    You use the ______ hand button on the mouse most often.

    Correct Answer
    left
    Explanation
    The left hand button on the mouse is used most often because the majority of people are right-handed. This means that the left hand is free to control the mouse while the right hand performs other tasks, such as typing on the keyboard. Additionally, the left hand button is typically set as the primary button for selecting and interacting with items on the screen, making it the most frequently used button on the mouse.

    Correct Answer
    C. To the recycle bin... where it can be recovered if necessary.
    Explanation
    When you delete a file, it is not immediately removed from your computer's storage. Instead, it is sent to the recycle bin or trash folder, depending on the operating system you are using. The recycle bin acts as a temporary storage for deleted files, allowing you to restore them if needed. This provides a safety net in case you accidentally delete a file or realize later that you still need it. Once you empty the recycle bin or trash folder, the file is permanently deleted from your computer's storage.

    Explanation
    A monitor is an output device because it displays the visual output of a computer system. It takes the electronic signals from the computer and converts them into images that can be seen on the screen. The monitor allows users to view and interact with the information and data processed by the computer. It does not take input from the user, but rather provides a visual representation of the output generated by the computer.
