    Explanation
    Impact printers are noisy printers because they use a mechanism that physically strikes the paper to create an image or text. This striking action produces a loud noise, which is characteristic of impact printers. Unlike non-impact printers that use other methods like inkjet or laser technology, impact printers are known for their audible operation.

    • A.

      Organisational policy

    • B.

      Manufacturer's manual

    • C.

    A. Organisational policy
    Explanation
    Organizational policies typically outline guidelines and rules for various aspects of an organization, including the use of resources like printers. These policies state who should use the printer and provide instructions on how it should be used. Manufacturer's manuals, on the other hand, focus more on technical specifications and troubleshooting, while training notes are specific to training sessions and may not cover all aspects of printer usage. Therefore, organizational policy is the most appropriate document to provide information on printer usage and users.

    B. Manufacturer's manual
    Explanation
    The manufacturer's manual is the document that usually suggests how to install, reset, or uninstall the printer. This manual is provided by the manufacturer and contains detailed instructions on how to set up and operate the printer. It includes step-by-step procedures, troubleshooting tips, and guidelines for maintenance. The manual is specifically designed to assist users in correctly installing, resetting, and uninstalling the printer by providing clear instructions and illustrations. Organizational policy, on the other hand, typically focuses on broader guidelines and rules related to printer usage within an organization, rather than specific installation or troubleshooting instructions.
