Another Conflicting DEV 401 question...

Hiring managers at Universal containers would like a visual mechanism for determining review score outliers. Review scores are captured as a custom field on a custom Review object and can range from 1 to 10. Any review score that is >8 should be highlighted in green. Any review score that is < 4 should be highlighted in red.

  1. Use custom summary formulas
  2. Use matrix reports
  3. Use conditional highlighting
  4. Use charts

I think the correct answer is 3. but some are saying that 1. is the correct answer. Would someone please help clarify? Thanks.


It is 3. From the nature of question it looks more of a reporting.
