Level B. The Semantic Problem

It is concerned with identity or a satisfactorily close approximation of the intended meaning of the sender and the interpretation of meaning by the receiver.

Level C. The Effectiveness Problem

It is concerned with the extent to which the received meaning affects the conduct of the receiver in the way desired by the sender.
