    These are caused by corrupted or malfunctioning system files or software executables. Most runtime errors cause the application that caused it to shut down. However, more serious runtime errors may cause the system to become unstable or unresponsive, leaving you with no choice but to reach for the Reset button.

    • A.

      System error

    • B.

      Run-time errors

    • C.

      Stop errors

    • D.

      Device manage error

    Correct Answer
    B. Run-time errors
    Explanation
    Runtime errors occur when there is an issue with the execution of a program or application. These errors are typically caused by corrupted or malfunctioning system files or software executables. When a runtime error occurs, it can cause the application to shut down. In more serious cases, runtime errors can make the entire system unstable or unresponsive, forcing the user to reset the system. Therefore, the correct answer is "run-time errors".

    These are caused by corrupted hardware, especially malfunctioning RAM modules and bad sectors on hard disks. Stop errors can be difficult to resolve at times.

    • A.

      System error

    • B.

      Runtime errors

    • C.

      Stop errors

    • D.

      Device manager error

    Correct Answer
    D. Device manager error
    Explanation
    Device manager errors refer to issues related to the device manager in a computer system. The device manager is responsible for managing and controlling hardware devices installed on the computer. Corrupted hardware, such as malfunctioning RAM modules and bad sectors on hard disks, can cause these errors. Resolving device manager errors can be challenging as it requires troubleshooting and potentially replacing faulty hardware components.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    These are usually caused by corrupted driver files or malfunctioning hardware components. In the case of the former cause, the problem is usually solved simply by reinstalling or updating the drivers. However, the latter cause can often be solved only by replacing hardware components.

    • A.

      System error

    • B.

      Runtime error

    • C.

      Stop errors

    • D.

      Device manager error

    Correct Answer
    D. Device manager error
    Explanation
    This answer is correct because a device manager error is usually caused by corrupted driver files or malfunctioning hardware components. Reinstalling or updating the drivers can often solve the issue if it is caused by corrupted driver files. However, if the error is caused by malfunctioning hardware components, the only solution may be to replace those components.

  • 9. 

    The amount of pulling force that makes the electron flow. Also known as potential difference or EMF(electromotive force).

    • A.

      Electricity

    • B.

      Resistance

    • C.

      Current

    • D.

      Voltage

    Correct Answer
    C. Current
    Explanation
    Current refers to the flow of electric charge in a circuit. It is the amount of pulling force, or the rate of flow of electrons, that makes the electric charge move. Current is measured in amperes (A) and is influenced by the voltage, or potential difference, across the circuit, as well as the resistance to the flow of electrons. Therefore, current is a fundamental concept in understanding how electricity behaves in a circuit.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    A type of circuit that has an open path for current to flow. It means that current cannot flow in an open circuit.

    • A.

      Open circuit

    • B.

      Resistance

    • C.

      Current circuit

    • D.

      Closed circuit

    Correct Answer
    A. Open circuit
    Explanation
    An open circuit is a type of circuit that does not have a complete path for current to flow. This means that current cannot flow in an open circuit because there is a break or gap in the circuit. Unlike a closed circuit, where current can flow through a complete path, an open circuit prevents the flow of electricity.
