    The computer network that began the Internet was called ARPAnet.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    ARPAnet was indeed the computer network that started the Internet. It was created by the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) of the United States Department of Defense in the late 1960s. ARPAnet was the first network to use packet switching, a method that allows data to be divided into small packets and sent independently over the network, and it laid the foundation for the development of the modern Internet. Over time, ARPAnet evolved and expanded, eventually becoming the global network that we now know as the Internet.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The ARPAnet consisted of four computers at four universities on the west coast of the United States.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    During its initial development in the late 1960s, the ARPAnet was indeed a network that connected four computers located at different universities on the west coast of the United States. These universities included the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Stanford Research Institute (SRI), University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), and the University of Utah. This network laid the foundation for the modern internet and was the precursor to the global network we use today.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    A LAN is usually confined to a single building or connected buildings.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A LAN, or Local Area Network, is a network that is typically limited to a single building or a group of interconnected buildings. It allows devices within this limited area to share resources, such as files and printers, and communicate with each other. This contrasts with a WAN (Wide Area Network), which connects multiple LANs over a larger geographic area. Therefore, the statement that a LAN is usually confined to a single building or connected buildings is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Communications between a LAN in a building on the east coast or the United States and a LAN in a building on the west coast of the United States might be accomplished through a WAN.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Communications between a LAN in a building on the east coast and a LAN in a building on the west coast of the United States might be accomplished through a WAN because a WAN (Wide Area Network) is designed to connect geographically dispersed networks over a large area. Since the two LANs are located on opposite coasts, they would require a WAN to establish a connection and enable communication between them.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    A network location of a Web page is a URL.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because a network location of a web page is indeed represented by a URL (Uniform Resource Locator). A URL is a specific web address that identifies the location of a web page or any other resource on the internet. It consists of various components such as the protocol (e.g., http or https), the domain name, and the specific path to the resource. Therefore, a URL serves as the network location for accessing a web page.
