### Which box is used for writing the processing instructions and doing calculations in a Flowchart?

• A.

Start/Stop box

• B.

Processing box

• C.

Input/ Output box

• D.

Option 4

B. Processing box
Explanation
In a flowchart, the processing box is used for writing the processing instructions and doing calculations. This box represents a specific task or operation that needs to be performed in the flowchart. It can include mathematical calculations, data manipulation, decision-making, or any other processing step required in the flowchart. The processing box is where the actual processing of data or information takes place, making it an essential component in the flowchart.

### What do we call the pictorial representation of steps for solving a particular problem?

• A.

Flowchart

• B.

Algorithm

• C.

Flow lines

• D.

Option 4

A. Flowchart
Explanation
A flowchart is a visual representation of the steps or processes involved in solving a specific problem. It uses various symbols and shapes to depict the flow of information, decisions, and actions. Flowcharts are commonly used in computer programming, engineering, and problem-solving to provide a clear and organized representation of the problem-solving steps. They help in understanding and communicating complex processes and enable easy identification of errors or inefficiencies in the solution.

### Which operator is used to combine two or more relational expressions & return a single value as True or False in a decision?

• A.

Logical

• B.

Arithmetic

• C.

Relational

• D.

Option 4

A. Logical
Explanation
The correct answer is "Logical". The logical operator is used to combine two or more relational expressions and return a single value as true or false in a decision. It allows for the evaluation of multiple conditions and the determination of whether they are all true or at least one of them is true. This is commonly used in decision-making statements such as if-else or while loops to control the flow of the program based on certain conditions.

### Which symbol should be used first to represent the String Variable?

• A.

A number

• B.

An alphabet

• C.

\$ symbol

• D.

Option 4

C. \$ symbol
Explanation
The \$ symbol should be used first to represent the String Variable. In many programming languages, including PHP and JavaScript, the \$ symbol is commonly used as a prefix to indicate a variable. Therefore, when declaring or referencing a String Variable, it is standard practice to use the \$ symbol at the beginning.

### Which of these is a valid String variable?

• A.

2A\$

• B.

A2\$

• C.

A\$2

• D.

Option 4

B. A2\$

### Which box is used for starting or ending the flowchart?

• A.

Input/Output box

• B.

Start/Stop box

• C.

Decision box

• D.

Option 4

B. Start/Stop box
Explanation
