I am facing a tricky situation in which I need your help -

Consider the below mentioned CR passage of one of the Boldface questions -

"A product that represents a clear technological advance over competing products can generally command a high price. Because technological advances tend to be quickly surpassed and companies want to make large profits while they still can, many companies charge the maximum possible price for such a product. But large profits on the new product will give competitors a strong incentive to quickly match the new product's capabilities. Consequently, the strategy to maximize overall profit from a new product is to charge less than the greatest possible price."

Considering it a RC passage what do you think would be the Primary Purpose of the passage?
Please justify your view.
-----
IMO, this passage seems neutral in tone and the Primary Purpose could be something like -
1-"Presenting a strategy to charge a product that has technological advance."
2- "Describing a course of action that can be adopted by a company."

However, the official solution section of the passage shows that "the argument advocates certain position" - this is clearly a positive tone about the passage.

Any opinion that how to resolve this paradox?
