    Gradients Vs. Blends

    Mark Boggs

      I am going to school for commercial art and I am in a vector design class learning to use Illustrator.  I am required to do the lessons in "Adobe Illustrator classroom in a book".  I also am required to answer several questions when turning this lesson in.  I have run into a stumbling block.  I can't find the answer anywhere in the text.  I'm wondering if someone could help me out with this.  The question is as follows.  When might you want to apply a gradient instead of a blend, and vice versa?  Now it's not in the book and I'm thinking this is one of those questions that has a million and one different answers.  Kind of like why would you want to drive the pickup truck over the minivan or something.  Any help or direction would be appreciated.
