In which of the following formats does a REST API produce output? (Choose two.)
A REST API does not produce output in Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) format. Although HTML is similar to XML, which uses tags like HTML does, XLM 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.
A REST API does not produce output in HTTP format. 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.
A REST API does not produce output in comma separated values (CSV) format. 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.
