5. Online Investigations - [ What's This? ] [Top]

Pizza restaurants are not all the same. They offer different menus, services, and prices. Use the Internet to look up two different pizza restaurants in your area, or better yet, pretend that you are visiting New York City in the United States for a week, and you want to find out what restaurants are available in the area. Check on prices, variety of menu items, delivery, and working hours of each place and compare.
