Question 1

Why do we use external stylesheets instead of inline or embedded styles?

We use CSS to design web pages because it can be used to design multiple pages at a time. It saves a lot of time, and there are more style options that HTML isn't capable of.

Question 2

What is the difference between SSH and FTP and why do we use each?

SSH is a secure shell to for networks to communicate between two computers. It is secure. For sensitive data, it is the preferred method of transmission as it has encryption. FTP is older, is not secure, and it transters files from a remote location to a local computer, or from local computer to remote location. It is easier to use as you don't have to run it from a terminal, but you pay the price with security risks.
