[SOLVED] Which of the following is not a potential defensive move to ward off challenger firms?

Making an occasional strong counter-response to the moves of weak competitors to enhance the firm's image as a tough defender
Using a blue ocean strategy to maneuver around competitors and concentrate on capturing unoccupied or less contested market territory
