    I have a question... The topic was about technology and you wrote only about Internet... Is it fine to do so in exam?

  4. @SAN..

    It is more of an assumption that technology would refer to Internet for research purposes. Especially with the fact that majority people prefer to use 'Google' for any type of search, related to anything - Ebooks, Music, Relevant articles, Videos... Everything!

    "Information is provided at the speed of the Internet, i.e. nanoseconds."

    Since the internet provides information in nanoseconds (for example Google, it gives results in 0.20 seconds), this line would be correct in that context. :)

    All the best
