  1. Percentiles are based on the characteristics of the 45 scenarios. The number of adapted parameters is independent of the number of times an adapted parameter is used in a particular scenario. For example, in Table 4, the parameter "[S2]" is used 5 times, but counts as only 1 adapted parameter. The numbers of sentences and words in each scenario are different ways of quantifying the lengths and heterogeneity of the scenarios. Each scenario fits on a single page.
