Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

     Which of the following is NOT a component of the computer system?  

    • A.

      Microsoft Word

    • B.

      Software

    • C.

      Data

    • D.

      Hardware

    Correct Answer
    A. Microsoft Word
    Explanation
    Microsoft Word is not a component of the computer system because it is a software application that is installed on the computer system. Components of the computer system typically refer to the physical hardware such as the CPU, memory, storage devices, and input/output devices. Software, data, and hardware are all essential components of the computer system, but Microsoft Word is a specific software program that is used for word processing and is not considered a core component of the overall computer system.

    Which of the following is NOT an input device?

    • A.

      Mouse

    • B.

      Monitor

    • C.

      Keyboard

    • D.

      Scanner

    Correct Answer
    B. Monitor
    Explanation
    A monitor is not an input device because it is used to display output from the computer, rather than to input data or commands. Input devices, on the other hand, are used to enter data or commands into the computer system. Examples of input devices include a mouse, keyboard, and scanner, all of which are used to input data or commands into the computer.

  • 3. 

    The Central Processing Unit is made of the following units:

    • A.

      Hardware and Software

    • B.

      Control Unit and Arithmetic and Logic Unit

    • C.

      Control Panel and Toolbar

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Control Unit and Arithmetic and Logic Unit
    Explanation
    The Central Processing Unit (CPU) is the main component of a computer system that performs all the processing and calculations. It consists of two main units, namely the Control Unit and the Arithmetic and Logic Unit (ALU).

    The Control Unit is responsible for coordinating and controlling the operations of the CPU. It fetches instructions from memory, decodes them, and executes them by sending signals to other components of the computer.

    The ALU, on the other hand, performs all the arithmetic and logical operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and comparisons. It carries out calculations and logical decisions based on the instructions provided by the control unit.

    Therefore, the correct answer is "Control Unit and Arithmetic and Logic Unit" as these two units are the essential components of the CPU.

     Data may be defined as:

    • A.

      Processed information

    • B.

      Softcopy

    • C.

      Output

    • D.

      Raw material

    Correct Answer
    D. Raw material
    Explanation
    Data can be defined as raw material because it refers to unprocessed and unorganized facts and figures. Raw data is collected and then processed to convert it into meaningful information. Just like raw material is used to create finished products, raw data is used to generate insights and make informed decisions. Therefore, raw material is an appropriate term to describe data in its initial form before any processing or analysis is done.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Input devices are used to:

    • A.

      Take raw data and turn it into information

    • B.

      Get data and instructions into the computer for processing

    • C.

      Get raw data out of the computer

    • D.

      Translate information processed by the computer into an understandable form.

    Correct Answer
    B. Get data and instructions into the computer for processing
    Explanation
    Input devices are used to get data and instructions into the computer for processing. These devices allow users to input data and commands into the computer system, which can then be processed and utilized by the computer. Examples of input devices include keyboards, mice, scanners, and microphones. These devices play a crucial role in enabling communication between the user and the computer, facilitating the transfer of information and instructions for further processing.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Input devices take raw data and turn it into information.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Input devices are responsible for capturing and converting data from external sources into a format that can be processed by a computer. However, they do not directly turn raw data into information. The conversion of raw data into meaningful information occurs through the processing and analysis of the data by the computer system. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Data is another word for information.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is incorrect because while data is a part of information, it is not the same thing. Data refers to raw facts and figures, while information is data that has been processed, organized, and given context to make it meaningful and useful. Therefore, data and information are related but not interchangeable terms.

    Barcodes are found on most items in the supermarket.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Barcodes are indeed found on most items in the supermarket. They are used for efficient and accurate product identification and pricing at the checkout counter. Barcodes contain information such as the product's manufacturer, item number, and price. By scanning the barcode, the cashier can quickly retrieve this information and process the transaction. Therefore, it is true that barcodes are commonly found on items in the supermarket.

    When you reboot a computer you restart it.      

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When you reboot a computer, you restart it by shutting it down and then turning it back on. This process allows the computer to refresh its system and start from a clean state, which can help resolve certain issues or improve performance. Rebooting is a common troubleshooting step and is often recommended when experiencing software glitches or system slowdowns. Therefore, the statement "When you reboot a computer you restart it" is true.
