    Design it so it doesn't fall apart but isn't too heavy to move, and can operate in a wide range of speeds, loads and other conditions.

    You chose the WORST answer as best answer. In fact, the answer you chose as best isn't even TRUE. All of those factors are required for it to operate AT ALL.
