needed to work to support herself and her son. Life was very difficult for a single mother. [1] She soon found a
job as a typist, but she was not very good at it. [2] She made a lot of errors typing leading her to formulate a
white tempura paint to hide them. [3] Using her kitchen as a laboratory, she developed a liquid that other people wanted to buy and use. She named this liquid “Mistake Out”.

Read the following passage and choose the correct answer to each of the questions.

Competition

Rivalry among business and service industries is called competition. This feature of a market economy
encourages business to improve their good and services, keep their prices affordable, and offer new products to attract more buyers.

There are four basic types of competition in business that form a continuum from pure competition through
monopolistic competition and oligopoly to monopoly. (See diagram) At one end of the continuum, pure
competition results when every company has a similar product. Companies that deal in commodities such as
wheat or corn are often involved in pure competition. In Pure Competition, it is often the ease and efficiency of distribution that influences purchase.

In contrast, in monopolistic competition, several companies may compete for the sale of items that may be
substituted. The classic example of monopolistic competition is coffee and tea. If the price of one is perceived
as too high, consumers may begin to purchase the other. Coupons and other discounts are often used as part of a marketing strategy to influence sales.

Oligopoly occurs when a few companies dominate the sales of a product or service. For example, only five
airline carriers control more than 70 percent of all ticket sales in the United States. In oligopoly, serious
competition is not considered desirable because it would result in reduced revenue for every company in the
group. Although price wars do occur, in which all companies offer substantial savings to customers, a
somewhat similar tendency to raise prices simultaneously is also usual.

Finally, monopoly occurs when only one firm sells the product. Some monopolies have been tolerated for
producers of goods and services that have been considered basic or essential, including electricity and water. In these cases, it is government control, rather than competition, that protects and influences sales.
The following chart represents the competition continuum.

Most....................Competition........................Least
Pure Monopolistic - oligopoly - Monopoly competition

  • Customers may love money when companies have price wars
  • It is common for companies to compare for customers by lowering prices.
  • It is not unusual for all companies to increase prices at the same time.
