• A.

• B.

• C.

Explanation
The space bar on a keyboard is usually located at the bottom center, making it easily accessible to the right thumb.

Rate this question:

• 22.

DS means

• A.

Double space

• B.

Double or single

• C.

Dual section

A. Double space
Explanation
The term "DS" commonly refers to "double space." This means that there should be two spaces between each word or character. In typing or document formatting, double spacing is often used to create more space between lines of text, making it easier to read and edit. It is a common practice in academic writing, as it allows room for annotations and comments between lines.

Rate this question:

• 23.

_____ moves the cursor down to the next line.

• A.

TAB

• B.

ENTER

• C.

SHIFT

• D.

ESC

B. ENTER
Explanation
Pressing the ENTER key moves the cursor down to the next line. This key is commonly used to create a new paragraph or start a new line in a document, email, or text editor. It is also used to confirm or execute a command in various software applications. The ENTER key is located on the right side of the main keyboard, usually below the backspace or delete key.

Rate this question:

• 24.

Pressing ENTER at the end of a line is a/an

• A.

Automatic enter

• B.

Soft return

• C.

Hard return

• D.

Keyboard return

C. Hard return
Explanation
A hard return refers to the action of pressing the ENTER key on a keyboard, which creates a new paragraph or starts a new line in a document or text editor. It is called a "hard" return because it inserts a visible line break, forcing the text to move to the next line. This is different from a soft return, which is a line break that is automatically inserted when the text reaches the end of a line without the need for the ENTER key. Therefore, pressing ENTER at the end of a line is considered a hard return.

Rate this question:

• 25.

A toggle key for the numeric keypad is _____.

• A.

NUM LOCK

• B.

SHIFT

• C.

ENTER

• D.

ESC

A. NUM LOCK
Explanation
The correct answer is NUM LOCK. The NUM LOCK key is a toggle key that is used to switch the numeric keypad between numeric mode and cursor control mode. When NUM LOCK is turned on, the numeric keypad functions as a calculator or a numeric entry device. When NUM LOCK is turned off, the numeric keypad functions as arrow keys for cursor movement. Therefore, NUM LOCK is the key that toggles the functionality of the numeric keypad.

Explanation
DELETE erases to the right of the cursor. When the cursor is placed in a text field or document, pressing the DELETE key removes the character to the right of the cursor. This allows for easy editing and deletion of text without the need to use the backspace key to erase characters to the left of the cursor.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs in the wrists.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that affects the wrists. It occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm to the hand, becomes compressed or squeezed at the wrist. This compression leads to symptoms such as numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand and fingers. Therefore, the statement "Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs in the wrists" is true.

Rate this question:

• 43.

Correct posture is not necessary to prevent CTS.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement is incorrect. Correct posture is necessary to prevent carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Maintaining proper posture while working or performing activities that involve repetitive hand movements can help reduce strain on the wrists and prevent compression of the median nerve, which is the main cause of CTS. Incorrect posture, such as slouching or bending the wrists excessively, can increase the risk of developing CTS. Therefore, it is important to maintain good posture to prevent CTS.

Rate this question:

• 44.

The best position for your feet is flat on the floor.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The best position for your feet is flat on the floor because it promotes proper posture and alignment of the spine. When your feet are flat on the floor, it helps distribute your body weight evenly, reducing strain on your back and legs. This position also allows for better stability and balance, which is important for maintaining a comfortable and ergonomic position while sitting or standing for long periods of time.

Rate this question:

• 45.

Proper wrist position means laying your wrists on the table or desk.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
Proper wrist position does not necessarily mean laying your wrists on the table or desk. While it is important to have a neutral wrist position to avoid strain and discomfort, this can be achieved by keeping the wrists straight and aligned with the forearms, whether they are resting on a surface or not. Laying the wrists on the table or desk is just one possible way to achieve this, but it is not the only correct position.
