    Sally has cable internet, but she would like to have wireless internet in her home. What device would she need to enable wireless internet?

    • A.

      Modem

    • B.

      Wireless Receiver

    • C.

      Wireless Server

    • D.

      Wireless Router

    Correct Answer
    D. Wireless Router
    Explanation
    Sally would need a wireless router to enable wireless internet in her home. A modem is used to connect to the internet, but it does not provide wireless connectivity. A wireless receiver is used to receive wireless signals, but it does not create a wireless network. A wireless server is not a commonly used term and may not exist as a standalone device. A wireless router, on the other hand, connects to the modem and creates a wireless network, allowing multiple devices to connect to the internet wirelessly.

    Fiber Optic cables use light signals to send and receive data.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Fiber optic cables use light signals to send and receive data. This is because these cables are made up of thin strands of glass or plastic that transmit data using pulses of light. These light signals travel at a very high speed, allowing for fast and efficient data transmission. Unlike traditional copper cables, fiber optic cables are not affected by electromagnetic interference, making them ideal for long-distance communication and high-speed internet connections.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement "The Internet is a network of networks that spans the entire world" is true. The Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that allows communication and information sharing across the world. It consists of millions of private, public, academic, business, and government networks, all linked together to provide various services such as email, web browsing, file sharing, and online gaming. The Internet has no central governing body and is constantly expanding and evolving to connect more devices and networks globally.

    Bluetooth is a type of internet connection.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Bluetooth is not a type of internet connection. It is a wireless technology that allows devices to connect and communicate with each other over short distances. While Bluetooth can be used to connect devices to the internet indirectly (e.g., by connecting a Bluetooth-enabled device to a smartphone with internet access), it is not a direct form of internet connection. Bluetooth technology operates on radio waves and is primarily used for connecting devices such as smartphones, laptops, and speakers.
