    Explanation
    The statement "Sort → The rectangles that are formed when rows and columns intersect" is incorrect. Sorting refers to arranging items in a particular order based on certain criteria, such as alphabetical or numerical order. It does not have any relation to the formation of rectangles when rows and columns intersect. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 10.

    Explanation
    Horizontal alignment refers to the setting that determines how text is positioned between the left and right margins. It controls whether the text is aligned to the left, right, center, or justified. Vertical alignment, on the other hand, refers to the positioning of text between the top and bottom margins. Sort and Tab are unrelated to the positioning of text between margins and do not refer to the given setting.

      Line spacing

    Explanation
    Line spacing refers to the amount of space between lines of text in a paragraph.

By adjusting the line spacing, the text can appear more compact or more spread out, depending on the desired formatting and style.

    • C.

      Hanging indent

    • D.

      First-line indent

    Correct Answer
    C. Hanging indent
    Explanation
    A hanging indent is a setting that begins the first full line of text in a paragraph at the left margin and indents all the remaining lines in the paragraph one-half inch from the left margin. This is commonly used in bibliographies, references, and citations to make the text more visually organized and easier to read. It helps to differentiate the first line from the subsequent lines, making it clear where each new entry or paragraph begins.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    A tool identified with symbols such as dotted, dashed, or solid lines that fill the space before tabs.  Indent

    • A.

    C. Leaders
    Explanation
    Leaders are a tool used to create a visual connection between items in a list or to draw attention to specific information. They are identified by symbols such as dotted, dashed, or solid lines that fill the space before tabs. In this context, the other options such as line spacing, indent, and alignments do not fit the description of a tool identified with symbols that fill the space before tabs. Therefore, the correct answer is leaders.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Negative Indent → A setting that extends paragraph text into the left margin.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Negative indent is a formatting setting that moves the paragraph text into the left margin, creating a hanging or outdented effect. This means that the first line of the paragraph starts to the left of the regular left margin, while the rest of the paragraph is indented normally. Therefore, the given statement that negative indent extends paragraph text into the left margin is correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 15.

    • A.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Vertical alignment refers to the positioning of text between the top and bottom margins of a page. It determines whether the text is aligned at the top, middle, or bottom of the page. Therefore, the statement that "Vertical Alignment refers to how text is positioned between the top and bottom margins of the page" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 16.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

      Command

    • C.

    • D.

      Menu

    Correct Answer
    B. Command
    Explanation
    A command is an instruction that you give to Word by clicking a button or entering information into a command box. In this context, the other options mentioned (Tabs, Save, and Menu) do not accurately describe the given definition. Tabs refer to the different sections or categories in the Word interface, Save is a specific action to save a document, and Menu refers to the list of options available in Word. Therefore, the correct answer is Command.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Tabs → to store a new or existing file with the same name" is false.

    The statement "Undo repeats your last action" is false. The Undo function allows you to reverse the most recent action you performed, not repeat it. When you undo an action, it essentially undoes the changes made by that action and brings the system back to its previous state. This can be useful when you make a mistake and want to revert to the previous version or state.

    Explanation
    Nonprinting characters are symbols that are used to represent certain formatting commands in a document. These characters are not visible when the document is printed or displayed on the screen, but they are used to control the layout and formatting of the text. Examples of nonprinting characters include paragraph marks, tab characters, and line breaks. Therefore, the statement "Nonprinting characters are symbols for certain formatting commands" is true.

  • 32. 

    Groups → collections of related Word commands.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation

These groups make it easier for users to navigate and access the specific commands they need for their tasks. By organizing commands into groups, Word provides a more organized and efficient user interface for users to work with.
