Question 1

You have the following Map.

You need the map to appear as shown in the following visualization.

What should you do?



Answer : D

To create a map visualization that shows the concentration of data points in different locations, you need to change the mark type to Density. This will create a heatmap that uses color and size to indicate the density of the data points. You can also adjust the intensity and transparency of the density marks to suit your needs.Reference:The information is based on the following sources:

Question 2

You have a sales dataset that contains the following fields.

You need to analyze the average revenue per product in different regions over time.

Which two fields should be measures? Choose two.



Answer : D, E

To analyze the average revenue per product in different regions over time, you need to use two fields that contain numeric, quantitative values that you can measure and aggregate. Quantity and Revenue are both measures that fit this criterion. You can multiply Quantity and Revenue to get the total sales for each product, and then divide by the number of products to get the average revenue. You can also use these measures to create charts and tables that show the trends and comparisons over time and across regions.Reference:

Question 3

You have the following dataset.

Which formula calculates the percent difference in sales relative to the same quarter the previous year as shown in the Calculation field?



Answer : B

The formula in option B calculates the percent difference in sales relative to the same quarter the previous year. It subtracts the sales of the same quarter from the previous year from the current year's sales, and then divides this by the previous year's sales. This gives a percentage change, which aligns with what is shown in the Calculation field of your dataset. The LOOKUP function returns the value of a specified offset from the current row in the partition. In this case, the offset is -4, which means the value of the same measure four rows above the current row. This corresponds to the same quarter of the previous year, assuming the data is sorted by quarter.Reference:

Question 4

You are creating an annual report in Microsoft Word.

In Tableau Desktop, you build a chart in a worksheet.

You want to create an image of the chart that you can add to the annual report.

What are two ways to create the image? Choose two.



Answer : A, B

To create an image of the chart that you can add to the annual report, you can use either the Export option or the Copy option from the Worksheet menu. The Export option will allow you to save the image as a file in a specified location, name, and format. The Copy option will allow you to copy the image to the clipboard and paste it into another application, such as Microsoft Word. Both options will let you choose which elements to include in the image, such as title, caption, legend, etc.Reference:

Question 5

You want to create the following dashboard.

The dashboard will contain two sheets that will connect to the same data source. The top sheet will be configured to filter the bottom sheet.

When you click a category on the top sheet, the sheets must resize as shown in the following exhibit.

How should you lay out the objects on the dashboard?



Answer : D

To create the dashboard as shown in the image, you need to use a vertical layout container that will adjust the height of the sheets according to the window size. You also need to set the Fit to Entire view option for both sheets so that they will resize proportionally when you click a category on the top sheet. This way, you can achieve the desired effect of having the bottom sheet expand to fill the space left by the top sheet when it filters out some categories.Reference:

Question 6

You have two tables named Employeelnfo and DepartmentInfo. Employeelnfo contains four fields named Full Name, Department ID, Start Date, and Salary.

DepartmentInfo contains four fields named Department Name, Size, Department ID, and VP.

You want to combine the tables to meet the following requirements:

. Each record in Employeelnfo must be retained in the combined table.

. The records must contain the Department Name, Size, and VP fields.

* Every record must have a full name.

Which type of join should you use?



Answer : B

To combine the tables and meet the requirements, you should use a left join. A left join will keep all the records from the left table (Employeelnfo) and match them with the records from the right table (DepartmentInfo) based on the common field (Department ID). If there is no matching record in the right table, the fields from the right table will be null. This way, you will retain all the records from Employeelnfo, and also include the Department Name, Size, and VP fields from DepartmentInfo. Every record will have a full name because it is a field from the left table. A left join will look like this:
