The Attempt at a Solution


Im assuming that both A and D should be as damped as possible, so its more of a question as to which one has a shorter damping time and/or which one objectively benefits the most from it. Thanks.

I would ask myself: which one, if any, would benefit from being overdamped.

It would be my understanding that both A and D would benefit from being over damped. It is my teacher's opinion (justified or not); however, that one is a better answer. Im trying to figure out which one that is.
