Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The components that process data are located in the _______ 

    • A.

      Input devices

    • B.

      Output devices

    • C.

      System unit

    • D.

      Storage component.

    • E.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    C. System unit
    Explanation
    The system unit is where the components that process data are located. This includes the motherboard, central processing unit (CPU), memory, and other internal components. The input and output devices, such as keyboards, mice, monitors, and printers, are connected to the system unit but do not directly process data. The storage component, which includes hard drives and solid-state drives, stores data but does not process it. Therefore, the correct answer is system unit.

    A bit is the fundamental unit of information in computing and digital communications. It represents a binary digit, which can have two possible values: 0 or 1. Therefore, the term "bit" is short for "binary digit." This term is used to describe the smallest unit of data in a computer system, where information is stored and processed in binary form.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    All of the following are examples of input devices EXCEPT a

    • A.

      Scanner

    • B.

      Mouse

    • C.

      Keyboard

    • D.

      Printer

    • E.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    D. Printer
    Explanation
    The question asks for examples of input devices, which are devices used to input data into a computer. A scanner, mouse, and keyboard are all examples of input devices because they allow the user to input data or commands into the computer. However, a printer is an output device because it allows the computer to produce a physical copy or printout of data. Therefore, the correct answer is "Printer" because it is not an example of an input device.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which of the following is an example of an input device?

    • A.

      Scanner

      CD

    • D.

      Printer

    • E.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. Scanner
    Explanation
    A scanner is an example of an input device because it allows users to input physical documents or images into a computer system. It uses optical technology to convert the physical document or image into a digital format that can be stored, edited, or shared electronically. This makes it possible for users to input physical documents or images into a computer system for various purposes such as scanning documents for digital storage, scanning photos for editing or sharing, or scanning barcodes for inventory management.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The ___, also called the “brains” of the computer, is responsible for processing data

    • A.

    Correct Answer
    D. Central Processing Unit (CPU)
    Explanation
    The Central Processing Unit (CPU) is responsible for processing data in a computer. It is often referred to as the "brains" of the computer because it performs the majority of the calculations and operations necessary for the computer to function. The CPU interprets and executes instructions from the computer's memory, performs arithmetic and logical operations, and controls the flow of data between different parts of the computer. In short, the CPU is the core component that carries out the actual processing of data in a computer system.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The CPU and memory are located on the________

    • A.

      Expansion board

    • B.

      Port

    • C.

      Card

    • D.

      Output device

    • E.

      Motherboard

    Correct Answer
    E. Motherboard
    Explanation
    The CPU and memory are located on the motherboard. The motherboard is the main circuit board of a computer system and it houses various components, including the central processing unit (CPU) and memory modules. These components are essential for the functioning of a computer system as the CPU performs calculations and executes instructions, while the memory stores data and instructions for the CPU to access and process. Therefore, the motherboard is the correct answer as it is where the CPU and memory are located.

    Spooling  is acronym for      

    • A.

      Simultaneous peripheral operation online

    • B.

      Simultaneous Process operation online

    • C.

      System peripheral operation online

    • D.

      Simultaneous peripheral operating online

    • E.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. Simultaneous peripheral operation online
    Explanation
    Spooling stands for Simultaneous peripheral operation online. Spooling is a process in which data is temporarily stored in a spool, which is a designated area of memory or disk, before it is sent to an output device for processing. This allows for multiple peripheral devices, such as printers or disk drives, to be accessed simultaneously by the computer system. Spooling helps to improve efficiency and performance by allowing the computer to continue processing other tasks while the output devices are busy.

  • 18. 

    _______ is a logical extension of multiprocessing 

    • A.

      Multiprocessing

    • B.

      Multithreading

    • C.

      Multilevel

    • D.

      Multitasking

    • E.

      All of these

    Correct Answer
    D. Multitasking
    Explanation
    Multitasking is a logical extension of multiprocessing because it involves the concurrent execution of multiple tasks or processes on a single processor. While multiprocessing refers to the use of multiple processors to execute tasks simultaneously, multitasking allows a single processor to switch between tasks rapidly, giving the illusion of parallel execution. This is achieved through techniques such as time-sharing and context switching, where the processor allocates small time slices to each task, allowing them to make progress in a seemingly concurrent manner.

    Rate this question:

    _______ is called a network of autonomous computer.       

    • A.

      Soft Real time System

    • B.

      Distributed System

    • C.

      Hard real Time System

    • D.

      Time Shared System

    • E.

      Parallel System

    Correct Answer
    B. Distributed System
    Explanation
    A distributed system is a network of autonomous computers that work together to achieve a common goal. In a distributed system, each computer operates independently and has its own memory and processing power. These computers communicate and coordinate with each other through messages to complete tasks efficiently. This allows for better performance, fault tolerance, and scalability compared to a single centralized system. Therefore, a distributed system is the correct answer for the given question.

    • A.

      Main storage

    • B.

      Primary storage

    • C.

      Floppy disk

    • D.

      Disk drive

    • E.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    D. Disk drive
    Explanation
    When the computer system is in the switch on state, the OS software needs to stay in the disk drive. The disk drive is the hardware component where the operating system software is stored. It is necessary for the OS to be stored in the disk drive in order for it to be accessible and loaded into the computer's memory when the system is powered on. This allows the OS to control and manage the computer's resources and facilitate the execution of other software programs.

    • E.

      All of these

    Correct Answer
    E. All of these
    Explanation
    The operating system resides in memory in all parts - the upper part, lower part, and middle part. This is because the operating system needs to be loaded into memory in order to execute its functions and manage the resources of the computer. The different parts of memory are used for different purposes, such as storing the operating system code, data, and variables. Therefore, the operating system can be present in all parts of memory depending on the specific requirements and design of the system.
