18 -- D is not a disadvantage!!
19 -- correct
so is it A?
I would say that B or C would be disadvantages.
B -- because there's still LOTS of information that's not available online anywhere, especially works still under copyright.
C -- because when you get over 10,000 results (or more!) for a search, it's often hard to know what to trust and what to discard as junk.
