    Books are sorted first by the author's last name. When two authors have the same last name, put their first names in order, and when one author has multiple books, put the titles in order.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement is true. According to the sorting rule mentioned, books are sorted based on the author's last name. If two authors have the same last name, their first names are considered to determine the order. Additionally, if one author has multiple books, the titles of their books are arranged in order.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because numbers do not always come after letters. In the English alphabet, letters are arranged in a specific order from A to Z. Numbers, on the other hand, have their own separate sequence. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that numbers always come after letters.
