Step-by-Step Solution:

Q_1_1.1:Time in the iTunes playlist. In the iTunes playlist, do you prefer to convert the time to seconds orminutes Give a reason for your answer.AnswerStep 1 of 1(a)We are asked to make choices to understand the time for iTunes playlist.Since the time is quantitative or numerical value and we would like to convert that into a formatthat will be understandable to the student.We have given two choices namely minutes and seconds.Let's take any song which run for 5 minutes and 20 seconds means song length is 5:20 minutes.We will first convert it into the seconds to find out the total song length in seconds, 5 : 20 minutes or 5 minutes and 20 seconds = 5 minutes + 20 seconds 1 minute = 60 seconds5 : 20 minutes or 5 minutes and 20 seconds = 5 × 60 seconds + 20 seconds = 320 seconds\nHence the song length is 320 seconds.Similarly, we will convert it into the minutes to find out the total song length in minutes, 5 : 20 minutes or 5 minutes and 20 seconds = 5 minutes + 20 seconds 1 second = 1 minute 60 15 : 20 minutes or 5 minutes and 20 seconds = 5 minutes + 20 × 60 minute = 5.3334 minutesHence the song length is 5.3334 minutes.Hence the choosing the method is based on you but generally we can prefer the time inseconds since there is no decimal points and no fractions or rounding.
