Cross Marks: Cross marks, also known as X marks or cross symbols (✗), are graphical symbols used to indicate a negative or incorrect status. Cross marks are commonly used to mark items as wrong, to indicate a negative response, or to show that an option has not been selected.
Check Boxes: Check boxes are interactive graphical elements that allow users to select or deselect options. They are usually represented by small empty squares that can be filled with a check mark or tick mark when selected.
