Q Which of the following is not the feature of an imperfect competition?
A homogeneous product is one that cannot be distinguished from competing products from different suppliers. In other words, the product has essentially the same physical characteristics and quality as similar products from other suppliers. One product can easily be substituted for the other.
A monopolist is a price
A monopoly firm is a price maker or price setter because it is the sole producer of a product.This is in contrast to a competitive firm which is a price taker with zero market power.

Price discrimination can take place only in
Which market have characteristic of product differentiation
Monopolistic competition occurs when an industry has many firms offering products that are similar but not identical. Firms in monopolistic competition typically try to differentiate their product in order to achieve in order to capture above market returns.
Under monopoly form of market, TR is maximum when
Marginal revenue means additional revenue generate/received from the sale of additional unit of output.In imperfect (monopoly) when TR increases MR decreases , when TR become maximum MR reaches to zero.
