### LAYER

Explanation
The given answer "LA,-LA,-la" can be interpreted as a representation of different layers or levels. The capital letters "LA" could indicate the topmost layer, while the hyphenated "-LA" suggests a lower level beneath the first layer. Finally, the lowercase "la" could signify an even lower level or the bottommost layer. This answer implies a hierarchical structure or a descending order of importance or significance.

### What function key (F) calls up the command history?

Explanation
The function key F2 (or f2) calls up the command history. This means that pressing the F2 key (or f2 key) on the keyboard will display a list of previously entered commands, allowing the user to easily access and repeat them. This feature is useful for recalling and reusing commands without having to retype them.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### What function key (F) turns ortho(horizontal/vertical only) on/off?

Explanation
Pressing the F8 key on the keyboard turns on or off the ortho mode, which restricts the cursor movement to horizontal or vertical directions only. This mode is commonly used in computer-aided design (CAD) software to ensure precise alignment and positioning of objects. By toggling the ortho mode, users can easily switch between free movement and constrained movement along specific axes.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### What function key (F) turns snaps on/off?

Explanation
Pressing the F3 key on the keyboard turns the snaps on/off.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### RECTANGLE (example: Shift F E)

Explanation
The correct answer is "Alt D G, Alt d g" because it is the correct way to input the keyboard shortcut for the given command "RECTANGLE". The command is to be executed by pressing the "Alt" key followed by "D" and then "G", regardless of the case sensitivity of the letters.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### A typed command is always followed by _______________.

Explanation
A typed command is always followed by either pressing the "Enter" key on the keyboard or pressing the "Spacebar" key. In this case, the answer includes different variations of these keys being mentioned, such as "Enter", "Spacebar", "enter", "spacebar", and "Space bar".

Rate this question:

• 11.

### The end of a LAYER Script file is followed by two _____________.

Explanation
The end of a LAYER Script file is followed by two "enters". This means that after the last line of the script, two line breaks or new lines are expected. This is a common convention in programming languages and scripting to indicate the end of a file or a block of code. The two "enters" help in maintaining readability and separating the script from any other content that may follow.

Rate this question:

• 12.

### Tools>Options (example: Alt D G)

Explanation
The given correct answer for this question is "Alt T N, Alt t n, alt t n". This answer suggests that the shortcut keys "Alt T N" or "Alt t n" or "alt t n" should be used to access a specific feature or function in the Tools menu. The repetition of the answer in different cases (lowercase and uppercase) indicates that the shortcut keys can be typed in any case and will still perform the desired action.

Rate this question:

• 13.

### Name the (x,y) coordinate for origin.

Explanation
The correct answer is (0,0). In coordinate geometry, the origin represents the point where the x-axis and y-axis intersect. It is denoted as (0,0) because it has zero distance from both the x-axis and the y-axis. The alternative answers, 0,0, are incorrect as they do not follow the conventional format of representing coordinates in parentheses.

Rate this question:

• 14.

### Color 1 is the ________________  lineweight.

Explanation
The correct answer is "thinnest". This is because the word "thinnest" is the correct spelling and usage to describe the lineweight of Color 1. "Thinest" is misspelled and therefore incorrect.

Rate this question:

• 15.

### Color 7 is the __________________ lineweight.

Explanation
The given answer "thickest" is the correct explanation because it directly completes the sentence and provides the missing information. It states that "Color 7" is the lineweight that is the thickest.

Rate this question:

• 16.

### Color 252 is a ______________________ line.

Explanation
Color 252 is referred to as grayscale or gray. Grayscale is a color model that represents images using shades of gray, ranging from black to white, with no additional colors. Gray is a specific shade of gray, often described as a medium or neutral tone. Therefore, both grayscale and gray accurately describe the color 252 in terms of its lack of color and its specific shade of gray.

Rate this question:

• 17.

### TILEMODE

Explanation
The given answer "TM,tm" suggests that "TM" and "tm" are the correct values for the variable TILEMODE. It is likely that TILEMODE is a variable or setting that can have different values, and "TM" and "tm" are the specific values that it can take. The use of uppercase and lowercase letters suggests that the values may be case-sensitive. However, without further context or information, it is difficult to determine the exact meaning or purpose of TILEMODE and its possible values.

Rate this question:

• 18.

### What is the most important word to see on the Layer toolbar?

Explanation
The most important word to see on the Layer toolbar is "Bylayer" or "bylayer". This is because it indicates that the properties of the object, such as color, linetype, and lineweight, are set to be controlled by the layer they are on. This allows for easier management and editing of objects within a drawing, as changes made to the layer properties will automatically be applied to all objects on that layer.
