Not sure if this is the right exchange for this question. But you could definitely answer it. Note professor said this was “wrong” on their quiz.
Question: Identify a daily activity that can be speed up with parallelization.
My answer: People driving their own car vs people taking a bus. My reasoning: When people all take a bus they have to wait for all the destinations before theirs to pass. When people drive a car they go directly to their destination.
The professor said this isn’t a good example of a serial processor made parallel. I’m not convinced. Where am I wrong? I plan to argue my case..
