Parts of a computer quiz


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    1,000 characters are equal to what? (2 correct answers)

    • A.

      1,000 bytes

    • B.

      1 kilobyte

    • C.

      1 gigabyte

    • D.

      1 megabyte

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. 1,000 bytes
    B. 1 kilobyte
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 1,000 bytes and 1 kilobyte. In computer science, a byte is a unit of digital information that consists of 8 bits. It is commonly used for measuring the size of files and storage capacity. A kilobyte, on the other hand, is equal to 1,000 bytes. It is often used to describe the size of small files or storage devices. Therefore, both 1,000 bytes and 1 kilobyte are valid representations of 1,000 characters in the context of digital information.

    What memory is Non-Volatile.(Hint: Programs related to operating system are stored here.)

    Correct Answer(s)
    ROM
    Read only Memory
    Read Only Memory
    read only memory
    Explanation
    ROM is a type of memory that is non-volatile, meaning it retains its data even when the power is turned off. It is commonly used to store programs related to the operating system, as mentioned in the hint. The different variations of the answer, such as "Read only Memory" and "read only memory," all refer to the same concept of ROM being a non-volatile memory.

    What is used for encoding alphabet?

    • A.

      Bits

    • B.

      Barts

    • C.

      Bytes

    • D.

      Bakes

    Correct Answer
    C. Bytes
    Explanation
    Bytes are used for encoding the alphabet. Bytes are a unit of digital information that consist of 8 bits. Each byte can represent a character or symbol, including alphabets, numbers, and special characters. By using bytes, computers can store and process textual data, including the alphabet, in a standardized and efficient manner.

  • 6. 

    1,000 kilobytes =

    • A.

      1 byte

    • B.

      1,000 gigabytes

    • C.

      1 megabytes

    • D.

      1,000 megabytes

    Correct Answer
    C. 1 megabytes
    Explanation
    The question asks for the equivalent of 1,000 kilobytes. Since there are 1,000 kilobytes in 1 megabyte, the correct answer is 1 megabyte.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What does RAM stand for?

    Correct Answer
    Random Access Memory
    random access memory
    Explanation
    RAM stands for Random Access Memory. It is a type of computer memory that allows data to be accessed in any random order, rather than sequentially. This means that data can be read from or written to any location in the memory, making it faster and more efficient compared to other types of memory. RAM is volatile, meaning that its contents are lost when the computer is powered off or restarted. It is a crucial component in determining the speed and performance of a computer system.

    How many bits to make a byte?

    • A.

      8 bits

    • B.

      14 bits

    • C.

      5 bits

    • D.

      7 bits

    • E.

      10 bits

    Correct Answer
    A. 8 bits
    Explanation
    A byte is a unit of digital information that consists of 8 bits. Each bit represents a binary value of either 0 or 1. Therefore, to make a byte, we need 8 bits.

    What are these examples of?-Printer-Mouse-Moniter-Keyboard-Scanner

    Correct Answer
    Hardware
    hard ware
    Hard ware
    Explanation
    These examples (printer, mouse, monitor, keyboard, scanner) are all types of hardware. Hardware refers to the physical components of a computer system that can be touched and manipulated, as opposed to software which refers to the programs and instructions that run on the hardware.

    Give me a characteristic of Hardware.

    Correct Answer
    Something you can touch and see.
    Something you can touch.
    Something you can see.
    Explanation
    Hardware refers to physical components of a computer system that can be touched and seen. It includes devices such as the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and CPU. These components are tangible and can be physically manipulated. Therefore, the characteristic of hardware being "something you can touch and see" accurately describes its nature.

    • E.

      0 and 1

    Correct Answer
    E. 0 and 1
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 0 and 1. Binary code is a system of representing information using only two digits, 0 and 1. It is the foundation of digital technology and is used in computers and other electronic devices to store and process data. In binary code, each digit represents a power of 2, allowing for efficient and reliable data storage and manipulation.

    The CPU is also known as the what of the computer.

    Correct Answer
    Brain
    brain
    Explanation
    The CPU is often referred to as the "brain" of the computer because it performs the majority of the processing tasks. It is responsible for executing instructions, performing calculations, and managing data flow within the computer system. Similar to how the brain controls and coordinates various functions in the human body, the CPU controls and coordinates the operations of the computer, making it a fitting analogy.

    What is the speed of the CPU?

    • A.

      Gerghertz

    • B.

      Megahertz

    • C.

      Bibahertz

    • D.

      Kilohertz

    Correct Answer
    B. Megahertz
    Explanation
    The speed of the CPU is measured in Megahertz. Megahertz is a unit of frequency that represents one million cycles per second. It is commonly used to measure the clock speed of a CPU, which determines how many instructions it can execute per second. A higher Megahertz value indicates a faster CPU speed, allowing for faster processing and better performance.
