Can someone please clarify this question? (number 14)
The explanation of why the Cost Explorer is incorrect, is out of context:
“<strong style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”>AWS Cost Explorer is incorrect because this is just a tool that enables you to view and analyze your costs and usage but not at a granular level like the AWS Cost and Usage report. It also does not provide a way to load your cost and usage information into Amazon Athena, Amazon Redshift, AWS QuickSight, or a tool of your choice.”
Also, a few questions up, I find this definition of Cost Explorer (second image)

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, and apologies for the late response.
To clarify, AWS offers two services to help you manage and analyze your AWS usage and costs: AWS Cost Explorer and AWS Cost and Usage Report. AWS Cost Explorer is a cost management tool that enables you to visualize and analyze your AWS spending and usage. With Cost Explorer, you can track your Amazon EC2 Reserved Instance (RI) usage and view the discounted RI rate that was charged to your resources. In contrast, AWS Cost and Usage Report provides a detailed breakdown of your AWS costs and usage, including usage data and pricing information, which can be downloaded in CSV. Our team will review this item and make necessary improvements to enhance its clarity so that it becomes clearer and more understandable for our students.
You can read more on the official documentation of AWS Cost Explorer and AWS Cost and Usage Report:
