Please check my answer thank you very much.

You can use trick sentences or rhymes as mnemonic devices to recall information. For example, you can recall this rhyme: “In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue.” The rhyming of “2” and “blue” should help you remember that Columbus arrived in the New World in 1492.
Or you can use the sentence “Every good boy does fine” to remember the notes of the treble clef in music notation. Simply name the first letter of each word in the “nonsense sentence” to remember E,G,B,D, and F—in that order. You can also recall information by using acronyms. An acronym condenses information into an abbreviation expressed as a set of capital letters. For example, WHO stands for the World Health Organization. To
recall the names of the Great Lakes, you can associate the names of the lakes with the acronym HOMES to remember Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, and Superior.

Which of the following best expresses the main idea of this paragraph?

A. Mnemonic devices are silly sentences while acronyms are abbreviations.

B. You can use mnemonic devices to recall information.

C. Mnemonic devices are usually rhymes while acronyms require definitions.

D. Acronyms are easier to recall than mnemonic devices, but both are useful.
