The degenerate elliptic equation $\lambda \Delta_p u +u^{q-1}(1-u^r)=0$ with zero Dirichlet boundary condition, where $\lambda$ is a positive parameter, $2<p<q$ and $r>0$, is studied in three aspects: existence of maximal solution, $\lambda$-dependence of maximal solution and multiplicity of solutions.
