If a executable file (eg. word.exe) is being requested from a server by a client, which side will it be executed or runned? Will the file be transfered to the client and execute there? Or is it execute at the server?

In a Windows world, it will normally run on the client using the client CPU/memory/disk space, etc.
Unless, the server is a Terminal Server or Citrix server. In that case, the application runs on the server and only the screen runs on the client.
Unix X-Window system is similar to the Terminal Server whereby the application can actually run on the server.
