    I just wrote about how they aren't doing anything wrong etc. But thinking about my argument was probably one sided. What did you write for 1 b. Did you say how it's monopolistic or how it's more monopoly. ( I couldn't think of an orginal name lol)

    It was monopoly or oligopoly. Not monopolistic competition and oligopoly although the question was poorly worded by saying monopltist

    Then they are idiots because the paragraph was talking about how using e-books individual authors can become published (Monopolistic) Then you talk about the fact the big six still own 88% of the market and how that is oligopolistic.

    An industry can be both oligopolistic and monopolistic competition as monopolist competition requies a large no. Of buyers and sellers oligopoly is small number of buyers and sellers

    Oligopoly isn't just a small number of buyers and sellers, It is a small number of buyers and sellers controlling a large % but a lot of small sellers controlling the rest.

    No - you had to write about the merger becoming a monopoly and the industry being oligoply

    I did Monopolistic, But at most I can lose half marks on that question so it isn't much to worry about, my other answers will make up for it.
