We can decided which method of deprecation is best on the basis of usefulness (benefits) provided by the asset.
When we prefer SLM:-
we preferred SLM where the equal amount of  benefit is derived from the asset through the useful life of the asset. e.g A room's capacity of storing the goods remain same in each year weather old or new.
When we prefer DBM:-
we preferred DBM where resulting benefit from the asset diminishing (decreasing) year by year.
