    1. Which of the following is an example of BAD file management?

    • A.

      Create a folder for each of your classes and name the folders with each of your class names

      Create folders and name the folders 1, 2, 3 and put random pictures and documents in each of the folders

    • C.

      Create a folder within a folder to store pictures

    Correct Answer
    B. Create folders and name the folders 1, 2, 3 and put random pictures and documents in each of the folders
    Explanation
    Creating folders and naming them with numbers and then randomly placing pictures and documents in each folder is an example of bad file management because it lacks organization and makes it difficult to locate specific files. It is important to have a systematic and logical file management system to easily find and access files when needed.

    2. Which of the following is NOT a property of a folder?

      Folders cannot be deleted after creating

    • C.

      Folders can be moved, deleted, and renamed

    Correct Answer
    B. Folders cannot be deleted after creating
    Explanation
    The given answer is incorrect. Folders can be deleted after creating. Deleting a folder removes it from the file system and permanently deletes all the files and sub-folders contained within it. Therefore, the correct answer should be "None of the above" as all the properties mentioned in the options are true for folders.

    To select the items mentioned in the handout, you would hold the Ctrl (Control) key. This key is commonly used in combination with other keys to perform various functions, such as selecting multiple items or copying and pasting. Holding the Ctrl key while clicking on the items allows you to select them simultaneously.

    4. REFER TO HANDOUT.  Which of the following is NOT an example of a hierarchy?

    • A.

      It is A

    • B.

      It is B

    • C.

      It is C

    Correct Answer
    C. It is C
    Explanation
    The question asks for an example of something that is NOT a hierarchy. Option C is the correct answer because it is not an example of a hierarchy. However, without further context or information from the handout, it is not possible to provide a more specific explanation.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    5. On Office Button, you canNOT do which of the following?

    • A.

      Open a file

    • B.

      Print a file

    • C.

      Format a file

    Correct Answer
    C. Format a file
    Explanation
    On the Office Button, you cannot format a file. The Office Button typically allows users to access various options and functions related to managing and manipulating files, such as opening a file or printing a file. However, formatting a file is not one of the available options on the Office Button. Formatting a file usually involves changing the appearance or layout of the content within the file, such as adjusting fonts, colors, or page settings. This action is typically performed through other menus or options within the software program being used.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    6. If you’re including any other documents when mailing a letter, you should include the word Enclosure at the end of the letter.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When mailing a letter, if you are including any other documents along with it, it is considered good practice to include the word "Enclosure" at the end of the letter. This helps to inform the recipient that there are additional documents enclosed with the letter. By including this word, it ensures that the recipient is aware of the additional materials and can easily identify them when opening the letter. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    7. The subject line in a business letter should be in Capital letters.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In a business letter, the subject line is typically written in capital letters. This is done to make it stand out and grab the reader's attention. Using capital letters also gives the subject line a more formal and professional appearance. Additionally, capitalizing the subject line helps to clearly differentiate it from the rest of the content in the letter.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    8. In a business letter cc: stands for:

    • A.

      Complimentary copy or carbon copy

    • B.

      Check cut

    Correct Answer
    A. Complimentary copy or carbon copy
    Explanation
    The abbreviation "cc:" in a business letter stands for "carbon copy" or "complimentary copy". This means that when you send a letter to someone and want to send a copy to another person, you would include their name after "cc:" to indicate that they are receiving a copy of the letter. This allows multiple recipients to be aware of the communication without having to send separate letters to each person.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    9. Which of the following is a close in a business letter?

    • A.

      Dear

    • B.

      What’s up dawg

    • C.

      Cordially

    Correct Answer
    C. Cordially
    Explanation
    A close in a business letter is a formal way to end the letter and show respect and professionalism. "Cordially" is a commonly used close in business correspondence as it conveys a polite and friendly tone. It is appropriate for both formal and semi-formal letters and is a professional way to end a business communication.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    10. Which of the following is a salutation in a business letter?

    • A.

      Dear

    • B.

      What’s up dawg

    • C.

