Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which Type of printer produces High-Quality images using the electophotographis process?

    • A.

      Dot Matrix

    • B.

      Inkjet

    • C.

      Laser Printer

    • D.

      Thermal Printer

    Correct Answer
    C. Laser Printer
    Explanation
    A laser printer produces high-quality images using the electrophotographic process. This process involves a laser beam that creates an electrostatic image on a photosensitive drum. The drum is then coated with toner, which is attracted to the electrostatic image and transferred onto the paper. The result is a sharp and precise image with high resolution and clarity. Dot matrix printers use a matrix of pins to create characters and images, which may not achieve the same level of quality. Inkjet printers use liquid ink sprayed onto the paper, while thermal printers use heat to transfer images, both of which may not produce as high-quality results as a laser printer.

    Serial connectors are typically 9 or 25 pin connectors

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Serial connectors are typically 9 or 25 pin connectors. This statement is true because serial connectors, also known as RS-232 connectors, are commonly found in two sizes: 9 pin and 25 pin. These connectors are used to transmit data serially, meaning one bit at a time, and are commonly used for connecting devices such as modems, printers, and serial mice to computers. The 9 pin connector is more commonly used in modern devices, while the 25 pin connector is more commonly found in older devices.

      Cylinders

    Correct Answer
    A. Sectors
    Explanation
