This is the sentence
One ______ of public transport is its unreliability.
A. benefit
B. drawback
C. harm
D. disadvantage


They are very similar, but there can be a slight variation between them.

A drawback limits your ability as it now stands. You don't remain as you are, but are taken back. So a drawback of public transport is that it pulls you back from your ability to travel as you wish.

A disadvantage can be seen as removing an advantage you had, or prevents you from having an advantage. Another way to think of it is that with an advantage, you go beyond your current state to a better one, but a disadvantage prevents you from going beyond where you now are. So with transportation, a disadvantage would be that you can not go beyond public transport. You are not permitted to travel in your own vehicle.

Thank you Dancing So which answer I should choose?
