    Facts about online banking and telecommuting include all these except:

    • A.

      They heavily depend on using communications technologies.

    • B.

      They benefit from the ability to share information between companies and customers.

    • C.

      They create anti-social tendencies, which go hand in hand with more air pollution.

    • D.

      They are possible due to the expansion of decentralized computing.

    Correct Answer
    D. They are possible due to the expansion of decentralized computing.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "They are possible due to the expansion of decentralized computing." This statement is incorrect because online banking and telecommuting are possible due to the advancements in communications technologies, not decentralized computing. Online banking relies on secure networks and encryption to facilitate transactions, while telecommuting relies on internet connectivity and remote access technologies to enable employees to work from home. Decentralized computing, on the other hand, refers to the distribution of computing resources across multiple nodes or devices, which is not directly related to online banking and telecommuting.
