A website has been designed to help travelers find accommodations at more reasonable rates than the hotels’ websites. To offer discounted rates, operators of the discount website purchase large blocks of rooms at discounted rates on a daily basis. They then sell these rooms to individuals for a profit to them but at a discount to the consumer. Hotels are losing money as a result of this.

To discourage the operators of this website from undercutting their prices, it would be best if the hotel chains restricted


The entities that may purchase rooms at discounted rates


The use of the rooms to those who originally purchased them


The dates that these hotel rooms may be purchased as blocks


The time frame in which blocks of rooms may be redeemed


The number of cities in which blocks of rooms can be purchased at discounted rates
