  • 'wh' questions refer to questions containing the words who, what, where, when, why, which and how. Yes/no questions refer to those where the answer is yes or no.
  • Capabilities refers to the ability of members of the group to participate in the arrangements, and covers such limitations as time, physical demands, cost, cultural and/or religious prohibitions, family or other commitments.
