kalps I think the last choice is the most relevant answer although I would not necessarily say that it is the only true answer.
mtcfa The last choice is true by definition.
Analizer Materiality has a lot to do with "importance". None of the other answer choices has that word. Hence it is correct
TammTamm Because it would have the greatest effect if the information was given to the public.
AUAU Reasonable investors considered importance.
Gooner7 'materiality' has nothing to do with who divulges info/how it was attained. it has to do with the content of the info itself
raffrobb Material is relevant to the usefulness and impact on an investment decision rather than how acquired. Seems more the nature information and how pertinent or influential on a decision. Content seems to be the operative word, as pointed out by Gooner7.
