    What is memory measured in? Please Pick 2

    • A.

      Megabytes

    • B.

      Gigahertz

    • C.

      Gigabytes

    • D.

      Kilabytes

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Megabytes
    C. Gigabytes
    Explanation
    Memory is measured in units called bytes. Megabytes (MB) and gigabytes (GB) are both units of measurement for memory. Megabytes are smaller than gigabytes, with 1 gigabyte equaling 1,024 megabytes. Therefore, both megabytes and gigabytes are valid measurements for memory.

    What is the Central Processing Unit (CPU) known as? Please Pick 2 

    • A.

      The brain of a computer

    • B.

      The monitor

    • C.

      The tower

      The heart of a computer

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. The brain of a computer
    D. The heart of a computer
    Explanation
    The Central Processing Unit (CPU) is known as the brain and heart of a computer. It is responsible for executing instructions, performing calculations, and controlling the overall functioning of the computer. The CPU acts as the brain by processing and interpreting data, while also acting as the heart by coordinating and managing the different components of the computer system.

    What does RAM stand for?

    • A.

      Read All Memory

    • B.

      Random Access Memory

    • C.

      Random All Memory

    • D.

      Read Access Memory

    Correct Answer
    B. Random Access Memory
    Explanation
    RAM stands for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory that allows data to be accessed in any random order, rather than sequentially. It is volatile memory, meaning that its contents are lost when the power is turned off. RAM is used by the computer to temporarily store data that is actively being used by the CPU, providing fast and temporary storage for programs and data.

    What is a Hard drive?

    • A.

      It is in the monitor

    • B.

      It is kept in a memory card

    • C.

      It is used to delete all programs and is another type of memory

    • D.

      It is used to store programs and is another type of memory

    Correct Answer
    D. It is used to store programs and is another type of memory
    Explanation
    A hard drive is a type of storage device used to store programs, files, and data on a computer. It is not located in the monitor or kept in a memory card. While it is a type of memory, it is specifically used for long-term storage and is different from the computer's random access memory (RAM) which is used for short-term storage.

    What does the tower have inside it? Please Pick 2

    • A.

      Monitor

    • B.

      Cooling system

    • C.

      Motherboard

    • D.

      Mouse

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Cooling system
    C. Motherboard
    Explanation
    The tower of a computer typically houses various components that are essential for its functioning. One of these components is the cooling system, which is responsible for keeping the internal temperature of the computer within safe limits. The cooling system usually consists of fans and heat sinks that help dissipate heat generated by the other components. Another crucial component found inside the tower is the motherboard, which acts as the central hub connecting all the other hardware components such as the CPU, RAM, and storage devices. The motherboard provides the necessary communication and power connections for the computer to operate effectively.

    Sound cards translate _ _ _ _ _ _ _ data into analogue sounds.

    Correct Answer(s)
    Digital
    Explanation
    Sound cards are devices that convert digital data into analogue sounds. They receive digital signals from the computer and use digital-to-analogue converters (DACs) to convert the binary data into electrical signals that can be amplified and played through speakers or headphones. Therefore, the correct answer is "Digital" as it accurately describes the type of data that sound cards translate.
