Its also a 2D geometric symbolic representation of information according to some visualization Sometimes, the technique uses a 3D visualization which is then projected onto the 2D surface (isometric). The word graph is sometimes used as a synonym for diagram. Diagram has two meanings in common sense: 1. A collective term for any visual information device, like the term "illustration" often used as a representative term, to stand for the whole class of technical genres, including graphs and tables.

2.

The specific class of visual display that shows qualitative data with shapes which are sometimes connected by lines, arrows, or other visual links.

GRAMMAR: THE PRESENT PREGRESSIVE


Every question generates an answer. This answer can be a long answer (like an affirmative sentence) or a short answer. Short answers are formed by the affirmative or negative word (yes / no), the personal pronoun and the auxiliary verb for the present progressive (plus the negative word in the case of negations)

Short affirmative / negative answers


In affirmative answers, you cannot use contractions. Look at the following chart. Yes, I am Yes, he is he Yes, she is she Yes, it is it Yes, we are we Yes, you are Yes, they are they In negative answers, you can use contractions. Look at the following chart. No, I am not (Im not) No, he is not (hes not) he No, she is not she No, it is not it (its not) (Short affirmative answer)

(he isnt) (it isnt) (Short negative answer)

HOW TO FORMAT A SECONDARY HARD DRIVE


When you format a computer hard drive you will lose everything that is on the drive. Therefore, it is very important to back up anything you might want later. Additionally, if you are going to be formatting and installing XP you need to make sure you have the discs for any applications or third party hardware you use since you will need to re-install your programs and drivers after re-installing Windows. Take a moment to think of anything that you have on the computer that you wouldn't want to lose. Generally, you probably want everything in your My Documents folder, and you also want to save things like your favorites or bookmarks from your Web browser. Remember that each user on the computer has his or her own My Documents folder, Desktop items and Favorites. Save everything to a CD, DVD or a hard drive that you won't be formatting.

Step 1: Right-Click on the My Computer


icon either on your desktop or in the Start Menu and select Manage.

Step 2: A new window titled Computer


Management comes up. Select Storage

from the left hand side by clicking it once, then, select Disk Management (local) from the right side by double-clicking it.

Step 3: Now in the lower part of the main frame (right side) of the window you should
see a nice visual of all your hard drives. Each line is a different drive. Each box on a line (with a colored bar at the top and a size displayed in MB or GB) is a partition on the drive. Partitions are separations of space on a drive. Unless you are doing something specific that requires multiple partitions, you only want one partition per drive.

Step 4: First you must delete any existing partitions on the drive you are going to
format. Do this by right-clicking on the partition's box and selecting Delete Partition... Since you already know that you will be deleting everything on the drive, and have already backed everything up, you can safely say yes to any warning the computer presents you with.

Step 5: If there are multiple partitions make sure you have saved everything off them
since they might each have different drive letters. Then repeat the above step for each of them. If you only want to format one partition that is OK and you can continue to the next step without deleting the other partitions.

Step 6: The box for the drive to be formatted should now have a black bar at the top of
it and should say Unallocated under its size. Partition... The New Partition Wizard comes up. Right click on it and select New

Step 7: In the New Partition Wizard click next. On the next page make sure Primary
Partition is selected and click next. Now make the size equal to the maximum, and click next again. On the next page the computer will automatically choose the first available drive letter for the new drive. However, if you like you can choose another drive letter from the drop-down menu, and then click next.

Step 8: Finally the New Partition Wizard asks if you would like to format the new
partition and if so what format. Choose NTFS as it is faster and more secure. Leave

the Allocation unit size as Default. In the Volume label field enter whatever name you want the drive to have. Simple is better. Avoid using spaces. Finally, if the drive is brand new and has never been used before, check the Perform a quick format box. If the drive has been used before leave this box unchecked. Leave the Enable file and folder compression box unchecked and click next. next page click finish. Then, on the

Step 9: The wizard will now spend a little while formatting the drive. On old or large
drives this may take a while. Do not close the Computer Management window until it finishes. You will know it is done when the word under the size of the drive changes from Formatting to Healthy and the name and drive letter you chose for the new drive shows.
