    When you delete a file from your computer's hard drive, it is removed to the folder called Recycle Bin, from which it is still available for restoring unless emptied.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When you delete a file from your computer's hard drive, it is not permanently removed. Instead, it is moved to a folder called Recycle Bin. The Recycle Bin acts as a temporary storage for deleted files, allowing users to restore them if needed. Unless the Recycle Bin is emptied, the deleted file remains accessible and can be restored to its original location. Therefore, the statement "When you delete a file from your computer's hard drive, it is removed to the folder called Recycle Bin, from which it is still available for restoring unless emptied" is true.

    Shortcuts are merely pointers, deleting a shortcut will not delete the item to which the shortcut points.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Shortcuts in computer systems are like quick access links to files or folders. They are not the actual files or folders themselves, but rather pointers that direct the user to the location of the original item. Therefore, deleting a shortcut will not delete the actual item to which it points. This means that even if a shortcut is deleted, the original file or folder will still remain intact and accessible. Hence, the statement is true.
