    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    A "network manager" is considered an I.S. job.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because a "network manager" is a job role that falls under the category of Information Systems (I.S.) jobs. A network manager is responsible for overseeing and managing the operations of a computer network within an organization. They ensure that the network is running smoothly, troubleshoot any issues, and implement necessary upgrades or security measures. Therefore, it can be considered an I.S. job as it involves working with information systems and technology infrastructure.

  • 7. 

    A "network cable repairman" is considered an I.S. job.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A "network cable repairman" is not considered an I.S. (Information Systems) job. The job title suggests that the person's role is focused on repairing network cables, which is more related to the field of networking or telecommunications rather than information systems. Information systems jobs typically involve tasks such as managing and analyzing data, developing software, or providing technical support for computer systems.

    • E.

      Delicate network setup procedure

    Correct Answer
    A. Infringement of privacy
    Explanation
    The main risk of I.S. application is the infringement of privacy. This means that there is a potential for unauthorized access or disclosure of personal or sensitive information. This can lead to various negative consequences such as identity theft, financial loss, or reputational damage. It is important for organizations to implement robust security measures and protocols to protect the privacy of individuals and mitigate this risk.

                           Regular software is not  _______________________, while web-based software is.

    • A.

      Free

    • B.

      Unbiased

    • C.

      Unbound

    • D.

      Unlimited

    Correct Answer
    A. Free
    Explanation
    Regular software is not free, while web-based software is. This means that regular software typically requires a purchase or payment in order to access and use it, while web-based software can be accessed and used without any cost. This could be due to various factors such as the business model of the software provider, the inclusion of advertisements or sponsored content, or the use of open-source software. Overall, the distinction between regular software and web-based software lies in the cost associated with their usage.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

                            If web-based software requires you to be ONLINE, regular software can be used while being ....

    • A.

      Offline

    • B.

      Out of line

    • C.

      In line

    • D.

      Not in line

    Correct Answer
    A. Offline
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "offline" because if web-based software requires you to be online, regular software can be used while being offline. This means that regular software does not require an internet connection to be used, unlike web-based software which relies on an internet connection to function properly.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Regular software needs to be _______________________, while web-based software doesn't.

    • A.

      Installed

    • B.

      Implemented

    • C.

      Stalled

    • D.

      Instituted

    Correct Answer
    A. Installed
    Explanation
    Regular software needs to be installed, while web-based software doesn't. The term "installed" refers to the process of copying the software onto a computer or device's storage system, making it ready for use. This is typically done by running an installation program or package provided by the software developer. In contrast, web-based software is accessed and used directly through a web browser without the need for installation. It is hosted on remote servers and can be accessed from any device with an internet connection, making it more convenient and accessible compared to regular software that requires installation.

    Which of the cables (shown above) allows the highest data transfer rate?

    • A.

      Copper wire cable (left)

    • B.

      Coaxial cable (center)

    • C.

      Optical fiber cable (right)

    Correct Answer
    C. Optical fiber cable (right)
    Explanation
    The optical fiber cable allows the highest data transfer rate compared to the copper wire cable and coaxial cable. This is because optical fiber cables use light signals to transmit data, which allows for much higher bandwidth and faster transmission speeds. Copper wire cables and coaxial cables, on the other hand, use electrical signals, which have limitations in terms of data transfer rates. Therefore, the optical fiber cable is the best choice for high-speed data transfer.

    Rate this question:

  • 33. 

    Which of the cables (shown above) allows the lowest data transfer rate?

    • A.

      Copper wire cable (left)

    • B.

      Coaxial cable (center)

    • C.

      Optical fiber cable (right)

    Correct Answer
    A. Copper wire cable (left)
    Explanation
    The copper wire cable allows the lowest data transfer rate compared to the coaxial cable and optical fiber cable. Copper wire cables have lower bandwidth capabilities and are more susceptible to interference and signal loss, resulting in slower data transfer rates. Coaxial cables have higher bandwidth and better shielding, allowing for faster data transmission. Optical fiber cables, on the other hand, have the highest bandwidth and are capable of transmitting data at much higher speeds due to the use of light signals.

    When entering huge amounts of text (e.g., 500 pages), what input method would be the fastest?

    • A.

      Dictate fast into a microphone

    • B.

      Type the text quickly through a keyboard

    • C.

      Scan the text through an ADF (automatic document feeder)

    • D.

      Use a touch screen to enter text

    Correct Answer
    C. Scan the text through an ADF (automatic document feeder)
    Explanation
    Scanning the text through an ADF (automatic document feeder) would be the fastest input method when entering huge amounts of text. This method allows for the automatic feeding of multiple pages, reducing the time needed to manually input each page. Dictating into a microphone may be time-consuming as it requires speaking out the entire text. Typing through a keyboard may also be slow when dealing with a large volume of text. Using a touch screen to enter text may not be efficient for entering a large amount of text. Scanning through an ADF streamlines the process and saves time.
