Agree with your answers, except Question 16 and and 22.
16 I've got as 4, and unlikely I will change it again.
22 I have as 1, have to check on again and give feedback on.

Hey BillyTheKid
Yip, I agree with your answer for Q16, I thought it was a bit tricky, but I think your answer is correct.

About Q22, it's definitely not SQL, I work a bit with databases, SQL has a specific box where you can write your query, it's not shown in the picture in the question. I'm sticking with my answer.

Let me know what you decide. Cheers

Hi Uneiza, thanks for your post! Do you know the text book changed this year? It's now MIS2. I'm not sure if that's good or bad? The text book is great but I'm concerned that the past papers might not be as useful now that the text book is not the same.

If there's one thing I've proven with my time at Unisa, it's this: lots of past papers = guaranteed distinction (in most cases)

6. 1 I agree
12. 4 I agree
16. 4 As I feel a spreadsheet relates only to tabular data so the graph would classify it as a presentation
20. 1 I agree, top down + branches = hierarchy
22. 2 I agree, as that is a screenshot from Microsoft Access + what Quantum said about no "SELECT" or "FROM" to be found from SQL
35. 1 I checked again, there is https in left hand corner, thus HTTP with SSL
49. 4 Definitely an intranet

Ok guys, holding thumbs

Just so you guys know.. spreadsheets are also very much used for graphs by plotting the tabular data. So i went with spreadsheet for Q16. Good luck!

Oh, did it change? But, i don't think you have to worry. This is because the topics are more or less the same. I wish you guys best of luck!
