Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Consider the following code: Dim n as Integer = -8 n = 100 / n + 4 What is the value of n after the code is run?

    • A.

      -8.5

    • B.

      16.5

    • C.

      -8

    • D.

      16

    • E.

      -25

    Correct Answer
    A. -8.5
    Explanation
    The value of n after the code is run is -8.5. In the code, n is initially set to -8. Then, the expression 100 / n + 4 is evaluated. Since n is -8, the division operation results in -12.5. Adding 4 to -12.5 gives us -8.5, which is the final value of n.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Consider the following code: Dim n as Integer = -8 n = 100 / (n + 4) What is the value of n after the code is run?

    • A.

      -8

    • B.

      -8.5

    • C.

      14

    • D.

      14.5

    • E.

      -25

    Correct Answer
    E. -25
    Explanation
    The code assigns the value of -8 to the variable n. Then, it calculates the expression 100 / (-8 + 4), which simplifies to 100 / -4, resulting in -25. Therefore, the value of n after the code is run is -25.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which of the following expressions might be used in a calculation to determine leap year?

    • A.

      Year - 2000

    • B.

      Year / 2000

    • C.

      Year / 4

    • D.

      Year Mod 4

    • E.

      Year \ 4

    Correct Answer
    D. Year Mod 4
    Explanation
    The expression "year Mod 4" can be used to determine if a year is a leap year or not. In this expression, "Mod" represents the modulus operator, which calculates the remainder when the year is divided by 4. If the remainder is 0, then the year is divisible by 4 and is a leap year. If the remainder is not 0, then the year is not divisible by 4 and is not a leap year.

    The most important information on a form should be in the upper-left corner of the form.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The upper-left corner of a form is considered the prime real estate because it is the first area that the eye is naturally drawn to when reading a document. Placing important information in this location ensures that it will be easily noticed and not overlooked. By placing crucial details in the upper-left corner, it increases the chances of users quickly and efficiently processing the information on the form. This layout principle is based on the natural reading pattern of most cultures, where the eye starts from the top left and moves to the right and down.

    The arithmetic operators *, /, + and - all have the same level of precedence.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The arithmetic operators *, /, +, and - do not have the same level of precedence. In mathematics, multiplication and division have a higher precedence than addition and subtraction. This means that when an expression contains both multiplication/division and addition/subtraction, the multiplication/division operations will be performed first. Therefore, the correct answer is False.
