  • Use of the phrase “primarily used for”

    <div>I find that in many many of the explanations (and this is true throughout the portal, not just in this test), the phrase “primarily used for” is being used incorrectly, or at least in a misleading way – when in fact what should be said in those instances is something stronger explaining that the thing being spoken about is NOT used at all or can’t be used at all for the other option. </div>

    Here’s an example: In the question “A data engineer maintains multiple ETL jobs within AWS Glue. Among these jobs, there’s a specific non-urgent task that processes large amounts of data. The data engineer must optimize the cost of running this job without compromising its performance.”, the explanation for one of the wrong answers is this: “The option that says: <strong style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”>Use spot instances for the job is incorrect. Spot instances are primarily used for Amazon EC2 instances, not AWS Glue jobs.”

    By saying that spot instances are <b style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”>primarily used for EC2 and not for Glue Jobs, it gives the false impression that Spot Instances can (possibly) be used in Glue Jobs. A better clearer explanation would simply say “Spot instances cannot be used for Glue Jobs”.

    I find this in a significant number of explanations and I think it’s confusing to write it this way.
