    Correct Answer
    A. TRUE
    Explanation
    You do not need to connect to the internet to verify changes to a web page on your computer because the changes are made locally on your computer. When you make changes to a web page using a web development tool or software, you can preview and verify those changes directly on your computer without needing an internet connection. This allows developers to test and make adjustments to their web pages before publishing them online.

The 16 color names recognized by HTML are aqua, black, blue, fuchsia, gray, green, lime, maroon, navy, olive, purple, red, silver, teal, white, and yellow.

    • A.

      TRUE

    • B.

      FALSE

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Software programs, including web browsers, use a mathematical approach to define color. This is achieved through the use of color models such as RGB (Red, Green, Blue) or CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black). These models assign numerical values to each color component, allowing software to accurately represent and manipulate colors on digital displays. By using mathematical calculations, software programs can create a wide range of colors and accurately render them on screens. Therefore, the statement "Software programs, like your Web browser, use a mathematical approach to define color" is true.

By using this tag, it helps the writer to easily differentiate between paragraphs and maintain proper formatting of the content. Without closing the (p) tag, the paragraphs would not be properly closed, resulting in incorrect structure and potential display issues. Therefore, using the closing (p) tag is essential to ensure that all tags are properly closed and to maintain the integrity of the document's structure.
