What is TOC?

The Table of Contents (TOC) consists of headings and sub-headings of a book or document. It is a necessary index, generally available in long documents, books, drafts, etc. It includes titles or first-level headings, such as chapter names, and sometimes it even includes second-level headings, and occasionally third-level headings. A Table of Contents acts as a map for the users. It allows them to find information in the document using the chapter names and page numbers.

List any two characteristics of a good TOC.

Two characteristics of a good TOC are:
• It should be easy to read and simple to use.
• It should be organised and formatted properly.

What is the hierarchy of headings?

You can define the hierarchy of headings in a document if it contains multi-level headings. For example, you can categorise the headings in different heading levels, such as 1, 1.1, 1.2, 2, 2.1, and so on.
