Which of the following formats are not used by a REST API to produce output? (Choose three.)
HTTP is the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) networking model Application layer protocol that is used to transfer information from a web server to a web browser. A REST API uses HTTP to transmit requests for information to a web server, which is not the same as producing the formatted output that is returned from the server.
Although HTML is similar to XML, which uses tags like HTML does, XML requires a strict syntax and is typically used to structure data, not format and render data in a web browser. HTML, on the other hand, is designed to inform a web browser about how given information should be displayed.
The CSV format is a common tabular format that is supported by spreadsheet applications and other business reporting applications. CSV files are plain-text files that segregate the fields of a table by using a combination of quotation marks, symbolic delimiters such as a comma or a semicolon, and line breaks.
