### What are the 3 Boolean operators?

• A.

Or

• B.

If

• C.

Not

• D.

Then

• E.

And

A. Or
C. Not
E. And
Explanation
The three Boolean operators are "Or," "Not," and "And." These operators are used in logic and computer programming to manipulate Boolean values (true or false). The "Or" operator returns true if at least one of the operands is true. The "Not" operator returns the opposite of the operand's value. The "And" operator returns true only if both operands are true. These operators are fundamental in constructing logical expressions and making decisions based on conditions.

### In determining the authority of an Internet site, you should look for:

• A.

Author’s credentials

• B.

Preferred URL (like .edu, .gov, .org)

• C.

Sentence or paragraph stating that the information is authoritative

A. Author’s credentials
B. Preferred URL (like .edu, .gov, .org)
Explanation
When determining the authority of an Internet site, looking for the author's credentials is important because it helps establish the expertise and credibility of the person providing the information. Additionally, the preferred URL can also indicate the reliability of the site. URLs ending with .edu, .gov, or .org are generally considered more trustworthy as they are associated with educational institutions, government organizations, or non-profit organizations respectively. However, the presence of a sentence or paragraph stating that the information is authoritative is not necessarily crucial as it can be easily manipulated or falsely claimed.

• A.

Gangs AND violence

• B.

Gangs OR violence

• C.

Gangs AND NOT violence

A. Gangs AND violence

Book of Toni Morrison’s poems

• E.

Biography of Abraham Lincoln

B. Copy of the United States Constitution
C. Book of Toni Morrison’s poems
Explanation
Primary research sources are original materials that provide firsthand information or direct evidence about a topic. In this case, the copy of the United States Constitution is a primary research source because it is a direct and original document that contains the actual text of the Constitution. Similarly, the book of Toni Morrison's poems is also a primary research source as it contains the original works of the poet. The other options, such as the book on constitutional law, book interpreting Toni Morrison's poems, and biography of Abraham Lincoln, are not primary research sources as they are secondary sources that provide analysis, interpretation, or commentary on the original material.
