A Swiss watch company advertises its history of superior craftsmanship. The company thinks that this would​ a. ​Make the demand for the product less elastic b. ​Make the customers less sensitive to the price c. ​Assist them with differentiating their product d. ​All of the above

Answers

Answer:

The correct answer is letter "B": ​Make the customers less sensitive to the price.

Explanation:

There are several reasons that could make products become elastic or inelastic. Reputation typically makes goods and services be considered inelastic. These types of products do not see a change in their quantity demanded in front of changes in price.

Thus, if a Swiss watch company promotes their history of superior craftsmanship is attempting to aware consumers about its watch quality and reputation so if they decide to increase prices consumers will be less sensitive to the change.

Answers

Answer:

D) Has no effect on total equity but decreases retained earnings.

Explanation:

Dividends refer to the distribution of profits to the common stock holders.

This is basically an appropriation of profits.
