True or false: Excel is like an electronic version of a paper ledger. If you are familiar with Word, a spreadsheet is similar to working with tables—it has rows and columns, and the space where these two intersect are called “cells”.
Correct Answer
A. True
Explanation
Excel is like an electronic version of a paper ledger because it allows users to organize and manipulate data in rows and columns, similar to how a paper ledger is organized. The cells in Excel represent the intersection of rows and columns, just like the spaces in a table. Therefore, the statement is true.

Please check the types of data may occur in excel "cell" (check all possible answers)
Correct Answer(s)
A. Label
B. Mathematical equations
C. Text sentence
D. Numerical number
E. Formula
Explanation
The types of data that may occur in an Excel cell include labels (text that is used to identify or describe data), mathematical equations (formulas that perform calculations), text sentences (complete sentences or phrases), numerical numbers (numeric values), and formulas (expressions that perform calculations using cell references and mathematical operators).

Formulas or functions must begin with ____________.
Correct Answer
C. =
Explanation
Formulas or functions in most programming languages, including Excel, must begin with the "=" sign. This is because the "=" sign is used to indicate that the following text is a formula or function that needs to be evaluated. Without the "=" sign, the text would be treated as a regular string or value, rather than a formula or function. Therefore, in order to properly use formulas or functions, it is necessary to begin them with the "=" sign.

=SUM (A1:A3) +$B$3
Please type in the value of B5 according to the given formula.
Correct Answer
8
eight
Explanation
The formula "=SUM (A1:A3) +$B$3" is asking for the sum of the values in cells A1, A2, and A3, and then adding the value in cell B3 to it. Since the values in cells A1, A2, and A3 are 2, 3, and 2 respectively, the sum of these values is 7. Therefore, the value of B5 should be 7 + the value in B3. The answer choices given are 8 and eight, either of which could be the value in B3.
6.
__________allows text to span across multiple columns.
Correct Answer
A. Merge & Center
Explanation
Merge & Center allows text to span across multiple columns. This feature combines the selected cells into one cell and centers the text within it. This is commonly used when creating tables or organizing data in a spreadsheet, as it helps to visually group or highlight certain information. By merging cells and centering the text, the data becomes easier to read and understand.

Which formula can add the all the numeric values in a range of cells, ignoring those which are not numeric, and place the result in a different cell?
Correct Answer
B. SUM
Explanation
The SUM formula can add all the numeric values in a range of cells and place the result in a different cell. It ignores any non-numeric values in the range.
8.
What type of cell reference is this:$A$1.
Correct Answer
C. Absolute
Explanation
The cell reference $A$1 is an absolute cell reference. In Excel, an absolute cell reference is denoted by using the dollar sign ($) before the column letter and row number. This means that when the formula or reference is copied to other cells, the reference to $A$1 will always remain the same. It will not change based on the relative position of the formula or reference.

If A5 = (A2*B1)/2, then A5= _______?
(please input the number)
Correct Answer
10
ten
Explanation
The equation A5 = (A2*B1)/2 means that A5 is equal to the product of A2 and B1, divided by 2. Since the values given for A2 and B1 are not provided, we cannot determine the exact value of A5. Therefore, the answer could be any number or even a non-numeric value like "ten".
