    Explanation
    e-talk is the correct answer because it refers to a set of protocols that enable two individuals to engage in an interactive dialogue through a computer. It can be considered as a form of online communication or chat platform where users can exchange messages in real-time. The term "e-talk" is a combination of "e" which stands for electronic and "talk" which represents the act of conversing or communicating.

      Bold letters

    Correct Answer
    B. Mix case letters
    Explanation
    When using E-Talk, it is recommended to use mix case letters. This means using a combination of both uppercase and lowercase letters. Using mix case letters helps to improve readability and comprehension in written communication. It also adds emphasis and clarity to important words or phrases. Using all uppercase or all lowercase letters can make the text difficult to read and understand. Therefore, using mix case letters is the best practice for effective communication in E-Talk.

Writing out more than 70 characters may be considered excessive and could potentially hinder effective communication in this context.

This is a common practice in online communication to indicate the end of a message or paragraph. By leaving a couple of blank lines after our message, we give the recipient a clear visual cue that our message has concluded and they can start typing their response.
