    Explanation
    A peripheral device is a device that is connected to a computer but is not part of the core computer architecture. This means that it is an external device that can be attached to a computer system to provide additional functionality or perform specific tasks. Peripheral devices can include input devices such as keyboards and mice, output devices such as monitors and printers, as well as storage devices, network devices, and other accessories. These devices are connected to the computer through various means such as cables, USB connections, or wireless connections.

      Central processing unit

      Scanner

    Correct Answer
    A. Central processing unit
    Explanation
    The central processing unit (CPU) is not a computer peripheral because it is the main component of a computer that carries out instructions and performs calculations. It is the "brain" of the computer and is responsible for executing tasks and processing data. In contrast, peripherals are devices that connect to the computer and provide additional functionality, such as input (keyboard, microphone, scanner) or output (printer). The CPU is an integral part of the computer system and is not considered a peripheral.

    Explanation
    The statement is true because peripherals such as monitors, printers, keyboards, and mice are not essential for the basic functioning of a computer. The computer can still operate and perform tasks without these peripherals. However, it may not be able to perform certain specific functions that require the use of peripherals.
