5. Currency- This is current due to the nature of the potential terrorist coming into Singapore and planning to wreak havoc

5.1. Relevance- This is relevant to the topic because it gives us some motive as to why the terrorist wants to bomb Singapore

5.1.1. Author- CNA, since CNA is a news channel in Singapore, I would trust that it is credible and reliable

5.1.1.1. Accuracy- There were no typographical errors and the information was supported by pictures and articles

5.1.1.1.1. Purpose- This information serves to teach us about the tense relationship between Singapore and Indonesia

6. Indonesia have a high demand for spices from different countries.

7. Since this bombing has happened before, the potential threat of another bombing happening again shows that Singapore is a vulnerable country

7.1. We must maintain a good relationship between the two countries. One example is Singapore always sending their support towards Indonesia when there was natural disasters.

8. This outside plan of terrorism was chosen due to the currency. The act was also chosen at a place with large crowd .Therefore, the terrorist is most likely to attack place with a crowd .

9. Outside SG C- Indonesia ,2017 R - it is also a place where there will be large human traffic (common location a terrorist would go) A- well known SG news company A - It is reliable as it is works with the high authority P- Is to cause a uproar as there was a lot of death and injury

10. 3) We have concluded that the 3 other stations are not the locations of the bomb as it has tight security (Dhoby Ghaut), low influx of civilians (Jurong East/Outram Park). With the evidences we collated previously, it is all targeting Chinatown, specifically at the Chinatown Food Street. Tourist Statistics also included Chinatown as one of the top 3 tourist location. Relating to the past terrorism attacks, we can tell that the terrorists are aiming at places with large crowds, causing large impacts. There were also clues about the 50cents feast, implicating that locals and tourist would visit Chinatown Food Street, resulting in large crowd at that area, making it a possible location for the terrorists to plant a bomb there. Relating to previous Spices clue, the 50cents feast are Hokkien food which makes use of spices in most of their dish, allowing us to deduce that the location of the bomb is in Chinatown Food Street.

10.1. 4) Our conclusion for the possible location of the bomb is Chinatown due to the high influx of people and also due to the number of events which are located near Chinatown such as Vegan street food crawl and The 50cent Feast. It is more likely to be at the Chinatown Food Street, as there is the 50cent feast (hokkien food), the spices clue also leads us to this location.
