    B. Selected text or graphics are removed.
    Explanation
    When the "cut" command is used in a document, it removes the selected text or graphics from the document. This means that the content that was selected will be deleted and no longer visible in the document. The "cut" command is commonly used to transfer or relocate content within a document or to a different location altogether. It is important to note that the application does not stop running and there is no mention of only half the screen being seen, so these options can be eliminated.

Therefore, "save as" is the correct option for saving a document for the first time.
