I suspect the idea is to highlight what you should be actually _thinking_ about. Your final choices can't be dictated by anyone else because not only do they vary with conditions but with your personal willingness to take a risk.

As long as you give serious thought and maybe discussion to each point you are ahead of many that don't.
