I am trying to practice this case on my own (my first case on PrepLounge). Shall I assume that the interviewer will hand out the information under the "Comments" section to the candidate (either as part of the question, or as an answer to an early introductory question such as "Is there anything else I should be aware of?")?.

Thanks and regards!

No, the "Comments" are there to help the interviewer understand how the case is structured. Of course, it is possible that the interviewee asks questions that can be answered using the information listed in "Comments", and then it's fair game.

Good luck!

Will just give you a piece of advice here - don't practice cases on your own - it's completely useless unless its a market sizing case
