History Of Computer Questions and Answers (Q&A)

The correct answer to this question is Charles Babbage. Born in 1791, Charles Babbage had many fields of expertise, including being a mathematician, philosopher, inventor, and engineer. He created the analytical engine, which is the first design used in a general-purpose computer. It has done so by incorporating many elements including control flow, integrated memory, and logic unit.

Babbage began his work on the Analytical Engine in 1833. Over the years, the engine has continued to be worked on and improved. Charles Babbage son, Henry, worked on it in 1872 through 1875. In the 1900s account Percy Ludgate went on to design his own version.

Bill Gates is the name of the man that created Microsoft. He is the first person on the left. He’s been considered the richest person in the world for three years in a row (2014 to 2017). Other years, he’s been lower on the Forbes list of richest people. Regardless, it’s clear that he’s made a lot of difference with Microsoft.

Microsoft began in 1985 and is still going strong. It includes programs such as PowerPoint, Word, and Notebook. Many people use Microsoft programs to do things like write memos, create presentations, and more. The current price is $200 for the suite, and there are rumors that it is going to be a monthly fee soon, though this is simply a rumor.

Transistor is the invention that replaced vacuum tube in a computer and made computer much smaller and faster. A transistor is often time made of silicon or some other semiconductor material. It serves as a device that magnifies its electrical input; it also serves as the building block of a computer circuitry.

A transistor is like a switch that conducts electricity when energized. A transistor computer is also called a “second generation computer”. It was widely used in the 1950s and 1960s. But now, integrated circuit also called “third generation computer” is commonly used.

Initially, the computer used to be a huge room full of machines. It contained many complex machines that enabled the computer to perform its functions. However, as more and more things were invented, the ultimate size of the computer grew less. The vacuum tube was one part of the computer that allowed the computer to function.

As the computer advanced, transistors were invented. They were smaller and allowed the computers to become smaller than ever. Slowly, the size of the computers decreased as more and more pieces were invented. Today, we have cell phones. Fitting computers on to the hand.

The founder of Microsoft Windows is letter A. Bill Gates used to be known as the richest man in the world but recently, he was taken over by the CEO and founder of Amazon, Jeff Bezos. Bill Gates is still known to be a genius who provided what people needed at that time. According to reports, he may be earning millions every day.

He is still trying to find new breakthrough technologies that can help improve what he offers to the public. He has taught people that employees and companies need to know the reasons why customers are unhappy because this would be one way for them to know how they can improve the services and the products that they offer properly.

The answer to this is letter C. The Apple Computer was created by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. These two people became famous for inventing different things. Steve Jobs is famous all over the world especially after his death because people felt that all of the innovations that were presented are all his.

He was able to do a lot but he owed the things that he was able to show to the public through his team. He had a team of people who did their best to provide what he needed.

The answer to this is D. Douglas Engelbart. Can you imagine using your laptop or your computer without a mouse? Using your laptop without a mouse may be easier because it already has a built-in mouse but it can be harder when you are using your computer and you need to click on the different icons available.

Engelbart applied to get a patent for the mouse in the year 1967 but he received the patent after 3 years. Ever since then, people have recognized the need to use a mouse whenever they use their computer. It makes the cursor easier to control which also means that you can do more with your computer.

Konrad Zuse was the inventor of the modern computer. He was a German civil engineer, inventor and computer pioneer. He invented the Z3, which was developed in 1940. As stated by the computer history museum, Zuse’s computer was the first fully operational stored program electromechanical computer ever created.

It later became the first commercial computer. He built this computer in his parent's living room between 1936 and 1938. It is believed to be the first electro-mechanical binary programmable computer and the first functional modern computer. Turing complete Z3 was operational in 1941.

Correct answer - option D (integrated circuit) was the invention that helped make computers smaller and faster.
Integrated circuit are also known as chip or microchip. It is made from semiconductive material, the most commonly material used is silicon. Integrated circuit carry millions of tiny transistors, resistors and capacitors.

This has made it easy for computers to be made smaller and faster. It is used for many functions. It can serve as a computer memory, microprocessor, oscillator, amplifier, timer and several other functions. Integrated circuit is classified into analog, digital and mixed signal (which has analog and digital signaling on the same chip).
