Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    You place the insertion point in the middle of a paragraph and start typing. But the new text deletes existing text. What's the problem and how do you fix it? 

    • A.

      Word is in Overtype mode. Press BACKSPACE and retype.

    • B.

      The DELETE key is pressed in. Press DELETE again.

    • C.

      Word is in Overtype mode. Press INSERT to turn it off.

    Correct Answer
    C. Word is in Overtype mode. Press INSERT to turn it off.
    Explanation
    The problem is that Word is in Overtype mode, which causes new text to delete existing text instead of inserting it. To fix this, the user needs to press the INSERT key to turn off Overtype mode.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Once you've deleted text, you can't get it back. 

    • A.

      True.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement says that once you delete text, you can't get it back. This is not true because in many cases, deleted text can be recovered using various methods such as using the "undo" function, retrieving from the recycle bin, or using data recovery software. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    As you type a paragraph, press ENTER to move from one line to the next. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "True". This implies that the statement mentioned in the question is true. The question does not provide any specific statement or context, so it is difficult to determine the exact meaning or subject of the statement. However, based on the given information, we can conclude that the correct answer is "True" without further context.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The best way to create a heading in a document is to: 

    • A.

      Apply a larger font size to it than the body text.

    • B.

      Add bold formatting by clicking the Bold button on the Formatting toolbar.

    • C.

      Apply a heading style.

    Correct Answer
    C. Apply a heading style.
    Explanation
    Applying a heading style is the best way to create a heading in a document because it not only changes the font size, but also applies consistent formatting to the heading throughout the document. This ensures that all headings have the same appearance and makes it easier to manage and update them. Additionally, using a heading style allows for easy navigation and organization of the document's content.

    Rate this question:

    You create a numbered list as you type by typing 1, adding your text, and pressing ENTER. 

    • A.

      True

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because to create a numbered list as you type, you need to type a number followed by a period, add your text, and then press ENTER. Simply typing 1 and adding text will not create a numbered list.

    Explanation
    A header or footer is useful in a document to include the document title and page numbers. This helps in organizing the document and providing important information to the readers. By including the document title, the readers can easily identify the content of the document. Additionally, page numbers help in navigating through the document and referencing specific sections. Overall, using a header or footer with the document title and page numbers enhances the readability and usability of the document.

    Rate this question:

      Retype the document and give it a different name

    • B.

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    B. Use the Save as.. command
    Explanation
    To save an existing document with a different name, you need to use the "Save as.." command. This command allows you to create a copy of the original document and save it with a new name, without altering the original file. This is a common feature in most document editing software, including word processors and text editors. By using the "Save as.." command, you can easily create multiple versions of a document with different names, allowing you to keep track of different iterations or variations of the same file.

To resolve this issue, you can go to the View menu, select Toolbars, and then check the option for your favorite toolbar to make it visible again.

    Explanation
    When you create a document at home using a specific font and then try to open it on your school computer, the document may display with a different font. This is because the font you used at home is not installed on your school computer. Fonts are specific to each computer and need to be installed in order for them to be displayed correctly. If a font is not installed on a computer, the system will substitute it with a different font, resulting in a change in the appearance of the document.

      Four (top, bottom, right, left)

      Two (top and bottom)

    Correct Answer
    B. Four (top, bottom, right, left)
    Explanation
    The correct answer is four (top, bottom, right, left) because margins refer to the blank spaces around the content on a page. In order to create a balanced layout, it is common to have equal margins on all sides of the page. Therefore, there are four margins in total - one on the top, one on the bottom, one on the right, and one on the left.

      The same characters per line with the same document in landscape

    • B.

      More characters per line than the same document in landscape

    • C.

      Less characters per line than the same document in landscape

    • D.

      Smaller fonts in order to fit the same amount of characters per line with landscape

    Correct Answer
    C. Less characters per line than the same document in landscape
    Explanation
    In portrait mode, the document prints with fewer characters per line compared to the same document in landscape mode. This is because the width of the page is narrower in portrait orientation, which limits the number of characters that can fit on each line. As a result, the text may wrap to the next line sooner, reducing the number of characters per line.
