Question # 54, Date : 23-Nov-2019
This post is a part of Project IR Butler 2019-20. Click here for Details


A new beverage company has been operating in two cities, one in City A and the other in City B. The company has stocked shelves equally in supermarkets in both cities, but has stocked twice as many shelves in UDS (up and down the street) stores in City A as in City B. The two cities have similar populations and economics and the sales at each store have been roughly equal. A consultant claims this shows that stocking shelves in UDS stores has not improved beverage sales.

In the table, select changes that the company could make in City A and City B, respectively, that together would probably be most helpful in testing the consultant's claim. Make only two selections, one for city A and one for City B in each column.

City ACity BValues
1. Double shelf space allotted to the beverage company in supermarkets
2. Eliminate its presence in supermarkets
3. Eliminate its presence in UDS stores.
4. Selectively choose only the largest UDS stores to have a presence in
5. Add beverage shelf space in gas stations and discount "99 cent" stores


Spoiler: :: OA
Ans 3 and 3 (3 for both)

Answer for both is 3, since the claim can only be justified by eliminating UDS stores in both the cities and then observing and comparing the behavior with that of the previous placement
