Three airlines - IA, JA, and SA - operate on the Detroit-Michigan route. To increase the number of seats sold, SA reduced its fares and this was emulated by IA and JA immediately. The general belief was that the volume of the travel between detroit adn michigan would increase as a result.

Which of teh following , if true, would add credence to the general belief?

1. Increase in profitability of the three airlines.
2. Extension of the discount schme to the other routes.
3. A study that shows that air travellers in US are price-conscious.
4. A study that shows that as much as 80% of air travels in US is company-sponsored.

Where is this question from? How can you travel between Detroit and Michigan, when Detroit is in Michigan state. Unless it had said Michigan city, which is in Indiana.

Anyway, the answer should be 3.
