    Correct Answer
    Margin
    margen
    Explanation
    The blank border on each side of the print on a page is known as the margin. It provides space between the content and the edge of the page, allowing for easier reading and a cleaner layout. The margin helps to frame the content and prevent it from being too close to the edges, ensuring that the text or images are not cut off or obscured.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    A template is a preset format for a document or file, used so that the format does not have to be recreated each time it is used.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A template is a pre-designed format or layout that is used as a starting point for creating documents or files. It eliminates the need to recreate the format from scratch every time it is needed, saving time and effort. Templates are commonly used in word processing software, presentation software, and graphic design programs. They provide consistency and efficiency by providing a standardized structure that can be easily customized to suit individual needs. Therefore, the statement "A template is a preset format for a document or file, used so that the format does not have to be recreated each time it is used" is true.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the insertion point refers to the location where new text will be inserted in a document, such as a cursor or blinking line. It does not have any relation to the imaginary line that the text will conform to on the left or right side of the page.
