Quiz - Blocks for Asynchronous tasks

A(n) ............. task executes in order, and the rest of the code waits for it to finish before proceeding. A(n) ............ task executes in parallel, and the rest of the code continues while the task is doing its work.

Can't seem to be getting these right - I would have thought the questions would be talking about atomic and nonatomic?

I also tried looking at single threaded and multi threaded but i'm assuming those are the same as atomic and nonatomic

Bit confused :/

One of the answers is right in the title of your post. Also, there is a reason they put the n in parenthesis, without it the question wouldn't be grammatically correct.

Asynchronous is one, but thats not going to be the same for the other?
