Answer to question 1
The correct answer to the given question is option d. Location-specific.
A firm gets a location-specific advantage depending upon the location where it operates. If various partners in the supply chain are located in the vicinity of the firm, it becomes easier for the firm to carry out supply chain management and it also reduces the transportation cost. Similarly, if the distribution centers are also located in the vicinity, it becomes easier to reach out to customers.
The lifecycle-specific advantage is gained by firms which sell the products that are in demand throughout the year regardless of the season such as pharmaceutical and food staple firms. The innovation-specific advantage occurs when innovative products or services help in increasing the sales and profits for a firm.
