answer

Continue to ask the four questions for each Action in the sequence. Work out what the user will do and how the sytem will respond. If you can analyse B and C, you will find that Actions D to I are similar.

Action J: Think about the first question. Will the user even know they need to press the transmit button? Isn't it likely that the user will reach closure after Action I?
