    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    The first part of a URL (http) describes the resource used to retreive a Web resource.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The first part of a URL, which is typically "http", is known as the protocol and it describes the resource that is being used to retrieve a web resource. This protocol is used to establish a connection between the client (web browser) and the server, allowing the client to request and receive the desired web resource. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    An absolute path is what a server needs to locate the file being requested.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    An absolute path is a complete and specific file path that includes the full directory structure, starting from the root directory. When a server receives a request for a file, it needs the absolute path to accurately locate and retrieve the file. This is because the absolute path provides the exact location of the file within the directory structure, ensuring that the server can find and deliver the requested file correctly. Therefore, the statement that an absolute path is what a server needs to locate the file being requested is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    Which format is best for high quality Web photos?

    • A.

      TIF

    • B.

      GIF

    • C.

      JPEG

    • D.

      QRL

    Correct Answer
    C. JPEG
    Explanation
    JPEG is the best format for high-quality web photos because it offers a good balance between file size and image quality. It uses lossy compression, which means that some image data is discarded to reduce file size, but the compression is optimized in a way that minimizes noticeable loss of quality. This makes JPEG ideal for web photos where smaller file sizes are important for faster loading times, while still maintaining a high level of image detail and color accuracy. TIF is a large file format primarily used for print and professional applications, GIF is more suitable for simple graphics and animations, and QRL is not a recognized image format.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    A lossy format means the file does not get rid of data and lose quality.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Lossless formats do not get rid of data and lose quality.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Which formats are examples of lossless  files?

    • A.

      JPEG & GIF

    • B.

      GIF & TIF

    • C.

      RGB & CMYK

    • D.

      PNG & JPEG

    Correct Answer
    B. GIF & TIF
    Explanation
    GIF and TIF are examples of lossless file formats because they both use compression techniques that preserve all the original data and do not result in any loss of quality. JPEG and PNG, on the other hand, are examples of lossy file formats as they use compression techniques that discard some data in order to reduce file size, which can result in a loss of quality. RGB and CMYK, mentioned in the options, are not file formats but color models used in digital imaging.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    Even though a GIF is lossless, it is a compressed format (Reduces files size and does not use much memory).

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) is a lossless image format, meaning it does not lose any image quality when compressed. However, it is still a compressed format, which means it reduces file size by eliminating unnecessary data. This compression allows GIFs to be easily shared and viewed on the internet without using excessive memory. Therefore, the statement that "Even though a GIF is lossless, it is a compressed format" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    JPEG does not support transparency.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) is a commonly used image format that is primarily designed for storing and compressing photographic images. Unlike other image formats such as PNG or GIF, JPEG does not have built-in support for transparency. This means that when an image is saved in JPEG format, any transparent areas will be filled with a solid color, typically white. Therefore, the statement "JPEG does not support transparency" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    GIF does not support transparency.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

    • A.

      True

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation

      <Body>

    • D.

      </Body>

    Correct Answer
    C. <Body>
    Explanation
    The correct answer is . This tag is used to define the main content of the webpage that is visible to the viewer or user. It contains all the elements and text that are displayed on the webpage, such as headings, paragraphs, images, links, etc. The opening tag marks the beginning of this section, while the closing tag marks the end.

    Rate this question:

  • 28. 

    You should begin a paragraph with ....<p> and end the paragraph with .....</p>

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Beginning a paragraph with "" and ending it with "" is the correct way to structure a paragraph in HTML. The "" tag is used to define a paragraph in HTML, and it indicates the start of a new paragraph. The closing tag "" is used to mark the end of the paragraph. This is a standard practice in web development and is necessary for proper formatting and organization of content on a webpage.

    Rate this question:

  • 29. 

    What is the tag that begins a list of items?

    • A.

      Il

    • B.

      Ls

    • C.

      Ol or ul

    • D.

      Ul or ls

    Correct Answer
    C. Ol or ul
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "ol or ul" because these are the HTML tags used to create a list of items. "ol" stands for ordered list and is used when the items in the list have a specific order or sequence. "ul" stands for unordered list and is used when the items in the list do not have a specific order. Both tags are used to structure and organize content on a webpage.

    Rate this question:

  • 30. 

    Why is it not a good idea to use the element width and height attributes to resize a large photo on a Web page?

    • A.

      The browser will not download a photo that has been resized.

    • B.

      The browser will still have to work hard, because the image being resized is still large.

    • C.

      You must use the element with photos.

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. The browser will still have to work hard, because the image being resized is still large.
    Explanation
    Using the width and height attributes of the element to resize a large photo on a web page is not a good idea because the browser will still have to work hard to resize the image, even though it is still large. This means that the browser will have to use additional resources to resize the image, resulting in slower loading times and potentially affecting the performance of the webpage. It is better to resize the image before uploading it to the web page to ensure optimal loading and performance.

    Correct Answer
    B. FTP
    Explanation
    FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is the correct answer for this question. FTP is a standard network protocol used for transferring files from one host to another over a TCP-based network, such as the internet. It provides a simple and efficient way to exchange files between computers, allowing users to upload, download, and manage files remotely.
