### In which kind of disk does the read/write head physically touches the surface?

• A.

Hard Disk

• B.

Floppy Disk

• C.

Compact Disk

• D.

All of the Above

B. Floppy Disk
Explanation
A floppy disk is a kind of disk in which the read/write head physically touches the surface. Unlike hard disks and compact disks, floppy disks have a flexible magnetic storage medium that requires direct contact with the read/write head for data transfer. This direct physical contact is necessary for the read/write head to magnetically read and write data on the floppy disk's surface. Therefore, the correct answer is Floppy Disk.

### What is the correct syntax for typing a function into a cell?

• A.

Equal sign, Function Name, Matching brackets

• B.

Function Name, Equal sign, Matching brackets

• C.

Equal sign, Matching brackets, Function Name

• D.

None of the above

A. Equal sign, Function Name, Matching brackets
Explanation
To type a function into a cell, the correct syntax is to start with an equal sign, followed by the function name, and then include the matching brackets. This syntax is used in most spreadsheet programs, such as Microsoft Excel and Google Sheets, to indicate that the content of the cell is a formula or function. By using this syntax, the program will recognize the input as a function and perform the necessary calculations or actions accordingly.

### Cache memory is–

• A.

Smaller and faster than main storage

• B.

Bigger and slower than main storage

• C.

Smaller but slower than main memory

• D.

Bigger and faster than main memory

A. Smaller and faster than main storage
Explanation
Cache memory is smaller and faster than main storage because it is designed to store frequently accessed data and instructions closer to the CPU. This allows the CPU to quickly retrieve this data, reducing the time it takes for the CPU to access information from the main memory. Cache memory acts as a buffer between the CPU and the main memory, improving the overall performance of the system by reducing the latency in accessing data.

### The overall design, construction, organization and interconnecting of the various components of a  computer system is referred as–

• A.

Computer Flowchart

• B.

Computer Algorithm

• C.

Computer Architecture

• D.

Allof the Above

C. Computer Architecture
Explanation
Computer architecture refers to the overall design, construction, organization, and interconnecting of the various components of a computer system. It encompasses the hardware and software aspects of a computer system, including the central processing unit, memory, input/output devices, and the system bus. Computer architecture determines how these components are organized and how they interact with each other to perform tasks. It also includes the instruction set architecture, which defines the set of instructions that a computer can execute. Therefore, computer architecture is the correct answer as it encompasses all the mentioned aspects.

### BIOS are responsible for

• A.

Handling the particulars of input/output operations

• B.

Output operations

• C.

Input operations

• D.

All of these

A. Handling the particulars of input/output operations
Explanation
BIOS, or Basic Input/Output System, is responsible for handling the particulars of input/output operations. This means that it manages the communication between the computer's hardware and software, including devices such as keyboards, mice, monitors, and printers. The BIOS ensures that input devices are recognized and can be used to provide input to the computer, and it also controls the output devices to display information or send data to external devices. In summary, the BIOS plays a crucial role in managing both input and output operations of a computer system.

### BISYNC is an abbreviation for–

• A.

Binary Input/Binary Output

• B.

Binary synchronous

• C.

Binary digit

• D.

All of the above

B. Binary synchronous
Explanation
BISYNC is an abbreviation for Binary Synchronous. This term refers to a communication protocol that allows data to be transmitted in a synchronous manner, meaning that it is sent in a continuous stream of bits. The other options, Binary Input/Binary Output and Binary digit, do not accurately represent the meaning of BISYNC. Therefore, the correct answer is Binary Synchronous.

### A process of trying out a new product by independent users before it is finally manufactured/developed–

• A.

Alfa Test

• B.

Beta test

• C.

Gamma test

• D.

None of these

B. Beta test
Explanation
Beta testing is a process of trying out a new product by independent users before it is finally manufactured/developed. This testing phase allows for the identification of any potential issues or bugs in the product, which can then be addressed before the final release. Beta testing helps gather feedback from real users, enabling the developers to make necessary improvements and ensure a more stable and satisfactory product for the market.

### An E-mail protocol for storage, management and change, especially in corporate offices–

• A.

Postal Services

• B.

Message handling service

• C.

### The technique where digital signals are converted to its analog form for transmission over an analog facility is called–

• A.

Modulation

• B.

Digitization

• C.

Multiprocessing

• D.

All of the Above

A. Modulation
Explanation
Modulation is the technique where digital signals are converted to its analog form for transmission over an analog facility. This process involves modifying one or more properties of the carrier signal, such as amplitude, frequency, or phase, to represent the digital information. By doing so, the digital information can be transmitted over analog channels, such as telephone lines or radio waves, which are better suited for analog signals. Therefore, modulation is the correct answer to the question.
