Information can be evaluated using which of the following characteristics?
D. All of the above.
E. A & C above.
I chose D because it seems that one would want all of those characteristics for a good piece of info. I'm not 100 % sure about repeatability, though.
Scientific information from experiments needs to be repeatable. If three scientists do the same experiment, but find different answers, the research of all of them is questionable.
I agree that D is the best answer.
Thank you! I was wondering if it was a trick question!
Another example occurred to me. If, in an election year, one poll shows Candidate A ahead and another poll shows Candidate B ahead, neither poll is reliable because they aren't repeatable.
Ah yes that does make sense. Thank you!
