  • 2. 

    Contrast Save and Save As.

    • A.

      Save is an operation that overwrites the prior version of the spreadsheet with the enhanced version. Save As is an operation that allows you to give the new copy a prior version a different name than the original.

    • B.

      Save is an operation that allows you to give the new copy a prior version a different name than the original. Save As is an operation that overwrites the prior version of the spreadsheet with the enhanced version.

    • C.

      Save and Save as are the same thing.

    Correct Answer
    A. Save is an operation that overwrites the prior version of the spreadsheet with the enhanced version. Save As is an operation that allows you to give the new copy a prior version a different name than the original.
    Explanation
    Save is an operation that overwrites the prior version of the spreadsheet with the enhanced version. Save As, on the other hand, allows you to give the new copy a prior version a different name than the original. This means that Save replaces the existing file with the updated version, while Save As creates a new file with a different name, leaving the original file unchanged. Therefore, Save and Save As have different functions and outcomes.

      The open operation allows you to select the file containing the project you would like to work on; The close operation allows you to stop working on a project but remain in the application program.

    • B.

      The Close operation allows you to exit the program and automatically saves the document. The Open operation allows you to open a document you've erased.

    • C.

      The Close operation allows you to upload a new document. The Open operation allows you to delete a document.

    Correct Answer
    A. The open operation allows you to select the file containing the project you would like to work on; The close operation allows you to stop working on a project but remain in the application program.
    Explanation
    The open operation and the close operation are both related to working on projects within an application program. The open operation allows the user to select a file that contains the project they want to work on, while the close operation allows them to stop working on a project but remain within the application program. The open operation does not involve erasing or deleting a document, and the close operation does not involve uploading a new document.

  • 4. 

    Describe a fragmented file.

    • A.

      A file that is corrupted.

    • B.

      A file that has many different documents.

    • C.

      A file allocated to noncontiguous clusters.

    Correct Answer
    C. A file allocated to noncontiguous clusters.
    Explanation
    A fragmented file refers to a file that is stored in noncontiguous clusters on a storage device. This means that the file's data is scattered across different parts of the storage medium, rather than being stored in one continuous block. Fragmentation can occur when a file is created, modified, or deleted, causing the file's data to be divided and spread out. This can lead to slower access times and reduced performance, as the computer needs to search for and retrieve the scattered data from different locations on the storage device.

    Rate this question:

  • 5.

    • A.

      Allows you to edit the size of a document.

    Correct Answer
    B. Puts electronic marks on the disk which divides the disk into a series of concentric tracks and that divides each track into a collection of sectors; this removes any information that was previously stored on the disk.
    Explanation
    Formatting refers to the process of putting electronic marks on a disk, dividing it into concentric tracks and sectors. This process removes any previously stored information on the disk.

    Macintosh pathnames are similar to _____________ pathnames.

    Correct Answer
    Windows
    Explanation
    Macintosh pathnames are similar to Windows pathnames. Both operating systems use a hierarchical structure to organize files and folders. In both systems, a file or folder is represented by a pathname, which specifies its location within the file system. Macintosh pathnames use a forward slash (/) as the separator between directories, while Windows pathnames use a backslash (\). However, the concept and purpose of pathnames are the same in both operating systems, allowing users to navigate and locate files and folders.

    As a file becomes more and more fragmented, the performance of the hard disk is_____________.

    Correct Answer
    degrading
    degrades
    degrade
    Explanation
    As a file becomes more and more fragmented, the performance of the hard disk decreases. Fragmentation occurs when a file is split into multiple parts and stored in different locations on the hard disk. This can lead to slower read and write times, as the disk needs to search for and access each fragment separately. Therefore, the performance of the hard disk degrades as fragmentation increases.
