Options a and c are correct.

Attended automations require a user in front of the machine to kick them off. Thus, option c is correct. Unattended robots do not require a human present.

Since a user is in front of the computer when the robot executes, security rights of the robot cannot be hidden or isolated from the user. A user with lower rights could commandeer an attended robot with elevated rights at any time, giving the user rights they otherwise would not have. Thus, there is a lack of security rights isolation with an attended UiPath robot.

This deals with Associate exam objective 1.1, to identify and describe the different types of robots be it attended or unattended
