    Correct Answer
    B. Wikis
    Explanation
    Wikis are the best Web 2.0 tool for collaboration because they allow multiple users to create, edit, and manage content in a collaborative manner. With wikis, users can easily contribute and share information, making it an effective tool for group projects, knowledge sharing, and team collaboration. Unlike blogs or podcasts, wikis provide a platform for ongoing collaboration and allow users to collectively build and refine content over time. RSS, on the other hand, is a tool used for content syndication and does not offer the same level of collaboration as wikis.

While Web 2.0 platforms have provided opportunities for individuals to share and create content, the credibility and accuracy of that information can vary.
