DISCUSSION: Custom made illustrations do the following:
- They are visual aids (paragraph 4)
- They remove unnecessary detail (lines 36-49)
- They are produced for a non-expert audience – judges and juries. (lines 41-42)
- The custom illustrations accompany and clarify oral testimony (paragraph 4)
- They are custom made for the situation at hand.
- CORRECT. This matches several of the factors. A schematic is:
* Custom made
* A visual aid
* Accompanying an oral presentation
Schematics probably also remove unnecessary detail, since the engineer is producing them to help their presentation. We don’t know if the audience is non-expert, but you don’t have to match all factors.
- Road maps are simplified, but avoiding verbal instructions is wrong. In a trial you get a diagram AND verbal instructions.
- Medical illustrations are useful to clarify legal testimony. Here the illustrations are used for investigation.
- Custom illustrations aren’t reproductions of textbooks. They are simplified diagrams. It sounds like this painting is an exact copy.
- Preliminary sketches are for the artist’s own use, and they probably aren’t simplified. Custom medical illustrations are for others, and they are simplified.
