Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    A bit can take the form of 

    • A.

      0,1

    • B.

      0,0

    • C.

      1,2

    • D.

      1,1

    Correct Answer
    A. 0,1
    Explanation
    A bit is a fundamental unit of information in computing and can have two possible values, 0 or 1. Therefore, the correct answer is 0,1. The other options provided (0,0; 1,2; 1,1) do not represent valid bit values.

  • 2. 

    What does term (bi-stable) means

    • A.

      Components can be set to one state.

    • B.

      Components can be set two of two states.

    • C.

      Components can be set to one of two states.

    • D.

      The components cannot be set.

    Correct Answer
    C. Components can be set to one of two states.
    Explanation
    The term "bi-stable" refers to the ability of components to be set to one of two states. This means that the components have the capability to be in either of two distinct states, and can be switched between these states.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    This is a binary digit, it is the smallest unit of storage in a computer.

    Correct Answer
    Word
  • 4. 

    Symbols, Punctuation mark,Space Bar, Icons, letters etc........

    Correct Answer
    Character
    Explanation
    The given answer "Character" is correct because the question mentions various elements such as symbols, punctuation marks, space bar, icons, and letters, all of which are components of a character. A character represents a single unit of information, typically a letter, number, or symbol, and is used to create written or digital content. Therefore, "Character" is the appropriate term to encompass all the mentioned elements.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

     This is the number of bits in each word of a computer.

    • A.

      WordLength

    • B.

      Word

    • C.

      Wordchoice

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. WordLength
    Explanation
    The term "WordLength" refers to the number of bits in each word of a computer. In computer architecture, a word is the basic unit of data that can be processed or stored in a single operation. The length of a word determines the maximum size of data that can be handled by the computer's processor. Therefore, "WordLength" is the correct answer as it accurately represents the number of bits in each word of a computer.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    This is a binary digit, it is the smallest unit of storage in a computer.

    • A.

      Binary

    • B.

      Bit

    • C.

      Byte

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Bit
    Explanation
    A bit is the smallest unit of storage in a computer, represented by a binary digit, either 0 or 1. It is the fundamental building block of all digital data and is used to represent information and perform calculations in a computer system. A bit can be combined with other bits to form larger units of storage, such as bytes, which consist of 8 bits. Therefore, the correct answer is "Bit".

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    A Word Length is also known as a 

    • A.

      Word

    • B.

      Wordsize

    • C.

      Wordcount

    • D.

      None of the Above

    Correct Answer
    B. Wordsize
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Wordsize" because a word length refers to the number of bits or bytes that can be processed as a single unit by a computer's CPU. It determines the maximum size of data that can be processed by the CPU in one operation. Therefore, "Wordsize" is the term used to describe this characteristic of a computer's architecture.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    This is made up of a combination of eight bits and has the storage power to represent a character.

    • A.

      Bit

    • B.

      Binary

    • C.

      Byte

    • D.

      Bi-stable

    Correct Answer
    C. Byte
    Explanation
    A byte is made up of a combination of eight bits. It has the storage power to represent a character because each bit can be either a 0 or a 1, allowing for a total of 256 possible combinations. This is enough to represent all the characters in a standard character set, such as ASCII or Unicode. Therefore, a byte is the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Calculate the Decimal Measurement  10^6 to  find the Approximate value. Answers should be written in bytes.

    Correct Answer
    1 million bytes
    Explanation
    The given question asks to calculate the decimal measurement of 10^6, which is equivalent to 1 million. The answer is stated as 1 million bytes, indicating that the approximate value of 10^6 in bytes is 1 million.
