      MHz

    • C.

      GHu

    • D.

      MZh

    B. MHz
    Explanation
    The speed measurement of a processor is typically measured in MHz (Megahertz). This unit represents one million cycles per second, indicating the number of instructions the processor can execute in a given time frame. GHz (Gigahertz) is also a valid speed measurement for processors, representing one billion cycles per second. However, in this case, MHz is the correct answer as it is the only option provided that accurately represents the speed measurement of a processor.

    C. So that you do not blow the CPU
    Explanation
    The purpose of the FAN in a CPU is to prevent the CPU from overheating. When the CPU is in use, it generates heat, and if this heat is not dissipated properly, it can damage the CPU. The FAN helps to circulate air around the CPU, removing the excess heat and maintaining a safe operating temperature. By preventing the CPU from overheating, the FAN ensures that the CPU does not blow or get damaged.

      No, because they don't match

    • C.

      Whatever

    Correct Answer
    B. No, because they don't match
    Explanation
    The answer is "No, because they don't match" because LGA775 and LGA771 are different socket types and are not compatible with each other. The number in the socket type indicates the number of pins on the socket, and since LGA775 has a different pin configuration than LGA771, a motherboard with LGA775 socket cannot be used for a CPU with LGA771 socket.

Other options given in the question, such as 858MB and 98MB, are not correct as they do not align with the standard capacity of a floppy disk. The option "Whatever size you want" is also incorrect as it implies that the capacity of a floppy disk can be customized, which is not the case.
