• 1.

### This image is called the:

• A.

Terminal

• B.

Off-page Connector

• C.

On-page connector

• D.

Decision Symbol

B. Off-page Connector
Explanation
The symbol is used to connect flow-lines on separate pages. The letter in the center of the symbol indicates that the flowchart will continue onto the next page where a matching symbol (and letter) has been placed.

Rate this question:

• 2.

### What is the purpose of this symbol?

• A.

Indicates the beginning or end of the flowchart (i.e. Start, Quit, or End).

• B.

Indicates an action or step in the flowchart process.

• C.

A subroutine by user request, where the user is able to request info, a particular subroutine etc. from the program

### What is a diagrammatic representation that illustrates the sequence of operations to be performed to get the solution of a problem?

• A.

Algorithm

• B.

Flowchart

• C.

Pseudocode

• D.

Programming

B. Flowchart
Explanation
A flowchart is a diagrammatic representation that illustrates the sequence of operations to be performed to get the solution of a problem. It uses different shapes and arrows to depict the steps and decisions involved in the problem-solving process. Flowcharts are commonly used in computer programming and other fields to visually represent algorithms and processes, making it easier to understand and follow the logical flow of operations.
