    Correct Answer
    D. Fuel efficiency
    Explanation
    A fighter jet must possess speed, maneuverability, and size relative to other fighter jets in order to effectively carry out its missions. These qualities allow the jet to quickly reach its target, outmaneuver enemy aircraft, and operate effectively in combat situations. However, fuel efficiency is not a crucial quality for a fighter jet as it is designed for short bursts of high-speed flight and combat maneuvers rather than long-range endurance.

These early fighter jets were designed and built during the early 20th century, when aircraft technology was still in its infancy.

Despite their low speed, these fighter jets played a crucial role in the development of military aviation and paved the way for the advanced fighter jets we have today.
