    expression: where the opportunity comes from

    Hello

    I have to write an assignment and there is one question which I do not understand ; it's the English.

    What does it mean when I am asked to "..explain where the potential opportunity for the "internet of things" comes from."

    Does it mean: explain what the opportunities are?

    Thanks for your help

    We don't help with assignments, but since you're not asking for help on the assignment itself per se, I think it's okay to answer your question. If not, a moderator may choose to delete my reply. (Mods: feel free to delete if you think I'm violating a taboo).

    It's asking you to explain what makes the 'internet of things' a possibility. What is it that makes the concept viable?

    Closer to say it is asking for the source or origin of the opportunities. We could list tens of thousands of opportunities to be found on the Internet, but what causes this phenomenon? What process(es) is responsible?
