Like all other keys on a computer keyboard, the delete key when pressed will access the layer of electrical contacts formed directly onto a circuit board. The conducting material bridges the contacts, completes a switch, and triggers the specific circuit for the delete key.

That circuit performs the task of negating the underlined action, so if you had typed RED and then wanted to change that to BLUE, you would highlight RED press delete and the circuit would undo the typing of R E D.

The question should ask 'AT the -----------' not 'TO the' otherwise answer may be 'start' and not 'Right'
