    Which of the following correctly describes the bootup process?

    • A.

      The CPU verifies the hardware, loads the application programs, then loads the built-in instructions in ROM.

    • B.

      The CPU looks for and loads the operating system from disk, checks the hardware then loads the built-in instructions in ROM.

    • C.

       The CPU verifies the hardware and then loads the built-in instructions residing in ROM, which looks for the Operating System on disk and loads it into RAM.

    • D.

      The CPU verifies the hardware and then loads the built-in instruction residing in ROM, which looks for the OS in RAM and copies it to the disk.

    Correct Answer
    C.  The CPU verifies the hardware and then loads the built-in instructions residing in ROM, which looks for the Operating System on disk and loads it into RAM.
    Explanation
    The correct answer describes the bootup process as follows: The CPU first verifies the hardware, ensuring that all components are functioning properly. Then, it loads the built-in instructions that are stored in ROM (Read-Only Memory). These instructions are responsible for searching for the Operating System (OS) on the disk. Once the OS is located, it is loaded into RAM (Random Access Memory), which allows for faster access and execution of the OS by the CPU.

    Which of of the following internet connections provides the fastest bandwidth?

    • A.

      Dial-Up

    • B.

      T1

    • C.

      DSL

    • D.

      Cable

    Which of the following is the second stage of software development?

    • A.

      Debugging

    • B.

      Design and Coding

    • C.

      Quality Assurance

    • D.

      Beta Testing

    Correct Answer
    B. Design and Coding
    Explanation
    In the context of software development, the second stage is "Design and Coding." During this phase, software engineers and developers design the structure and architecture of the software based on the requirements outlined in the previous phase. This involves creating detailed technical specifications and plans for how the software will be implemented.
    Once the design is complete, the actual coding or programming begins. Developers write the source code, which is a set of instructions that the computer can understand and execute. The coding phase involves translating the design into a functional program, and it requires expertise in programming languages and adherence to coding standards.
    In summary, the Design and Coding phase is crucial for laying the foundation of the software and transforming conceptual designs into executable code.

    Which one of the following improves the performance of the computer when working with multiple applications at the same time?

    • A.

      More RAM

    • B.

      More ROM

    • C.

      Faster floppy drive

    • D.

      Faster CD-ROM

    Correct Answer
    A. More RAM
    Explanation
    More RAM improves the performance of the computer when working with multiple applications at the same time because it provides additional memory for the computer to store and access data. When the computer runs out of RAM, it starts using the hard drive as virtual memory, which is much slower. By increasing the amount of RAM, the computer can keep more data readily accessible, reducing the need for frequent data transfers between the RAM and hard drive, resulting in improved performance.

    Correct Answer
    B. A desktop computer with a 1.5 GHz processor, 256 MB of RAM, and a 30 GB hard disk.
    Explanation
    A desktop computer with a 1.5 GHZ processor, 256 MB of RAM, and an 30 GB hard disk is the most suitable and economical choice for writing letters and accessing the Internet from home. For basic tasks like writing letters and browsing the Internet, the processor speed and RAM capacity do not need to be very high. The 1.5 GHZ processor and 256 MB of RAM are sufficient for these tasks. Additionally, the 30 GB hard disk provides enough storage space for documents and other files typically used for letter writing. This option strikes a balance between functionality and cost-effectiveness.
