This multiple-choice question is suitable for Accounting KS5 classes.

The answer is 3

  1. Not correct – continuous improvement should have avoided the fault being caused in the first place or is not part of the design mix.
  2. Not correct – aesthetics is how a product looks rather than how it works.
  3. Correct – Definition of design mix e.g. the way in which function, aesthetics and economic manufacture are combined in the overall design.  A car with faulty doors is not working properly/safe.  Therefore it does not fulfil its design function and is not fit for purpose.
  4. Not correct – efficiency is not part of the design mix.
