Poor Question Example

Reading time ~1 minute

You have created a Route 53 latency record set from your domain to a machine in Singapore and a similar record to a machine in Oregon. When a user located in India visits your domain he will be routed to:

A. Singapore B. Oregon C. Depends on the load on each machine D. Both, because 2 requests are made, 1 to each machine

The answer given is A which I believe is a poor answer because it assumes that the latency between India and Singapore will be the lowest. While this may often be the case it is not guaranteed and makes for a poor test question because there is additional information needed to make an accurate answer.
