Design Decisions - Why or just choice?

Hello folks

What I really need to describe the document design decisions:
1. What do I choose to use?
2. What the motivations that led me to use?
3. What options I considered?
All three? or just 1 and 2?

I have the impression that in the document design decisions I have to put options 1 and 2. Option 3 would only answer the questions in part 3 certification.

I answered #3 if I did something that could be controversial. Of if I thought the exam grader might have thought I didn't know about it. For example, "I didn't use clustering here because XXXX".

I think I wrote too much in part 2 though because I found myself repeating a lot of what I wrote in part #3. But that's ok. It just meant I was well prepared!
