@lilsweetangel,
Can you give the answers you have so far? If you show some effort others are more likely to help, otherwise they feel like they are being asked to basically do your homework for you. If you elaborate a bit many will be willing to help you do the homework.

For example, the last question is asking for your personal opinion. How are we supposed to answer what your personal opinion is? Why not let us know your thoughts on each, what you aren't quite sure of and we can try helping you get there?

@Robert Gentel,
First off,the factor i would use to consider when choosing an operating system for my staff operations and business needs. To have a meeting to see what the employee would like to use on the computer for work related purpose.
2. After they decide which operating system work best for desktop and laptops on which program will work on the software.
3. Now i will decide how much we would have to spent on the operating system for all the new and old staff.

@lilsweetangel,
Those are a good start. Cost, networkability, what programs are available are very basic starting points. What other companies that communicate with you can also influence things, for example if everyone uses Microsoft formats that is a contributing factor.

Some things I find important in an operating system:

1) Ability to run the software that is needed
2) Updates and security patches
3) Ability to connect to networks
4) Provide a file system
5) Provide maintenance tools for the operating system's health

Your teacher may be looking for something else though, so try to remember specific things the class covered.

What do you think about the other questions?

The first question is what does your company do that they would use software for? It could be restated as what software is most critical to what the company does.
A print shop or graphic design house would need graphics software and the most prevalent ones run on the Mac OS.
If your company is a consultant company that runs internet websites then Apache is probably the most used software and Linux might be the best choice.
If your company needs to be able to share standard business documents with other companies than Microsoft Office may be the dominant software making Vista or another MSft OS the best choice.
