    Correct Answer
    E. It depends on what type of record it is and whether I created it
    Explanation
    The length of time you should keep your records depends on the type of record and whether you created it. Certain records, such as tax documents, should be kept for a specific number of years as required by law. Other records, such as personal financial statements, may need to be kept indefinitely for reference or legal reasons. Ultimately, the decision on how long to keep records should be based on their importance and relevance to your personal or professional life.

      A record that is used on a regular basis

    • B.

      A record that has just been created

    • C.

      A record that has been consulted recently

    Correct Answer
    A. A record that is used on a regular basis

    An active record refers to a record that is regularly utilized or accessed. This implies that it is not a record that has just been created or consulted recently, but rather one that is actively used in ongoing operations or processes.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The County has sole responsibility for deciding which records can be kept or disposed.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the correct answer being False is that the County does not have sole responsibility for deciding which records can be kept or disposed. In most cases, there are laws and regulations that dictate how long certain records must be kept before they can be disposed of. Additionally, there may be other entities or agencies involved in the decision-making process, such as state or federal authorities. Therefore, the County does not have complete autonomy in this matter.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Records can be stored in many different formats.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Records can indeed be stored in many different formats. This is because different systems and applications may have their own preferred formats for storing and organizing data. Some common formats include text files, spreadsheets, databases, and XML files. Each format has its own advantages and disadvantages, and the choice of format often depends on the specific requirements and constraints of the system or application. Therefore, the statement "Records can be stored in many different formats" is true.
