• A.

Straight edges

• B.

Paths

• C.

Diagonals

• D.

Connectors

B. Paths

### What tool is used to save a view of the artboard?

• A.

Zoom tool

• B.

Place command

• C.

New view command

• D.

Join command

C. New view command
Explanation
The new view command is used to save a view of the artboard. This command allows the user to create multiple views of the same artboard with different zoom levels, positions, and settings. It is useful when working on complex projects that require different perspectives or when comparing different versions of the same design. By saving multiple views, the user can easily switch between them without having to manually adjust the zoom or position each time.

### A ________ point is when two straight segments are united.

• A.

Corner

• B.

Anchor

• C.

Smooth

• D.

Joint

A. Corner
Explanation
A corner point is when two straight segments are united. This term is commonly used in geometry to describe the point where two lines or line segments meet at an angle. It represents a change in direction and is often associated with sharp angles or turns.

### What tool is used to perfect points and segments?

• A.

Direct selection tool

• B.

Zoom tool

• C.

Paint tool

• D.

Live trace

A. Direct selection tool
Explanation
The direct selection tool is used to perfect points and segments. This tool allows users to select individual anchor points or line segments in a path and make precise adjustments to their position or shape. By using the direct selection tool, users can easily manipulate and refine the paths in their design, ensuring that points and segments are positioned exactly as desired. The other options listed, such as the zoom tool, paint tool, and live trace, do not have the same functionality or purpose as the direct selection tool in perfecting points and segments.

• A.

The vertical axis

• B.

The diagonal axis

• C.

The horizontal axis

• D.

The vertical and horizontal axes

B. The diagonal axis
Explanation
The average command is used to align two or more points on the vertical axis, the horizontal axis, and the vertical and horizontal axes. However, it is not used to align points on the diagonal axis.

### In order to draw a curved path, you must click and drag the pen tool.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
To draw a curved path, you need to click and drag the pen tool. This is because the pen tool allows you to create anchor points and adjust their handles to create smooth curves. By clicking and dragging, you can control the direction and shape of the curve, resulting in a curved path.

### Corner points can join all of the following except:

• A.

Two straight segments

• B.

One straight and one curved segment

• C.

Two curved segments

• D.

Two open paths

D. Two open paths
Explanation
Corner points can join two straight segments, one straight and one curved segment, and two curved segments. However, they cannot join two open paths. Open paths refer to paths that do not form a closed shape or loop. Since corner points are used to connect and change the direction of paths, they cannot be used to join two open paths as there is no clear direction or shape to connect them.

### The Convert Anchor Point Tool can only convert smooth points to corner points.

• A.

True

• B.

False

### What command is used to import a scanned image into Illustrator?

• A.

Move command

• B.

Place command

• C.

Import command

• D.

New command

B. Place command
Explanation

### Typographic attributes refers to fill color, stroke color, and stroke weight.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement is false because typographic attributes do not refer to fill color, stroke color, and stroke weight. Typographic attributes typically refer to characteristics such as font size, font style, and letter spacing, which are used to define the appearance of text in a document or design. Fill color, stroke color, and stroke weight are more commonly associated with graphic design elements such as shapes and lines.

### The stacking order includes new elements appearing in front of older elements.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The given statement is true. In the stacking order, new elements are placed in front of older elements. This means that when new elements are added to a stack, they are placed on top of the existing elements. As a result, the newer elements will be accessed or removed first before the older elements. This behavior is typical in stack data structures where the last element added is the first one to be removed.

### ________ are applied to the end of stroke paths.

• A.

Joins

• B.

Anchors

• C.

Dashed lines

• D.

Caps

D. Caps
Explanation
Caps are applied to the end of stroke paths. Caps refer to the decorative or functional endings that can be added to the ends of lines or strokes. They can be used to create different effects such as rounded, square, or projecting ends. Caps are commonly used in graphic design and typography to enhance the appearance of strokes and lines.

### The default miter limit is ________ times the stroke weight.

• A.

2

• B.

4

• C.

6

• D.

8

B. 4
Explanation
The default miter limit refers to the maximum length of the point at which the outer edges of two lines meet. It is measured as a multiple of the stroke weight. In this case, the correct answer is 4, indicating that the miter limit is four times the stroke weight.

• A.

Dashed stroke

• B.

Round stroke

• C.

Pseudo stroke

• D.

Imaginary stroke

C. Pseudo stroke

### Live trace feature traces a bitmap image and converts it to a _______________.

• A.

.gif

• B.

Vector graphic

• C.

Pixelated image

• D.

.pdf

B. Vector graphic
Explanation
The live trace feature in graphic design software allows for the tracing of a bitmap image, which means it converts the image into a vector graphic. A vector graphic is made up of mathematical equations and can be scaled to any size without losing quality. This is in contrast to a pixelated image, which becomes blurry and distorted when enlarged. Therefore, the correct answer is "vector graphic".

### When using the live paint tool, Illustrator uses object types called __________ or __________.

• A.

Edges; regions

• B.

Regions; edges

Sections; regions

B. Regions; edges
Explanation
When using the live paint tool in Illustrator, the software uses object types called regions and edges. This means that when using the live paint tool, you can fill in regions with color and define the boundaries of those regions using edges. This allows for more precise and controlled coloring within your artwork.
