Even though the terms were used in several years, you’ll see if you closely examine the questions and options above that they were used in completely different contexts. To distinguish the questions, the answer options were changed and various scenarios and circumstances were offered in each case.

Every year, the questions remain original and fresh due to differences in the terms’ application and the variety of possible answers. But answering these questions should get much easier for you if you have carefully gone over the previous questions and know exactly what the terms mean. Having familiarity with previous exam questions might help you identify trends and foresee future question formats, which will give you an advantage.
