Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which computer part works as the BRAIN of the computer, processing all information?

    • A.

      Motherboard

    • B.

      CPU

    • C.

      Hard Drive

    • D.

      RAM (Memory)

    • E.

      Power Supply

    • F.

      CD/DVD Drive

    Correct Answer
    B. CPU
    Explanation
    The CPU, or Central Processing Unit, is the brain of the computer. It is responsible for processing all the information and executing instructions. The CPU performs calculations, manages data flow, and controls the overall operation of the computer system. It is considered the most important component of a computer as it determines the speed and performance of the system. The other options listed are important components as well, but they do not have the same level of processing capabilities as the CPU.

    Which computer part is the main circuit board that connects ALL of the computer’s components together?

    • A.

      Motherboard

    • B.

      CPU

    • C.

      Hard Drive

    • D.

      RAM (Memory)

    • E.

      Power Supply

    • F.

      CD/DVD Drive

    Correct Answer
    A. Motherboard
    Explanation
    The motherboard is the main circuit board that connects all of the computer's components together. It provides the electrical connections and pathways for communication between the CPU, RAM, hard drive, power supply, and other peripherals. It acts as a central hub, allowing data and instructions to flow between different parts of the computer. Without a motherboard, the computer components would not be able to communicate with each other and the computer would not function properly.

  • 3. 

    Which computer part stores information that the computer reads from and writes to, but is erased once the computer is turned off?

    • A.

      Motherboard

    • B.

      CPU

    • C.

      Hard Drive

    • D.

      RAM (Memory)

    • E.

      Power Supply

    • F.

      CD/DVD Drive

    Correct Answer
    D. RAM (Memory)
    Explanation
    RAM (Memory) is the correct answer because it is a type of computer memory that stores data that the computer needs to access quickly. It is volatile memory, meaning that its contents are erased when the computer is turned off or restarted. RAM is used to temporarily store data that the CPU needs to access while the computer is running, such as running programs and open files. Once the computer is turned off, the data stored in RAM is no longer accessible.

  • 4. 

    Which computer part stores information that the computer reads from and writes to, and saves the information even when the computer is turned off?

    • A.

      Motherboard

    • B.

      CPU

    • C.

      Hard Drive

    • D.

      RAM (Memory)

    • E.

      Power Supply

    • F.

      CD/DVD Drive

    Correct Answer
    C. Hard Drive
    Explanation
    A hard drive is a computer part that stores information that the computer reads from and writes to, and it also saves the information even when the computer is turned off. This is because hard drives are non-volatile storage devices, meaning they retain data even without power.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which computer part provides electrical power to the computer?

    • A.

      Motherboard

    • B.

      CPU

    • C.

      Hard Drive

    • D.

      RAM (Memory)

    • E.

      Power Supply

    • F.

      CD/DVD Drive

    Correct Answer
    E. Power Supply
    Explanation
    The power supply is responsible for providing electrical power to the computer. It takes the electricity from the wall outlet and converts it into the appropriate voltage and current required by the computer components. Without a power supply, the computer would not be able to function as it needs a constant and stable power source to operate. The motherboard, CPU, hard drive, RAM, and CD/DVD drive all rely on the power supply to receive the necessary electrical power.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which computer part uses laser light or electromagnetic waves to read from or write to a CD or DVD?

    • A.

      Motherboard

    • B.

      CPU

    • C.

      Hard Drive

    • D.

      RAM (Memory)

    • E.

      Power Supply

    • F.

      CD/DVD Drive

    Correct Answer
    F. CD/DVD Drive
    Explanation
    A CD/DVD drive uses laser light or electromagnetic waves to read from or write to a CD or DVD. This technology allows the drive to accurately read the data stored on the disc and transfer it to the computer or write new data onto a blank disc. The other options mentioned, such as the motherboard, CPU, hard drive, RAM, and power supply, do not directly involve the use of laser light or electromagnetic waves for reading or writing data on CDs or DVDs.
