What is the most likely competitor for a company that manufactures gym shoes?
a. Gym Socks 'R' Us
b. Best Sneakers
c. Totally T-Shirts
d. Soccer Pros
I agree with all of your answers except the last one.
Then, is it b? What I think is that if people want gym shoes, then they probably want gym socks as well. So, wouldn't the sock company have to adjust prices similar to how the gym shoe company does it?
Please make sure you know what a competitor is.
Competition takes place between sellers of the same or similar product, so a does not apply here.
Right. So b must be the answer.
