Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    You place the insertion point in the middle of a paragraph and start typing. But the new text deletes existing text. What's the problem and how do you fix it? 

    • A.

      Word is in Overtype mode. Press BACKSPACE and retype.

    • B.

      The DELETE key is pressed in. Press DELETE again.

    • C.

      Word is in Overtype mode. Press INSERT to turn it off.

    Correct Answer
    C. Word is in Overtype mode. Press INSERT to turn it off.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that Word is in Overtype mode and pressing INSERT will turn it off. In Overtype mode, any new text typed will replace the existing text instead of inserting it. By pressing the INSERT key, the mode can be toggled off, allowing new text to be inserted without deleting the existing text.

    Once you've deleted the text, you can't get it back.

    • A.

      TRUE

    • B.

      FALSE

    Correct Answer
    B. FALSE
    Explanation
    Once you've deleted the text, you can't get it back. This statement is false because in many cases, deleted text can be recovered using data recovery software or by restoring from a backup. Additionally, some applications have features that allow users to undo or retrieve deleted text. Therefore, it is not always true that once text is deleted, it cannot be recovered.

    The best way to create a heading in a document is to:

    • A.

      Apply a larger font size to it than the body text.

    • B.

      Add bold formatting by clicking the Bold button on the Formatting toolbar.

    • C.

      Apply a heading style.

    • D.

      Option 4

    Correct Answer
    C. Apply a heading style.
    Explanation
    The best way to create a heading in a document is to apply a heading style. This is because heading styles not only change the font size but also apply consistent formatting throughout the document. By using heading styles, headings can be easily distinguished from the body text, and any changes made to the style will automatically be applied to all headings in the document. This ensures a professional and cohesive look for the document.

    Explanation
    To save an existing document with a different name, you need to use the "Save as..." command. This command allows you to create a copy of the document and give it a new name, without altering the original document. It is a convenient feature in most document editing software that allows you to easily create multiple versions or variations of a document while preserving the original.

    A document in portrait prints:

    • A.

      The same characters per line with the same document in landscape.

    • B.

      More characters per line than the same document in landscape.

    • C.

      Less characters per line than the same document in landscape.

    • D.

      Smaller fonts in order to fit the same amount of characters per line with landscape.

    Correct Answer
    C. Less characters per line than the same document in landscape.
    Explanation
    In portrait orientation, the document prints with less characters per line compared to the same document in landscape orientation. This is because the width of the page is narrower in portrait mode, causing the text to wrap and fit fewer characters on each line.

This method provides a keyboard alternative to mouse-based text highlighting.
