Are you trying to accomplish a business goal?  Or are you practicing with Salesforce?  If you are practicing, sign up for a free Developer Edition at developer.salesforce.com and  experiment with these and other features.  You will be able to see what is possible and what is not.

I fully understand the value of going to the Dev Org and trying things out to deepen one's understanding.
On this question however, the above may not help.

This question is listed on sfdcstudy.org site.  This site is powered by Salesforce.  
What can be modified on standard object fields?(Choose 3)
 Label
 Help text
 Default text
 Picklist values
 Field type
Incorrect

First and foremost, I don't know what Default Text is.  However, the site marks 'Default text' as one of the correct answers (out of the 3).

On my part, I have sent an email to the sfdcstudy.org site Admin and requested clarification.

However, any help, from any source, would be very helpful, and highly appreciated, by those preparing for the test.

Do I need to say anything?

Field Label, Data type are uneditable fields on standard fields.

Modified fields are Help Text and Picklist values.

To know this for sure, you need to use your Developer Edition org and try it out. That way, you'll see how the feature works.

Hi Jeff, the snapshot I posted is from the attempt made in my Developer Edition.

You can definitely change standard labels. I have done this. It is done on tabs and labels. The URL below. You cannot do it in the context of the snapshot provided, but the question does not specify where, only if. I have no idea what default text is. Is that placeholder text?

Perhaps the way this question is worded is quiet tricky. It says what can be modified on standard object but does not specify if the field is standard or custom. So if a field on a standard object such as Account is a custom field then I can change field type, label and help text :)

Its Label, Picklist values and Help Text.
Evidence:
1. Label (setup-> type "Rename Tabs & Lables" -> click on any standard object -> click Next -> change Field Label).
2. Picklist Values ( click on the name of any standard object field of type picklist)
3. help text (click on edit of any standard object field)

I cannot reverse changing the main object label of Account, which I renamed as "Donor". Now there is no way in Object Manager to edit the object details. I want to change it back to "Account". How can that be done? Using Lightning Edition. Working in the Production space.

To answer my own question, we learned that after changing a standard object's Label in Object Builder, thereafter it can only be changed again using Quick Find - Rename Labels

You can customize several aspects of standard fields, such as the values in picklists, the format for auto-number fields, tracking field history, lookup filters on relationship fields, and field-level help.
