Why don't you offer a "None of the above" option as an answer ?
IMHO, the biggest remaining advantages of on-prem computing are a) regulatory compliance, because your favorite public cloud can't be in every country that is going to come up with a data residency requirement b) latency/availability for specific use cases like industrial control solutions and c) cost in a few very specific scenarios that don't mesh too well with cloud pricing models. But for the average case I very much believe that on-prem is neither more secure nor more reliable, and doesn't give you more control over anything useful.
