### What is the area bounded by a solid line in which your artwork is created?

• A.

• B.

Title bar

• C.

Artboard

• D.

Scratch area

C. Artboard
Explanation
The area bounded by a solid line in which your artwork is created is called the artboard. The artboard is a designated space within a software program where you can create and manipulate your artwork. It acts as a canvas or workspace for your designs, allowing you to arrange and organize your elements within its boundaries. The artboard provides a clear boundary for your artwork and helps you visualize how your design will appear within a defined area.

### Which type of images are created using pixels?

• A.

Vector grapHics

• B.

Bitmap images

• C.

Pretty images

• D.

Resolution-independent images

B. Bitmap images
Explanation
Bitmap images are created using pixels. In a bitmap image, each pixel represents a specific color or shade, and when combined, they form the complete image. Bitmap images are resolution-dependent, meaning that they have a fixed number of pixels and their quality can be affected when resized or scaled. Unlike vector graphics, which use mathematical equations to define shapes and lines, bitmap images are made up of a grid of pixels, making them suitable for representing detailed and realistic images.

### The graphics created in Adobe Illustrator are...?

• A.

Vector grapHics

• B.

Bitmap images

• C.

Lines

• D.

Paths

A. Vector grapHics
Explanation
The graphics created in Adobe Illustrator are vector graphics. Vector graphics are composed of mathematical equations that define shapes, lines, and colors. They are resolution-independent and can be scaled up or down without losing quality. This makes them ideal for creating logos, illustrations, and other designs that need to be resized or printed at various sizes. Unlike bitmap images, which are made up of pixels and can become pixelated when resized, vector graphics maintain their sharpness and clarity. In Adobe Illustrator, users can create and manipulate vector graphics using tools such as the Pen tool, Shape tools, and the Pathfinder panel.

Rate this question:

• 4.

• A.

A professional illustration software application

• B.

Just as good as pHotoshop!

• C.

Focused on manipulating images

• D.

Not used to create complez grapHics

A. A professional illustration software application
Explanation
Adobe Illustrator is a professional illustration software application that is widely used by graphic designers, artists, and illustrators. It offers a wide range of tools and features specifically designed for creating and editing vector graphics, making it a powerful tool for creating complex and detailed illustrations. While Adobe Photoshop is also a popular software for image manipulation, Illustrator is specifically focused on creating and editing illustrations, making it the go-to choice for professionals in the field.

### CMYK color is the color mode used for print projects.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
CMYK color mode, which stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Key (black), is indeed used for print projects. Unlike RGB color mode, which is used for digital displays, CMYK is specifically designed for printing purposes. In CMYK, colors are created by overlapping different percentages of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black inks. This color mode ensures that the printed output matches the intended colors more accurately. Therefore, the given answer "True" is correct.

### RGB stands for red, green, and black.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement is false because RGB stands for red, green, and blue, not black. RGB is a color model used for creating and displaying images on electronic devices. It represents colors by combining different intensities of red, green, and blue light.

### When creating a graphic for a mobile phone, what unit of measure should be used?

• A.

Picas

• B.

Inches

• C.

Feet

• D.

Yards

A. Picas
Explanation
When creating a graphic for a mobile phone, picas should be used as the unit of measure. Picas are commonly used in graphic design and are especially suited for digital media as they allow for precise measurements and scaling. Unlike inches, feet, or yards, picas provide a more accurate representation of size and layout on a smaller screen, making it the ideal unit of measure for mobile phone graphics.

### The scratch area prints when printing out a design done with Illustrator.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The scratch area does not print when printing out a design done with Illustrator. The scratch area is a temporary workspace where users can experiment and make changes to their design without affecting the final output. It is not meant to be included in the final print and is therefore not visible when printing.

### Fundamental transformation tools include all of the following except:

• A.

Scale

• B.

Rotate

• C.

Reflect

• D.

Invert

D. Invert
Explanation
The question asks for a tool that is not included in the fundamental transformation tools. The options given are scale, rotate, reflect, and invert. The correct answer is "invert" because it is not a fundamental transformation tool. Inverting an object involves flipping it upside down or reversing its orientation, which is not a basic transformation like scaling, rotating, or reflecting.

### Illustrator creates resolution-independent images.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Illustrator is a vector-based software that allows users to create resolution-independent images. Unlike raster-based images, which are made up of pixels and can lose quality when scaled up or down, vector-based images in Illustrator are created using mathematical equations and can be scaled to any size without losing quality. This makes Illustrator a popular choice for creating logos, illustrations, and other graphics that need to be used across different mediums and sizes.

### Which tool allows you to select individual anchor points or single paths of an object?

• A.

Selection tool

• B.

Guides

• C.

Direct selection tool

• D.

Anchor tool

C. Direct selection tool
Explanation
The direct selection tool allows you to select individual anchor points or single paths of an object. This tool is useful when you want to manipulate specific parts of an object without affecting the entire object. It gives you more control and precision in editing and adjusting the shape of an object.

### The fill button is what color by default?

• A.

Black

• B.

White

• C.

Purple

• D.

Green

B. White

The fill button is white by default because white is a neutral color that is commonly used as a default color in many applications. It provides a clean and blank canvas for users to start with, allowing them to choose and apply their desired colors later. Additionally, white is often associated with simplicity and clarity, making it a suitable default color for the fill button.

### Anchor points and line segments together re referred to as _____________.

• A.

Segments

• B.

Paths

• C.

Lines

• D.

GrapHics

B. Paths
Explanation
Anchor points and line segments together are referred to as paths. Paths are used in graphic design and computer graphics to create complex shapes and lines. Anchor points are the points that define the shape of a path, and line segments connect these anchor points to form the path. Therefore, the correct answer is "Paths".

### ________________ are colored squares used to make bitmap images.

• A.

Pixels

• B.

Picas

• C.

Resolution

• D.

Paths

A. Pixels
Explanation
Pixels are tiny colored squares that are used to create bitmap images. They are the smallest unit of measurement in a digital image and are responsible for creating the visual representation of the image. Each pixel contains information about its color and position, and when combined with other pixels, they form the complete image. Therefore, pixels are the correct answer as they accurately describe the colored squares used in bitmap images.
