    Internal modems are more vulnerable to resource conflict than external modems. T/F?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Internal modems are more vulnerable to resource conflict than external modems because internal modems are installed directly onto the motherboard of a computer, sharing system resources such as IRQ (Interrupt Request) lines and DMA (Direct Memory Access) channels with other internal components. This can lead to conflicts and interruptions in data transmission. On the other hand, external modems are connected to the computer through a separate port, such as USB or Ethernet, and do not rely on system resources, making them less prone to resource conflicts.
