      Acceptable Use

    • C.

      Public Domain

    • D.

      Reasonable Use

    Correct Answer
    A. Fair Use
    Explanation
    Fair Use is a provision in copyright law that allows students to use a portion of someone else's creative work in their projects without seeking permission from the copyright holder. This provision is based on the principle that certain uses of copyrighted material, such as for educational purposes, criticism, commentary, or research, do not infringe upon the rights of the copyright holder. Fair Use allows for the balance between copyright protection and the freedom of expression and learning.

    To follow copyright law using a 7 minute song in your presentation, you would only be allowed to use this much without asking permission from the copyright holder:

    • A.

      70 seconds

    • B.

      30 seconds

    • C.

    B. 30 seconds
    Explanation
    To follow copyright law, you are only allowed to use a 7-minute song in your presentation for a maximum of 30 seconds without asking permission from the copyright holder. This is because using copyrighted material without permission is a violation of the owner's exclusive rights, including the right to control the reproduction and distribution of their work. By limiting the usage to 30 seconds, it is considered fair use, which allows for limited use of copyrighted material for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, or research.

    Design principles are fundamental concepts that guide the arrangement and organization of elements in a design. Proximity, repetition, alignment, and contrast are all examples of design principles that help create visual harmony and hierarchy. Color, on the other hand, is not considered a design principle but rather a design element that can be used to enhance and communicate the message of a design.

    • D.

      Green

    Correct Answer
    C. White
    Explanation
    White is the best color of letters to use on an all black background for good design because it creates a high contrast and ensures readability. The contrast between black and white is strong, making the letters stand out and easily legible. This combination is visually appealing and enhances the overall design. Additionally, white is a neutral color that can complement various other design elements and create a clean and modern aesthetic.

    What is a vector graphic?

    • A.

      An image comprised of a series of colored pixels

    • B.

      An image drawn or printed on paper

    • C.

      An image made of lines comprised by mathematical formulae

    • D.

      An image where all lines are curved

    Correct Answer
    C. An image made of lines comprised by mathematical formulae
    Explanation
    A vector graphic is an image made of lines comprised by mathematical formulae. Unlike raster graphics, which are made up of pixels, vector graphics use mathematical equations to define the lines and curves of the image. This allows vector graphics to be scaled up or down without losing quality, as the mathematical formulas can be recalculated to fit the new size. Vector graphics are commonly used for logos, illustrations, and other designs that require scalability and precision.

    What is a bitmap?

    • A.

      An image comprised of a series of colored pixels

    • B.

      An image drawn or printed on paper

    • C.

      An image made of lines comprised by mathematical formulae

    • D.

      An image where all lines are curved

    Correct Answer
    A. An image comprised of a series of colored pixels
    Explanation
    A bitmap is an image comprised of a series of colored pixels. Pixels are the smallest units of an image, and each pixel in a bitmap image represents a specific color. When all the pixels are combined, they form the complete image. Unlike vector images, which are made up of mathematical formulae and can be scaled without losing quality, bitmap images have a fixed resolution and can become pixelated when enlarged.

    Computer monitors display in this color format:

    • A.

      RGB

    • B.

      RYB

    • C.

      CMYK

    • D.

      CMBK

    Correct Answer
    A. RGB
    Explanation
    Computer monitors display in the RGB color format. RGB stands for Red, Green, and Blue, which are the primary colors of light. In this color format, different intensities of these three colors are combined to create a wide range of colors on the screen. Each pixel on the monitor is made up of tiny red, green, and blue subpixels that emit light and can be adjusted to produce any color visible to the human eye. This color format is widely used in digital displays, including computer monitors, televisions, and mobile devices.

    Color printing is done in this color format:

    • A.

      RGB

    • B.

      RYB

    • C.

      CMYK

    • D.

      CMBK

    Correct Answer
    C. CMYK
    Explanation
    Color printing is done in the CMYK color format. CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Key (black). In this color model, different combinations of these four colors are used to create a wide range of colors. Cyan, magenta, and yellow are subtractive colors, meaning that they absorb light to create different hues, while black is added to enhance contrast and detail. This color format is commonly used in printing because it can accurately reproduce a larger gamut of colors compared to other formats like RGB or RYB.

    The dots along a path in Illustrator that permit you to alter the path are called:

    • A.

      Anchor Points

    • B.

      Handles

    • C.

      Vectors

    • D.

      Anchor conversions

    Correct Answer
    A. Anchor Points
    Explanation
    The dots along a path in Illustrator that permit you to alter the path are called anchor points. These anchor points act as control points that define the shape and direction of the path. By manipulating the position and properties of these anchor points, you can modify the path and create different shapes and curves.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Extending from the dots along a path in Illustrator, these lines allow you to change the curve of the path, although they are invisible when the content is printed or exported:

    • B.

      Handles

    • C.

      Vectors

    • D.

      Anchor conversions

    Correct Answer
    B. Handles
    Explanation
    Handles in Illustrator are the lines that extend from the anchor points along a path. They allow you to change the curve of the path by adjusting their length and angle. While handles are visible and editable in Illustrator, they are not visible when the content is printed or exported. Handles are essential for creating smooth and precise curves in vector graphics.
