    The information on your computer is organized into ___________ and _____________ .

    The correct answer is "files and folders."

Both files and folders are essential components of organizing and managing data on a computer.

    On your computer screen, all folders and files are represented by images called  ___________ .

    On a computer screen, folders and files are represented by small graphical images called icons. Icons are visual representations that help users identify and access different folders and files on their computer. They are designed to be intuitive and easily recognizable, often depicting a simplified image or symbol that represents the content or function of the folder or file it represents. Icons play a crucial role in graphical user interfaces, making it easier for users to navigate and interact with their computer system.

    To make a window full size, you need to click on the "maximize" icon in the upper right-hand corner. This icon is usually represented by a square or a set of arrows pointing outward.

  • 10. 

    A program is neither a file nor a folder.  True or False?

    • A.


    • B.


    Correct Answer
    B. True
    A program is not a file or a folder because it is a set of instructions or code that can be stored in a file or a folder, but it is not the same as the file or folder itself. A program needs to be executed or run by a computer or device in order to perform its intended functions, whereas a file is a container for storing data and a folder is a container for organizing files. Therefore, a program is separate from the file or folder that contains it.
