    When you delete a row or column, the text in the cells is also deleted.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When you delete a row or column in a spreadsheet, all the text and data within the cells of that row or column are also deleted. This means that any information contained in those cells will be permanently removed from the spreadsheet. Therefore, the statement "When you delete a row or column, the text in the cells is also deleted" is true.

    Tables can include text, numbers, or graphics.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Tables can indeed include text, numbers, or graphics. This is because tables are a way to organize and present data in a structured format. They are commonly used in various contexts such as spreadsheets, databases, and web pages to display information in rows and columns. The cells within a table can contain any type of content, including text, numerical values, and even images or other graphical elements.

    You can merge cells horizontally, but not vertically.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Cells in a table can be merged both horizontally and vertically. When cells are merged horizontally, the content of multiple cells in the same row is combined into a single cell. Similarly, when cells are merged vertically, the content of multiple cells in the same column is combined into a single cell. Therefore, the statement that only horizontal merging is possible is incorrect.

    The statement is true because the Cut, Copy, and Paste commands are commonly used to edit text in tables. These commands allow users to move or duplicate text within a table or between different tables.
