    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Speakers and audio cards
    Explanation
    Speakers and audio cards are necessary to allow sound to come from the computer. Speakers are the output device that converts electrical signals into audible sound, while audio cards, also known as sound cards, are responsible for processing and transmitting audio signals to the speakers. Without both of these components, the computer would not be able to produce sound. Headphones and video cards are not directly involved in the production of sound, and an audio card alone would not be sufficient to produce sound without the presence of speakers. Therefore, the correct answer is speakers and audio cards.
