Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Why should you not forward virus warnings?          

    • A.

      You may spread the virus.

    • B.

      They are generally hoaxes.

    • C.

      Someone could get hurt.

    • D.

      No one cares anyway.

    Correct Answer
    B. They are generally hoaxes.
    Explanation
    Forwarding virus warnings can be harmful because they are generally hoaxes. Many virus warnings that circulate through emails or social media are often false alarms or exaggerated claims about potential threats. These hoaxes can cause unnecessary panic and anxiety among recipients. Moreover, forwarding such warnings without verifying their authenticity can contribute to the spread of misinformation and create unnecessary fear. It is important to exercise caution and verify the credibility of virus warnings before forwarding them to others.

  • 2. 

    If you become uncomfortable with anything you read or see on-line, what should you do?

    • A.

      Ignore it. You are probably just paranoid.

    • B.

      Call a friend and ask his/her opinion.

    • C.

      Tell your parents or teacher.

    • D.

      Scream and run out of the room.

    Correct Answer
    C. Tell your parents or teacher.
    Explanation
    If you become uncomfortable with anything you read or see online, it is important to tell your parents or teacher. They can provide guidance and support in dealing with the situation. Ignoring it or assuming paranoia may not address the issue or help you feel safe. Consulting a friend's opinion may not always be reliable, as they may not have the necessary expertise to handle the situation appropriately. Screaming and running out of the room is not a constructive or effective way to deal with online discomfort.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    If you type in all UPPERCASE, it appears that you are doing what?

    • A.

      A bad typist.

    • B.

      Don't know how to turn off the "caps lock".

    • C.

      Shouting.

    • D.

      Sad.

    Correct Answer
    C. Shouting.
    Explanation
    Typing in all UPPERCASE is commonly perceived as shouting in written communication. Using uppercase letters conveys a louder and more intense tone, similar to shouting in spoken language. This is because uppercase letters are visually more prominent and can be interpreted as an attempt to emphasize or draw attention to the text. Therefore, typing in all UPPERCASE indicates that the person is shouting in their written message.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What is the harm in copying music from the Internet?

    • A.

      It is stealing.

    • B.

      None. Everyone does it.

    • C.

      It is only wrong if you get caught.

    • D.

      Entertainers make too much money, anyway.

    Correct Answer
    A. It is stealing.
    Explanation
    Copying music from the Internet without proper authorization or payment is considered stealing because it infringes upon the rights of the artists and creators who own the copyrighted material. When individuals copy and distribute music without permission, they are essentially taking away the potential income that the artists would have received from their work. This deprives the creators of their rightful earnings and undermines the value of their artistic contributions.

      Fight fire with fire.

    • C.

      Don't take any bull.

    • D.

      Say what you think. E-mails are private.

    Correct Answer
    A. Treat others as you wish to be treated.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Treat others as you wish to be treated." This is a good rule to follow when typing an email because it promotes respect, empathy, and professionalism in communication. By treating others with the same courtesy and consideration that you would like to receive, you can maintain positive relationships, avoid misunderstandings, and foster a healthy and productive work environment.

      It is never a good idea.

    Correct Answer
    B. Only if your parents go with you.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Only if your parents go with you." This answer emphasizes the importance of safety when meeting someone from online. It suggests that having a trusted adult accompany you can help ensure your well-being and protect you from potential risks or dangers.
