Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    This is the part of the computer system that one can touch.

    • A.

      Hardware

    • B.

      Data

    • C.

      Software

    • D.

      Input

    Correct Answer
    A. Hardware
    Explanation
    Hardware refers to the physical components of a computer system that can be touched or physically interacted with. This includes devices such as the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and central processing unit (CPU). Unlike software or data, which are intangible and stored electronically, hardware is tangible and can be physically manipulated. Therefore, the correct answer is hardware.

      16

    • D.

      Hundreds of

    Correct Answer
    B. 4
    Explanation
    A computer system typically consists of several essential components, including the central processing unit (CPU), memory, storage devices, and input/output devices. These components work together to perform various tasks and execute instructions. Therefore, it is reasonable to say that there are four parts to a computer system.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    __________ is processed by the computer into information.

    • A.

      Numbers

    • B.

      Processers

    • C.

      Inputs

    • D.

      Data

    Correct Answer
    D. Data
    Explanation
    Data is processed by the computer into information. Data refers to raw facts, figures, or symbols that are input into the computer system. These inputs are then processed by the computer, which performs operations on the data to convert it into meaningful information. Therefore, data is the correct answer as it accurately describes the information that is processed by the computer.

  • 4. 

    During the __________ portion of the Information Processing Cycle, the computer acquires data from some source.

    • A.

      Processing

    • B.

      Output

    • C.

      Input

    • D.

      Storage

    Correct Answer
    C. Input
    Explanation
    During the input portion of the Information Processing Cycle, the computer acquires data from some source. This is when the computer receives information or data from an external source, such as a keyboard, mouse, scanner, or microphone. The input data is then processed by the computer to perform various operations and tasks.

    Keyboards and joystricks are examples of:

    • A.

      Output

    • B.

      Input

    • C.

      Storage

    • D.

      Process

    Correct Answer
    B. Input
    Explanation
    Keyboards and joysticks are examples of input devices. These devices allow users to input data or commands into a computer or electronic system. Keyboards are used to input text and commands by pressing keys, while joysticks are used to control movement or actions in video games or other interactive systems. Therefore, keyboards and joysticks are considered input devices as they provide a means for users to input information or commands into a computer or electronic device.

    Hardware that allows you to communicate wih your computer is called a/an

    • A.

      Output

    • B.

      Intputs

    • C.

      Storage

    • D.

      Power

    Correct Answer
    B. Intputs
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "inputs". Inputs refer to the hardware devices that allow users to send information or commands to a computer. Examples of inputs include keyboards, mice, touchscreens, and microphones. These devices enable users to interact with the computer and provide input for processing.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The information processing cycle includes the following processes:

    • A.

      Input, processing, output, storage

    • B.

      Input, output, manipulation, arithmetic

    • C.

      Data, processing, printing, editing

    • D.

      Storage, display, data, information

    Correct Answer
    A. Input, processing, output, storage
    Explanation
    The correct answer is input, processing, output, storage. This is because the information processing cycle begins with input, where data is entered into a computer system. Then, the data goes through processing, where it is manipulated and transformed into meaningful information. After processing, the output stage occurs, where the processed information is presented to the user in a usable format. Finally, storage takes place, where the information is stored for future use or reference.

    What does RAM means

    • A.

      Read Access Memory

    • B.

      Random Acess Memeory

    • C.

      Ready Access Memory

    • D.

      Read Application Meemory

    Correct Answer
    B. Random Acess Memeory
    Explanation
    RAM stands for Random Access Memory. It is a type of computer memory that allows data to be read from or written to in any order, making it random access. This means that information can be retrieved from any location in RAM with equal speed, regardless of the physical location of the data. RAM is a volatile memory, meaning that its contents are lost when the computer is powered off or restarted. It is used by the computer's operating system and software applications to temporarily store data that is actively being used, providing faster access compared to other types of storage devices.

    • C.

      Braille

    • D.

      Touchscreen

    Correct Answer
    C. Braille
    Explanation
    Braille is a system of raised dots that can be felt with the fingertips, allowing blind individuals to read and write. It is commonly used by blind people to access information on a computer. Braille displays and keyboards are specifically designed to convert the text on the screen into Braille characters, enabling blind individuals to interact with the computer and perform various operations. Therefore, Braille is the correct answer as it is the interface used by blind persons to perform operations on a computer.
