Not everyone knows the difference between analog and digital signals but they are quite substantial – for example digital signals are finite while analog signals are constantly fluctuating. Let’s see how much else you know about them in this “Knowing the Facts – Analog vs. Digital” quiz.

• 1.

### Digital technology, breaks the signal into binary format, where audio or video data is represented by a series of "1"s and "0"s.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Digital technology breaks down audio or video data into a binary format, where each piece of data is represented by a series of "1"s and "0"s. This binary representation allows for efficient storage, transmission, and processing of the data. Therefore, the statement is true.

### This is how analog signal looks like.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
An analog signal is a continuous signal that represents information in a continuously variable manner. It can take on any value within a range. This is different from a digital signal, which only represents information in discrete values. Therefore, the statement "This is how analog signal looks like" is true, as the image or representation provided is consistent with the characteristics of an analog signal.

### The simplest definition of a computer: A device that processes input and generates output.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
A computer is commonly defined as a device that takes in input, such as data or instructions, and performs operations on it to produce output. This definition highlights the fundamental purpose of a computer, which is to process information. Therefore, the statement "A device that processes input and generates output" accurately captures the essence of what a computer is, making the answer true.

### Audio tapes and Video Tape Recorder (VCR) are good examples of analog technology.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Audio tapes and Video Tape Recorders (VCR) are examples of analog technology because they use continuous signals to record and play back audio and video. Analog technology works by representing information as a continuous waveform, which can vary in amplitude and frequency. In the case of audio tapes and VCRs, the sound and video signals are recorded onto magnetic tape in an analog format, allowing for the reproduction of the original signal with high fidelity. This is in contrast to digital technology, which represents information as discrete binary digits (bits).

### Laptops, touch screen, Ipod, Compact Discs and DVD's are good examples of digital technology.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Laptops, touch screens, iPods, compact discs, and DVDs are all examples of digital technology because they rely on digital data and processes. Laptops are digital devices that use digital technology to process and display information. Touch screens are digital interfaces that allow users to interact with digital content. iPods are digital music players that store and play digital audio files. Compact discs and DVDs are digital storage media that store data in a digital format. Therefore, all these examples demonstrate the use of digital technology.

### In the analog format, the translation of data may vary in amplitude.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
In analog format, data is represented by continuously varying signals. This means that the translation of data can indeed vary in amplitude. Unlike digital format where data is represented by discrete values, analog format allows for a range of amplitudes to represent the data. Therefore, the statement is true.

### Digital offers better clarity, but analog gives you richer quality.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Digital technology is known for providing better clarity compared to analog technology. This is because digital signals are represented by discrete values, resulting in a more precise and accurate representation of the original signal. On the other hand, analog technology captures the continuous variations of a signal, which can result in a richer and more natural quality. Therefore, the statement that digital offers better clarity while analog provides richer quality is true.

### In analog technology, a wave is recorded or used in its original form.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
In analog technology, a wave is recorded or used in its original form. This means that the analog signal is captured and stored without any digital conversion or manipulation. It retains all the continuous and infinite values of the original waveform, allowing for a more accurate representation of the signal. This is in contrast to digital technology, where the wave is converted into discrete values (bits) for storage and processing. Therefore, the statement "True" is correct as it accurately describes the characteristic of analog technology.

• 9.

### In digital technology, the analog wave is sampled at some interval, and then turned into numbers that are stored in the digital device.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
In digital technology, the process of converting analog waveforms into digital signals involves sampling the wave at regular intervals and then representing each sample as a numerical value. These numerical values are then stored in a digital device, allowing for easy manipulation and processing of the waveform. Therefore, the statement "In digital technology, the analog wave is sampled at some interval, and then turned into numbers that are stored in the digital device" is true.

• 10.

### A big advantages of digital technology is the recording does degrade over time.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement is incorrect. A big advantage of digital technology is that the recording does not degrade over time. Unlike analog recordings, which can deteriorate and lose quality over time due to physical wear and tear, digital recordings remain unchanged as long as they are stored and handled properly. This makes digital technology more reliable and durable for long-term preservation of audio or visual content.
