    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement is true. Personal information refers to any details that can disclose an individual's residence, identity, and age. This can include information such as address, name, date of birth, and other identifying factors. It is important to protect personal information to maintain privacy and prevent unauthorized access or misuse.

    A way to prevent identity theft is to not put all of your personal information online where everyone can see it.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    By stating that "A way to prevent identity theft is to not put all of your personal information online where everyone can see it," the answer implies that sharing personal information online increases the risk of identity theft. By not disclosing personal information on public platforms, individuals can minimize the chances of their sensitive data falling into the wrong hands and being misused for fraudulent activities.

      True

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    E-mail is not sending messages through broken computers. E-mail is a method of sending electronic messages from one computer to another over a network. The state or condition of the computers involved in the process does not determine whether or not e-mail messages can be sent. Therefore, the statement is false.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the population of the United States is approximately 331 million people, so it is not possible for 2.6 billion people to have email accounts in the U.S.
