    The pH meter is accurate but it could be broken or poorly calibrated. Acid/base titration is accurate but painstaking work. Make your pick.

    pH meter is more accurate and precise, acid/base titration frequently produces inaccurate as well as imprecise results; you should review the terms precise and accurate.

    It's probably for an experiment...well, uhm....to determine which one is more accurate and precise (as insignificant as it sounds, it's something I had to do in gen. chem II lab).
