### A stroke is...

• A.

...the width of the paintbrush.

• B.

... the color of the paintbrush.

• C.

... the outline around a shape.

• D.

... the fill of a shape.

C. ... the outline around a shape.
Explanation
The correct answer is "the outline around a shape." In art and design, a stroke refers to the line or outline that defines the edges of a shape or object. It is the visible boundary that separates one shape from another or defines the contour of a single shape. The stroke can vary in thickness, color, and style, and it helps to give form and structure to the artwork.

### You can control the fluidity of the line drawn with the pencil tool.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The statement is true because the pencil tool in a drawing program allows the user to have control over the fluidity of the line being drawn. This means that the user can adjust the thickness or thinness of the line based on their preference or the specific requirements of the drawing. By controlling the fluidity, the user can create smooth and precise lines or more rough and sketchy lines, depending on their artistic intent.

Shift

• B.

Option

• C.

Control

### To make a donut shape you would use the...

• A.

... Oval Tool.

• B.

... Oval Primitive Tool and adjust the Start Angle.

• C.

Explanation
To make a donut shape, you would use the Oval Primitive Tool and adjust the Inner Radius. This is because the Inner Radius determines the size of the hole in the center of the shape, allowing you to create a hollow shape resembling a donut. The Oval Tool would not be suitable as it does not have the option to adjust the Inner Radius. Similarly, adjusting the Start Angle would not create a donut shape, but rather a partial oval.

### What would happen if you clicked and dragged now?

• A.

The right side of the square would be pushed in or out as a line.

• B.

The right side of the square would bow out or in as a curve.

• C.

The curser will draw a curved line.

• D.

The square will be turned into a circle.

B. The right side of the square would bow out or in as a curve.
Explanation
If you clicked and dragged now, the right side of the square would bow out or in as a curve. This means that instead of moving in a straight line, the side of the square would bend, creating a curved shape. This suggests that the dragging action would cause a deformation in the square, resulting in a curved line rather than a straight line.

• A.

... draw the shape with "object drawing" selected in the tools panel.

• B.

... group the shapes into an object.

• C.

... change the color of the shapes.

A. ... draw the shape with "object drawing" selected in the tools panel.
B. ... group the shapes into an object.
Explanation
To keep a shape from "taking a bite" out of another shape when it is dragged over and then moved later on, you can draw the shape with "object drawing" selected in the tools panel. This option allows the shape to be treated as a single object, preventing it from intersecting or overlapping with other shapes. Additionally, you can also group the shapes into an object. Grouping the shapes allows them to move together as a single unit, maintaining their relative positions and preventing one shape from overlapping or intersecting with another.

C. ... the point from which an object or shape is rotated or scaled.
Explanation
The transformation point refers to the specific location from which an object or shape is rotated or scaled. It is the central point around which the transformation occurs, determining the axis and direction of rotation or scaling. This point is crucial in defining the position and behavior of the object during the transformation process.

### A white box with a diagonal red line through it means...

• A.

... no color.

• B.

... do not enter.

• C.

... no data.

A. ... no color.
Explanation
A white box with a diagonal red line through it typically represents the absence of color. This symbol is commonly used to indicate that something is colorless or lacks any specific hue. It is often seen in situations where color coding is used, such as on maps or in diagrams, to distinguish between different categories or elements. The diagonal red line serves as a visual indicator that color should not be applied to the area or object represented by the white box.
