Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What sort of information can be entered in a database? (You can select more than one)

    • A.

      Videos

    • B.

    • C.

      Images

    • D.

      Numbers

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Text
    D. Numbers
    Explanation
    A database can store various types of information such as text and numbers. Text can include any form of written information, including names, descriptions, and other textual content. Numbers can be used to store quantitative data, such as measurements, quantities, or any other numerical values. While videos and images can be stored in a database as well, they are not included in the given correct answer.

  • 2. 

    Applying a FILTER in a database table reduces the number of records visible.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Applying a filter in a database table allows users to specify certain criteria or conditions that the data must meet in order to be displayed. This helps to narrow down the results and reduces the number of records visible, as only those that meet the specified conditions will be shown. Therefore, the statement that applying a filter in a database table reduces the number of records visible is true.

    How can computers and devices be connected in a network?

    • A.

      By a modem

    • B.

      By a network cable

    • C.

      By wireless

    • D.

      All of these

    • E.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    D. All of these
    Explanation
    Computers and devices can be connected in a network through various means. A modem can be used to establish a connection between devices using telephone lines or cable lines. A network cable, such as Ethernet cable, can be used to directly connect devices to a network switch or router. Wireless connectivity, such as Wi-Fi, allows devices to connect to a network without the need for physical cables. Therefore, all of these options are valid methods for connecting computers and devices in a network.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which of these IS NOT an advantage of a computer network

    • A.

      Saving electricity

    • B.

      Sharing resources

    • C.

      Sharing programs

    • D.

      Communicating

    Correct Answer
    A. Saving electricity
    Explanation
    Saving electricity is not an advantage of a computer network because computer networks actually require electricity to function. The main advantages of a computer network include sharing resources, sharing programs, and communicating. These advantages allow for increased efficiency, collaboration, and data sharing among network users.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    One advantage of a BUS network is that is uses less cabling

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A BUS network is a type of computer network where all devices are connected to a single cable called a bus. In this network, the devices share the same communication channel, which means less cabling is required compared to other network topologies like a star or ring network. This reduces the cost and complexity of installation and maintenance, making it an advantage of a BUS network.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    This is a drawing of a

    • A.

      Bus network

    • B.

      Star network

    • C.

      Peer-to-peer network

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    B. Star network
    Explanation
    The drawing represents a star network because it shows a central node connected to multiple peripheral nodes. In a star network, all nodes are connected directly to the central node, which facilitates easy communication between the central node and the peripheral nodes. This type of network is commonly used in computer networks, where the central node can be a server or a switch, and the peripheral nodes can be client devices.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which type of network is unaffected if one of the computers on it fails?

    • A.

      Bus network

    • B.

      Star network

    Correct Answer
    B. Star network
    Explanation
    In a star network, each computer is connected directly to a central hub. This means that if one computer fails, it does not affect the rest of the network. The other computers can continue to function normally and communicate with each other through the central hub. This is because the failure of one computer does not disrupt the connections of the other computers in the network.
