    Which is the correct HTML codes for a vertical frameset with 3 frames 

    • A.

      The tag - frameset cols= “500,250,250"

    • B.

      The tag - frames = “50%, 25%, 25%”

    • C.

      The tag - frameset cols=50%,25%,25%

    • D.

      The tag - frameset rows="50%,25%,25%"

    Correct Answer
    A. The tag - frameset cols= “500,250,250"
    Explanation
    The correct HTML code for a vertical frameset with 3 frames is "the tag - frameset cols= “500,250,250" because the "cols" attribute specifies the width of each frame in pixels. In this case, the first frame will have a width of 500 pixels, the second frame will have a width of 250 pixels, and the third frame will also have a width of 250 pixels. This will create a vertical frameset with 3 frames of different widths.

      The tag - frameset src="web_1.htm"

    • D.

      The tag - frameset src="web_1.html"

    Correct Answer
    B. The tag - frame src="web_1.htm"
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the tag - frame src="web_1.htm". This is because the "frame" tag is used to define an individual frame within a frameset, and the "src" attribute specifies the source file (in this case, "web_1.htm") to be displayed within the frame.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    The frameset column size value can be set in pixels (cols="200,500"), and one of the columns can be set to use the remaining space using a wildcard asterisk *  for the actual value. Which of the following would be appropriate for a 3 column using a wildcard

    • A.

      The tag ("3 column, 200, *, *")

    • B.

      The tag - frameset cols="500,200,300"

    • C.

      The tag - frameset cols= “200,*,250”

    • D.

      The tag - frameset cols= “50%,250,*”

    Correct Answer
    C. The tag - frameset cols= “200,*,250”
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the tag - frameset cols= “200,*,250”. This is because the wildcard asterisk (*) is used to allocate the remaining space to one of the columns, and in this case, it is used to allocate the remaining space to the second column. The first column is set to a fixed size of 200 pixels, the second column will take up the remaining space, and the third column is set to a fixed size of 250 pixels.

By using frames, web designers have more flexibility in how they present information to users, resulting in a more visually engaging and dynamic website.

    Explanation
    An external JavaScript file is included in an HTML document using the tag.

Therefore, the statement "An external JavaScript must contain the tag" is true.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      The body section

    • B.

    • C.

      It must be inserted in the body and head section

    • D.

      It can be inserted in either the body or the head, as it makes no difference

    Correct Answer
    A. The body section
    Explanation
    The correct place to insert JavaScript is in the body section of an HTML document. This is because JavaScript code is meant to manipulate the content and behavior of the webpage, and it needs access to the HTML elements in order to do so. By placing the JavaScript code in the body section, it ensures that the HTML elements have been loaded and are accessible for manipulation. Placing JavaScript in the head section may cause issues as the code may run before the HTML elements are loaded.

    Explanation
    User verification is not a use of JavaScript. JavaScript is primarily used for enhancing the functionality and interactivity of websites, such as browser detection, manipulating cookies, and validating form inputs. User verification typically involves authentication processes, such as verifying usernames and passwords, which are usually handled by server-side programming languages like PHP or ASP.NET.
