      When you begin working on it.

    • B.

      When you're finished and are ready to print

    • C.

    • D.

      All of the above.

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above.
    Explanation
    The best time to save a document you're working on can vary depending on the situation. Saving when you begin working on it ensures that you don't lose any progress in case of unexpected events like power outages or computer crashes. Saving when you're finished and ready to print ensures that you have a final version saved for future reference or editing. Saving anytime is always good as it minimizes the risk of losing your work and allows you to have multiple versions to revert to if needed. Therefore, all of the above options are valid choices for the best time to save a document.

    I need to indent the first line of my paragraph. To do this I would:

    • A.

      Use the SHIFT key

    • B.

      Use the TAB key

    • C.

      Use the SPACEBAR

    Correct Answer
    B. Use the TAB key
    Explanation
    To indent the first line of a paragraph, you would use the TAB key. Pressing the TAB key moves the cursor to the right, creating an indentation at the beginning of the line. This is a commonly used method in word processing software to visually separate paragraphs or highlight important information. Using the SHIFT key does not have any effect on indentation, and using the SPACEBAR may create inconsistent or uneven indentations.

    In order to change a FONT on a document that I've already typed, choose the answer that will accomplish that task.

    • A.

      Just click on number 6 and choose your font

    • B.

      Highlight what you want to change, then click on number 6.

    • C.

      Click on number 6 then on number 7.

    Correct Answer
    B. Highlight what you want to change, then click on number 6.
    Explanation
    To change the font on a document that has already been typed, the correct answer suggests highlighting the text that needs to be changed and then clicking on number 6. This implies that number 6 is likely a menu or toolbar option that allows the user to select a different font. By following these steps, the user can easily change the font of the selected text in the document.

    Explanation
    The number 5 is the correct answer because it is the only option that aligns with the question's prompt, which asks for the buttons used to align text in the menu. The other numbers (3, 7, and 2) do not align with the question's prompt and are therefore incorrect.

    Font, border and shading are examples of

    • A.

      Character styles

    • B.

      Paragraph styles

    • C.

      Document formatting

    Correct Answer
    A. Character styles
    Explanation
    Font, border, and shading are examples of character styles. Character styles are formatting attributes that are applied to individual characters or words within a document. They allow for consistent and efficient formatting by applying a predefined set of formatting options such as font, size, color, and effects to selected text. In this case, font refers to the typeface used for the characters, border refers to the outline or frame around the characters, and shading refers to the background color or pattern applied to the characters. These formatting options are all part of character styles.

This can be useful when you want to start a new chapter, insert a table of contents, or have different formatting on specific pages. By adding a page break or a section break, you can control the layout and appearance of your document more effectively.
