    Correct Answer
    B. Leading
    Explanation
    Leading refers to the space between lines of text. It determines the vertical distance between each line of text and helps in improving readability and legibility. A larger leading value increases the space between lines, while a smaller leading value reduces the space. Proper leading ensures that the text is not cramped together and allows for comfortable reading.

    A. Tracking
    Explanation
    The correct answer is tracking. Tracking refers to the adjustment of the space between all the letters in a word or a block of text. It is used to improve readability and aesthetics by ensuring consistent spacing between characters. Kerning, on the other hand, refers to the adjustment of space between specific pairs of letters, while leading refers to the vertical space between lines of text.

    B. Kerning
    Explanation
    Kerning refers to the adjustment of space between individual letters in a word. In this case, the question is asking for the term that specifically refers to the space between only two letters. Kerning is the correct answer because it focuses on the adjustment of space between individual letters, rather than the overall spacing or the space between lines of text (leading).
