You are creating a web form with this HTML:

<form action="sendOrder.jsp">
<input type="text" name="creditCard">
<input type="text" name="expirationDate">
<input type="submit">
</form>


Which HTTP method is used when sending this request from the browser?
A. GET
B. PUT
C. POST
D. SEND
E. FORM

Answer: A

I think the answer must be wrong, why don't use POST? There are two sensitive data! Am I right?

What does sensitive data have to do with regards to GET versus POST?

Besides, the question isn't asking what you should do, but what will happen.