      Cordially

    Correct Answer
    A. Dear
    Explanation
    "Dear" is a commonly used salutation in a business letter. It is a formal and respectful way to address the recipient of the letter. "What's up dawg" is too informal for a business letter, and "Cordially" is a closing phrase rather than a salutation.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    11. Which of the following formatting option does NOT apply to a business letter?

    • A.

      Font can be any style

      Language should be formal

    • C.

      Business letters are a way to communicate

    Correct Answer
    A. Font can be any style
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Font can be any style". This option does not apply to a business letter because in a professional setting, it is important to maintain a consistent and professional appearance. Using a variety of font styles can make the letter look unprofessional and may distract the reader from the content of the letter. It is recommended to use a standard and easily readable font style, such as Arial or Times New Roman, for business letters.

    • C.

      Logo

    Correct Answer
    A. Provides contact information, branding, and credibility
    Explanation
    Letterhead provides contact information, branding, and credibility. It is a printed heading on a sheet of paper that typically includes the company's name, address, phone number, and logo. It serves as a means of communication and identification for the company, allowing recipients to easily contact and recognize the organization. Additionally, the presence of a professional letterhead can enhance the company's credibility and establish a sense of trustworthiness.

    • A.

      It is A

    • B.

      It is B

    • C.

      It is C

    Correct Answer
    B. It is B
    Explanation
    A superscript is a character or symbol that is positioned slightly above the normal line of text. It is commonly used for mathematical exponents, footnotes, and citations. In this case, option B is a superscript because it is positioned above the normal line of text.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    14. REFER TO HANDOUT.  Which of the following is a subscript?

    • A.

      It is A

    • B.

      It is B

    • C.

      It is C

    Correct Answer
    A. It is A
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "It is A" because a subscript is a small character or number placed slightly below the normal line of text. In the given options, only option A is a subscript as it is written in a smaller font size and slightly below the normal line of text. Option B and C do not have any distinguishing features of a subscript.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    15. Which of the following does NOT describe a table?

      Made up of columns and rows

    • C.

      Used to create graphics

    Correct Answer
    C. Used to create graphics
    Explanation
    This answer is correct because a table is not used to create graphics. Tables are commonly used to organize and present data in a structured format with columns and rows. They are also used in web design to arrange content on a webpage. However, creating graphics is typically done using software or tools specifically designed for graphic design, not tables.

Additionally, MS Word allows for easy collaboration and editing, making it convenient for multiple authors working on the same paper.

Overall, MS Word provides the necessary tools and functionality to effectively write and format a research paper.

In this case, pressing the Insert key toggles between the insert mode, where new characters are inserted at the cursor, and the overtype mode, where new characters overwrite the existing ones.

      Including common knowledge found on a website without a citation

    • C.

      Putting someone else’s idea into your own words

    Correct Answer
    B. Including common knowledge found on a website without a citation
    Explanation
    Including common knowledge found on a website without a citation is not an example of plagiarism because common knowledge is information that is widely known and accepted, and therefore does not require attribution.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Citation is indeed a reference to a source. When writing an academic paper or conducting research, it is important to give credit to the original authors or sources of information that were used. A citation provides the necessary information about the source, such as the author's name, title of the work, publication date, and page numbers. This allows readers to locate and verify the information, as well as acknowledge the original creator. Therefore, the statement "Citation is a reference to a source" is true.

    Explanation
    A hanging indentation is a formatting style where the first line of a paragraph is aligned with the left margin, and all subsequent lines are indented. In option B, the second line is indented, indicating a hanging indentation. Option A does not show any indentation, so it is not a hanging indentation.

    A. Internet Explorer
    Explanation
    Internet Explorer is not a search engine, but rather a web browser developed by Microsoft.

    27. A crawler-based search engine is:

    • A.

      Creates their listings automatically

    • B.

      Requires a human to add the listing

    Correct Answer
    A. Creates their listings automatically

These crawlers follow links on web pages, collecting information about the content and structure of the websites they visit. This information is then used to create the search engine's listings, which are the results displayed when users perform a search. Unlike search engines that require a human to manually add listings, a crawler-based search engine automates the process of indexing and updating its database of web pages.
