B is the correct answer. The key difference between an electronic and print resume is that the first one is designed to interact with computer software. Thus, it does not use any special formatting, resume headings, or other design elements that will make it hard to scan for a computer.

Correct: option B.

Unlike print resume forms, an electronic resume isn’t meant for a human. It will be scanned by a machine, which eliminates the need for special formatting.

Also, unlike resumes online, it should be saved as an RTF as this format is best supported by the software. So, the correct answer is B.

Correct: option B.

No special formatting is needed, and it should be saved as an RTF (B). Electronic or scanned resumes should come in the form of a plain text resume to ensure that a computer will detect and read them with ease. And the RTF format is inherent in most word processing packages.
