    In compression, Lossy means...

    • A.

      Where the compressed data can be digitized to return an different copy of the original.

    • B.

      Where the compressed data can be uncompressed to return an identical copy of the original.

    • C.

      - where some quality is lost to achieve greater compression but the loss is not noticeable.

    Correct Answer
    C. - where some quality is lost to achieve greater compression but the loss is not noticeable.
    Explanation
    Lossy compression refers to a method of compressing data where some quality is intentionally sacrificed in order to achieve a higher level of compression. This means that during the compression process, certain information is discarded or altered, resulting in a smaller file size. However, the loss of quality is not easily noticeable to the human eye or ear. Lossy compression is commonly used for multimedia files such as images, audio, and video, where a slight degradation in quality can be tolerated in exchange for a significant reduction in file size.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    JPG files are lossy, meaning that they use a compression algorithm that discards some of the image data in order to reduce file size. This compression can result in a loss of image quality, especially when the file is repeatedly edited and saved. Therefore, the statement "JPG files are lossy" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    AVI files are....

    • A.

      Lossy

    • B.

      Lossless

    • C.

      Both Lossy and Lossless

    Correct Answer
    C. Both Lossy and Lossless
    Explanation
    AVI files are capable of supporting both lossy and lossless compression. Lossy compression reduces file size by discarding some data, sacrificing some quality in the process. On the other hand, lossless compression retains all the original data without any quality loss, resulting in larger file sizes. AVI files can be created using either compression method depending on the user's preference or the specific requirements of the application.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Current video CODECs such as AVCHD (H.264) are capable of compressing video up to 100 to 1 while maintaining almost no loss in quality. This means that the file size of the compressed video is significantly smaller compared to the original video, making it easier to store and transmit. Despite the high compression ratio, the quality of the video remains intact, ensuring a visually pleasing viewing experience. Therefore, the statement "True" is the correct answer.

    • B.

      65,536 tones of colour

    • C.

      256 tones of colour

    Correct Answer
    A. 16.7 million tones of colour..
    Explanation
    24 bits is equal to 16.7 million tones of color because each bit represents a binary digit, which can have two possible values (0 or 1). Therefore, with 24 bits, there are a total of 2^24 possible combinations, which equals approximately 16.7 million. This means that with 24 bits, it is possible to represent 16.7 million different colors.

      Digital per inch

    • B.

      Dots per inch...

    • C.

      Depth per inch

    Correct Answer
    B. Dots per inch...
    Explanation
    Dots per inch (DPI) refers to the number of dots that can be placed in a linear inch of an image or printed document. It is a measure of the resolution or quality of an image, indicating how many dots or pixels are used to create the image. A higher DPI means a higher resolution and more detail in the image. Therefore, the correct answer is "Dots per inch."

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    CMYK colours fade to black, are transparent and is called.....

    • A.

      Additive colour

    • B.

      Subtractive colour

    • C.

      Digital colour

    Correct Answer
    B. Subtractive colour
    Explanation
    CMYK colors are used in printing and are considered subtractive colors because they work by subtracting wavelengths of light to create the desired color. In the CMYK color model, cyan, magenta, and yellow inks are mixed together to absorb specific wavelengths of light, resulting in the perception of different colors. As more ink is added, the colors become darker and eventually fade to black. This is why CMYK colors are often used for printing purposes, where the goal is to reproduce colors by subtracting light rather than adding it.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    RGB colour is for SCREEN display....

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The RGB color model is indeed used for screen display. RGB stands for red, green, and blue, which are the primary colors of light. In this model, different intensities of these three colors are combined to create a wide range of colors on a screen. This is different from the CMYK color model, which is used for printing, where cyan, magenta, yellow, and black are used. Therefore, the statement "RGB color is for screen display" is true.
