Subjective Section "B"
1 Define mail merge in MS Word application. Write steps to prepare letter for mail merge.
= Mail merge is a feature in Microsoft Word that allows you to create personalized documents, such as letters, envelopes, or labels, by merging a template document with a data source, such as an Excel spreadsheet or a database. The result is a set of documents where each document contains unique information from the data source. Here are the steps to prepare a letter for mail merge:


   a. Start Word Document: Open Microsoft Word and create a new document or open an existing one that you want to use as the template for your letter.


   b. Select Mailings Tab: Go to the "Mailings" tab in the Word ribbon.


   c. Select Start Mail Merge: Click on the "Start Mail Merge" button and choose the type of document you want to create (e.g., Letters).


   d. Select Recipients: Click on the "Select Recipients" button to choose your data source. You can use an existing list or create a new one in Word.


   e. Insert Merge Fields: Place the cursor where you want to insert personalized information (e.g., recipient's name), and click on "Insert Merge Field" to select the fields from your data source.


   f. Preview Results: Click on "Preview Results" to see how each merged document will look.


   g. Complete the Merge: Click on "Finish & Merge" and choose the option that suits your needs (e.g., "Edit Individual Documents" to create a new document with merged data).


   h. Merge Output: Word will generate the merged documents with personalized information from your data source.

2 What is cell in spreadsheet? Explain about Relative Cell and Absolute Cell Reference in MS Excel.
 =  A cell in a spreadsheet, such as Microsoft Excel, is the basic unit of data storage. It is the intersection of a row and a column and can contain various types of data, including numbers, text, formulas, or functions.


   - Relative Cell Reference: When you use a relative cell reference in a formula (e.g., A1), the reference adjusts automatically when you copy the formula to another cell. For example, if you copy a formula from cell B1 to B2, the reference changes from A1 to A2 because it's relative to the position of the formula.


   - Absolute Cell Reference: An absolute cell reference is indicated by adding a "$" symbol before the column letter and/or row number (e.g., $A$1 or A$1 or $A1). When you use an absolute reference in a formula, the reference remains fixed even if you copy the formula to other cells. It won't change when you copy it.

3. What are the advantages of DBMS over traditional file system in data management Explain.

= Advantages of DBMS over Traditional File System:

   Database Management Systems (DBMS) offer several advantages over traditional file systems in data management:


   a. Data Integrity: DBMS ensures data integrity by enforcing data constraints and providing mechanisms for data validation.


   b. Data Security: DBMS offers user authentication and access control to protect data from unauthorized access.


   c. Data Consistency: DBMS maintains data consistency through transactions, ensuring that data remains accurate even in the presence of concurrent operations.


   d. Data Redundancy Reduction: DBMS minimizes data redundancy by storing data in a centralized repository, reducing the chances of inconsistent data.


   e. Data Retrieval Efficiency: DBMS uses indexing and optimized query processing to retrieve data efficiently, improving performance.

   - Slide Transition: Slide transition, on the other hand, controls how one slide transitions to the next slide in a presentation. It determines the visual effect between slides. To add slide transitions, go to the "Transitions" tab and select a transition effect.

   a. Click on the slide where you want to insert the picture.

6. Explore the relationship between application software, system software and the operating system. Define the Disk Operating System (DOS). Explain the types of DOS commands with their examples. 5+2+3=10
= Application Software: These are programs designed for specific tasks or functions, such as word processors, spreadsheets, and web browsers. They rely on the operating system and system software to function.


   - System Software: System software includes the operating system and utility programs that manage computer hardware and provide services to application software. Examples include device drivers, system utilities, and the OS itself.


   - Operating System (OS): The OS is the core software that manages computer hardware, provides a user interface, and controls the execution of application software. It acts as an intermediary between hardware and software.


   Disk Operating System (DOS): DOS is an older type of operating system that uses a command-line interface for user interaction. It was widely used on personal computers in the past.


   Types of DOS Commands:

   - Internal Commands: These are commands built into the DOS shell. Examples include DIR (list files), CD (change directory), and COPY (copy files).


   - External Commands: These are standalone executable files that extend the functionality of DOS. For example, FORMAT (to format disks) and CHKDSK (to check and repair disk drives).
