    Explanation
    FAT32 is supported by Windows 9x (except 95a), Me, 2000, and XP, as mentioned in the given information. It is a file system that allows for larger partition sizes and file sizes compared to FAT16. It is also compatible with a wide range of devices and operating systems.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Another FAT derivative that isn't really a file system , which is a software interface that acts as an intermediary between FAT and applications.

    • A.

      FAT

    • E.

      VFAT

    Correct Answer
    E. VFAT
    Explanation
    VFAT stands for Virtual File Allocation Table and is a derivative of the FAT file system. It is not a file system itself but rather a software interface that acts as a bridge between the FAT file system and applications. VFAT provides additional features and enhancements to the FAT file system, such as long file names support, which were not present in the original FAT file system. This allows applications to interact with the FAT file system using more advanced features and capabilities.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    This OS supports only FAT / FAT16

    • A.

      DOS

    • B.

      Windows 3.x

    • C.

      Windows 9x

    Correct Answer
    A. DOS
    Explanation
    DOS stands for Disk Operating System, which was one of the early operating systems used on personal computers. It was primarily designed to support the FAT (File Allocation Table) file system, specifically FAT16. This file system was commonly used during the time when DOS was popular, and it allowed for the organization and management of files on storage devices. Therefore, it is reasonable to conclude that DOS supports only FAT / FAT16 file systems.

      Windows NT

    • B.

      Windows ME

    • C.

      Windows 3.x

    • D.

      Windows XP

    Correct Answer
    C. Windows 3.x
    Explanation
    Windows 3.x is the correct answer because it is an operating system that is similar to DOS and only supports FAT/FAT16 file systems. Windows NT, Windows ME, and Windows XP are not correct answers because they support different file systems such as NTFS.

    Explanation
    Windows 9.x is the correct answer because it is the only operating system listed that supports both FAT16 and FAT32 file systems. FAT16 and FAT32 are file systems used to organize and manage data on storage devices, and Windows 9.x is capable of working with both of them. Windows NT, DOS, and Windows 3.x do not support FAT32, making them incorrect options.

    Explanation
    Windows 2000 is the correct answer because it is an operating system that supports both FAT16 and FAT32 file systems. FAT16 is an older file system used in Windows 3.x and DOS, while FAT32 is a newer file system used in Windows NT and Windows 2000. Therefore, Windows 2000 is the only option that supports both FAT16 and FAT32.

Windows XP was one of the first versions of Windows to support both file systems, providing compatibility with a wide range of storage devices and file sizes.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Both FAT16 and FAT32 allow long filenames in Windows 9x and Me. Is this accurate or not accurate?

    • A.

      Accurate

    • B.

      Not accurate

    Correct Answer
    A. Accurate
    Explanation
    This answer is accurate because both FAT16 and FAT32 file systems support long filenames in Windows 9x and Me. Long filenames refer to filenames that exceed the traditional 8.3 format (eight characters for the filename and three characters for the extension). With the introduction of FAT32, Windows 9x and Me were able to handle longer filenames, providing more flexibility for users when naming their files.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Only FAT32 allows long filenames in Windows 9x and Me.  Is this accurate or not accurate?

    • A.

      Accurate

    • B.

      Not accurate

    Correct Answer
    B. Not accurate
    Explanation
    This answer is not accurate. While it is true that FAT32 allows long filenames in Windows 9x and Me, it is not the only file system that supports long filenames in these operating systems. The NTFS file system also supports long filenames in Windows 9x and Me. Therefore, the statement that only FAT32 allows long filenames in these operating systems is incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    FAT16 is supported by DOS, Windows 3.x, Windows 9x, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows XP.  Is this accurate or not accurate?

    • A.

      Not accurate

    • B.

      Accurate

    Correct Answer

    This statement is accurate. FAT16 (File Allocation Table 16-bit) is a file system supported by various operating systems including DOS, Windows 3.x, Windows 9x, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows XP.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    FAT 32 isn't supported by DOS, Windows 3.x, or Windows NT.  Is this accurate or not accurate?

    • A.

      Accurate

    • B.

      Not accurate

    Correct Answer
    A. Accurate
    Explanation
    This statement is accurate. FAT32 is not supported by DOS, Windows 3.x, or Windows NT. These operating systems primarily use the FAT16 file system, which has a maximum partition size of 2GB. FAT32 was introduced with Windows 95 OSR2 and offers larger partition sizes and improved file allocation. Therefore, it is not supported by the mentioned operating systems.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Windows 98 doesn't require a CD-ROM drive. Is this statement regarding the minimum and recommended system requirements for Windows 98 and Windows Me true or false?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because Windows 98 does require a CD-ROM drive. The minimum system requirements for Windows 98 include a CD-ROM drive, while the recommended system requirements also include a CD-ROM drive for optimal functionality. Therefore, the statement that Windows 98 doesn't require a CD-ROM drive is incorrect.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
