    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement "You can send an attachment with an e-mail" is true. In email communication, it is common practice to attach files such as documents, images, or videos to the email message. This allows the sender to share additional information or media with the recipient. Attachments can be easily added to an email by using the attachment feature provided by email service providers.

  • 9. 

    The first part of your email address before the '@' is called your:

    • A.

      Domain name

    • B.

      Username

    • C.

      Password

    Correct Answer
    B. Username
    Explanation
    The first part of an email address before the "@" symbol is commonly referred to as the username. This is the unique identifier that is used to distinguish one user from another and is often chosen by the user themselves. The username is typically used in combination with the domain name to create a complete email address. In contrast, a domain name refers to the second part of an email address after the "@" symbol, which identifies the email service provider or organization associated with the address. The password, on the other hand, is a confidential piece of information used to secure and protect the email account from unauthorized access.
