    E. 1 and 2
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 1 and 2. Linux and Windows are two of the most commonly used operating systems. Linux is an open-source operating system that is popular among developers and tech enthusiasts. Windows, developed by Microsoft, is widely used by individuals and businesses for its user-friendly interface and compatibility with a wide range of software. Google, on the other hand, is not an operating system but a technology company known for its search engine and various online services. Therefore, options 3 and 4 are incorrect.

      All of the above

    • E.

      2 and 3 only

    Correct Answer
    E. 2 and 3 only
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "2 and 3 only". In the Windows operating system, you will have a toolbar and a file manager. Safari is not a built-in browser in Windows, so it is not included. Therefore, the correct answer is 2 and 3 only.

    An input device is

    • A.

      A mouse and a printer

    • C.

      A mouse and a keyboard

    • D.

      1 and 3 only

    Correct Answer
    C. A mouse and a keyboard
    Explanation
    An input device is a hardware device that allows users to input data or commands into a computer system. In this case, a mouse and a keyboard are both examples of input devices as they enable users to interact with the computer by providing input. A mouse allows users to control the movement of the cursor on the screen, while a keyboard allows users to input text and commands. Therefore, options 1 and 3, which include a mouse and a keyboard, are the correct choices for input devices.

    Correct Answer
    E. 1 only
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "1 only" because the statement "A mini and a micro USB have the same transfer speed" is true. This means that both the mini and micro USB cables have the same speed when transferring data. However, the other statements in the question, such as "they are the same size" and "they both transfer data from a desktop to a smaller device" are not necessarily true. The size and purpose of the cables can vary, but their transfer speed remains the same.

It also supports higher power delivery, allowing for faster charging of devices. Additionally, USB-C is a versatile connector that can be used for various devices, including laptops, smartphones, and tablets.

    • C.

      Is a good option if you need to transfer large portions of data

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. None of the above
    Explanation
    Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows devices to connect and communicate with each other without the need for a modem. It has a transfer rate of up to 3 Mbps, which is much lower than 480 Mbps mentioned in the options. While Bluetooth can be used to transfer data, it is not the best option for transferring large portions of data due to its slower transfer rate compared to other technologies like Wi-Fi or USB. Therefore, the correct answer is "none of the above".

      A router

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "all of the above" because a network infrastructure includes various components such as the internet, wired and wireless connections, and a router. The internet is the global network of interconnected computers and devices that allows communication and information sharing. Wired and wireless connections refer to the different methods of connecting devices to the network, such as Ethernet cables or Wi-Fi. A router is a device that connects multiple devices to a network and directs data traffic between them. Therefore, all of these options are part of a network infrastructure.

    PII stands for Personally Identifiable Information, which refers to any information that can be used to identify an individual, such as their name, address, social security number, or email address. The given options, "personal internet identity" and "personal intranet identity," do not accurately represent the meaning of PII. Therefore, the correct answer is "neither."

      Make sure the website is secure

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Use top level domains
    Explanation
    Using top level domains can help conduct a relevant search because they indicate the type of website or organization the user is looking for. For example, using ".edu" for educational institutions or ".gov" for government websites can narrow down the search results and provide more accurate and reliable information. This ensures that the search results are more relevant and aligned with the user's specific needs or interests.

    • C.

      SA

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. SA
    Explanation
    Creative common conditions are used with a copyright license to provide a way for an author to make their work public. The use of creative commons allows the author to retain certain rights while also granting others the permission to use, share, and build upon their work. This includes the option to allow for commercial use or require that any derivative works be shared under the same conditions (ShareAlike - SA). Therefore, the correct answer is "all of the above" as all the statements mentioned are true.
