    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    How do you know a word is a link on a website?

    • A.

      It tuns green

    • B.

      It turns into a hand

    • C.

      It smiles

    Correct Answer
    B. It turns into a hand
    Explanation
    When browsing a website, a word is indicated as a link when it turns into a hand. This is a common practice in web design to visually distinguish clickable links from regular text. By changing the cursor to a hand icon, it provides a clear visual cue to the user that they can click on that word to navigate to another page or website. The color or appearance of the link does not necessarily indicate that it is clickable, but the change in cursor to a hand is a reliable indicator.
