      G and j

    Correct Answer
    A. F and j
    Explanation
    The correct answer is f and j. In touch typing, the home row is the row where your fingers rest when you are not typing. The pointer fingers are supposed to stay on the f and j keys, which have small raised bumps on them to help you easily locate them without looking at the keyboard. This positioning allows for efficient and accurate typing as it helps you maintain proper hand placement and easily reach the surrounding keys.

  • 10. 

    When you are capitalizing a letter, should you use the caps lock key or the shift key?

    • A.

      Caps lock

    • B.

      Shift key

    Correct Answer
    B. Shift key
    Explanation
    When capitalizing a letter, the correct method is to use the shift key. The shift key allows you to temporarily change the letter case while typing. On the other hand, the caps lock key is used to toggle between lowercase and uppercase letters, meaning that once it is activated, all letters will be capitalized until it is turned off. Therefore, using the shift key is the appropriate choice when capitalizing a single letter.
