The First Banking Group's decision to invest in an
electronic network for transferring funds was based
on a cost advantage over a nonelectronic system of
about ten dollars per transaction in using an elec-
tronic system. Executives reasoned further that the
system would give them an advantage over competi-
tors.

Which of the following, if it is a realistic possibility,
most seriously weakens the executives' projection of
an advantage over competitors?
(A) The cost advantage of using the electronic sys-
tem will not increase sufficiently to match the
pace of inflation.
(B) Competitors will for the same reasons install
electronic systems, and the resulting overca-
pacity will lead to mutually damaging price
wars.
(C) The electronic system will provide a means for
faster transfer of funds, if the First Banking
Group wishes to provide faster transfer to its
customers.
(D) Large banks from outside the area served by
the First Banking Group have recently estab-
lished branches in that area as competitors to
the First Banking Group.
(E) Equipment used in the electronic network for
transferring funds will be compatible with
equipment used in other such networks.
