    Explanation
    The correct answer is that impact printers make direct physical contact with paper, while non-impact printers do not. This means that impact printers use a mechanism to strike the paper and create the desired print, while non-impact printers use other methods such as spraying ink or using heat to transfer the image onto the paper. This physical contact allows impact printers to produce prints with better quality and clarity. Additionally, the fact that impact printers make direct contact with the paper also contributes to their faster printing speed compared to non-impact printers.
