      Because they print text and graphics simultaneously one complete page at a time

    Correct Answer
    D. Because they print text and graphics simultaneously one complete page at a time
    Explanation
    Laser printers are classified as page printers because they have the capability to print text and graphics simultaneously, completing one whole page at a time. This means that they can print an entire page in one pass, making them efficient for printing large documents. Unlike other types of printers, laser printers do not print one line or character at a time, but rather the entire page at once. This allows for faster printing speeds and better quality output.
