    • A.

      Scanner

    • B.

      Printer

    • D.

      Microphone

    Correct Answer
    B. Printer
    Explanation
    A printer is a device that allows you to produce physical copies of your work onto paper. Unlike a scanner, which captures images or text from physical documents and converts them into digital files, a printer takes digital files and prints them onto paper. Speakers and microphone, on the other hand, are audio devices and do not have the capability to output work onto paper. Therefore, a printer is the correct answer.
