    Which of the following is NOT an acceptable resource to cite on a bibliography?

    • A.

      Www. ciaworldfactbook.com

    • B.

      Www.google.com

    • C.

      Www.ncdenr.gov

    Correct Answer
    B. Www.google.com
    Explanation
    While www.google.com is a popular search engine and can provide information, it is not an acceptable resource to cite on a bibliography because it is a search engine and not a specific source. It is important to cite reliable and authoritative sources such as scholarly articles, books, or government websites like www.ncdenr.gov. The CIA World Factbook (www.ciaworldfactbook.com) is also an acceptable resource as it provides accurate information about countries.

    Which of the following Internet search terms would likely return the MOST results?

    • A.

      Africa

    • B.

      Africa + 21st century

    • C.

      Africa + 21st Century + Human Rights Violations

    Correct Answer
    A. Africa
    Explanation
    The search term "Africa" would likely return the most results because it is the broadest term among the options given. Searching for just "Africa" would encompass a wide range of topics related to the continent, including its geography, history, culture, wildlife, and more. On the other hand, the other search terms include more specific criteria such as "21st century" and "human rights violations," which would narrow down the results and potentially yield fewer matches.

  • 5. 

    Which of the following Internet search terms would likely return the LEAST results?

    • A.

      Africa

    • B.

      Africa + 21st Century

    • C.

      Africa + 21st Century + Human Rights Violations

    Correct Answer
    C. Africa + 21st Century + Human Rights Violations
    Explanation
    The search term "Africa + 21st Century + Human Rights Violations" would likely return the least results because it is the most specific and narrow search term among the options given. By adding additional keywords such as "21st Century" and "Human Rights Violations," the search is limited to a more specific topic within the broader term "Africa." This would likely narrow down the search results and return fewer relevant pages compared to the other options.

    Which of the following Internet search terms would likely return the MOST USEFUL search results if you wanted to find an example of a current human rights violation in Africa?

    • A.

      Africa

    • B.

      Africa + 21st Century

    • C.

      Africa + 21st Century + Human Rights Violations

    Correct Answer
    C. Africa + 21st Century + Human Rights Violations
    Explanation
    The search term "Africa + 21st Century + Human Rights Violations" would likely return the most useful search results because it combines specific keywords related to the topic. Including "Africa" ensures that the search results are focused on the continent, while adding "21st Century" narrows down the results to current examples. Finally, including "Human Rights Violations" further specifies the type of information being sought, resulting in more relevant and targeted search results.
