Why would a firm choose to use one or more of the anticompetitive practices described in Regulating Anticompetitive Behavior?

Students have asked these similar questions
A product may be provided by a monopolist, but the market may be contestable. How can it be that a monopoly can be as efficient as a perfectly competitive market?
why do perfectly competitive firms maximize their profits by producing so that the price is equal to marginal cost, but monopolists maximize their profits by setting a price that is greater than marginal cost?
A (classic) monopolist faces a demand curve given by Q(P) = 100 – 0.25P and a continuously divisible product in a factory with cost function TC(Q) = 3.5Q^2 + 100Q + 600.a: Calculate the inverse demand curve P(Q), total revenue curve TR(Q), marginal revenue curveMR(Q), and marginal cost curve MC(Q).b: Carefully write out this firm’s profit maximization problem, using the particulars of thisproblem.c: Give the marginal condition (equation) that characterizes the solution to this problem. Solvethis condition for the firm’s optimal quantity Q*.d: Calculate the optimal price.e: Calculate the firm’s maximized profit.f: On a graph with quantity on the horizontal axis, neatly plot the marginal revenue curve andmarginal cost curve. Show Q* on your graph.g: Label areas on your graph using a, b, c, etc. and indicate the areas that correspond to totalrevenue, variable cost, and producer surplus at Q*.h: Calculate the firm’s producer surplus at Q*
