      The hard drive

    • B.

      The disk drive

      The motherboard

    • D.

      The ports

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The motherboard is responsible for generating the most heat in a computer. This is because it contains various components such as the CPU, GPU, and power regulators, which produce heat during their operation. The motherboard also acts as a central hub connecting all other components, making it a major source of heat generation. Cooling systems such as fans and heat sinks are often used to dissipate this heat and prevent damage to the motherboard and other components.

    Correct Answer
    C. Laptops
    Explanation
    Laptops are not memory storage devices, but rather portable computers that contain memory storage devices such as hard drives or solid-state drives. While laptops can be purchased, they themselves are not considered memory storage devices that are typically sold separately. Flash drives, CD-Rs, and DVD-Rs, on the other hand, are all memory storage devices that are commonly available for purchase.

      Color

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Toner Catridge
    Explanation
    A toner cartridge is the correct answer because it is specifically designed for dry ink printing. Toner cartridges are used in laser printers and photocopiers to produce high-quality prints. Unlike ink cartridges, which contain liquid ink, toner cartridges contain a dry powder called toner. This powder is transferred onto the paper using heat and pressure, resulting in sharp and durable prints. Therefore, a toner cartridge is the appropriate option for printing with dry ink.

      Color

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Ink catridge
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Ink cartridge" because liquid pigment is used for printing, and ink cartridges are the containers that hold the liquid ink used in printers. Toner cartridges, on the other hand, are used in laser printers and contain a dry powder called toner. Therefore, ink cartridge is the most appropriate option among the given choices.

    Rate this question:

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Mega pixel
    Explanation
    A mega pixel is a unit of measurement for digital images, representing one million pixels. Pixels are the smallest units of a digital image, and the resolution of an image is determined by the number of pixels it contains. Therefore, a mega pixel refers to a large number of pixels, specifically one million of them. This term is commonly used in photography and digital imaging to describe the quality and clarity of an image.

GPS technology uses satellite signals to determine the user's location and provide navigation information, which often includes maps. By accessing maps, GPS devices can accurately guide users to their desired destinations by providing directions and displaying the route on the screen. This feature is particularly useful for navigation purposes, whether it be for driving, walking, or other outdoor activities.

    Correct Answer
    A. GUI
    Explanation
    GUI stands for Graphical User Interface. It is a type of interface that allows users to interact with the computer visually, using graphical elements such as icons, menus, and buttons. GUI provides a more intuitive and user-friendly way of interacting with the computer compared to a command-line interface (CLI), which relies on text commands. The cursor is a graphical representation of the user's input position on the screen, and the monitor is the display device. However, it is the GUI that enables visual interaction with the computer.

      Pointers

    Correct Answer
    B. Icons
    Explanation
    Icons can represent a file, program, or folder in a graphical user interface. Icons are visual representations that allow users to quickly identify and access different types of files, programs, or folders on their computer. They are usually small images or symbols that are displayed on the desktop or within file managers, and clicking on an icon typically opens or launches the associated file, program, or folder. Icons help to organize and visually represent the various elements and resources on a computer system, making it easier for users to navigate and interact with their files and applications.

    • D.

      The trash folder

    Correct Answer

It allows the user to save their progress and come back to it later before sending it out. Emails in the draft folder are not yet sent or received by any recipient.

    Rate this question:

      E-mail

    • B.

      E-mail client

    • C.

      Junk mail

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. E-mail
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "e-mail" because an electronic message sent by a computer is commonly referred to as an email. This term is widely used to describe the exchange of digital messages between individuals or groups using electronic devices. An email can contain text, images, attachments, and can be sent to multiple recipients simultaneously. It has become a popular and convenient means of communication in both personal and professional settings.

    Rate this question:

  • 15.

      Facebook

    • B.

      Phone book

    • C.

      Address book

    • D.

