Question 1

Which of the following will the standard word processing application do?

  • A. Allow you to work with more than one document at a time

  • B. Help you analyze numbers and accounting elements

  • C. Offer options for saving and formatting text in a professional and appropriate manner

  • D. Help you personalize form letters quicker and more efficiently


Answers A, C, and D are correct. A word processing application is capable of multitasking, helping you format text, and providing mail merge capabilities. Answer B is incorrect. Although some word processing applications can calculate simple mathematical operations with values in tables, that isn't its primary focus and the feature is usually limited.

Question 2

When working with more than one document, how do you switch between documents?

  • A. Choose a document from the Window menu.

  • B. Choose a minimized document icon from the Windows taskbar.

  • C. Press F6.

  • D. Press Alt+Tab to cycle through all the windows.


Answers A and B are correct. Answer D is correct but not the most efficient method because the keystroke combination cycles through all the open windows on your system, not just the open word processing documents. Answer C is incorrect; it does not select an open but inactive window.

Question 3

You can do which of the following with text in a word processing document:

  • A. Enter, edit, and delete it

  • B. Automatically translate it to another language

  • C. Move it from one document to another

  • D. Copy it from one area of the document to another


Answers A, C, and D are correct. You can enter, edit, delete, move, and copy text in a word processing application. Answer B is incorrect; Word does not offer any automatic translation facilities.

Question 4

How would you replace a multiple occurring word or phrase?

  • A. Find each occurrence and overwrite it with the new text.

  • B. Hold down the Ctrl key while highlighting each occurrence and then replacing them all at one time.

  • C. Use the Find and Replace feature.


Answer C is correct. Answer A would work but would be very inefficient. Answer B is incorrect.

Question 5

You can apply formatting at many levels throughout your document. Which of the following is a legitimate formatting level within in a normal document?

  • A. Object

  • B. Paragraph

  • C. Printer

  • D. Text

  • E. Document


Answers B, D, and E are correct. Answer A is incorrect; although you can format an object such as a picture, that formatting is unique to the object. Answer C is incorrect; you can't format text at the printer level because there's no such level.

Question 6

Most word processors are flexible when it comes to printing the document. Match the following settings to the results listed below:

  • A. Pages option is set to 18

  • B. Number of Copies setting is set to 3

  • C. Pages option is set to 1, 8

  • D. Page Range option is set to All

  • 1. Pages 1 and 8

  • 2. All the pages in the document

  • 3. Pages 1 through 8

  • 4. Three copies of the specified pages


The correct matches are A=3, B=4, C=1, D=2.

Question 7

When checking your document for spelling errors, you can do the following:

  • A. Enter the corrected spelling yourself.

  • B. Enter the corrected spelling from an online dictionary service.

  • C. Ignore the spelling because it's correct, even if Word highlights it as suspect.

  • D. Add the word to the dictionary so Word won't stop at it again.


Answers A, C, and D are correct. Answer B is incorrect. You can use an online dictionary service to discern the correct spelling, but there's no built-in mechanism for automating that process from Word.

Question 8

Which of the following would you automate using a mail merge?

  • A. Printing file labels

  • B. Printing nametags for a public meeting

  • C. Personalizing a form letter for several recipients

  • D. Printing envelopes


Answers A, B, and C are correct. Answer D is incorrect; Word prints envelopes, but it isn't part of the mail merge process.

Question 9

What are the main components of a mail merge?

  • A. Main document, data source document, and the merged document

  • B. Paper, envelopes, and mailing labels

  • C. Mailing list and a postage meter


Answer A is correct. Answers B and C are incorrect. You might need all these things to actually print and mail your document, but they aren't part of Word's mail merge process.

Question 10

How can you tell whether a picture is selected?

  • A. It's highlighted.

  • B. It's maximized to consume the entire screen.
