    Which OS is considered to be closed-source?

    • A.

      Android OS

    • B.

      Bluetooth

    • C.

      Linux

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Tablets have little or no field serviceable parts.
    D. Tablets use flash memory as the hard drive.
    Explanation
    Tablets have little or no field serviceable parts, meaning that they are not designed to be easily repaired or have their components replaced. This is in contrast to laptops, which often have easily accessible and replaceable parts. Additionally, tablets use flash memory as the hard drive, while laptops typically use traditional hard drives. Flash memory is faster and more durable than traditional hard drives, making it a common choice for tablets.

    Which of the following are valid Wi-Fi troubleshooting methods? (Select the twobest answers.)

    • A.

      Power cycle the device.

    • B.

      Restart Bluetooth.

    • C.

      Use a static IP.

    • D.

      Make sure the device is within range.

    • E.

      Rename the SSID.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Power cycle the device.
    D. Make sure the device is within range.
    Explanation
    Power cycling the device is a valid Wi-Fi troubleshooting method because it can help resolve temporary connectivity issues by resetting the device's network settings. Making sure the device is within range is also a valid method as Wi-Fi signals have limited range, and being out of range can cause connection problems. Restarting Bluetooth, using a static IP, and renaming the SSID are not valid Wi-Fi troubleshooting methods as they are unrelated to Wi-Fi connectivity issues.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which of the following connections requires a username, password, and SMTPserver? (Select the two best answers.)

    • A.

      Bluetooth connection

    • B.

      Wi-Fi connection

      Exchange connection

    • E.

      IMAP connection

    Correct Answer(s)
    C. POP3 connection
    E. IMAP connection
    Explanation
    The POP3 and IMAP connections require a username, password, and SMTP server. POP3 (Post Office Protocol version 3) and IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) are both email retrieval protocols that require authentication with a username and password to access the email server. Additionally, both protocols require an SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) server for sending emails. Therefore, these two options are the best answers.

    You want to prevent a person from accessing your phone while you step away from your desk. What should you do?

    • A.

      Implement remote backup

    • B.

      Set up a remote wipe program

    • C.

      Configure a screen lock.

    • D.

      Install a locator application.

    Correct Answer
    C. Configure a screen lock.
    Explanation
    To prevent unauthorized access to your phone while you step away from your desk, configuring a screen lock is the most effective solution. A screen lock adds an extra layer of security by requiring a password, PIN, pattern, or biometric authentication (such as fingerprint or face recognition) to unlock the device. This ensures that even if someone gains physical access to your phone, they won't be able to access your personal data without the correct credentials. Remote backup, remote wipe programs, and locator applications are useful for different purposes, but they do not directly address the issue of preventing access to your phone in your absence.

    How would you secure a smartphone and its data? 

    • A.

      Passcode lock Remote wipe

    • B.

      Passcode lock

    • C.

      Passcode lock Remote wipe along with voice bade

    • D.

      Remote wipe

    Correct Answer
    A. Passcode lock Remote wipe
    Explanation
    Securing a smartphone and its data can be done by implementing a passcode lock and enabling the remote wipe feature. A passcode lock adds an extra layer of security by requiring a password or PIN to access the device, preventing unauthorized access. Remote wipe allows the user to remotely erase all the data on the smartphone in case it is lost or stolen, ensuring that sensitive information does not fall into the wrong hands. By combining these two measures, the smartphone and its data can be effectively protected from unauthorized access and potential data breaches.

    You are setting up a SOHO wireless network. Which of the following provides the best security?

    • A.

      Enable SSID and configure WPA2

    • B.

      Disable SSID and configure WPA2

    • C.

    • D.

      All of the Above

    Correct Answer
    A. Enable SSID and configure WPA2
    Explanation
    Enabling SSID and configuring WPA2 provides the best security for a SOHO wireless network. SSID stands for Service Set Identifier, which is the name of the wireless network. Enabling it allows devices to easily identify and connect to the network. WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) is a security protocol that encrypts the data transmitted over the network, making it more difficult for unauthorized users to access and intercept the information. By combining both the enablement of SSID and the configuration of WPA2, the network is not only easily identifiable but also protected with strong encryption, ensuring the highest level of security for the SOHO wireless network.

    Explanation
    The primary partition is specifically the partition from which the operating system boots. This is because the primary partition contains the necessary boot files and the operating system itself. The active partition, on the other hand, is the partition that the computer boots from initially, but it may not necessarily contain the operating system. The extended partition and logical partition are used for creating additional partitions within a primary partition, but they are not directly involved in the boot process.
