Correct Answer: 

B) Software that runs on hardware developed by a different company

. . .

Third party software refers to programs that are developed by companies other than the company that developed the computer's operating system.  Therefore, any iPad or MacBook applications that are not developed by Apple are considered third party applications. Likewise, any Windows programs developed by companies other than Microsoft are called third party programs. Since most programs are developed by companies other than Apple and Microsoft, third party applications make up the majority of software programs.
