    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    In Overtype mode, new text replaces the existing text.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In Overtype mode, the new text that is typed will replace the existing text. This means that when you type in Overtype mode, any characters you enter will overwrite the characters that were already there. This is different from Insert mode, where new text is inserted at the cursor position without deleting any existing text. Therefore, the statement "In Overtype mode, new text replaces the existing text" is true.

    Sometimes an action cannot be reversed.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true because there are certain actions or decisions that once taken, cannot be undone or reversed. These irreversible actions may have long-lasting consequences or impacts that cannot be easily undone or changed. Therefore, it is important to carefully consider the potential consequences before taking any action that cannot be reversed.

  • 4. 

    You can undo and redo multiple actions at one time.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    You can undo and redo multiple actions at one time, which means that you have the ability to reverse and redo several actions in a sequence. This feature is commonly found in various software applications, allowing users to easily correct mistakes or backtrack through their actions. By selecting the undo option, the previous actions are reversed, while the redo option allows the user to reapply those actions. This functionality enhances productivity and flexibility in tasks, as it provides the opportunity to experiment and make changes without the fear of irreversible consequences.

  • 5. 

    As you enter text, Word automatically checks the spelling of each word against its standard thesaurus.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Word does not check the spelling of each word against its standard thesaurus automatically. While Word does have a built-in spell check feature, it does not use the thesaurus to check for spelling errors. The thesaurus is a separate tool in Word that provides synonyms and antonyms for words, but it is not directly involved in the spell check process. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

      True

    Correct Answer

    Text color and underline are examples of character formats, not paragraph formats. Paragraph formats include alignment, indentation, and spacing, while character formats refer to the appearance of individual characters, such as font, size, color, and style.

    The default line spacing in Word is not double spacing. It is actually set to single spacing.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Bullets are used to list items when order does not matter.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Bullets are commonly used in lists to present information in a concise and organized manner. Unlike numbered lists, bullet points do not imply any specific order or hierarchy. Each item in a bulleted list is considered equal in importance and can be read in any order. Therefore, the statement that bullets are used when order does not matter is correct.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A manual page break is a command used in word processing software to force a new page to start. Once a manual page break is inserted, it will stay in that position until it is intentionally removed or deleted. This means that any content added after the page break will be placed on a new page. Therefore, the statement "A manual page break will remain where you insert it until it is deleted" is true.

The Repeat button essentially serves the same purpose as the Redo button in this context.
