Answer: A

An Internet Protocol address (IP address) is a numerical label assigned to each device (e.g., computer, printer) participating in a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication.  An IP address serves two principal functions: host or network interface identification and location addressing. Its role has been characterized as follows: "A name indicates what we seek. An address indicates where it is. A route indicates how to get there.”

the NeXTSTEP platform. It was later renamed Nexus to avoid confusion with the World Wide Web.

A web browser is a software application for  retrieving, presenting, and traversing information resources on the World Wide Web. An information resource is identified  by a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) and may be a web page, image, video, or other  piece of content.  Hyperlinks present in resources enable users easily to navigate their browsers to related resources. A web browser can also be defined as an application software or program designed to enable users to access, retrieve and view documents and other resources on the Internet.

As an electronic method of messaging, it is fast and convenient, and includes all the steps of the delivery of a message to a recipient - writing, sending, receiving and saving. A received message can be handled in a variety of ways - it can be stored in a text file, forwarded to other users or just deleted. 
The contents of an email message can be some lines of keyboard typed text or files stored on a computer, or both. The Email is the main method of business communication worldwide due to its flexibility and reliability. One of its best features is that a message can be sent to several users simultaneously. 

6. What does HTTP stands for?
1.  Hypertext Transfer Protocol
2.  Hypertext Transfer Plotter
3.  Head Tail Transfer Plot
4.  Head Tail Transfer Protocol
Answer: A

 What is HTTP?
HTTP, the Hypertext Transfer Protocol, is the application-level protocol that is used
to transfer data on the Web.  HTTP comprises the rules by which Web browsers and
servers exchange information.  Although most people think of HTTP only in the context
of the World-Wide Web, it can be, and is, used for other purposes, such as distributed
object management systems.
How Does HTTP Work?
HTTP Is a request-response protocol.  For example, a Web browser initiates a
request to a server, typically by opening a TCP/IP connection.  The request itself
1.  a request line, 
2 .a set of request headers, and
3.an entity.  
The server sends a response that comprises
1.  a status line, 
2. a set of response headers, and
3. an entity. 
The entity in the request or response can be thought of simply as the payload,
which may be binary data.  The other items are readable ASCII characters. When the
response has been completed, either the browser or the server may terminate the
TCP/IP connection, or the browser can send another request.
An Example
As an illustration of HTTP, here is an example exchange between a Web browser and
the Silicon Press server, www.silicon-press.com.  In response to a user request to go
to the URL
the browser sends the following HTTP request to www.silicon-press.com:
GET / HTTP/1.1
Connection: Keep-Alive
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/2.2-11; Linux)
Email: info@silicon-press.com
Tel: 908-273-8919    Fax: 908-273-6149
© Silicon PressAccept: text/*, image/jpeg, image/png, image/*, */*
Accept-Encoding: x-gzip, gzip, identity
Accept-Charset: Any, utf-8, *
Accept-Language: en, en_US
