    The first cell in EXCEL worksheet is labeled as

    • A.

      AA

    • B.

      A1

    • C.

      Aa

    • D.

      A0

    Correct Answer
    B. A1
    Explanation
    The first cell in an Excel worksheet is labeled as A1. This is because Excel follows a specific naming convention for its cells, where the column letter is followed by the row number. In this case, the letter "A" represents the first column, and the number "1" represents the first row, hence the cell is labeled as A1.

    What happens when dollar signs ($) are entered in a cell address? (ex. $B$2:$B$10)

    • A.

      An absolute cell address is created.

    Correct Answer
    A. An absolute cell address is created.
    Explanation
    When dollar signs ($) are entered in a cell address, an absolute cell address is created. This means that the cell reference will not change when it is copied to another cell. The dollar signs lock the column and row references, making it an absolute reference. This is useful when you want to refer to a specific cell or range of cells in a formula and you don't want the reference to change when copied to other cells.

    The best way to show the monthly rainfall in Nepal in a report would be to insert a chart showing rainfall amounts. This would provide a visual representation of the data, allowing the reader to easily understand and compare the rainfall amounts for different months. A chart would also allow for the inclusion of additional information such as average rainfall, trends, or any other relevant data points. This method is more effective than using a calendar or photograph, as it provides a clear and concise presentation of the information.

Spreadsheets allow for easy data entry and organization, as well as the ability to perform calculations and create charts and graphs. This would enable the user to input the experiment data, calculate the rate of crystal growth, and create a visual representation of the data in the form of a chart.

    You are editing an worksheet that you had previously saved. If you want to save the edited sheet without losing the original one, which command should you use?

    • A.

      New

    • B.

      Save As

    • C.

      Edit

    • D.

      Save

    Correct Answer
    B. Save As
    Explanation
    To save the edited worksheet without losing the original one, the command "Save As" should be used. This command allows you to create a new copy of the worksheet with the changes made, while keeping the original version intact. By using "Save As," you can specify a new name or location for the edited sheet, ensuring that both versions are preserved.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    If you want to have a blank line after the title in a worksheet, what is the best thing for you to do?

    • A.

      Re-format the spreadsheet

    • B.

      Insert a row

    • C.

      Increase the column width

    • D.

      Use the spacebar

    Correct Answer
    B. Insert a row
    Explanation
    To have a blank line after the title in a worksheet, the best thing to do is to insert a row. This will create a new row below the title, effectively giving a blank line for separation. Re-formatting the spreadsheet might involve more complex and unnecessary changes, increasing the column width would only affect the width and not create a blank line, and using the spacebar is not recommended as it can disrupt the formatting and alignment of the worksheet. Therefore, inserting a row is the most appropriate solution.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    In order to arrange the countries from those with the highest population to those with the lowest, you need to sort on the population field in _____________

    • A.

      Ascending order

    • B.

      Descending order

    • C.

      Alphabetical order

    • D.

      Random order

    Correct Answer
    B. Descending order
    Explanation
    To arrange the countries from highest to lowest population, you need to sort them in descending order. This means that the countries with the highest population will be listed first, followed by those with lower populations. Sorting in ascending order would list the countries with the lowest population first, which is not what is required in this case. Alphabetical order would sort the countries based on their names, not their population. Random order would not provide any logical arrangement based on population.

      Field

    • D.

      Variable

    Correct Answer
    B. Formula

    To perform a calculation in a spreadsheet, you need to use a formula. A formula is a set of instructions that tells the spreadsheet how to calculate a specific result based on the values in the cells. It can include mathematical operations, cell references, and functions. By using formulas, you can automate calculations and update them easily when the input data changes.

    A fast way to add up this column of numbers is to click in the cell below the numbers and then:

    • A.

      Click Subtotals on the Data menu.

    • B.

      View the sum in the formula bar.

    • C.

      Click the AutoSum button on the Standard toolbar, then press ENTER.

    Correct Answer
    C. Click the AutoSum button on the Standard toolbar, then press ENTER.
    Explanation
    The fastest way to add up the column of numbers is to click the AutoSum button on the Standard toolbar and then press ENTER. This is because the AutoSum button automatically selects the range of cells above it and adds them up, saving time and effort. Pressing ENTER confirms the sum and displays the result in the selected cell. The other options mentioned, such as using Subtotals on the Data menu or viewing the sum in the formula bar, may also work but are not as efficient or straightforward as using the AutoSum button.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Say that you want to paste a formula result — but not the underlying formula — to another cell. You would copy the cell with the formula, then place the insertion point in the cell you want to copy to. What next?

    • A.

    • B.

      Click the arrow on the Paste button on the Standard toolbar, then click Formulas.

    Correct Answer
    C. Click the arrow on the Paste button on the Standard toolbar, then click Values.
    Explanation
    To paste a formula result without the underlying formula to another cell, you would first copy the cell with the formula. Then, you would place the insertion point in the cell where you want to paste the result. Next, you would click the arrow on the Paste button on the Standard toolbar, and finally, select the "Values" option. This will paste only the calculated value of the formula to the desired cell.

    Correct Answer
    B. Double-click the boundary to the right of the column heading.
    Explanation
    To change the column width to fit the contents, you need to double-click the boundary to the right of the column heading. By doing so, the column width will automatically adjust to accommodate the widest content within that column.

      You've misspelled something.

    • C.

      The cell is not wide enough.

    Correct Answer
    C. The cell is not wide enough.
    Explanation
    This answer suggests that the reason for the issue is that the cell in question is not wide enough to display the information correctly. This could be the case if the content in the cell is being cut off or not fully visible due to the limited width of the cell. To resolve this, the cell width could be adjusted to accommodate the content properly.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    To add a new row, click a cell in the row immediately above where you want the new row.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    To add a new row in a table, you need to click on a cell in the row immediately below where you want the new row to be added, not above. Therefore, the statement "To add a new row, click a cell in the row immediately above where you want the new row" is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 22.

    Explanation
    To group two or more nonadjacent worksheets in Excel, you need to press the SHIFT key. This allows you to select multiple worksheets that are not next to each other and perform actions on them simultaneously, such as formatting or entering data. By holding down the SHIFT key and selecting the desired worksheets, you can easily group them together and make changes that apply to all selected sheets at once.

    Rate this question:

  • 23.
