  • 5. 

    Select the correct answers:The CPU 'controls' what the computer does and is responsible for:

    • A.

      Performing calculations through the arithmetic and logic unit (ALU).

    • B.

      Store computer data.

    • C.

      Data processing

    • D.

      Store instructions that tell the computer how to boot (startup)

    • E.

      Handles the movement of data to and from system memory.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Performing calculations through the arithmetic and logic unit (ALU).
    C. Data processing
    E. Handles the movement of data to and from system memory.
    Explanation
    The CPU is responsible for performing calculations through the arithmetic and logic unit (ALU) as it is the component that carries out mathematical operations and logical comparisons. It is also responsible for data processing, which involves manipulating and transforming data according to instructions. Additionally, the CPU handles the movement of data to and from system memory, ensuring that data is transferred between the CPU and memory for processing and storage.

  • 6. 

    [RAM stores data and programs currently in use]

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    RAM, which stands for Random Access Memory, is a type of computer memory that stores data and programs that are currently in use by the computer. It is a volatile memory, meaning that its contents are lost when the computer is turned off. RAM allows for quick and easy access to data, making it essential for the smooth functioning of a computer system. Therefore, the statement "RAM stores data and programs currently in use" is true.

  • 7. 

    [RAM cannot be written to.]

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "RAM cannot be written to" is false. RAM (Random Access Memory) is a type of computer memory that allows read and write operations. It is used to store data that can be accessed quickly by the computer's processor. Therefore, RAM can be written to, allowing data to be stored and retrieved as needed.

  • 8. 

    [ROM’s content are lost when the computer is turned off.]

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The content of ROM (Read-Only Memory) is not lost when the computer is turned off. ROM is a type of non-volatile memory that retains its data even when the power is turned off. This is in contrast to RAM (Random Access Memory) which is volatile and loses its data when the power is turned off. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Is [your statement here] true or false?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given answer is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    [RAM stores instructions that tell the computer how to start up.]

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    RAM (Random Access Memory) is a type of computer memory that is used to store data that is currently being used by the computer. It does not store instructions for starting up the computer. The instructions for starting up the computer are typically stored in the computer's firmware or BIOS (Basic Input/Output System). Therefore, the given statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Which hardware component is considered the brain of the computer?

    • A.

      BIOS

    • B.

      Motherboard

    • C.

      RAM

    • D.

      ROM

    • E.

      CPU

    Correct Answer
    E. CPU
    Explanation
    CPU because it is responsible for:
    performing calculations through the arithmetic and logic unit (ALU)
    data processing.
    It also handles the movement of data to and from system memory.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    [The more ROM you have installed in your computer - the faster it can perform.]

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The more RAM not ROM.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    [The more ROM you install to your computer the more you can open and use more programs at the same time without slowing the computer down.]

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The more RAM not ROM

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Select only one answer------------------------is used to temporarily store information

    • A.

      RAM

    • B.

      ROM

    Correct Answer
    A. RAM
    Explanation
    RAM stands for Random Access Memory and is used to temporarily store information in a computer system. It is a type of computer memory that allows data to be read from and written to by the processor. Unlike ROM (Read-Only Memory), RAM is volatile, meaning that its contents are lost when the power is turned off or the system is restarted. RAM is essential for the smooth functioning of a computer as it provides fast access to data that is actively being used by the processor.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Select only one answer:------------ is Volatile Memory.

    • A.

      RAM

    • B.

      ROM

    Correct Answer
    A. RAM
    Explanation
    RAM stands for Random Access Memory, which is a type of volatile memory. Volatile memory refers to temporary storage that loses its data when the power is turned off or lost. RAM is used to store data that is actively being used by the computer's operating system, applications, and processes. It allows for fast and random access to data, making it ideal for tasks that require frequent read and write operations. In contrast, ROM (Read-Only Memory) is non-volatile memory that stores permanent data and cannot be easily modified or erased.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    [RAM and ROM are sometimes referred to as 'Primary Storage'.]

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    RAM (Random Access Memory) and ROM (Read-Only Memory) are both types of primary storage in a computer system. Primary storage refers to the memory that is directly accessible by the CPU (Central Processing Unit). RAM is a volatile memory that stores data and instructions that are actively being used by the CPU. It is temporary and gets erased when the computer is turned off. ROM, on the other hand, is non-volatile memory that stores permanent instructions and data that are essential for the computer's operation, such as the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System). Therefore, it is correct to say that RAM and ROM are sometimes referred to as "Primary Storage".
