    Meetali,

    We can't do your homework for you :)

    Hopefully this helps to point you in the right direction:

    What are the pros and cons of competing on price? When does it make sense? Think of companies that are competing on price - are they winning or losing? Why are they winning - at who's expense? If they are losing, who are they losing to? What strategy is the winning competitor utilizing?

    What are the pros and cons of competing on innovation? When does it make sense? Same questions as above.

    Is there a commonality between the two?
    What are the key differences? Does the same strategy work for all companies? Does it work for the same company at all times (when the company is just starting out vs a mature company)? Think about the product life cycle and what is required.

    If you can work on those, it will help you answer the question on which strategy is better.

    Good luck,

    I have closed your question and refunded your points. Please read our Important Guidelines before re-posting.

    We do not do homework assignments and this looks like a cut and paste of one. What we do, which is far more meaningful -- our experts provide a safe place to test hypotheses and try out ideas.

    What I suggest is that you come up with some ideas of you own and then re-post, including those ideas. Our experts can then tell you if you're on the right track, where else to look, or what the next logical step might be.

    Good luck.
