    • E.

      FLOPPY DISK

    Correct Answer
    B. RAM
    Explanation
    RAM stands for Random Access Memory and is commonly known as "Volatile-Memory" because it is a type of computer memory that can be both written to and read from. It is called volatile because its data is lost when the computer is turned off or restarted. RAM is used to temporarily store data that the computer needs to access quickly, such as running programs and open files. It provides fast and temporary storage for data, allowing the computer to quickly retrieve and manipulate information. Unlike ROM, hard disk, flash drives, and floppy disks, RAM is not a permanent storage medium and its contents are constantly changing.
