    Explanation
    The Common Gateway Interface (CGI) is a standard protocol that allows web servers to interact with executable files on a web server. This means that CGI is used to generate executable files from web content by the web server. CGI scripts can be written in various programming languages such as Perl, Python, or C++, and they are used to process user input, generate dynamic web content, and perform other server-side tasks.

    Computer which stores the different web pages is called as:

    • A.

      Service Provider

    • B.

      Web Browser

    • C.

      Web Crawler

    • D.

      Web Server

    Correct Answer
    D. Web Server
    Explanation
    A computer that stores different web pages is called a web server. A web server is responsible for hosting websites and delivering web pages to users when they request them. It receives requests from web browsers, retrieves the requested web pages from its storage, and sends them back to the user's browser for display. This is how websites are made accessible to users over the internet.

    • C.

      Social Networking Websites

    • D.

      Static website

    Correct Answer
    D. Static website
    Explanation
    A static website is the simplest form of a website where the content is delivered without the use of server-side processing. This means that the web pages are pre-designed and do not change based on user interactions or inputs. Static websites are mainly used to provide information or showcase products/services without any complex functionality. Unlike dynamic websites that use server-side processing to generate content on the fly, static websites are easier to develop and maintain as they do not require any server-side scripting or database integration.

    DNS is an Internet service that translates domain names to or from:

    • A.

      MAC address

    • B.

      IP address

    • C.

      Both

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    B. IP address
    Explanation
    DNS (Domain Name System) is an Internet service that translates domain names to IP addresses. When a user enters a domain name in their web browser, the DNS server is responsible for converting that domain name into the corresponding IP address of the server hosting the website. This IP address is then used to establish a connection and retrieve the requested web page. Therefore, the correct answer is IP address.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Which protocol is used for secure communication over the internet?

    • A.

      IP

    • B.

      UDP

    • C.

      HTTP

    • D.

      HTTPS

    Correct Answer
    D. HTTPS
    Explanation
    HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) is the correct answer because it is a protocol that provides secure communication over the internet. It combines the HTTP protocol with SSL/TLS encryption to ensure that data transmitted between a web server and a browser remains secure and cannot be easily intercepted or tampered with by unauthorized individuals. This is particularly important for sensitive information such as passwords, credit card details, and personal data.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Which protocol helps to transfer files between computers?

    • A.

      FTP

    • B.

      HTTP

    • C.

      UDP

    • D.

      FTTP

    Correct Answer
    A. FTP
    Explanation
    FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is the correct answer because it is specifically designed to transfer files between computers over a network. FTP allows users to upload, download, and manage files on a remote server. It provides a reliable and efficient method for transferring files, making it a commonly used protocol for file sharing and remote file management. HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) is primarily used for transferring web pages and data, UDP (User Datagram Protocol) is a connectionless protocol used for fast transmission of data, and FTTP (Fiber to the Premises) is a broadband network architecture.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Which of these is a client-server application?

    • A.

      Web browsing

    • B.

      E-MAIL

    • C.

      Both

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. Both
    Explanation
    Both web browsing and email are examples of client-server applications. In web browsing, the user's web browser acts as the client, sending requests to web servers and receiving responses. In email, the user's email client (such as Outlook or Gmail) acts as the client, connecting to an email server to send and receive messages. In both cases, there is a client (user's device) that interacts with a server (web server or email server) to access and exchange data.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Assume that an HTML form is designed to purchase the furniture. All the items required are being checked. After selecting the items the payment details are entered and the submit button is pressed. From the following options which one would you prefer to send the data to the server. Assume that all the security is handled.

    • A.

      Only POST

    • B.

      Only GET

    • C.

      Either of GET or POST

    • D.

      Neither GET nor POST

    Correct Answer
    C. Either of GET or POST
    Explanation
    When designing an HTML form to purchase furniture, it is preferable to send the data to the server using either the GET or POST method. Both methods can be used to send data securely, and the choice between them depends on the specific requirements of the form. The GET method appends the form data to the URL, making it visible in the browser's address bar and potentially bookmarkable. On the other hand, the POST method sends the form data in the body of the HTTP request, making it more secure and suitable for sensitive information like payment details. Therefore, either of GET or POST can be used based on the specific needs of the form.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Which of the following statements are true?

    • A.

      HTTP runs over TCP

    • B.

      HTTP allows information to be stored in a URL

    • C.

      Both

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. Both
    Explanation
    Both statements are true. HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) runs over TCP (Transmission Control Protocol), which is a reliable transport protocol. This means that HTTP uses TCP to establish a connection, ensure data integrity, and provide reliable delivery of information. Additionally, HTTP allows information to be stored in a URL (Uniform Resource Locator). This is commonly seen in query strings, where data is appended to the end of a URL to pass parameters or additional information to a web server.
