Two devices (mouse & keyboard) are installed to answer any questions on the screen. The keyboard is a flat device with lots of buttons, and the mouse is a rat-looking thing.

The keyboard consists of different keys. we have the numeric, alphabetic, etc. I will stop there because that’s all we need. you can check more here


Before starting your exam first make sure all the keys are working by pressing all. After doing that click delete or backspace on the keyboard.

Not all the keys on the keyboard are needed as earlier said. We actually need 8 alphabetical keys.

  1. What if you want to go to another subject. Like do government first and skip maths for later and that’s not the order? What letter do you use on the keyboard for that?
