Default Question 6

It seems that at least two of the answers could be correct for question 6. I must be misinterpreting the words "can be" differently.

To me, "Can be" implies that there are some circumstances in which the equivalency is true as opposed to the equivalency being true in all circumstances.

Could someone clarify?
