Part a "Determining the age at which a particular medical test is recommended" seems like an information retrieval problem not a learning or design problem. Doctors have already decided when to recommend a test.

Perhaps it should read: "Determining the age at which a particular medical test should be recommended or performed" to make it a learning problem.
