The answer is 3 – Price skimming is a pricing strategy in which a business sets a relatively high initial price for a product or service at first, then lowers the price over time. It is effective only when the firm is facing an inelastic demand curve. If the long run demand schedule is elastic, market equilibrium will be achieved by quantity changes rather than price changes. Penetration pricing is a more suitable strategy in this case.
