    • D.

      Both B and C

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. Both B and C
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Both B and C". HTML tags are not alarms at the store, but rather code that is used to structure and format content on a webpage. They tell the web browser how to display the content and help in creating the visual layout of the webpage. So, option B is correct as HTML tags are responsible for how the web browser knows what to display. Option C is also correct as HTML tags are not alarms at the store.

      Both on the browser and on the web page itself.

    • D.

      Only in the code, it doesn't display in the browser at all.

    Correct Answer
    B. On the browser page, but not the web page
    Explanation
    The text of the title tag is displayed on the browser page, but not on the web page itself. The title tag is an HTML element that specifies the title of a web page. It is displayed in the title bar of the browser window or in the tab of the browser. However, it is not visible on the actual content of the web page when it is loaded.

      comment goes here

    Correct Answer
    A.
    Explanation
    To create a comment tag, you use the syntax . Comments are used to add notes or explanations within the code that are not interpreted or displayed by the browser. They are useful for providing information to other developers or for temporarily disabling a section of code without deleting it. In this case, the correct answer is the given syntax because it correctly represents the comment tag in HTML.

    The different levels of headings in HTML are represented by numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.

These heading levels are used to structure and organize the content of the webpage, with higher levels indicating more important and larger headings.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is that "" creates a blank line before the next row of text. This is because the "" tag is used to insert a line break within a single paragraph, which means it only creates a line break without creating a new paragraph. On the other hand, "" is used to create a new paragraph, which results in a blank line before the next row of text.

    Correct Answer
    A. A text editor & a web browser
    Explanation
    To create webpages, you need a text editor to write the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code that makes up the webpage. A text editor allows you to create and edit the code. Once the webpage is created, you need a web browser to view the webpage. A web browser interprets the code and displays the webpage with all its elements and functionality. Therefore, the correct answer is a text editor and a web browser.

    You have a situation where you want to accept some input from the user that is usually 1-2 paragraphs long. Which of the following form elements would you choose?

    • A.

      Textbox

    • B.

      Drop-down list

    • C.

      Textarea

    • D.

      Button

    Correct Answer
    C. Textarea
    Explanation
    The correct answer is textarea. A textarea element is the most suitable form element for accepting input from the user that is usually 1-2 paragraphs long. Unlike a textbox, which is typically used for single-line input, a textarea allows the user to input multiple lines of text. A drop-down list is used for selecting a single option from a list, and a button is used for triggering an action. Therefore, a textarea is the most appropriate choice for this situation.
