    Explanation
    The rows in a spreadsheet go side to side. In a spreadsheet, data is organized in a grid-like structure with rows and columns. Each row represents a separate record or entry, and the data within each row is displayed horizontally from left to right. Therefore, the rows in a spreadsheet are oriented side to side.
