    12. The question is ambiguous. "Beneficial" for whom or for what purpose? All of those answers could fit, depending upon the meaning of the question.

    13. D. is probably the best answer. But why are you guessing?

  • Technology -

    All Right, I'll ask my teacher for number 12. For number 13, I was guessing because most of the questions have answers directly from the book; this one didn't.

    Thank you so much

    Thanks for posting your text's definitions. They put the question in context and also make the answer clear. Which answer do you think best fits?

  • Technology -

    I would say financial.

  • Technology -

    I disagree. It can't be financial because there's nothing in the question that implies money or profit.

  • Technology -

    market

  • Technology -

    Yes. Market is right.

    The key words are:

    "These criteria are derived from studying what the user expects from the device or system. "
