Solution 1

Interdependence between firms:- In an oligopoly market, the price and level of an output of one firm impact the price and level of an output of rival firms. Keeping this impact in mind, a firm decides the price and output in accordance with prevailing market conditions. Hence, a high degree of interdependence exists among competing firms, especially with regard to price and quantity of output.

Solution 2

Inter-dependence between firms - There exists a very high degree of mutual interdependence between the firms in an oligopoly market. The price and the quality decisions of a particular firm are dependent on the price and the quality decisions of the rival (other) firms. Hence, a firm must take into consideration the probable rival reactions, while formulating its own price and output decisions.
