    • D.

      Remote Access

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Direct Access
    C. Import and copy
    Explanation
    ACL (Audit Command Language) uses two methods to access data: Direct Access and Import and copy.

    Direct Access refers to the ability to directly access data from its original source, such as a database or file system, without the need for any intermediate steps. This method allows users to query and analyze data in real-time.

    Import and copy, on the other hand, involves importing data from external sources into ACL for analysis. This method requires users to first extract the data from its original source, such as a spreadsheet or database, and then import it into ACL.

    These two methods provide flexibility and options for accessing and analyzing data in ACL, depending on the specific requirements and sources of the data.
