    The cell reference for a range of cells that starts in cell B1 and goes over to column G and down to row 10 is _____.

    • A.

      B1-G10

    • B.

      B1.G10

    • C.

      B1;G10

    • D.

      B1:G10

    D. B1:G10
    Explanation
    The cell reference for a range of cells that starts in cell B1 and goes over to column G and down to row 10 is B1:G10. This is because the colon (:) is used to indicate a range of cells, and B1:G10 represents all the cells from B1 to G10 in a rectangular shape.

    Explanation
    If you make a mistake when creating a chart using the wizard, you do not have to start again by selecting the range and proceeding through the chart wizard. The chart can be edited or modified after it has been created, allowing you to fix any mistakes without having to start from scratch.

      A blinking border

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. A darker wide border
    Explanation
    The active cell on an Excel sheet is indicated by a darker wide border. This border helps to identify which cell is currently selected and ready to receive input or perform actions. It stands out from the other cells, making it easier for users to navigate and work with the spreadsheet. The darker wide border serves as a visual cue to indicate the active cell's location and status.

      Adding a graphic to the spreadsheet

      Reference in a formula to cels on other worksheets

      A special kind of function that uses 3 numbers

    • D.

      Formatting with 3 colors.

    Correct Answer
    B. Reference in a formula to cels on other worksheets
    Explanation
    A 3D reference in a spreadsheet refers to a formula that includes cells from multiple worksheets. This means that the formula is not limited to just one worksheet, but can access and calculate data from different sheets within the same spreadsheet. This can be useful when you need to perform calculations or analysis that involve data from different sources or categories within your spreadsheet.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    If you press _____, the cell accepts your typing as its contents but the focus stays in the cell

    • A.

      Enter

    • B.

      CTRL + Enter

    • C.

      Tab

    • D.

      Insert

    Correct Answer
    B. CTRL + Enter
    Explanation
    Pressing CTRL + Enter allows the user to input their typing into the cell as its contents, but the focus remains in the cell. This means that after entering the text, the user can continue editing or performing other actions within the same cell without having to click on another cell. This shortcut is commonly used in spreadsheet applications like Microsoft Excel to quickly input data and move to the next line within the same cell.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The view that puts a blue line around each page that would be printed is the _____.

    • A.

      Print Preview

    • B.

      Normal

    • C.

      Page Break Preview

    • D.

      Split View

    Correct Answer
    C. Page Break Preview
    Explanation
    The view that puts a blue line around each page that would be printed is the Page Break Preview. In this view, users can see how the content of their document will be divided and displayed on each printed page. The blue line represents the page breaks, allowing users to adjust and modify the layout accordingly. This view is particularly useful for ensuring that the document is properly formatted and that no important content is split between different pages when printed.

    Using the AutoSum button will place in the selected cell _____.

    • A.

      The sum of values in the cell's column

    • B.

      Nothing until you select a range of cells

    • C.

      The sum of the cell's row unless you change the range

    • D.

      A formula which will add values in the range Excel guesses you want to add

    Correct Answer
    B. Nothing until you select a range of cells
    Explanation
    When using the AutoSum button, it will not place anything in the selected cell until you select a range of cells. This means that the AutoSum button will not automatically calculate the sum of values in the cell's column or the sum of the cell's row. It also does not automatically create a formula that adds values in a range guessed by Excel. The AutoSum button simply waits for the user to select a range of cells before performing the desired calculation.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    All text that appears on a chart must be formatted in the same font so that it will have a unified appearance.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because it is not necessary for all text on a chart to be formatted in the same font. Different fonts can be used to highlight different sections or emphasize certain information on the chart. This can help to improve readability and draw attention to important details. Therefore, the text on a chart can be formatted in different fonts to achieve a desired visual effect.

    A. Right-click on the status bar and select SUM
    Explanation
    To quickly add selected cells in Excel, you can right-click on the status bar and select SUM. This action will instantly display the sum of the selected cells in the status bar at the bottom of the Excel window.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

     Once you go to print preview mode, you either have to print or cancel because there is no way to go back and edit your spreadsheet after you have gone that far.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    In print preview mode, you can still go back and edit your spreadsheet. This means that you have the option to make changes to your spreadsheet even after entering print preview mode. Therefore, the statement "Once you go to print preview mode, you either have to print or cancel because there is no way to go back and edit your spreadsheet after you have gone that far" is false.

    Rate this question:

      hold down the SHIFT key

    • C.

      Hold down the ALT key

    • D.

      Hold down CTRL + SHIFT

    Correct Answer
    A. Hold down the CTRL key
    Explanation
    To select several cells or ranges that are not touching each other, you would hold down the CTRL key while selecting. Holding down the CTRL key allows you to select multiple non-contiguous cells or ranges by clicking on each of them individually. This key modifier is commonly used in spreadsheet software to make non-sequential selections.

    A certain spreadsheet shows in Page Break Preview that cells in Rows 1 - 25 have white background. The cells in Row 26 that contain data have a dark gray background. When you click the Print button,  _____.

    • A.

      Nothing will print because some cells with data have been omitted

    • B.

      Only the cells with gray background will print

    • C.

      The whole sheet will print

    • D.

      Only the cells with white background will print.

    Correct Answer
    D. Only the cells with white background will print.
    Explanation
    When you click the Print button, only the cells with a white background will print. This is because the Page Break Preview shows that cells in Rows 1-25 have a white background, indicating that they are set to be printed. On the other hand, the cells in Row 26 with a dark gray background are not set to be printed. Therefore, when you click the Print button, only the cells with a white background will be included in the printout.

    Correct Answer
    A. The cell below the cell where you entered the data
    Explanation
    When you enter data into a cell and press the Enter key on the keyboard, the cursor will move to the cell below the cell where you entered the data. This is the default behavior in most spreadsheet software, including Microsoft Excel. Moving to the cell below allows the user to easily continue entering data in a columnar fashion.
