Correct Answer - Option 3 : PDF

The correct answer is PDF.

  • Portable Document Format (PDF), standardized as ISO 32000, is a file format developed by Adobe in 1993 to present documents, including text formatting and images, in a manner independent of application software, hardware, and operating systems.
  • Based on the PostScript language, each PDF file encapsulates a complete description of a fixed-layout flat document, including the text, fonts, vector graphics, raster images, and other information needed to display it. 

  • DOC is the official document file used in Microsoft Word.
  • A DOC file contains text, images, and graphs.
  • It can be opened by many different programs and users can change printing options once it's opened.
  • A TXT file is a standard text document that contains plain text.
