I know that I have the wrong answers on some of these questions. Please just put
the number and the correct answer if I
am wrong on a question. I surely do appreciate your help!!

We eat out of Rice Bowls here. And we use chop sticks.

Here in Taiwan, when we go out to eat in large groups in traditional Taiwanese restaurants, you get your own bowl and chop sticks. The food is usually placed in the center of the table on a lazy susan and you select what you want and put it in your bowl. You then eat with your chop sticks.

Most places will have spoons. Others might have knives and forks. Usually, it's Westerners who eat with the utensils here.

To the OP:

I'm not sure about the font size. (question 11) And not at a computer that has Word right now. You can test it out.

#17 - I don't know anything about the Vector Photo Program. Isn't that a program that allows you to create/edit Vector photos? What the question seems to be asking about is a digital scanner. It's asking how to put the picture into your computer and that's what a scanner does.

The rest looked good.

Matt, are you sure number 16 is correct?

Also, would you please recheck all my
answers again?

I just feel uneasy about some of my answers. I know number 17 is wrong, but number 11 - I donot know if the answer is (A)72 or (B)36

please recheck my answers.

My apologies. I missed #16 somehow. I was reading through them one by one and checking the answers as I went. #16 must have slipped through as I was scrolling up and down.

#16 - JPG

A. GIF : Not enough colors. 256 colors is not enough to capture the breathtaking view of the Grand Canyon. So that's a "no."

B. BMP : Good Lord no!

C. JPG : Good choice. Yes.

D. PICT : used on Macs. This is asking about an XP. So no.

16 should be "c" I'm sorry I missed it.

We agree 17 is wrong. I gave the answer above.

#11 - I was at a computer that didn't have a computer to check it out. (It's hard to find the right program and select the right language sometimes when you're in Asia.) On my own computer now, size 100 gives me 1.5 inches if I type in capital letters. So assume that's the answer they're looking for.

Sorry about #16. My mistake for not catching it.


MattsRiceBowl, I am confused. On question #11,my text states "A font's size (in height)is measured in points. One point equals 1/2 of an inch,so 72 points equal one inch."

So, would my answer for question #11
be 72 point, or do I divide half of
72 to give me 36. I am very confused on this question. Should I go with (A)72
or (B)36?

Also, do I have question # 14 correct?
You didn't say anything about it being wrong.

a 72 point
b 32 p

a 72
b 36
c 18
d 100 point

a 72 point
b 36 point
c18 point
d 100 point
