    Explanation
    To create a header in a document, you would choose the "view" menu and then select the "header and footer" option. This option allows you to access the header and footer section of the document where you can add and customize the header.

This is because a font refers to the specific design and style of characters, including letters, numbers, and symbols, within a typeface. It determines how the text appears visually, such as the size, weight, and style of the characters. Fonts can vary in terms of their appearance, ranging from serif fonts (with small decorative lines at the ends of characters) to sans-serif fonts (without these lines).
