    D. Dots per inch
    Explanation
    DPI stands for "dots per inch". This refers to the measurement of the resolution or clarity of an image or printed material.

      200 dpi

    • B.

      112 dpi

    Correct Answer
    D. 72 dpi
    Explanation
    The resolution of an image that should be used for a website is typically 72 dpi. This is because the standard screen resolution for most devices is 72 pixels per inch. Using a higher resolution would result in a larger file size, which could slow down the website's loading time. Therefore, 72 dpi is the most suitable resolution for web images to ensure optimal quality and fast loading speed.
