### HideShow timer Statistics

There are 350 brands of cell phones in the market today. However, our store only stocks the top 10 brands. In order to increase our sales, we plan to increase the size of our inventory to the top 50 brands.

Which of the following, if true, points out a major flaw in the plan above?

A. The capabilities of the top five cell phones are almost the same, with no brand having consistent superiority in all respects.

B. The top 8 brands account for almost all the cell phones sold

C. As users get more sophisticated, they want to try out the lesser known brands which might offer some other value to them.

D. Less popular brands provide little profit to the store because they have to be discounted to be sold

E. The leading brands are now losing sales to less popular brands that offer similar features for a lower cost
