    The internet is an example of a client/server network.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The internet is indeed an example of a client/server network. In a client/server network, there are two types of computers: clients and servers. Clients are the devices that request and receive information from the servers. Servers, on the other hand, are the powerful computers that store and distribute information to the clients. In the case of the internet, users (clients) access websites and other online resources by sending requests to servers. The servers then process these requests and send the requested information back to the clients. This client/server architecture is what allows the internet to function as a vast network of interconnected devices.

      Uniform reform locator

    • D.

      Uniform resource locator

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    A URL stands for Uniform Resource Locator. It is a string of characters that provides the address or location of a resource on the internet. It is used to specify the web address of a webpage, file, or any other resource. The term "uniform" refers to the consistent format and structure of URLs, while "resource" refers to any online content that can be accessed through a specific URL.

    • D.

      Hyperlink

    Correct Answer
    D. Hyperlink
    Explanation
    A URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is a web address that specifies the location of a resource on the internet. The protocol is the first part of a URL and indicates the communication protocol to be used, such as HTTP or HTTPS. The path or subdirectory refers to the specific location within the domain where the resource is located. The domain name is the unique identifier for a website. However, a hyperlink is not a part of the URL itself. A hyperlink is a clickable element on a webpage that redirects the user to another URL when clicked.

    Explanation
    A URL (Uniform Resource Locator) consists of four main parts: the protocol, the domain name, the path, and the query parameters. The protocol indicates the type of connection being made (e.g., HTTP or HTTPS). The domain name is the address of the website. The path specifies the specific page or resource within the website. And the query parameters are optional additional information that can be passed to the website. Therefore, a URL typically has four parts.

    The graphical user interface (GUI) allows users to interact with the computer more easily. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that the graphical user interface (GUI) indeed allows users to interact with the computer more easily. Unlike command-line interfaces, which require users to input text commands, GUIs use visual elements such as icons, menus, and buttons to facilitate user interaction. These visual elements make it easier for users to navigate and control the computer system, as they can simply click or tap on the desired options instead of memorizing and typing specific commands. Therefore, the statement "The graphical user interface (GUI) allows users to interact with the computer more easily" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 31.

    A. True
    Explanation
    Apple was the first company to use GUIs. This statement is true because Apple was indeed the first company to introduce graphical user interfaces (GUIs) to the mass market with the release of the Macintosh computer in 1984. GUIs revolutionized the way users interacted with computers by replacing text-based interfaces with visual elements such as icons, windows, and menus. This innovation played a significant role in making computers more user-friendly and accessible to a wider audience.
