Flowcharts are used to give detailed explanation on the processes or steps involved in a program. Originally designed to aid explanation of a process, the chart has now gone as far as being used for engineering purposes. What do you know about Flowchart? Let our quiz help you answer that!

### What symbol indicates a step that organizes a list of items into a sequence or sets based on some pre-determined criteria?

• A.

Sort

• B.

Subroutine

• C.

Manual Loop

• D.

Loop Limit

A. Sort
Explanation
The correct answer is "Sort." The sort symbol is used to organize a list of items into a sequence or sets based on some pre-determined criteria. This symbol is commonly used in programming and data analysis to arrange data in a specific order, such as ascending or descending. By using the sort symbol, the list of items can be rearranged in a systematic way, making it easier to analyze and work with the data.

### What symbol indicates a sequence of actions that perform a specific task embedded within a larger process?

• A.

Sort

• B.

Subroutine

• C.

Manual Loop

• D.

Loop Limit

B. Subroutine
Explanation
A subroutine is a symbol that indicates a sequence of actions that perform a specific task embedded within a larger process. It is a reusable piece of code that can be called multiple times from different parts of a program. By using subroutines, the larger process can be divided into smaller, more manageable tasks, making the code more organized and easier to understand.

### What symbol indicates a sequence of commands that will continue to repeat until stopped manually?

• A.

Sort

• B.

Subroutine

• C.

Manual Loop

• D.

Loop Limit

C. Manual Loop
Explanation
A manual loop is a symbol that indicates a sequence of commands that will continue to repeat until stopped manually. This means that the loop will keep executing the commands indefinitely until someone intervenes and stops it.

### What symbol indicates the point at which a loop should stop?

• A.

Sort

• B.

Subroutine

• C.

Manual Loop

• D.

Loop Limit

D. Loop Limit
Explanation
The symbol that indicates the point at which a loop should stop is called the "Loop Limit". This symbol is used to define the condition that determines when the loop should terminate. It sets a boundary or limit for the number of times the loop should iterate. Once this limit is reached, the loop will stop executing and the program will continue with the next set of instructions.

### What symbol indicates a delay in the process?

• A.

Delay

• B.

Stored Data

• C.

Database

• D.

Internal storage

A. Delay
Explanation
A delay in the process is typically indicated by a symbol that represents a pause or a waiting period. This symbol is commonly used in flowcharts or process diagrams to show that there is a temporary halt in the progression of the process. It signifies that the process cannot move forward until a certain condition is met or a certain event occurs. The symbol visually represents the concept of delay and helps to convey this information to the reader or user of the diagram.

### What symbol indicates a step where data gets stored?

• A.

Delay

• B.

Stored Data

• C.

Database

• D.

Internal Storage

B. Stored Data
Explanation
The symbol that indicates a step where data gets stored is "Stored Data". This symbol represents the process or action of storing data in a system or device. It signifies that the data is being saved or retained for future use or reference. It is a common symbol used in flowcharts or diagrams to depict the storage of data during a particular step or stage of a process.

### What symbol indicates a list of information with a standard structure that allows for searching and sorting?

• A.

Delay

• B.

Stored Data

• C.

Database

• D.

Internal Storage

C. Database
Explanation
A database is a symbol that indicates a list of information with a standard structure that allows for searching and sorting. Databases are designed to store and manage large amounts of data in an organized and efficient manner. They provide a structured way to store and retrieve data, allowing for easy access, manipulation, and analysis of information. With the use of database management systems, users can perform various operations on the data, such as searching for specific information, sorting data based on different criteria, and generating reports.

### What symbol indicates that information was stored in memory during a program, used in software design flowcharts?

• A.

Delay

• B.

Stored Data

• C.

Database

• D.

Internal Storage

D. Internal Storage
Explanation
Internal Storage is the symbol that indicates that information was stored in memory during a program in software design flowcharts. This symbol represents the temporary storage of data within the program and is commonly used to show where data is being held or manipulated within the program's execution. It helps in visualizing the flow of data within the software and understanding how information is being processed and stored.

### How many common type of boxes exist in a flowchart?

• A.

2

• B.

3

• C.

4

• D.

5

A. 2
Explanation
There are two common types of boxes in a flowchart. These are the process box, which represents a specific action or task, and the decision box, which represents a decision point where the flowchart branches based on a condition. These two types of boxes are essential in creating a clear and organized flowchart to represent a process or system.

### What is a processing step also called?

• A.

• B.

Activity

• C.

Line

• D.

Arrow

B. Activity
Explanation
A processing step is also called an activity because it refers to a specific action or task that is performed as part of a larger process. Activities are typically sequential and have a defined start and end point. They represent the individual steps or operations that need to be completed in order to achieve a desired outcome. Therefore, "activity" is the most appropriate term to describe a processing step.
