Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Use keyboard keys to turn on the computer

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because keyboard keys alone cannot turn on a computer. In order to turn on a computer, you typically need to press the power button on the computer itself or on the keyboard if it has a dedicated power button. The keyboard keys are used for inputting commands or typing once the computer is turned on, but they do not have the capability to turn on the computer.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    ROM retains its contents even after the computer is turned off

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    ROM (Read-Only Memory) is a type of computer memory that is non-volatile, meaning it retains its contents even when the computer is turned off. Unlike RAM (Random Access Memory), which is volatile and loses its data when power is cut off, ROM is programmed with permanent instructions or data that cannot be changed or erased. This makes ROM an essential component in computers as it stores crucial information such as the computer's firmware, BIOS, and other system instructions that need to be retained even during power cycles. Therefore, the statement "ROM retains its contents even after the computer is turned off" is true.

    Use POWER BUTTON to turn off the Computer

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the power button is used to turn on the computer, not to turn it off. To turn off the computer, one typically needs to go through the proper shutdown process by selecting the "Shut Down" option from the operating system or by using the appropriate keyboard shortcut. Simply pressing the power button may result in an improper shutdown, which can cause data loss or damage to the system.

    Keyboard lights blinks when the computer STARTS UP

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When a computer starts up, the keyboard lights often blink as part of the initialization process. This blinking indicates that the computer is recognizing the keyboard and establishing a connection. It is a common occurrence during the startup sequence and serves as a visual confirmation that the keyboard is functioning properly. Therefore, the statement "keyboard lights blink when the computer starts up" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    RAM retains its contents even after the computer is turned off

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    RAM (Random Access Memory) is a volatile memory type, which means it requires a constant power supply to retain its contents. Once the computer is turned off, the power supply to RAM is cut off, and therefore, it loses all the stored data. Hence, the statement that RAM retains its contents even after the computer is turned off is false.
