d)    Changes: - We use Changes option to protect the sheet and workbook, and we can allow user to edit the specific range; also, we can share the workbook as well. When we want to prevent the unwanted changes in the sheet by others, we can protect the sheet by using the “Protect Sheet” option. And, if we don’t want other users to do any structural changes in the workbook such as moving, deleting or adding sheets, we can do it by using the “Protect workbook” option. Using “Share workbook” option, we can grant access to multiple users to work on a file at the same time. We use “Protect and share workbook” option to share the workbook and protect change tracking with a password. We use “Allow users to edit ranges” to set up password protection on few ranges and we can select the users who can edit those ranges. We use “Track changes” to keep the track of changes made in the file.
