Test Your Knowledge On Information Technology Quiz - Quiz

Wel my quiz is a multiple choice quiz. It is based on the few topics thought in the upper high school. This quiz wil not be very hard but manageable.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    A computer system may be categorised as a:

    • A.

      General purpose or special purpose

    • B.

      Embedded computers

    • C.

      Game consoles and server

    • D.

      Super computers and main frames

    Correct Answer
    A. General purpose or special purpose
    Explanation
    A computer system can be categorized as either general purpose or special purpose. General purpose computers are designed to perform a wide range of tasks and can be used for various applications. They are flexible and can be programmed to perform different functions based on the user's needs. On the other hand, special purpose computers are designed for specific tasks or applications. They are optimized to perform a particular function efficiently and may not be as flexible as general purpose computers.

  • 2. 

    Expand the acronym ALU

    • A.

      Arithmetic Ligic Unit

    • B.

      Arithmetic Log Unit

    • C.

      Arithmetic Logic Unit

    • D.

      Aluminate Logic Unit

    Correct Answer
    C. Arithmetic Logic Unit
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Arithmetic Logic Unit. The ALU is a fundamental component of a computer processor that performs arithmetic and logical operations on binary data. It is responsible for carrying out tasks such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and comparison operations. The term "Arithmetic Logic Unit" accurately describes the function and purpose of this component in computer systems.

    Main memory is also known as:

    • A.

      Immediate access storage

    • B.

      Secondary Storage

    • C.

      PROM

    • D.

      RAM

    Correct Answer
    A. Immediate access storage
    Explanation
    Main memory, also known as primary memory or internal memory, is a type of computer memory that provides immediate access to data and instructions to the CPU. It is called "immediate access storage" because it allows for quick retrieval of data and is directly accessible by the CPU. Secondary storage refers to devices like hard drives and SSDs, which have slower access times compared to main memory. PROM (Programmable Read-Only Memory) is a type of non-volatile memory that can only be programmed once, while RAM (Random Access Memory) is a type of volatile memory that stores data temporarily during program execution.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which of the following best suits the statement below? It's the main memory of the computer system and is volatile.

    • A.

      RAM

    • B.

      ROM

    • C.

      PROM

    • D.

      Primary storage

    Correct Answer
    A. RAM
    Explanation
    RAM, or Random Access Memory, is the best fit for the statement because it is the main memory of the computer system and is volatile. RAM is a type of computer memory that is used to store data that is currently being used by the computer's operating system and applications. It is volatile, meaning that its contents are lost when the computer is powered off or restarted. ROM, PROM, and primary storage are not necessarily volatile and may not be the main memory of the computer system.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    An _______ attempt to gain access to information about a company's plans, products, clients, or trade secrets.

    • A.

      Computer fraud

    • B.

      Identity theft

    • C.

      Credit card fraud

    • D.

      Industrial espionage

    Correct Answer
    D. Industrial espionage
    Explanation
    Industrial espionage refers to the intentional and illicit attempt to gather confidential information about a company's plans, products, clients, or trade secrets. Unlike computer fraud, which involves unauthorized access to computer systems, identity theft, which involves stealing personal information, or credit card fraud, which involves unauthorized use of credit card information, industrial espionage specifically targets corporate intelligence. This can include activities like hacking into computer systems, bribing employees, or using covert surveillance to obtain valuable information.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    All of the following are processing modes except:

    • A.

      Batch processing

    • B.

      Time-sharing

    • C.

      Process

    • D.

      Online

    Correct Answer
    C. Process
    Explanation
    The given question asks for a processing mode that is not included in the options provided. The options include batch processing, time-sharing, process, and online. Among these options, "process" is the only one that does not represent a processing mode. "Process" is a general term used to describe a program or task running on a computer, rather than a specific mode of processing. Therefore, "process" is the correct answer as it does not represent a processing mode.

    What are types of user interface?

    • A.

      Menu driven, command driven, graphical user interface

    • B.

      File management, memory management, device management

    • C.

      General purpose, customised , integrated

    • D.

      System application, software application, system software

    Correct Answer
    A. Menu driven, command driven, graphical user interface
    Explanation
    The types of user interface mentioned in the answer are menu driven, command driven, and graphical user interface. A menu-driven interface allows users to navigate through a series of menus to access different functions or options. A command-driven interface requires users to input specific commands or instructions to perform tasks. A graphical user interface (GUI) uses visual elements such as icons, buttons, and windows to interact with the system. GUIs are more intuitive and user-friendly compared to command-driven interfaces.

    What does SATA stands for?

    • A.

      Serial Advanced Technology Attachments

    • B.

      Small Advanced Technology Attachments

    • C.

      Serial Advanced Technical Attachments

    • D.

      Small Advanced Technical Attachments

    Correct Answer
    A. Serial Advanced Technology Attachments
    Explanation
    SATA stands for Serial Advanced Technology Attachments. This is a type of computer bus interface that connects host bus adapters to mass storage devices such as hard disk drives, solid-state drives, and optical drives. The use of the term "serial" indicates that data is transferred one bit at a time, while "advanced technology attachments" refers to the method of connecting the storage devices to the computer. SATA has largely replaced older parallel ATA (PATA) interfaces due to its faster data transfer rates and improved performance.

    All are secondary storage media except:

    • A.

      Floppy diskette

    • B.

      Compact disk

    • C.

      Magnetic hard disk

    • D.

      Flash memory cards and Fkash drives

    Correct Answer
    B. Compact disk
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Compact disk because it is a type of optical storage media, not a secondary storage media. Secondary storage refers to non-volatile storage devices that are used to store data for long-term use, such as floppy diskettes, magnetic hard disks, and flash memory cards/drives. Compact disks, on the other hand, use optical technology to store and retrieve data, making them a different category of storage media.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    This primary storage stores data and programs that cannot be changed and is non-volatile.

    • A.

      E-EPRM

    • B.

      PROM

    • C.

      ROM

    • D.

      RAM

    Correct Answer
    C. ROM
    Explanation
    ROM stands for Read-Only Memory, which is a type of primary storage that stores data and programs that cannot be changed. It is non-volatile, meaning that the stored information remains even when the power is turned off. Unlike RAM (Random Access Memory) which is volatile and can be both read from and written to, ROM is programmed during manufacturing and its contents cannot be modified or erased by normal computer operations. Therefore, ROM is the correct answer in this case as it fits the description of storing non-changeable data and being non-volatile.