      Text book

    Correct Answer
    C. Address book
    Explanation
    An address book is a place where contact information is listed. It is typically a physical or digital book that contains names, addresses, phone numbers, and other contact details of individuals or organizations. It serves as a convenient reference for storing and retrieving contact information, making it easier to communicate and stay connected with others. Unlike Facebook, which is a social media platform, or a phone book, which specifically lists phone numbers, an address book encompasses a broader range of contact information. A textbook, on the other hand, is a different type of book that is used for educational purposes and does not focus on contact information.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Unnecessary or unwelcome messages

    • A.

      Junk folder

    • B.

      Inbox

      Trash folder

    • D.

      Draft folder

    Correct Answer
    A. Junk folder
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Junk folder" because it is the designated folder in an email system where unwanted or spam messages are automatically filtered and stored. These messages are considered unnecessary or unwelcome, and are thus placed in the junk folder to keep the inbox clean and organized.

    Rate this question:

  • 17.

    • A.

      Bcc

    • B.

      Reply

    • C.

      Reply all

    • D.

      Forward

    Correct Answer
    C. Reply all
    Explanation
    Reply all is the correct answer because it allows the sender to respond to the original email and include all the recipients of the original email in the response. This is useful when the sender wants to keep everyone in the loop and ensure that all recipients receive the response. Bcc is not the correct answer because it stands for blind carbon copy and is used to send a copy of an email to someone without the other recipients knowing. Reply and Forward are also not the correct answers as they do not include all the recipients in the response.

    Rate this question:

  • 18.

    • A.

      Bcc

    • B.

      Address book

    • C.

      Forward

    • D.

      Drafts

    Correct Answer
    A. Bcc
    Explanation
    Bcc stands for "Blind Carbon Copy." When sending an email, using the Bcc field allows the sender to hide the recipients' email addresses from each other. This ensures that the recipients cannot see who else received the email, maintaining their privacy. Bcc is commonly used when sending mass emails or when the sender wants to keep the recipients' identities confidential.

    Explanation
    The given question asks for a function that is not mentioned as part of a word processing program. The options provided include creating memos, sending emails, making business cards, and creating calendars. The correct answer, sending emails, is not mentioned as a function of the word processing program. Word processing programs are primarily used for creating and editing text-based documents, such as memos, letters, and reports. While some word processing programs may have additional features, such as creating calendars or business cards, sending emails is typically not a function directly associated with word processing programs.

    Merging refers to the process of combining cells in a spreadsheet or table. It allows multiple adjacent cells to be merged into a single larger cell. This can be useful for formatting purposes or when dealing with large amounts of data that need to be organized in a more concise manner. By merging cells, the content from all the original cells is combined into one cell, making it easier to read and analyze the data.

It is a useful feature for quickly accessing frequently visited sites or for retracing steps while browsing the internet.

In a network, devices such as computers, printers, and routers are interconnected to share resources and communicate with each other. Networking involves the configuration and management of these devices to enable data transfer and access to resources. Therefore, networking is the most appropriate term that encompasses the process of connecting series of devices.

  • 27. 

    People use their ________ computer in a single location

    • A.

      Desktop computer

    • B.

      Laptop

    • C.

      Mainframe computer

    • D.

      PDA

    Correct Answer
    A. Desktop computer
    Explanation
    People use their desktop computer in a single location because it is a stationary device that is not designed for portability. Unlike laptops or PDAs, which are designed to be carried around and used in various locations, desktop computers are typically set up in one specific area, such as a home office or a workplace. They are larger and have more components, making them less convenient to move around. Additionally, desktop computers are often connected to external peripherals such as monitors, keyboards, and mice, further limiting their mobility.

      Shift key

    • C.

      Control key

    • D.

      Alt key

    Correct Answer
    A. Capslock key
    Explanation
    The Capslock key is used to type capital letters. When the Capslock key is activated, all letters that are typed will be in uppercase until the key is turned off. This is convenient when typing a long string of capital letters or when you want to type in all caps without holding down the Shift key for each letter. The Shift key, Control key, and Alt key do not specifically toggle the typing of capital letters.

Scanning involves using a scanner to capture an image of the document, which is then converted into a digital file that can be stored and accessed electronically. This process allows for easy storage, retrieval, and sharing of documents, eliminating the need for physical copies and making it more convenient to manage and organize information.
