credit report that weighs on your credit score? Is it A) payment history, B) credit utilization,
or C) having a variety of different types of credit. NEW YORKER 4: Hm, I’ll say A. NEW YORKER 3: God, they’re all crucial. NEW YORKER 5: C, variety of different types of credit? NEW YORKER 6: Uh, it’s either A or C, I’m going to go
