     Joan is researching musems in Paris.  She searched with the keywords Paris, museums, art France, and locations and was not pleased with the number of results.  If she redefines her search string to search for Paris and museums and compares the results to her firest search, the result of the second search will be:

    • A.

    • B.

    • C.

      Narrowed

    • D.

      Omitted

    Correct Answer
    C. Narrowed
    Explanation
    If Joan redefines her search string to include only the keywords "Paris" and "museums", the result of the second search will be narrowed. This means that she will get fewer results compared to her first search. By narrowing her search, Joan is being more specific and focusing only on the specific topic she is interested in, which reduces the number of irrelevant results.

    Jenny wates to search for information on the broad topic of the human genome and wantes more reliable results that those produced by a keyword search.  Which search tool will provide hand-picked selections of information related to her topic?

    • A.

      Individual search engine

    • B.

      Meta-search engine

    • C.

      Subject Directory

    • D.

      Web Crawler

    Correct Answer
    C. Subject Directory
    Explanation
    A subject directory is a search tool that provides hand-picked selections of information related to a specific topic. Unlike keyword searches, which may produce a large number of results that may not be relevant or reliable, a subject directory organizes information into categories and subcategories, making it easier for users to find reliable and relevant information on a specific topic. This is why a subject directory would be the best choice for Jenny to find more reliable results on the broad topic of the human genome.

    John used a meta-search engine and a search engine to search for information about identity theft.  When he compared the results of the two searched, the meta search engine returned:

    • A.

      Fewer but more relevant results

    • B.

      Fewer less relevant results

    • C.

      More, but less relevant results

    • D.

      More duplicate results

    Correct Answer
    A. Fewer but more relevant results
    Explanation
    When John compared the results of the meta-search engine and the search engine, he found that the meta-search engine returned fewer results. However, the results it did provide were more relevant to his search for information about identity theft. This means that the meta-search engine was able to filter out irrelevant information and present John with a smaller but more focused set of results that were directly related to his query.

It requires both the search terms to be present in the results, thereby reducing the number of irrelevant or unrelated results. In the given example, using "And" between "heart disease" and "smoking" would narrow down the search results to only those that include both terms, making the results more specific and focused.

      Individual search engine

    A. Individual search engine
    Explanation
    An individual search engine, such as Google or Bing, will provide the highest volume of results for a travel agent searching online airline reservations. This is because individual search engines crawl the entire web and index a vast amount of websites, making them more likely to retrieve a larger number of relevant results compared to other search tools like meta-search engines, research databases, or subject directories, which have more limited sources of information.

      Individual search engine

    • B.

    Correct Answer
    C. Subject directory
    Explanation
    Joe should use a subject directory to find educational research related specifically to North Carolina birds. A subject directory is a curated collection of websites organized by topic, making it easier to find relevant information. In this case, Joe can navigate through the subject directory's categories or search for "North Carolina birds" to access educational research specifically focused on that subject. Unlike search engines or web crawlers that provide a broader range of results, a subject directory narrows down the search to a specific topic, increasing the chances of finding accurate and reliable information.

This helps to filter out irrelevant or unrelated results, improving the overall quality and relevance of the search results.
