    You can answer all of the above questions by googling the qestions' key words in the questions. And you'll learn a lot by doing so.

    If you don't understand the vocabulary (terms) used in the questions, you might have trouble. So, you might have to look up the word "efficacy," for example, by googling "efficacy" and "merriam," which will take you to the relevant entry at the Merriam Webster Dictionary.
