Explain briefly two commonly used applications of the ‘Internet’.
Applications of the Internet:
1. E-mail: It allows the exchange of text or graphic material. One can write a letter and send it to the other person (recipient) through an internet service provider (ISP). The ISP works like the dispatching and receiving post office.
2. File transfer: A program known as the file transfer program (FTP) allows the transfer of files or software from one computer to the other computer connected to the Internet.
