    What is this hardware?

    • A.

      ROM

    • B.

      RAM

    • C.

      Processor

    Correct Answer
    B. RAM
    Explanation
    RAM stands for Random Access Memory. It is a type of computer memory that is used to store data that is being actively used by the computer. Unlike ROM (Read-Only Memory) which stores permanent data that cannot be changed, RAM is volatile memory and allows for read and write operations. The processor, on the other hand, is the central unit of a computer that carries out instructions and performs calculations. Therefore, the correct answer for this question is RAM, as it is a type of hardware used in computers to temporarily store data.

    Wide Area Network (WAN) usually costs less than Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) to set up. True or false?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because setting up a Wide Area Network (WAN) typically costs more than setting up a Metropolitan Area Network (MAN). WANs cover a larger geographical area and require more infrastructure, such as routers, switches, and leased lines, which can be expensive. On the other hand, MANs are smaller in scale and often utilize existing infrastructure, making them more cost-effective to set up.
