    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What input type would allow a user to select several options from a list of possibilities?

    • A.

      Radio buttons.

    • B.

      Checkboxes.

    • C.

      Form fields.

    • D.

      Drop-down box.

    Correct Answer
    B. Checkboxes.
    Explanation
    Checkboxes would allow a user to select several options from a list of possibilities. Unlike radio buttons, which only allow for a single selection, checkboxes allow for multiple selections to be made simultaneously. Form fields and drop-down boxes are not specifically designed for selecting multiple options, making checkboxes the most suitable input type for this purpose.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which input type would be best to create when you have 15 options to choose from?

    • A.

      Radio buttons

    • B.

      Textarea field

    • C.

      Drop-down box

    • D.

      Checkboxes

    Correct Answer
    C. Drop-down box
    Explanation
    A drop-down box would be the best input type to create when there are 15 options to choose from. This is because a drop-down box allows for a compact and organized display of the options, making it easier for the user to navigate and select their desired option. Compared to radio buttons or checkboxes, which could become cluttered and take up more space on the screen, a drop-down box provides a more streamlined and user-friendly interface. A textarea field, on the other hand, is more suitable for longer text inputs rather than selecting from a list of options.

    Correct Answer
    A. It handles HTTP transactions.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "It matches and connects domain names to IP addresses." The Domain Name System (DNS) is responsible for translating domain names (such as www.example.com) into IP addresses (such as 192.168.0.1) that computers can understand. It acts as a directory that allows users to access websites by typing in a domain name instead of the complex numerical IP address. It plays a crucial role in ensuring that users can easily navigate the web by connecting them to the correct IP address associated with a specific domain name.

    Every URL on the internet is converted to a number address, such as http://10.21.1.3. This address is known as:

    • A.

      Internet protocol, or IP.

    • B.

It allows devices to communicate and send data across the internet. The IP address consists of a series of numbers separated by periods, such as 10.21.1.3. The IP address is essential for routing data packets and ensuring that information reaches the correct destination on the internet.

  • 10. 

    In order to let people see your web site on a different computer, it must be placed on a:

    • A.

      Web server.

    • B.

      Web proxy.

    • C.

      Web page.

    • D.

      Web name.

    Correct Answer
    A. Web server.
    Explanation
    To make a website accessible to people on different computers, it needs to be hosted on a web server. A web server is a computer that stores the website's files and delivers them to users when they request it. It acts as a central hub for hosting and serving web pages over the internet. A web proxy, on the other hand, is an intermediary server that retrieves web content on behalf of users, while a web page refers to a single document or page within a website. A web name typically refers to a domain name or URL that identifies a website.

    Highlighted words that take you to another part of a website when clicked are called:

    • A.

      Hyperlinks.

    • B.

      Navigation buttons.

    • C.

      Navigation bar.

    • D.

      Metatags.

    Correct Answer
    A. Hyperlinks.
    Explanation
    The highlighted words that take you to another part of a website when clicked are called hyperlinks. Hyperlinks are typically underlined or displayed in a different color to indicate that they are clickable. They are used to navigate between different web pages or sections within a website. Navigation buttons and navigation bar refer to elements that help users navigate within a website, but they do not specifically indicate clickable links. Metatags, on the other hand, are snippets of code that provide information about a web page but do not directly relate to clickable links.

  • 12. 

    What filename should you always save your main web page as?

    • A.

      Homepage.htm

    • B.

      Main.htm

    • C.

      Index.htm

    • D.

      Home.htm

    Correct Answer
    C. Index.htm
    Explanation
    The recommended filename for the main web page is "index.htm". This is because "index" is a commonly used default name for the main page of a website. When a visitor enters a website's domain name without specifying a specific page, the server will typically look for a file named "index" to display as the default page. Therefore, using "index.htm" as the filename ensures that the main page is easily accessible and displayed as the default when visitors access the website.

    A hardware device that works as a 'traffic cop' and directs signals to other computers is known as a:

    • A.

      Router.

    • B.

      Firewall.

    • C.

      Web proxy.

    • D.

      Motherboard.

    Correct Answer
    A. Router.
    Explanation
    A hardware device that works as a 'traffic cop' and directs signals to other computers is known as a router. A router is responsible for directing network traffic between different devices on a network. It analyzes the destination address of incoming data packets and determines the most efficient path for the data to reach its destination. Unlike a firewall, which is designed to protect a network from unauthorized access, a router primarily focuses on routing network traffic. A web proxy, on the other hand, is a server that acts as an intermediary between clients and web servers, handling requests on behalf of the clients. A motherboard, while an essential component of a computer, does not perform the specific function of directing signals to other computers.
