OG10 Q 160

8 Answer(s)

(B) by suggesting the reduction of software prices to decrease the incentive for pirating, and still others call


(C) suggest the reduction of software prices for decreasing the incentive for pirating, and still others call


(D) suggest the reduction of software prices to decrease the incentive for pirating, and still others by calling
