    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    By purchasing a textbook from Borders.com and having the merchandise physically delivered, Borders.com would be considered a click-and-mortar organization because pure EC did not occur.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that by purchasing a textbook from Borders.com and having the merchandise physically delivered, it indicates that the transaction involved both online and offline elements. This combination of online and offline operations is characteristic of a click-and-mortar organization. Pure electronic commerce (EC) would occur if the transaction was conducted entirely online without any physical delivery involved. Therefore, since physical delivery was part of the transaction, Borders.com can be considered a click-and-mortar organization.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    In business-to-consumers (B2C), a business sells to a business but delivers the product or service to an individual consumer.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because in business-to-consumer (B2C) transactions, a business sells directly to individual consumers, not to other businesses. The product or service is delivered to the individual consumer, rather than to another business.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    An example of business-to-consumer (B2C) is when Apple provides customer service online by collaborating electronically with its partners.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false because it describes a business-to-business (B2B) interaction rather than a business-to-consumer (B2C) interaction. B2C refers to transactions between a business and individual consumers, such as when Apple sells its products directly to customers through its online store. In this case, the statement suggests that Apple is collaborating electronically with its partners to provide customer service, which implies a B2B relationship.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The final participants in B2B transactions are consumers.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The final participants in B2B transactions are not consumers, but rather businesses. B2B stands for "business-to-business," which means that the transactions are conducted between two or more businesses rather than between a business and a consumer. Consumers are the final participants in B2C (business-to-consumer) transactions, where businesses sell products or services directly to individual consumers. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Social commerce is concerned with the creation of places where people can collaborate online and solicit advice.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Social commerce refers to the integration of social media and e-commerce, where people can engage in online collaboration and seek advice from others. It involves the creation of platforms or spaces where individuals can interact, share opinions, and make informed purchasing decisions. Therefore, the statement "Social commerce is concerned with the creation of places where people can collaborate online and solicit advice" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Insufficient telecommunications bandwidth is no longer a limitation of e-commerce.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because insufficient telecommunications bandwidth can still be a limitation for e-commerce. Inadequate bandwidth can result in slow loading times, buffering issues, and overall poor user experience for online shoppers. It can also hinder the ability of businesses to efficiently process and manage large volumes of online transactions. Therefore, having sufficient telecommunications bandwidth remains crucial for the smooth functioning of e-commerce operations.
