    Explanation
    The correct answer is Remote Technician. The reason is that a Remote Technician is responsible for providing technical support and troubleshooting services remotely, which often requires the use of laptops and personal devices to connect to and control the devices of the customers. On the other hand, an IT Technician, Depot Technician, and A+ Essentials may also involve working with computers and devices, but they do not specifically emphasize the use of laptops and personal devices as much as a Remote Technician does.

    Correct Answer
    C. Depot Technician
    Explanation
    Depot Technicians are responsible for repairing and maintaining equipment in a designated location, such as a depot or warehouse. Unlike Remote Technicians or IT Technicians who may interact with customers directly, Depot Technicians typically work behind the scenes and have minimal customer interactions. Therefore, the Depot Technician exam is suitable for positions that usually have little customer interactions.
