Choose any 3 to answer. Each question is worth 10 points. Your response should be well written and content-rich, because you can take the time to research information and write a good answer. Please don’t type the question out on your submission, or it will result in an un-necessarily high plagiarism score. Just mark the letter of the question before each answer.
