Step by Step Solution

Step1: Introduction.

Shrinkage is the loss of goods of occurrences including such shoplifting, vendor fraud, employee theft, and clerical error. The difference between the recorded inventory as well as the actual inventory is referred to as shrinkage.

Step2: Reason for the retailing firm's shrink likely to contribute mostly to its fixed costs or variable costs. 

Yes. They are consistent inputs. Because it was originally used to place items in orbit, it is now used to transfer personnel to and from orbit. It is classified as a fixed input because it will be used for space travel later on.
