Which stage of the typical consumer product life cycle is out of place?
A and B
I am torn between A and C. Product development is part of the product life cycle but when I look it up on the web it is usually left out and just intro, growth, maturity, and decline are left.......but then I am not sure if the questions is using the answers in order meaning that C-maturity is out of place in the order it is given...but usually multiple choice questions will list the order in the question and not the answer....does that make sense??
Shouldn't maturity come after growth? Starbucks, for instance, grew very rapidly for a few years, but now is a mature product so there isn't a lot of room for the fast growth it's seen. Now Starbucks could be considered a mature company/product.
