      Mp3

    Correct Answer
    C. Jpeg
    Explanation
    The JPEG file format is primarily used for compressing and storing digital images. While it handles images well, it does not handle text well because it is a lossy compression format. This means that some information is lost during compression, including fine details and sharp edges, which can make text appear blurry or distorted. On the other hand, file formats like TIFF, GIF, and MP3 are not specifically designed for handling text, but they do not have the same lossy compression as JPEG, making them more suitable for storing text-based content.

    Uncompressed audio and video files require less memory than compressed files.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Compressed audio and video files require less memory than uncompressed files. Compression reduces the file size by removing redundant or unnecessary data, resulting in a smaller file size. Uncompressed files, on the other hand, retain all the original data and therefore require more memory to store.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    A lossy photo or video format means that some data is eliminated to reduce file size.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Lossy photo or video formats are designed to reduce the file size by eliminating some data. This means that when a photo or video is saved in a lossy format, certain details and information are discarded or compressed to make the file smaller. This compression technique allows for more efficient storage and transmission of media files, but it also results in a loss of quality compared to the original uncompressed version. Therefore, the statement "A lossy photo or video format means that some data is eliminated to reduce file size" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Lossy files require more memory.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Lossy files do not require more memory. In fact, lossy files are compressed files that are specifically designed to reduce the file size by permanently removing certain data or details that are considered less important. This compression technique allows lossy files to take up less memory space compared to their original uncompressed versions. Therefore, the statement that lossy files require more memory is false.

    A photograph saved as a GIF or PNG will be larger than a photograph saved as a JPEG.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Photographs saved as GIF or PNG formats tend to be larger than those saved as JPEG due to the differences in compression techniques. JPEG uses lossy compression, which reduces file size by discarding certain details and information. On the other hand, GIF and PNG use lossless compression, which preserves all the data but results in larger file sizes. Hence, it is true that GIF or PNG photographs will be larger than JPEG photographs.
