    When you type www.facebook.com into your web browser, the browser must search for a "default" file before it can display anything to you.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When you type www.facebook.com into your web browser, the browser needs to search for a "default" file before it can display anything to you. This suggests that the browser is looking for a specific file to load as the default page for the website, which is usually the homepage. This is true because browsers typically require a default file to be present in order to render the initial content of a website.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    What would be an example of a default file (or index file) for http://www.facebook.com?

    index.php
    index.asp
    index.htm
    Explanation
    The correct answer is index.html, /index.html, index.php, index.asp, index.htm. These are examples of default files or index files that could be used for the website http://www.facebook.com. When a user visits a website without specifying a specific file or page, the server will look for one of these default files to display as the homepage. The server will try to find these files in the root directory of the website or in any specified subdirectories.

    A URL is an address you type in your web browser to find a particular page on the web.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true because a URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is indeed an address that you enter into a web browser to locate a specific webpage on the internet. URLs consist of various components, including the protocol (such as HTTP or HTTPS), the domain name, and the path to the specific page or resource. By typing a URL into a web browser, users can access and navigate to the desired webpage.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    URL stands for Uniform Record Locator. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is incorrect. URL stands for Uniform Resource Locator, not Uniform Record Locator. A URL is a specific type of identifier that defines the location of a resource on the internet. It is commonly used to access web pages, files, and other resources on the World Wide Web.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Every computer (or server) on the internet has its own IP address number. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Every computer or server on the internet is assigned a unique IP address, which acts as its identifier. This IP address allows the computer or server to send and receive data over the internet. Without an IP address, it would be impossible for computers to communicate with each other on the internet. Therefore, it is true that every computer or server on the internet has its own IP address number.

    • D.

      It matches and connects domain names to IP addresses.

    Correct Answer
    D. It matches and connects domain names to IP addresses.
    Explanation
    The domain name system (DNS) is responsible for matching and connecting domain names to IP addresses. When a user types in a domain name (e.g., www.example.com) in their web browser, the DNS translates that domain name into the corresponding IP address (e.g., 192.0.2.1) that the web server is located at. This allows the user's computer to establish a connection with the correct server and retrieve the requested web page. The DNS acts as a directory service for the internet, facilitating the communication between domain names and IP addresses.
