### A 16 bit computer is faster than a 32 bit computer

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
A 32 bit computer is faster because a 32-bit computer can process 32-bit numbers in one operation, while a 16-bit computer must break 32-bit numbers down into smaller pieces, making it slower.

• D.

01001110

• E.

01011010

A. 00111111
Explanation
The given answer "00111111" is the binary representation of the decimal number 63. In binary, each digit represents a power of 2, starting from the rightmost digit as 2^0. By adding up the values of the digits that are 1, we get the decimal equivalent. In this case, the binary number has a 1 in the 2^0, 2^1, 2^2, 2^3, 2^4, and 2^5 positions, which adds up to 63 in decimal.

### 128

• A.

00111111

• B.

10000000

• C.

01101001

• D.

01001110

• E.

01011010

B. 10000000
Explanation
The given answer, 10000000, is the binary representation of the decimal number 128. In binary, each digit represents a power of 2, starting from the rightmost digit being 2^0. Therefore, the leftmost digit being 1 indicates that 128 is composed of the 2^7 (128) value. The remaining digits are all zeros, indicating that there are no other powers of 2 present in the number.

### A multi-user Operating System

• A.

Allows many users to use the system simultaneously

• B.

Allows a single user to run many programs simultaneously

• C.

Is simpler in structure than a Single-User Operating System

• D.

Would have less complex memory handling techniques than a Single-User Operating System

A. Allows many users to use the system simultaneously
Explanation
A multi-user Operating System allows many users to use the system simultaneously. This means that multiple users can access the system and perform tasks at the same time, without interfering with each other's work. This is achieved by providing each user with a separate login and session, allowing them to run their own programs and perform their own tasks independently. This is in contrast to a single-user Operating System, where only one user can use the system at a time.

### Which of the following is NOT system software?

• A.

The Operating System

• B.

Device Driver (eg Printer Driver)

• C.

Wordprocessor

• D.

Defrag Utility

• E.

Format Utility

C. Wordprocessor
Explanation
A word processor is not considered system software because it is an application software used for creating, editing, and formatting text documents. System software, on the other hand, refers to the core software that manages and controls the computer's hardware and provides a platform for other software to run. Examples of system software include the operating system, device drivers, defrag utility, and format utility, which directly interact with the hardware and perform essential system-level tasks.
