    Correct Answer
    B. Goal Seek can be used conditionally to solve scenarios based on single constraints
    Explanation
    Goal Seek is a feature in Excel that allows users to find the input value needed to achieve a specific goal or desired result. It can be used conditionally to solve scenarios based on single constraints, meaning that it can find a specific input value that meets a single condition. For example, it can be used to determine the required sales volume to achieve a target profit. However, it cannot be used to solve scenarios based on multiple constraints simultaneously.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    You open a worksheet, you received in an email with cells D6:D9 containing the formula {=a6:A9*C6:C9}. Which feature of excel can help us design formulae like this

    • A.

      List

    • B.

      Array

      Range Product

    • D.

      Matrix

    Correct Answer
    B. Array
    Explanation
    The feature of Excel that can help us design formulae like this is Array. Array formulas allow us to perform calculations on multiple cells or ranges of cells at once, rather than having to apply the formula to each individual cell. In this case, the formula {=a6:A9*C6:C9} is using an array formula to multiply corresponding values in the ranges A6:A9 and C6:C9.

    Which of the following functions are correct syntactically?

    The correct answer is "=Small(A1:A5,C1)". This function is correct syntactically because it follows the proper syntax for the SMALL function, which is "SMALL(array, k)". In this case, the "array" is A1:A5, which represents a range of cells, and "k" is C1, which represents the k-th smallest value to return from the array.
