    .which command in DOS is used to display the subdirectory structure and pause the screen after each screenful of info

    • A.

      tree

    • B.

      deltree/f

    • C.

      Dir | more

    • D.

      Tree | more

    Correct Answer
    D. Tree | more
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "tree | more". The "tree" command in DOS is used to display the subdirectory structure, and the "|" symbol is used to redirect the output of the "tree" command to the "more" command. The "more" command is used to pause the screen after each screenful of information, allowing the user to scroll through the output at their own pace. Therefore, using "tree | more" will display the subdirectory structure and pause the screen after each screenful of information.

    The "move" command in DOS allows you to move one file from one location to another location. This command is used to transfer a file from its current directory to a different directory or to rename a file while moving it to a different location. Unlike the "copy" command, which creates a duplicate of the file in the new location, the "move" command removes the file from its original location and places it in the specified destination. The "rename" command, on the other hand, is used solely for renaming files without changing their location.

    Which of the following operating systems does not implement multitasking truly?

    • A.

      Windows 95

    • B.

      Windows 98

      Windows XP

    • D.

      MS DOS

    Correct Answer
    D. MS DOS
    Explanation
    MS DOS does not implement multitasking truly. Unlike the other operating systems listed, MS DOS is a single-tasking operating system, meaning it can only run one program at a time. It does not have the capability to run multiple programs simultaneously or switch between them. This limitation makes it less efficient and less capable of handling multiple tasks compared to multitasking operating systems like Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows XP.

    • A.

      easier to develop than single task

    • B.

      execute each job faster

    • C.

      execute more jobs at the same time period

    • D.

      used only in large computers

    Correct Answer
    C. execute more jobs at the same time period
    Explanation
    Multi-tasking refers to the ability of a computer or system to perform multiple tasks simultaneously. This means that it can execute more than one job or process at the same time period. This is achieved by dividing the available resources and allocating them to different tasks, allowing them to run concurrently. This increases efficiency and productivity as it reduces idle time and maximizes resource utilization. Multi-tasking is not limited to large computers and can be found in various devices and operating systems.

    • A.

      Works best with most computers

    • B.

      Allows many programs to use memory simultaneously

    • C.

      allows each program in turn to use the memory

    • D.

      Does not work with overlaying

    Correct Answer
    C. allows each program in turn to use the memory
    Explanation
    Swapping allows each program in turn to use the memory. This means that when multiple programs are running simultaneously, swapping allows each program to take turns using the available memory. This is important because it ensures that each program has access to the resources it needs to run efficiently. Swapping involves moving data between the computer's memory and the hard disk, allowing the computer to free up memory for other programs when needed.
