Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following is not a legal document?

    • A.

      Lease

    • B.

      Specification

    • C.

      Will

    • D.

      Deed

    Correct Answer
    B. Specification
    Explanation
    A specification is not a legal document because it is a detailed description of the requirements, dimensions, and materials for a particular project or product. While specifications are important in various industries, they do not hold the same legal weight as a lease, will, or deed. Legal documents such as leases establish contractual agreements for the rental of property, wills outline the distribution of assets after death, and deeds transfer ownership of property. Therefore, a specification is not a legal document.

    Legal documents use margins which are

    • A.

      1.0" left, 1.5" right

    • B.

      1.0" left, 1.0" right

    • C.

      0.5" left, 1.5" right

    • D.

      1.5" left, 0.5" right

    Correct Answer
    D. 1.5" left, 0.5" right
    Explanation
    Legal documents use margins to ensure that there is enough space on the left side for binding and to accommodate any notes or annotations. The wider left margin of 1.5" allows for easy reading and referencing, while the narrower right margin of 0.5" helps to conserve space and maintain a professional appearance.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Counterpart is a term associated with which document?

    • A.

      Bill of lading

    • B.

      Insurance certificate

    • C.

      Bill of Quantity

    • D.

      Conveyance

    Correct Answer
    D. Conveyance
    Explanation
    The term "counterpart" is commonly associated with the document "conveyance." A counterpart refers to a duplicate or copy of a legal document that has the same legal effect as the original. In the context of conveyance, a counterpart document is often used when multiple parties need to sign the same agreement, and each party receives a copy of the document with their signature. Therefore, the correct answer is "Conveyance."

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Unfinished typing lines in a legal document are:

    • A.

      Left as is

    • B.

      Joined to another line to make one

    • C.

      Filled in with hyphens or full stops

    • D.

      Create your own style to complete the line

    Correct Answer
    C. Filled in with hyphens or full stops
    Explanation
    In legal documents, unfinished typing lines are typically filled in with hyphens or full stops. This is done to indicate that the line is intentionally left incomplete and to prevent any unauthorized additions or alterations to the document. By using hyphens or full stops, it is clear that the line is intentionally unfinished and does not require any further information. This practice helps maintain the integrity and authenticity of legal documents.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The document which is an agreement between a proprietor and a prospective tenant is referred to as

    • A.

      A deed of sale

    • B.

      A power of attorney

    • C.

      Lease

    • D.

      Will

    Correct Answer
    C. Lease
    Explanation
    A lease is a document that serves as an agreement between a proprietor (landlord) and a prospective tenant. It outlines the terms and conditions under which the tenant will occupy the property, including the duration of the lease, rental payments, and any other agreed-upon clauses. Unlike a deed of sale, which transfers ownership of a property, or a power of attorney, which grants someone legal authority to act on behalf of another person, a lease specifically pertains to the rental of a property. A will, on the other hand, is a legal document that outlines a person's wishes regarding the distribution of their assets after their death, and is not related to a landlord-tenant agreement.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The following are all connecting words except

    • A.

      Whereas

    • B.

      Organization

    • C.

      Wherefore

    • D.

      Together

    Correct Answer
    B. Organization
    Explanation
    The word "organization" does not function as a connecting word. It is a noun that refers to a structured group of people with a common purpose. On the other hand, "whereas," "wherefore," and "together" are all connecting words that establish relationships between different parts of a sentence or between different ideas. "Whereas" introduces a contrast, "wherefore" indicates a reason or consequence, and "together" shows a sense of unity or combination. Therefore, "organization" is the odd one out as it does not serve the same grammatical function as the other words.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Some pertinent information contained in an endorsement are

    • A.

      Date and time

    • B.

      Date and name of solicitor

    • C.

      Description of document, date and name witness

    • D.

      Signature of solicitor and date document must be signed

    Correct Answer
    B. Date and name of solicitor
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "date and name of solicitor." In an endorsement, it is important to include the date and name of the solicitor who is endorsing the document. This helps to identify and authenticate the endorsement, ensuring that it is legally valid. Including this information also provides a record of when and by whom the document was endorsed, which can be useful for tracking and verifying the document's history.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    An Attestation Clause is that section of the document where

    • A.

      The witnesses sign as having witnessed the signature

    • B.

      The witnesses write their addresses and occupation

    • C.

      The person to whom the document is written out must put in the date and time

    • D.

      Where all parties attest the document

    Correct Answer
    A. The witnesses sign as having witnessed the signature
    Explanation
    An attestation clause is a section of a document where witnesses sign to confirm that they have witnessed the signature. This clause serves as proof that the signature on the document is genuine and was witnessed by the specified individuals. By signing the attestation clause, the witnesses acknowledge their presence and verification of the signature, adding credibility and legal validity to the document.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Legal documents should best be typed in the following line spacing for the final copy.

    • A.

      Treble line spacing

    • B.

      Tripple line spacing

    • C.

      Double or one and a half line spacing

    • D.

      Any line spacing the writer chooses

    Correct Answer
    C. Double or one and a half line spacing
    Explanation
    Legal documents should be typed in double or one and a half line spacing for the final copy. This line spacing allows for better readability and makes it easier for the reader to navigate through the document. It also provides enough space for annotations and corrections to be made if necessary. Using a larger line spacing, such as treble or triple, may result in the document appearing too spread out and unprofessional. Similarly, allowing the writer to choose any line spacing may lead to inconsistency and make the document harder to follow.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    The following punctuation marks are included in legal documents.

    • A.

      Full stops

    • B.

      Question marks

    • C.

      Commas

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. None of the above
    Explanation
    Legal documents often include a wide range of punctuation marks, including but not limited to full stops, question marks, and commas. Therefore, the correct answer is "none of the above" as it implies that the given options do not accurately represent the punctuation marks included in legal documents.
