    8.1.8.B.9 - Solving Basic Hardware Problems   Which one of the following could be the reason why a printer does not print?

    • A.

      The toner cartridge is full.

    • B.

      The power cord is not plugged in.

    • C.

      The green power light is on.

    Correct Answer
    B. The power cord is not plugged in.
    Explanation
    The reason why a printer does not print could be because the power cord is not plugged in. The power cord provides the necessary electrical power for the printer to function. If it is not plugged in, the printer will not receive power and will not be able to print. The other options, such as the toner cartridge being full or the green power light being on, do not directly affect the printer's ability to print.

    Rate this question:

      Wait until the next day.

    Correct Answer
    A. Look to see if all the power cords are plugged in.

    The correct answer is "Don't allow him to use my username and password." Sharing personal login credentials is a violation of ethical behavior on the internet. It is important to protect one's own privacy and security by not sharing usernames and passwords with others, even if they are friends. Instead, it would be more appropriate to encourage the friend to obtain their own permission slip or seek assistance from someone else.
