Question 9:

Why could you not use an elastic measuring tape to measure distance? What would be some of the problems you would meet in telling someone about a distance you measured with an elastic tape?

Answer:

Since the tape is stretchable, its will show the same measurements for different lengths. Therefore we cannot use it as measuring tape. While measuring a distance, we need to tell someone how much tape has been stretched which is difficult to measure. It leads to incorrect measurements.
