Doubts about the Answer of Question 2 in the Quiz Regarding the Ability of Multiple Consumers to Read from the Same Partition

The answer indicates that multiple consumers can’t read from the same partition. However, what I understood from the explanation is that they indeed can unless they are members of the same consumer group. Am I missing something here?

Hi Islam,
Yes, multiple consumers can read from the same partition if they are from different consumer groups. The question assumes that those consumers are from the same group, but it should have been mentioned.
