Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Describes computer or network system components, such as fans, hard disk drives, servers, operating systems, switches, and telecommunication links that are installed to back up primary resources in case they fail. 

    Explanation
    The term "redundant" describes computer or network system components that are installed to back up primary resources in case they fail. These components can include fans, hard disk drives, servers, operating systems, switches, and telecommunication links. The purpose of redundancy is to ensure that there is a backup or duplicate system in place to prevent any disruptions or failures in the primary resources.

  • 2. 

    A computer program that translates one program instructions at a time into machine language is called a/an

    • A.

      Interpreter

    • B.

      CPU

    • C.

      Compiler

    • D.

      Simulator

    Correct Answer
    A. Interpreter
    Explanation
    An interpreter is a computer program that translates one program instruction at a time into machine language. It reads the source code line by line and executes it immediately, without the need for a separate compilation process. This allows for faster development and debugging, as errors can be identified and corrected on the fly. In contrast, a compiler translates the entire program into machine language before execution, resulting in a standalone executable file. A CPU (Central Processing Unit) is the hardware component responsible for executing instructions, while a simulator is a program that mimics the behavior of a system or process.

  • 3. 

    A computer program that converts an entire program into machine language is called a/an

    • A.

      Interpreter

    • B.

      Simulator

    • C.

      Compiler

    • D.

      Commander

    Correct Answer
    C. Compiler
    Explanation
    A computer program that converts an entire program into machine language is called a compiler. Unlike an interpreter, which converts and executes the program line by line, a compiler translates the entire program at once and generates an executable file. This allows for faster execution of the program as the translation process is done beforehand. A simulator is a program that imitates the behavior of a system, while a commander is not a term related to program translation.

  • 4. 

    What is meant by a dedicated computer?

    • A.

      Which is used by one person only

    • B.

      Which is assigned one and only one task

    • C.

      Which uses one kind of software

    • D.

      Which is meant for application software

    Correct Answer
    B. Which is assigned one and only one task
    Explanation
    A dedicated computer refers to a computer that is assigned one and only one task. This means that the computer is designed and used specifically for a particular purpose or function. It is not shared among multiple users or used for multiple tasks simultaneously. This type of computer setup ensures optimal performance and efficiency for the assigned task by eliminating any distractions or conflicts that may arise from multitasking or sharing resources with other tasks or users.

    The standard connector that is used for UTP Ethernet connection is which of the following connectors?    

    • A.

      DB-9

    • B.

      RJ-45

    • C.

      BNC

      RJ-11

    • E.

      RG-45

    Correct Answer
    B. RJ-45
    Explanation
    The correct answer is RJ-45. RJ-45 connectors are commonly used for UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair) Ethernet connections. They have 8 pins and are similar in appearance to RJ-11 connectors, but larger. RJ-45 connectors are designed to securely connect Ethernet cables to devices such as computers, routers, and switches, allowing for high-speed data transmission over a network.

    Explanation
    When a computer with an Award BIOS is booting and it outputs a single long beep, the most likely cause for this response is a memory issue. This could indicate that there is a problem with the memory module or that it is not properly seated in the motherboard. The beep code is a common way for the BIOS to indicate hardware errors during the boot process, and a single long beep specifically points to a memory problem.

    A spreadsheet is an application program that allows users to change numbers and immediately see the result of that change. It is commonly used for organizing and analyzing data, performing calculations, and creating charts and graphs. With a spreadsheet, users can input numbers, formulas, and functions to manipulate data and instantly see the updated results. This makes it a useful tool for tasks such as budgeting, financial analysis, and data tracking. Therefore, a spreadsheet fits the given description and is the correct answer.

     A 32 bit microprocessor has the word length equal to

    • A.

      2 byte

    • B.

      32 byte

    • C.

      4 byte

    • D.

      8 byte

    Correct Answer
    C. 4 byte
    Explanation
    A 32-bit microprocessor has a word length equal to 4 bytes. This means that the microprocessor can process data in chunks of 4 bytes at a time. Each byte consists of 8 bits, so a 32-bit microprocessor can process 32 bits, or 4 bytes, of data simultaneously. This word length is important for determining the maximum amount of data that the microprocessor can handle and the size of the memory addresses it can access.

    Explanation
    Application software refers to programs that are designed to perform specific tasks or functions for the user. These programs are created to meet the needs of individuals or organizations and are typically used to accomplish specific tasks, such as word processing, spreadsheet calculations, or graphic design. Unlike system software, which includes operating systems and utility programs, application software is focused on providing functionality and solving specific problems for the user. Therefore, the correct answer is application software.

    Involves the utilization of an active directory through which domain name users and their passwords are administered and controlled from a single location. 

    Correct Answer
    Domain networking
    Explanation
    Domain networking involves the utilization of an active directory, which is a centralized system that manages domain name users and their passwords from a single location. This allows for easier administration and control of user access and security settings within a network. With domain networking, users can log in to any computer within the domain using their credentials, and administrators can easily manage user accounts, permissions, and group policies. Overall, domain networking provides a more efficient and secure way to manage and control user access within a network.
