Scenario : I am working on a scenario where there are set of tasks,say 3 tasks in series, in a workflow and each task has to be completed by 3 different users. These 3 different users belong to 3 different groups

Clarification Required:   Just wanted to know if my understanding is correct as stated below:

a) Multi Instance (Loop Cardinality) can be used for parallel and sequential(series) tasks but for a set of users which are in same group only. For eg.
———————————————————————-
    <userTask id="enterCommentsTask" name="Enter Comments by Author" >
     <documentation>
        Enter Comments which requires verification
      </documentation>
      <potentialOwner>
        <resourceAssignmentExpression>
          <formalExpression>author</formalExpression>
        </resourceAssignmentExpression>
      </potentialOwner>
     <multiInstanceLoopCharacteristics isSequential="false">
     <loopCardinality>4</loopCardinality>
     </multiInstanceLoopCharacteristics>
    </userTask>
——————————————————————-


b)Parallel Gateway is used when tasks is to be executed by set of users which belong to different groups

Is my understanding a) and b) are correct?
