Questions and Answers

    • B.

      The DELETE key is pressed in. Press DELETE again.

    • C.

      Word is in Overtype mode. Press INSERT to turn it off.

    Correct Answer
    C. Word is in Overtype mode. Press INSERT to turn it off.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because in a word document, you can retrieve deleted text by using the "Undo" command or by accessing the "Recycle Bin" or "Trash" folder on your computer where the deleted document is stored temporarily. Additionally, there are also third-party software programs available that can help recover deleted text from a word document.

    The best way to create a heading in a document is to: 

    • A.

      Apply a larger font size to it than the body text.

      Add bold formatting by clicking the Bold button on the Formatting toolbar.

    • C.

      Apply a heading style.

    Correct Answer
    C. Apply a heading style.
    Explanation
    Applying a heading style is the best way to create a heading in a document because it not only changes the font size, but also applies consistent formatting to all headings in the document. This ensures that headings have a uniform appearance and makes it easier to navigate and organize the content. Additionally, using a heading style allows for easy updates and modifications to headings throughout the document, as changes made to the style will automatically be applied to all headings.

To restore the toolbar, the user would need to go to the View menu, select Toolbars, and then check the box next to the desired toolbar to display it again.

    A document in portrait prints:

    • A.

      The same characters per line with the same document in landscape

    • B.

      More characters per line than the same document in landscape

    • C.

      Less characters per line than the same document in landscape

    • D.

      Smaller fonts in order to fit the same amount of characters per line with landscape

    Correct Answer
    C. Less characters per line than the same document in landscape
    Explanation
    When a document is printed in portrait orientation, there are typically fewer characters per line compared to the same document printed in landscape orientation. This is because portrait orientation has a narrower width, which limits the number of characters that can fit on each line. In landscape orientation, the wider width allows for more characters to fit on each line, resulting in more characters per line compared to portrait orientation.
