The answer is D. A logical test and value if true, value if test is false plus formatting options are the required arguements in an IF function. One of the more practical and popular actions in Excel is the IF function. Users can tell Excel to test a condition and if the condition has not been met then to return to a different value.

The IF function has 3 different arguments. For example, you can have Excel perform a logical function which searches for a particular condition and changes to one value if the data test was found to be true and another if the test found the data to be false.    #### M. Krasinski

The IF function is one of the more popular and practical tasks in Excel. You use an IF statement to tell Excel to test a condition and to return another value if the condition is not met. The IF function is one of Excel's logical functions that evaluates a certain condition and returns the value you specify if the conditions are true, and another value if the condition is false.

The IF function has three arguments. The logical test, for example, is of a value of the logical expression that can be true or false. In this argument, specify text value, date, number, or comparison operator.    Logical test and value if true, value if test is false plus formatting options    #### John Smith
