Trivia Quiz: What Do You Know About Flowchart? - Quiz

Simply put, a flowchart is a visual representation of the steps that are involved in the execution of a computer program. Since computer programs follow a specific order, flowcharts are designed similarly. The symbols that can be found in a flowchart have different meanings. Do you know this? Take this quiz now!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What symbol often indicates the beginning and end of a program or sub-process?

    • A.

      Flowline 

    • B.

      Terminal 

    • C.

      Process 

    • D.

      Decision

    Correct Answer
    B. Terminal 
    Explanation
    The symbol that often indicates the beginning and end of a program or sub-process is a Terminal. This symbol is commonly used in flowcharts to represent the start and end points of a program or sub-process. It signifies where the program or sub-process begins and where it ends, providing a clear visual representation of the flow of the program or sub-process.

    What flowchart symbol is often represented as a stadium?

    • A.

      Flowline 

    • B.

      Terminal

    • C.

      Decision

    • D.

      Process

    Correct Answer
    B. Terminal
    Explanation
    The flowchart symbol that is often represented as a stadium is the Terminal symbol. The Terminal symbol is used to indicate the start or end point of a flowchart. It represents the beginning or end of a process or program. The shape of a stadium is commonly used to visually represent this symbol, with a rounded rectangle shape and two inward-pointing arrows at the top and bottom.

      Input 

    • D.

      Terminal 

    Correct Answer
    A. Process
    Explanation
    A process symbol in a flowchart represents a set of operations or a series of actions that are performed in a specific order. It indicates the steps or tasks that need to be executed to achieve a particular outcome. This symbol can represent calculations, data manipulation, or any other type of operation that needs to be performed within the flowchart.

    What flowchart symbol indicates the process of inputting data?

    • A.

      Input 

    • B.

      Enter 

    • C.

      Output 

    • D.

      Terminal 

    Correct Answer
    A. Input 
    Explanation
    The flowchart symbol that indicates the process of inputting data is "Input". This symbol is used to represent the step where data is entered into the system. It signifies the action of receiving information or values from an external source and making them available for further processing within the flowchart.

    Which of these symbols is not commonly used in flowcharts?

    • A.

      Input/output 

    • B.

      Terminal

    • C.

      Predefined process

    • D.

      Document 

    Correct Answer
    D. Document 
    Explanation
    The symbol "Document" is not commonly used in flowcharts. Flowcharts typically use symbols such as input/output, terminal, and predefined process to represent different steps or actions in a process. The "Document" symbol is not a standard symbol used in flowcharts and is therefore not commonly seen in this type of diagram.

  • 6. 

    Which of these is often represented by two horizontal lines at the beginning?

    • A.

      Parallel processing 

    • B.

      Join

    • C.

      Document 

    • D.

      Fork

    Correct Answer
    A. Parallel processing 
    Explanation
    Parallel processing is often represented by two horizontal lines at the beginning. This symbol signifies that multiple tasks or processes can be executed simultaneously, allowing for increased efficiency and faster execution. The two horizontal lines represent the parallel nature of the processing, indicating that tasks can be performed concurrently rather than sequentially. This symbol is commonly used in computer science and programming to represent parallel processing.

    What flowchart symbol is often represented by an elongated hexagon?

    • A.

      Manual operation

    • B.

      Manual input 

    • C.

      Initialization

    • D.

      Document 

    Correct Answer
    C. Initialization
    Explanation
    The flowchart symbol that is often represented by an elongated hexagon is Initialization. Initialization is typically used to represent the step in a flowchart where variables or data are set to their initial values or states before the main process or algorithm begins. This symbol helps to indicate the starting point of the flowchart and ensures that all necessary variables and data are properly initialized before the execution of the main process.

    Which of these programming languages does not use flowcharts to execute programs?

    • A.

      Flogorithm

    • B.

      Inkscape 

    • C.

      Visual Logic 

    • D.

      Raptor 

    Correct Answer
    B. Inkscape 
    Explanation
    Inkscape is not a programming language, but a vector graphics editor. It is used for creating and editing images, not for writing and executing programs. Therefore, it does not use flowcharts or any other programming constructs to execute programs.

    What flowchart symbol is formed from a quadrilateral?

    • A.

      On-page connector 

    • B.

      Data file 

    • C.

      Manual operation 

    • D.

      Document 

    Correct Answer
    C. Manual operation 
    Explanation
    A flowchart symbol formed from a quadrilateral is a manual operation. This symbol represents a step in the process that requires manual input or intervention. It indicates that a specific action or task needs to be performed by a person rather than an automated system. This can include activities such as data entry, decision making, or physical manipulation of objects. The manual operation symbol helps to visually represent the flow of the process and highlight the steps that require human involvement.

    Which of these flowchart symbols is formed from a trapezoid?

    • A.

      On-page connector 

    • B.

      Manual operation

    • C.

      Manual input 

    • D.

      Document 

    Correct Answer
    B. Manual operation
    Explanation
    A trapezoid-shaped symbol is commonly used to represent a manual operation in a flowchart. This symbol indicates a step in the process that requires a manual action or intervention. It could involve a person performing a specific task or operation that cannot be automated. Therefore, the correct answer is "Manual operation."
