Numerous theories have been developed by behavioral scientists about how management can motivate employees. These theories assist managers in their understanding of why an individual chooses to work, why he may continue to work for a firm for a considerable amount of time, and how to boost the morale of a worker and motivate him to produce at his level or highest possible level. One of the theories is Alderfer's ERG theory. Which of the following is not true about Alderfer's ERG theory?
[A]Alderfer proposed a condensed version of Maslow's Need Hierarchy theory with only three groups of core needs.viz., existence, relatedness and growth
[B]The existence needs are related to Maslow’s physiological and safety needs
[C]The relatedness needs are the desire to establish and maintain interpersonal relationships
[D]ERG theory assumes a rigid hierarchy where a lower level need must be substantially gratified before one can move on
