    Correct Answer
    C. 2 modems exchanging inforamtion
    Explanation
    Handshaking in the area of network communication refers to the process where two modems exchange information to establish a connection. It involves a series of signals and protocols to ensure that both devices are ready and compatible to communicate with each other. This exchange of information allows the modems to negotiate parameters such as data transfer speed and error control methods. Once the handshaking process is completed successfully, the modems can begin transmitting data between each other.

    How would you make a secure password so no one can hack into your account?

    • A.

      Letters

    • B.

      Numbers

    • C.

      Letters and numbers mixed

    Correct Answer
    C. Letters and numbers mixed
    Explanation
    Mixing letters and numbers in a password creates a stronger and more secure combination. Including both letters and numbers increases the complexity of the password, making it harder for hackers to guess or crack. Using only letters or only numbers would make the password easier to guess or break through various hacking techniques such as brute-force attacks or dictionary attacks. Therefore, combining letters and numbers provides an added layer of security to protect against unauthorized access to an account.

      Yes

    • B.

      Maybe

    • C.

      Never

    Correct Answer
    C. Never
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "never" because as a receptionist, you would not typically have access to the security room. The security room is usually restricted to authorized personnel only, such as security guards or managers. The receptionist's role is mainly focused on greeting visitors, answering phone calls, and performing administrative tasks, rather than having access to sensitive areas like the security room.

    If you are an IT Technician you have access to all the hardware, software, and documents?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    As an IT Technician, you may have access to a wide range of hardware, software, and documents related to your job responsibilities. However, it does not necessarily mean that you have access to all the hardware, software, and documents in an organization. Access privileges are typically assigned based on job roles, security clearance, and need-to-know basis. So, while you may have access to a significant amount of resources, it is unlikely that you have access to everything in the organization. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    If your password was mixed letters and numbers would it be strong?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    Yes, a password that includes a combination of letters and numbers would be considered strong. This is because using a mix of alphanumeric characters increases the complexity of the password, making it harder for hackers to guess or crack. Including both letters and numbers provides a larger pool of possible combinations, making it more difficult for brute-force attacks or dictionary-based hacking methods to succeed. Therefore, using a password that includes mixed letters and numbers enhances its strength and adds an extra layer of security.
