    In Microsoft Excel, which function can you use to conditionally sum values based on multiple criteria across different ranges?

    • A.

      SUM

    • B.

      SUMIF 

    • C.

      SUMIFS 

    • D.

      SUMPRODUCT

    Correct Answer
    C. SUMIFS 
    Explanation
    The SUMIFS function in Microsoft Excel is designed to sum values in a range based on one or more criteria across multiple ranges. Unlike SUMIF, which considers only a single condition, SUMIFS allows for multiple conditions. The function syntax is SUMIFS(sum_range, criteria_range1, criteria1, [criteria_range2, criteria2], ...), making it ideal for complex conditional summing where multiple criteria are to be met across different data columns. This makes it more versatile and powerful for detailed data analysis compared to SUM, SUMIF, and SUMPRODUCT, although SUMPRODUCT also allows for complex calculations and could be used similarly but requires different syntax and setup.

    The given answer "Landscape" suggests that the orientation being referred to is the orientation of a page. In the context of page orientation, "Landscape" refers to a horizontal orientation where the width of the page is greater than its height. This orientation is commonly used for documents or images that are wider than they are tall, such as spreadsheets or wide-angle photographs.

    • D.

      Document

    Correct Answer

    When typing text in Word, you should press ENTER at the end of a paragraph. This is because pressing ENTER creates a new paragraph, which is a distinct block of text separated by a blank line. Pressing ENTER at the end of a line or page does not create a new paragraph, but rather a line break or page break respectively. Similarly, pressing ENTER at the end of a document would not create a new paragraph, as there would be no additional text to separate.

    D. The column is not wide enough to display the cell content
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that the column is not wide enough to display the cell content. When you see pound signs (#######) in a cell, it indicates that the column width is not sufficient to show the complete content of the cell. This typically happens when the content of the cell is too long or when the column width is manually adjusted to be too narrow. To fix this, you can either widen the column or adjust the cell content to fit within the current column width.

  • 33. 

    Cell A4 =2 and A5 = 4. You select both cells and drag the fill handle down to A8. The contents of cells A6, A7, and A8 are

    • A.

      8,16,32

    • B.

      2, 4, 2

    • C.

      2, 2, 2

    • D.

      6,8,10

    Correct Answer
    D. 6,8,10
    Explanation
    When you select cells A4 and A5 and drag the fill handle down to A8, the fill handle will automatically fill the cells with a series based on the pattern it detects. In this case, the pattern is doubling the value in each cell. So, the contents of cells A6, A7, and A8 will be 6, 8, and 10 respectively, as they are the result of doubling the values in A5 (4).

    Rate this question:

  • 34. 

    The formula that will add the value of cell D4 to the value of C2 and then multiply by the value in B2 is:

    • A.

      D4+C2*B2

      (D4+C2)*B2

    • D.

      (B2*(D4+C2)

    Correct Answer
    C. (D4+C2)*B2
    Explanation
    The correct answer is (D4+C2)*B2. This formula correctly adds the value of cell D4 to the value of C2 and then multiplies it by the value in B2. The parentheses ensure that the addition is performed before the multiplication, which follows the order of operations in mathematics.

    Explanation
    The equation B2 = B3 is stating that the value of B2 is equal to the value of B3. However, the equation 8 = 99 is false and does not make sense. Additionally, dividing by zero is undefined and not possible in mathematics. Therefore, the correct answer is "DIV BY ZERO" as it accurately identifies the error in the equation.
