    Help please!!
    When I click on the Question /Answers, it takes me to a new page where it says;
    “webpage cannot be found.
    Most likely causes:
    •There might be a typing error in the address.
    •If you clicked on a link, it may be out of date.”

      Hi jessieer88,

      If the examiner didn’t ask for the disadvantages, you’d only be wasting your precious time by mentioning them plus you’d not be awarded any marks for some thing that wasn’t the requirement of the question.
