Question 3, I picked c.

Question 10, I picked b.

Hello again,

Actually, I had the same answers for these three questions. However, after re-checking question #10, I believe the best answer is 'c) BIOSIS Previews', as it features full-text articles on biomedical research, while Health Source articles are more related to general health topics (e.g., exercise and nutrition). So, my final answers would be:
2) b
3) c
10) c

Hope this helps!

Good morning,

I made a mistake.
For question 3, I picked d which is abi/inform. Look at that description and tell me what you think.
Hello again,

I believe 'c) Points of View Reference Center' is the answer for question #3. This database provides articles that reference viewpoints on the subject of workplace discrimination, whereas ABI Inform provides info on the operations of business, referencing topics such as economics, management, marketing, and information technology.

Hope this helps!.
