        Only you can hear when using these:

    • A.

      Earplugs

    • B.

      Speakers

    • C.

      Monitors

    • D.

      Headphones

    Correct Answer
    D. Headphones
    Explanation
    Headphones are designed to be worn over the ears, creating a seal that blocks out external noise and allows only the wearer to hear the audio. Unlike earplugs, which are inserted into the ear canal, headphones provide a more immersive listening experience by delivering sound directly to the ears. On the other hand, speakers and monitors project sound into the surrounding environment, making it audible to others as well. Therefore, headphones are the only option that ensures privacy and allows only the user to hear the audio.

    A monitor is a display device that allows you to see what you are working on. It is commonly used with computers and other electronic devices to provide a visual representation of the content being accessed or created.

Headphones and fax machines do not provide visual displays, making them incorrect options.
