      D. They should be tailored to the job being applied for.

    Correct Answer
    A. A. They are one and the same as CVs
    Explanation
    Resumes and CVs are not the same thing. While they both provide information about a person's education, work experience, and skills, there are some key differences between them. Resumes are typically shorter, usually only one or two pages, and are more commonly used in the United States. CVs, on the other hand, are longer and more detailed, often including publications, research projects, and teaching experience. CVs are more commonly used in academic and research fields. Therefore, the statement that resumes and CVs are one and the same is incorrect.
