Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Says here, to use alternating it should be of the for 1^(n+1) or 1^n

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. The point is there are many test and any one of them may be inconclusive and you may have to use another one in conjunction with it. Flexibility is needed on your part.
