    Contrast ratios in LCDs and plasma - contrast between black and white: larger the ration the better

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because in LCDs and plasma displays, the contrast ratio refers to the difference in brightness between the darkest black and the brightest white that the screen can produce. A larger contrast ratio means a greater difference between the two extremes, resulting in a more vibrant and visually appealing image. Therefore, a higher contrast ratio is generally considered better as it enhances the overall picture quality and improves the viewing experience.

    Which of these LCD monitor contrast ratios is better:

    • A.

      1:5000 (more is better)

    • B.

      1:1000

    • C.

      1:1100

    Correct Answer
    A. 1:5000 (more is better)
    Explanation
    The higher the contrast ratio of an LCD monitor, the better the image quality and the more vibrant and detailed the colors will appear. A contrast ratio of 1:5000 indicates that the monitor can display a much wider range of colors and shades, resulting in a more immersive and visually appealing experience for the user. In comparison, a contrast ratio of 1:1000 or 1:1100 would not be able to provide the same level of color accuracy and depth.

    The BIOS contains the instructions on how the computer boots and can only be changed by flashing.  CMOS contains your system settings and can be manually re-configured.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) is a firmware that contains the instructions on how the computer boots up. It is responsible for initializing and configuring the hardware components of the computer. The BIOS is stored on a chip on the motherboard and can only be changed by flashing, which is a process of updating the firmware. On the other hand, CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor) is a small amount of memory that stores the system settings of the computer, such as date, time, and hardware configuration. Unlike the BIOS, the CMOS settings can be manually re-configured by the user. Therefore, the statement is true.
