I think how it works is more important than how it looks it needs to be able to take on potential disasters

In my opinion, depending on what it is, either one can matter more. Say if you had a desk, you would want it to be sturdy not look really nice. but in the other hand if you had a painting, you wouldn't want it to be strong, you would want it to look good.

In my opinion, if something works good well, that's fine. If something looks good, that's fine as well. To me, it doesn't really matter as long as whatever it is works as what it is.

In mu opinion, how well works is more important than how it looks. However, this varies depending on what it is. For example, I have a macbook. It's an old one, but it works pretty well However, for other items I would prefer for it to look nice.

I think that how it works is better than the appearance. It would be most important because it would actually solve the problem that they were really working on.

I think it works better than it appears to. Its appearance doesn't look like much but it can do a lot more. It's able to begin cleaning E. Coli from the rivers and it's usable for a living space.

I think that both are very important, but it honestly depends on what it is. Some things, like statues or paintings, don't do anything physically, but make the viewer think mentally. Other things (like the island) are meant to physically do things, and it matters more what they do than how they look.

I think that it depends more on how well it works then how well it looks. I mean if you have a boat that has tons of fancy designs and flowers and things on it you might think "Wow that looks great!" But then you will get in the boat and all the decoration will make it sink. So just because something looks good doesn't mean it will work good. Which is why I think it is more important if something actually works then if it looks nice.

I say that how it works is what I like. For example, you could have a fishing rod that looks like a stick. As long as it catches fish, you can have a good dinner. You could also have a fishing rod that looks like a masterpiece, but won't catch fish.

You'll go hungry because you didn't catch any fish.
