    Explanation
    To get multiple columns of text on a web page, it is best to use tables. Tables allow for the creation of rows and columns, making it easy to organize and display content in a structured format. By using table elements, developers can specify the number of columns and control the placement of text within each cell. This ensures that the content is displayed in a visually appealing and organized manner, making tables the ideal choice for creating multiple columns on a web page.

    To make a web page accessible to students with limited vision, your images should include...

    • A.

      Audio descriptions

    • B.

      High-contrast colors

    • C.

      Alt tags with all images

    • D.

      Frames

    Correct Answer
    C. Alt tags with all images
    Explanation
    Alt tags with all images should be included to make a web page accessible to students with limited vision. Alt tags, or alternative text, provide a textual description of the image, allowing screen readers to read the description aloud to the user. This ensures that visually impaired students can understand the content and context of the images on the web page. Audio descriptions may also be helpful for students with limited vision, but they are not mentioned as a requirement in the question. High-contrast colors and frames are not directly related to making images accessible for students with limited vision.

    • D.

      Water flowing through a pipe.

    Correct Answer
    D. Water flowing through a pipe.
    Explanation
    Bandwidth refers to the maximum amount of data that can be transmitted over a network in a given period of time. Just like water flowing through a pipe, bandwidth represents the flow of data through a network. Similar to how the size of a pipe determines the amount of water that can pass through it, the bandwidth of a network determines the amount of data that can be transmitted. Therefore, the comparison of bandwidth to water flowing through a pipe is the most appropriate analogy.

      Firewalls

    • C.

      Spybots

    • D.

      Insulators

    Correct Answer
    B. Firewalls
    Explanation
    Firewalls are essential for keeping out hackers as they act as a barrier between a computer or server and the internet, monitoring and filtering incoming and outgoing network traffic. They can block unauthorized access attempts, prevent malicious software from entering the system, and detect and alert the user about suspicious activities. While antivirus software and spybots are also important for protecting against malware, firewalls specifically focus on preventing unauthorized access and are crucial for network security. Insulators, on the other hand, are not relevant to computer security and do not provide any protection against hackers.
