When adding a new business asset and choosing the option to spread the deduction over several years, what MARCS convention does TurboTax apply?

Lost all previous year TurboTax files and hard copies of final returns. Trying to rebuild for 2016. When adding business assets, TurboTax asks me what MARCS convention I used in previous tax years. I have one asset purchased 6/8/15 and one from 11/26/14. If I originally used Turbotax and told it to spread the deduction out over several years, would it have applied mid-quarter to the June purchase and half-year to the November purchase or something else?

No, just the opposite. Assuming no other assets were purchased during the year, and these assets are not real property the convention for the asset purchased 6/15/2015 would be half-year , and the asset purchased 11/26/2014 would be mid-quarter .
