    Sorry, I don't know anything about this but I thought I would reply so you don't feel unloved What kind of devices do you know about? Is there any way you can use what you know to work out the answers to a couple of those?

    lol. i hate this! its like asking us to become olympic champions iwth a broken leg! (ok, bad example, but you get the point)

    ok, my guesses were:

    1.) elec bill - dot matrix printer coz its sufficient in just printing basic text and numbers with a combination of fonts. This will be adequate as coloured or detailed images etc are not needed, aswell as this device being cost efficient for the purpose.

    2.) producing school newsletters - a modern laser printer would be ideal for this because high printing quality, clear images and good use of tones and shades is important for such a task. Therefore using a laser printer would fulfil this; especially as the glossy paper needs to be printed double sided.

    3.) Developing Programs - A standard inkjet printer. High precision printing is not a necessity. Therefore this would be adequate as it would allow sufficient printing of the program designs, layout and codes. Whether it be black and white or in colour format. (optional)

    4.) Designing A Car - Reccommend a laser printer. Especially if the printout would be viewed by potential customers, high printing quality with maximum visibility and tone/shading quality is essential.

    5.) Notifying The Operator That The Printer Needs Printer - A very basic dot matrix printer or even a daisy wheel would be sufficient for this. Especially as quality of font, size and printout quality is not important.

    6.) producing up to date library catalogues to be sent out to each library branch - laser printer - similar reasons as to number 4.) but even more so as the intention is to be selling goods as with the car.

    these are very rough answers, and quickly jotted down, but i couldnt think of mych to say!

    It might be worth considering volume and print speeds.

    Designing a car needs high quality printout but isn't a particularly high speed process - producing a few thousand electricity bills is.

    Also I think you *might* have the wrong end of the stick about what a library catalogue is - it's a list of what books are in each library - a database printout basically, it's not usually something shown to the library users but something used by library staff (or for archives as most libraries have access to other library catalogues through their database systems).

    Also consider cost - a laser colour printer might well be out of a schools budget - especially if they're going to use it to print out 1000 or so copies of a high quality double sides newsletter...We've got a top notch colour printer here at work and 1000 pages takes about 5 hours to print out - single sided...and requires being refilled with paper at least once.

    I doubt your answers will be marked right or wrong - it's the reasoning behind them that matters.
