    What dose ESD stand for

    • A.

      Electricical System Depth

    • B.

      Electrostatical Discarding

    • C.

      Electrostatic discharge

    • D.

      Elephants Sing Daily

    Correct Answer
    C. Electrostatic discharge
    Explanation
    ESD stands for Electrostatic Discharge. It refers to the sudden flow of electricity between two objects with different electric potentials. This discharge can occur when there is a buildup of static electricity on an object and it comes into contact with another object, causing a rapid transfer of electrons. ESD can be damaging to electronic components and devices, which is why precautions such as grounding and using anti-static materials are necessary in industries like electronics manufacturing and handling sensitive equipment.

      Format

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Disk Clean up
    E. Format
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Disk Clean up" and "Format" because these are two types of disk management tools commonly used in computer systems. Disk Clean up is a tool that helps to free up disk space by removing unnecessary files and temporary data. Format, on the other hand, is a tool used to prepare a disk for use by erasing all existing data and setting up a new file system. Both tools are essential for managing and optimizing disk storage in a computer system.

    The operating system creates a ......... ......... on the HDD to alow data to be stored (two words)

    Correct Answer
    File structure
    Explanation
    The operating system creates a file structure on the HDD to allow data to be stored. This file structure organizes and manages the files and directories on the hard drive, enabling the operating system to locate and access the stored data efficiently. It defines the rules and formats for naming files, organizing them into directories, and managing their storage allocation. The file structure is crucial for the smooth functioning of the operating system and ensuring that data can be stored and retrieved effectively.

    What is Packet switching

    • A.

      Used to send a text Message

    • B.

      Sending videos

    • C.

      Used to access the internet

    • D.

      Creates bread

    Correct Answer
    C. Used to access the internet
    Explanation
    Packet switching is a method used in computer networks to transmit data in the form of small packets. These packets are individually routed through the network based on the most efficient path available. This allows for efficient and reliable transmission of data, making it suitable for accessing the internet. The other options mentioned, such as sending text messages or videos, can also be done using packet switching, but the primary purpose of packet switching is to provide access to the internet. The option "creates bread" is unrelated and does not make sense in the context of packet switching.

  • 10. 

    Is 2.5G the same as GPRS (General Packet Radio Service)

    • A.

      No

    • B.

      Yes

    Correct Answer
    B. Yes
    Explanation
    Yes, 2.5G is the same as GPRS (General Packet Radio Service). GPRS is a technology used in mobile telecommunications to transmit data packets over cellular networks. It is considered a part of the 2.5G network, which is an intermediate generation between 2G and 3G. 2.5G networks offer higher data transfer rates compared to 2G networks, and GPRS is the technology that enables this data transfer. Therefore, both terms refer to the same concept of using GPRS technology in mobile networks.

    What are the Disadvantages of a peer to peer network

    • A.

      No centralized network

    • B.

      No centralized security

    • C.

      Network is more complex with more numbers

    • D.

      No centralized data storage

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    A peer-to-peer network has several disadvantages. Firstly, there is no centralized network, meaning that there is no central authority to manage and control the network. This can lead to difficulties in coordinating and managing the network effectively. Secondly, there is no centralized security, making the network more vulnerable to security breaches and unauthorized access. Additionally, as the network grows in size, it becomes more complex and difficult to manage due to the increased number of peers. Lastly, there is no centralized data storage, which can make it challenging to locate and access data efficiently. Therefore, all of the mentioned options are valid disadvantages of a peer-to-peer network.

    What are the classes of IP's

    • A.

      1, 2, 3, 4, 5

    • B.

      A, B, C, D, E

    • C.

      Upper, Middle, Lower

    Correct Answer
    B. A, B, C, D, E
    Explanation
    The classes of IP addresses are denoted by letters A, B, C, D, and E. This classification system is used to categorize IP addresses based on their range and the number of bits allocated for the network and host portions of the address. Class A addresses have a large network portion and a small host portion, while class E addresses are reserved for experimental purposes. Class B and C addresses are commonly used for network addressing, with class B addresses having a larger network portion than class C addresses. Class D addresses are used for multicasting purposes.

    • E.

      Network Interface

    Correct Answer
    B. Network
    Explanation
    The 3rd layer in the OSI model is the Network layer. This layer is responsible for the logical addressing and routing of data packets across different networks. It ensures that data is delivered from the source to the destination by selecting the best path and managing network congestion. The Network layer also provides services such as fragmentation and reassembly of packets, error handling, and flow control.

  • 16. 

    In the ... ........, each computer connects to a common cable. the cable connects one computer to the next.

    Correct Answer
    Bus topology
    Explanation
    In a bus topology, each computer in a network is connected to a common cable. This cable serves as a communication medium, connecting one computer to the next. This type of topology is simple and easy to implement, making it suitable for small networks. However, it can be prone to congestion and performance issues if multiple devices try to transmit data simultaneously.

      Service Legal Agreements

    • D.

      Service Level Agreements

    Correct Answer
    D. Service Level Agreements
    Explanation
    SLA stands for Service Level Agreements. Service Level Agreements are contractual agreements between a service provider and its customers, specifying the level of service that will be provided. These agreements outline the performance metrics, responsibilities, and expectations of both parties. They ensure that the service provider meets the agreed-upon standards and addresses any issues or disputes that may arise. Service Level Agreements are commonly used in various industries, such as IT, telecommunications, and outsourcing, to ensure the quality and reliability of services provided.

    • E.

      Other the customer some cheese

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Put the customer on hold
    C. Threaten them
    E. Other the customer some cheese
    Explanation
    To effectively handle an angry customer, it is important not to put them on hold as this can further escalate their frustration. Threatening the customer is also inappropriate as it can worsen the situation and damage the relationship. Offering the customer some cheese is not a relevant action to address their concerns. However, sympathizing with the customer and allowing them to explain the problem without interruption can help to de-escalate the situation and show empathy towards their concerns.
