    Correct Answer
    C. Where all the incoming messages are shown.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is where all the incoming messages are shown. The inbox is a folder or section in an email or messaging system where all the new and incoming messages are displayed. It serves as a central location for users to access and manage their incoming messages, allowing them to easily view, read, and respond to new messages. The other options mentioned, such as finding unwanted messages or storing messages of a particular type, do not accurately describe the primary purpose and function of an inbox.

    Which of the following is considered to be poor e-mail etiquette?

    • A.

      Keeping the message personal

    • B.

      Using lots of capital letters to emphasize certain words

    • C.

      Responding to messages as soon as possible

    Correct Answer
    B. Using lots of capital letters to emphasize certain words
    Explanation
    Using lots of capital letters to emphasize certain words is considered to be poor e-mail etiquette. This is because typing in all capital letters is equivalent to shouting in the online world and can be seen as aggressive or rude. It is more appropriate to use proper formatting, such as bold or italics, to emphasize certain words or phrases in an e-mail.

      "Yo, dude! Whassup?"

    • C.

      Conversational.

    • D.

      Formal.

    Correct Answer
    D. Formal.
    Explanation
    The tone of a professional email message should be formal because it is a professional setting and requires a level of professionalism in communication. Using a casual tone like the one used with friends may be seen as unprofessional and may not convey the intended message effectively. A conversational tone can be appropriate in certain situations, but it should still maintain a level of formality. Therefore, the most appropriate tone for a professional email message is formal.

      Compress the file, then ask first when would be the best time to e-mail it.

    Correct Answer
    D. Compress the file, then ask first when would be the best time to e-mail it.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to compress the file, then ask first when would be the best time to e-mail it. This is the most efficient and considerate approach when sending a very large attachment. Compressing the file reduces its size, making it easier and faster to send. Asking the recipient when would be the best time to e-mail it ensures that they are prepared to receive such a large file and avoids any inconvenience or potential issues with their email server or bandwidth.

    • D.

      The whole world. Why not? Everyone else does.

    Correct Answer
    C. Only those people who absolutely need to know.
    Explanation
    When sending a message, it is important to copy only those people who absolutely need to know. Including unnecessary recipients can lead to confusion, clutter, and a waste of time for those who do not need to be involved. It is best to keep the recipient list concise and focused on individuals who are directly relevant to the message or have a specific need for the information being shared. This ensures efficient communication and prevents unnecessary distractions for others.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    The best way to know if your email message was received is to ask the

    • A.

      Network person

    • B.

      Computer guru

    • C.

      System admin

    • D.

      Recipient to confirm

    Correct Answer
    D. Recipient to confirm
    Explanation
    The best way to know if your email message was received is to ask the recipient to confirm. The recipient is the person who will receive the email, so they are the most reliable source to confirm whether or not they have received the message. Asking the network person, computer guru, or system admin may not provide accurate information as they may not have direct access to the recipient's email account. Therefore, the recipient's confirmation is the most appropriate and reliable way to know if the email message was received.

    • B.

      Forward to me

    • C.

      Forward it to me

    Correct Answer
    A. Forward me

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    I thanked him for his ______________________ (= answer).

    • A.

      Reply

    • B.

      Replication

    • C.

      Replay

    • D.

      Restart

    Correct Answer
    A. Reply
    Explanation
    The word "reply" is the correct answer because it fits the context of thanking someone for their response or answer. "Replication" refers to the act of copying or reproducing something, which does not make sense in this sentence. "Replay" refers to the act of playing back something, such as a recording, which is also unrelated to the sentence. "Restart" means to begin something again, which is not appropriate in this context. Therefore, "reply" is the most suitable word to complete the sentence.

      Destructed

    • D.

      Deleted

    Correct Answer
    D. Deleted
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "deleted". The word "deleted" fits grammatically and semantically in the sentence, indicating that the speaker's message was unintentionally removed or erased. The other options, "delete", "destroyed", and "destructed", do not match the verb form required in the sentence.

  • 16. 

    You should always send attachments at their original file size.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Sending attachments at their original file size is not always recommended because large file sizes can cause issues with email delivery, especially if the recipient has limited storage space or a slow internet connection. Additionally, sending large attachments can also increase the risk of email server restrictions or bounce backs. It is generally advisable to compress or resize attachments before sending them to ensure smoother delivery and to consider the convenience of the recipient.

    Correct Answer
    B. False

      Connection

    • B.

      Reference

    • C.

      Referee

    • D.

      Regression

    Correct Answer
    B. Reference
    Explanation
    The word "reference" is the correct answer because it is the most appropriate term to use in the given context. The sentence suggests that the writer is writing to follow up on a telephone conversation about an order. In this case, "reference" indicates that the writer is referring to the previous conversation and wants to provide further information or clarification related to it. "Connection" and "regression" do not fit the context of a conversation about an order, and "referee" is unrelated to the topic.

    • C.

      Grieve

    • D.

      Sorry

    Correct Answer
    B. Apologise
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "apologise." This is because the sentence is referring to expressing regret or saying sorry for the delay in processing the order. "Regret," "grieve," and "sorry" can also convey a sense of apology, but "apologise" is the most appropriate and commonly used term in this context.

    D. Accept
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "accept". In this sentence, "accept" is the appropriate word choice because it means to receive or agree to something, such as an apology. The other options ("take", "have", and "except") do not convey the same meaning and would not fit grammatically in the sentence.

The phrase "do not hesitate" is commonly used to encourage someone to reach out or ask questions, indicating that there is no need to be hesitant or unsure. The other options, such as "stop," "fail," and "fall," do not convey the same meaning or fit appropriately in the sentence.

    • D.

      Disappointed

    Correct Answer
    A. Afraid
    Explanation
    The word "afraid" is the correct answer because it fits grammatically and semantically in the given sentence. The phrase "I am afraid" is commonly used to express reluctance or unwillingness to take responsibility for something. The other options, such as "apologise," "regret," and "disappointed," do not convey the same meaning and would not make sense in this context.

      Inconvenience

    • C.

      Unfortunate

    • D.

      Disbenefit

    Correct Answer
    B. Inconvenience
    Explanation
    The word "apologize" suggests that the speaker is expressing regret for causing some sort of negative effect or inconvenience. The word "inconvenience" is the most appropriate choice here because it directly relates to causing trouble or difficulty for someone. The other options, such as "disadvantage," "unfortunate," and "disbenefit," do not convey the same meaning of causing trouble or difficulty.
