Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Made up of pixels; images have jagged edges

    • A.

      Bitmap (raster)

    • B.

      Vector

    Correct Answer
    A. Bitmap (raster)
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that the images are made up of pixels and have jagged edges. This characteristic is commonly associated with bitmap or raster images. Bitmap images are composed of a grid of pixels, where each pixel represents a specific color. Due to the fixed resolution of pixels, when a bitmap image is enlarged, the individual pixels become more visible, resulting in jagged edges. On the other hand, vector images use mathematical equations to define shapes and lines, allowing for smooth edges regardless of the size. Therefore, the correct answer is bitmap (raster).

  • 3. 

    Created in paint programs

    • A.

      Vector

    • B.

      Bitmap

    Correct Answer
    B. Bitmap
    Explanation
    Bitmap refers to an image format that is created using a grid of pixels, where each pixel contains specific color information. This format is commonly used in paint programs to create and edit images. Unlike vector graphics, which use mathematical equations to define shapes and lines, bitmap images are resolution-dependent and can appear pixelated when scaled up. Therefore, the given correct answer suggests that the images created in paint programs are in the bitmap format.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What kind of images are resolution dependent

    Correct Answer
    bitmap
    Explanation
    Bitmap images are resolution dependent, meaning that their quality and clarity are determined by the number of pixels per inch (PPI) or dots per inch (DPI) that make up the image. Higher resolution bitmap images have more pixels, resulting in sharper and more detailed images, while lower resolution images have fewer pixels, leading to a loss of detail and potential pixelation. This dependency on resolution makes bitmap images suitable for certain applications, such as print media, where high-resolution images are required for optimal quality.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Since bitmap images are resolution dependent, is it difficult or easy to increase or decrease their size

    Correct Answer

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Refers to the quality of an image

    • A.

      Interpolation

    • B.

      Resolution

    • C.

      Rasterizing

    Correct Answer
    B. Resolution
    Explanation
    Resolution refers to the quality of an image, specifically the level of detail and clarity it possesses. It is a measure of the number of pixels or dots per inch (dpi) that an image contains. A higher resolution means more pixels or dots, resulting in a sharper and more detailed image. Interpolation is a method used to increase the resolution of an image by estimating missing pixels or dots. Rasterizing is the process of converting vector graphics into raster images.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Which has a smaller file size: bitmap or vector

    Correct Answer
    vector
    Explanation
    Vector graphics have a smaller file size compared to bitmap images. This is because vector graphics are created using mathematical equations and geometric shapes, which require less storage space compared to the pixel-based information stored in bitmap images. Vector graphics can be scaled up or down without losing quality, as they are resolution-independent. On the other hand, bitmap images are made up of a grid of pixels, and each pixel contains color information, resulting in larger file sizes. Therefore, vector graphics are more efficient in terms of file size.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    The amount of color information in a pixel

    Correct Answer
    bit resolution
    Explanation
    Bit resolution refers to the number of bits used to represent the color information in a pixel. It determines the level of detail and accuracy in representing colors. A higher bit resolution means more bits are used, allowing for a larger number of possible color combinations and thus more accurate and detailed representation of colors. Conversely, a lower bit resolution means fewer bits are used, resulting in a limited range of colors that can be accurately represented. Therefore, bit resolution directly affects the quality and fidelity of color reproduction in digital images.

    Higher resolution equals

    • A.

      Worse quality

    • B.

      Better quality

    • C.

      No change

    Correct Answer
    B. Better quality
    Explanation
    In the context of resolution, a higher resolution refers to a greater number of pixels or dots per inch, resulting in a clearer and more detailed image. Therefore, a higher resolution generally leads to better quality.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    Better quality equals

    • A.

      Higher file size

    • B.

      Lower file size

    • C.

      No change

    Correct Answer
    A. Higher file size
    Explanation
    When it comes to digital files, better quality often means higher file size. This is because higher quality files contain more information and detail, resulting in larger file sizes. This is especially true for media files such as images, videos, and audio, where higher quality versions require more data to accurately represent the content. On the other hand, lower quality files are compressed or have reduced data, leading to smaller file sizes. Therefore, in this context, better quality is directly proportional to a higher file size.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Amount of pixels (data) used to create an image (2 words)

    Correct Answer
    image resolution
    Explanation
    The term "image resolution" refers to the amount of pixels or data used to create an image. It indicates the level of detail and clarity in an image, with higher resolutions providing sharper and more detailed images. The resolution is determined by the number of pixels in the width and height of the image, commonly measured in pixels per inch (PPI) or dots per inch (DPI). A higher resolution means more pixels are used, resulting in a higher quality image.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    Higher image resolution equals

    • A.

      Fewer pixels

    • B.

      No change

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    The higher the resolution, the file size gets: smaller or larger

    Correct Answer
    larger
    Explanation
    As the resolution of a file increases, the amount of information and detail in the file also increases. This means that more pixels are used to display the image, resulting in a larger file size. Therefore, the higher the resolution, the larger the file size becomes.
