    Explanation
    System software refers to a collection of programs that facilitate the coordination and interaction between a computer's hardware devices and application software. It includes operating systems, device drivers, and utility programs that ensure the smooth functioning of the computer system. System software acts as an intermediary between the hardware and software, providing a platform for applications to run efficiently. It manages the computer's resources, controls peripheral devices, and provides a user-friendly interface for users to interact with the computer.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The most frequently used instructions of a computer program are likely to be fetched from

    • A.

      Hard disk

    • B.

      Cache memory

    • C.

      RAM

    • D.

      Registers

    • E.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    B. Cache memory
    Explanation
    The most frequently used instructions of a computer program are likely to be fetched from cache memory. Cache memory is a small, high-speed memory located close to the CPU. It stores frequently accessed data and instructions to reduce the time it takes to access them from the slower main memory (RAM) or even slower storage devices like the hard disk. By keeping frequently used instructions in cache memory, the computer can quickly retrieve them, improving overall program execution speed.

  • 7. 

    The components that process data are located in the

    • A.

      Input devices

    • B.

      Output devices

    • C.

      System unit

    • D.

      Storage Component

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. System unit
    Explanation
    The components that process data are located in the system unit. The system unit is the main component of a computer that houses the motherboard, CPU, memory, and other essential hardware components. These components work together to process data and perform calculations. Input and output devices, such as keyboards, mice, monitors, and printers, are responsible for sending and receiving data to and from the system unit, but they do not actually process the data themselves. The storage component, on the other hand, is responsible for storing data but does not process it. Therefore, the correct answer is the system unit.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which type of data has been organized or presented in a meaningful fashion?

    • A.

      A process

    • B.

      Software

    • C.

      Storage

    • D.

      Information

    • E.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    D. Information
    Explanation
    Information is the correct answer because it refers to data that has been processed, organized, or presented in a way that is meaningful and useful. Data on its own may not have any significance, but when it is transformed into information, it becomes valuable and can be used to make informed decisions or gain insights.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      Hide

    • B.

      Stores

    • C.

      Write

    • D.

      Delete

    • E.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    B. Stores
    Explanation
    After processing the data and generating the desired output, a computer typically stores the data or information for future use. Storing the data allows the computer to retain the processed information and make it available for further analysis or retrieval when needed. Therefore, "stores" is the correct answer as it accurately describes the action taken by a computer after processing and outputting the data.

    Correct Answer
    A. Personal computer
    Explanation
    A personal computer is a microprocessor based computing device that is designed for individual use. It is a small and portable device that can perform various tasks such as word processing, internet browsing, and multimedia playback. Unlike mainframes, workstations, and servers, personal computers are typically used by one person at a time and are not intended for large-scale computing or network operations.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Which type of software is distributed free but requires the users to pay some amount for further use?

    • A.

      Freeware

    • B.

      Shareware

    • C.

      Rentalware

    • D.

      Public domain software

    • E.

      Abandonware

    Correct Answer
    A. Freeware
    Explanation
    Freeware is a type of software that is distributed for free to users. However, in some cases, freeware may require users to pay a certain amount for additional features or extended usage. This payment is optional and not mandatory for the basic functionality of the software. Therefore, freeware fits the description of software that is distributed free but requires users to pay some amount for further use.

  • 12. 

    External devices such as printers, keyboards and modems are known as

    • A.

      Add on devices

    • B.

      Peripherals

    • C.

      PC expansion slot add-ons

    • D.

      Extra hardware devices

    • E.

      Special buys

    Correct Answer
    B. Peripherals
    Explanation
    External devices such as printers, keyboards, and modems are commonly referred to as peripherals. Peripherals are additional hardware devices that can be connected to a computer system to enhance its functionality or provide additional features. They are not an integral part of the computer system but rather add-on devices that can be connected or disconnected as needed. Therefore, the term "peripherals" accurately describes these external devices.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    B. Motherboard
    Explanation
    The CPU (Central Processing Unit) and memory are essential components of a computer system, and they are both located on the motherboard. The motherboard is the main circuit board that connects all the other components of the computer, including the CPU, memory, storage devices, and output devices. It provides the necessary pathways for data transfer and communication between these components. Therefore, the motherboard is the correct answer as it houses the CPU and memory.

It implies that the instructions and interface are clear, intuitive, and accessible, allowing users to easily navigate and interact with the system without confusion or difficulty. This term is commonly used to describe software, websites, and other technological devices that prioritize usability and a positive user experience.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Storage that retains its data after the power is turned off is referred to as

    • A.

      Volatile storage

    • B.

      Non-volatile storage

    • C.

      Sequential storage

    • D.

      Direct storage

    • E.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    B. Non-volatile storage
    Explanation
    Non-volatile storage refers to a type of storage that retains its data even when the power is turned off. This means that the data stored in non-volatile storage remains intact and accessible even after a power outage or system shutdown. In contrast, volatile storage, such as RAM, loses its data when the power is cut off. Sequential storage and direct storage are not relevant terms in this context. Therefore, the correct answer is non-volatile storage.
