  • 5. 

    The type of memory that sotrage is not erased even if computer is turned off is called

    • A.

      RAM

    • B.

      ROM

    • C.

      CPU

    • D.

      ALU

    • E.

      MU

    Correct Answer
    B. ROM
    Explanation
    ROM stands for Read-Only Memory. It is a type of memory that retains data even when the computer is turned off or loses power. Unlike RAM (Random Access Memory), which is volatile and loses its data when power is cut off, ROM is non-volatile and its contents are permanently stored. This makes ROM ideal for storing important system instructions and firmware that need to be accessed every time the computer is turned on. Therefore, the correct answer is ROM.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The working memory that is used for primary storage is referred to as

    • A.

      RAM

    • B.

      ROM

    • C.

      CPU

    • D.

      ALU

    • E.

      MU

    Correct Answer
    A. RAM
    Explanation
    RAM stands for Random Access Memory. It is a type of computer memory that is used for primary storage. RAM is a volatile memory, meaning that its contents are lost when the power is turned off. It is used by the computer to store data that is currently being used or processed. Unlike ROM (Read-Only Memory) which is non-volatile and contains permanent instructions for the computer, RAM allows for quick access and retrieval of data, making it ideal for primary storage. CPU (Central Processing Unit) is the main component that performs most of the processing inside a computer, ALU (Arithmetic Logic Unit) is a subunit of the CPU that performs arithmetic and logical operations, and MU (Memory Unit) is a general term for any type of computer memory.

      None of the choices

    Correct Answer
    B. Digital
    Explanation
    A class of computer that operates on discrete discontinuous numerical digits using the binary numbering system is referred to as a digital computer. Digital computers use binary code, which consists of only two digits (0 and 1), to represent and process information. This allows for precise and accurate calculations and data manipulation, making digital computers suitable for a wide range of applications. Analog computers, on the other hand, operate on continuous data and use analog signals to represent and process information. Hybrid computers combine features of both digital and analog computers.

    A decision support system is a computer system that supports some aspect of the human decision-making process. It provides users with the tools and information necessary to analyze complex problems and make informed decisions. Unlike transaction systems, which are focused on processing and recording transactions, decision support systems are designed to assist in decision-making by providing data analysis, modeling, and simulation capabilities. Physiologic monitoring systems are used to monitor and analyze physiological parameters, while management information systems are designed to support operational activities and provide information for managerial decision-making.

    A. Free software
    Explanation
    Free software is a matter of the user's freedom to copy, run, distribute, study, change, and improve the software. This means that users have the freedom to use the software as they wish, including making modifications and distributing it to others. It is in contrast to licensed software, which typically has restrictions on how it can be used and distributed. System software refers to the software that manages and controls the computer hardware, so it is not directly related to the user's freedom to use and modify software. Therefore, the correct answer is free software.
