    That would make a good homework question...

    You might find it easier to think of answers to that question if you consider it in context. You could start by thinking of what those tools actually do. What makes them useful? Are there situations where their indications could be confusing?

    It is not clear to me whether you are only comparing the logic probe and the DMM to each other, or looking at their advantages and disadvantages more generally. If the latter, it might also help you to compare them to some alternatives. For instance,would it be possible to do anything at all without any test equipment? Then, would it be easier, or more difficult if you had other instruments, such as an oscilloscope? Can you think of other equipment that might be used?

    A logic probe would hardly measure anything, just detect.
