You’ve been using your networked laser printer for a few months without a problem, but now you’d like to use a different tray than your usual paper source. However, you don’t see any options on the printer menu for the other paper tray. Which of these would be the most likely cause of this?
A) Your word processing program doesn’t work with multi-tray printers
B) You are using an incorrect printer driver
C) The printer’s paper tray is damaged
D) The network connection to the printer doesn’t support printing from other trays
E) The printer won’t allow you to use Comic Sans
