introduction, Development, Growth, Maturity, Decline. This is because the product life cycle refers to the stages that a product goes through from its introduction to the market until its eventual decline. The introduction stage is when the product is first launched and gains initial awareness and sales. The development stage involves refining the product and expanding its market reach. The growth stage is characterized by increased sales and market acceptance. The maturity stage is when the product reaches its peak sales and market saturation. Finally, the decline stage is when sales start to decline due to market saturation or obsolescence.

     Sales volume increases is an example of the 'Decline' stage of the Product Life Cycle Diagram.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because sales volume increasing is not an example of the 'Decline' stage of the Product Life Cycle Diagram. The decline stage is characterized by a decrease in sales and market demand for a product. When sales volume increases, it usually indicates that the product is in the growth or maturity stage of the life cycle, where demand is still strong and expanding.

     Costs are very high is an example of the 'Introduction' stage of the Product Life Cycle Diagram.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement "Costs are very high" indicates that the product is in the introduction stage of the product life cycle. During this stage, companies typically invest heavily in research and development, marketing, and production, resulting in high costs. As the product gains market acceptance and competition increases, costs tend to decrease in subsequent stages. Therefore, the statement aligns with the characteristics of the introduction stage, making the answer true.

     Increase in competitors entering the market is an example of the 'Maturity' stage of the Product Life Cycle Diagram.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    An increase in competitors entering the market indicates that the market is becoming saturated and reaching the maturity stage of the product life cycle. In the maturity stage, the market becomes more competitive as more companies enter and try to gain market share. This is because the product has already been adopted by a large portion of the target market, and there is limited room for growth. As a result, companies focus on differentiating their products and finding new ways to attract customers in order to maintain their market position.

     'Cost-plus pricing' is when the business calculates the cost of the product, and then adds a percentage to it, in order to make a profit.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Cost-plus pricing is a common pricing strategy used by businesses. It involves calculating the total cost of producing a product, including materials, labor, and overhead expenses, and then adding a predetermined profit margin or percentage to determine the selling price. This ensures that the business covers its costs and generates a profit. Therefore, the statement that "cost-plus pricing is when the business calculates the cost of the product and then adds a percentage to it in order to make a profit" is true.

     'Penetration pricing' is when a business sets a low price first, in order to attract new customers.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Penetration pricing is a pricing strategy where a business initially sets a low price for its products or services in order to attract new customers. This strategy is often used to quickly gain market share and create a customer base. By offering a lower price compared to competitors, the business aims to encourage customers to switch from other brands and try their products. This can help the business establish itself in the market and build customer loyalty over time. Therefore, the statement "Penetration pricing is when a business sets a low price first, in order to attract new customers" is true.
