What does "slow down in order" means exactly?

Post by tearsinrain » Mon Jun 01, 2020 9:23 am

First of all, new to the forum, and hello everyone!
So what confuses me lately is "slow down in order". I'm not sure what it means:
a. The number of orders of a company will fall instead of increasing. The total number of orders that the company has will shrink.
b. The number of orders will continue to rise but at a slower speed.
Which one of these 2 options is the real meaning of "slowdown in order"?
Thanks in advance!

Do you mean “a slowdown in orders”? (Plural, with s)

Then the answer is: a
