Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    On the motherboard there are lines going to everywhere what are they?(Hint: they are also called infomation higway)

    • A.

      CMOS

    • B.

      Flux Capacitors

    • C.

      Buses

    • D.

      RIMM

    Correct Answer
    C. Buses
    Explanation
    Buses are the lines on the motherboard that connect various components and allow them to communicate with each other. They serve as the information highway, enabling the transfer of data between the CPU, memory, and other devices such as graphics cards and storage drives. Without buses, the different components on the motherboard would not be able to exchange information efficiently, hindering the overall performance of the system.

    It is know as the brain of a computer what is it?

    • A.

      CPU

    • B.

      CMOS

    • C.

      Buses

    • D.

      Hard drive

    Correct Answer
    A. CPU
    Explanation
    The CPU, or Central Processing Unit, is often referred to as the brain of a computer. It is responsible for executing instructions and performing calculations, making it a crucial component of any computer system. The CPU is responsible for processing and interpreting data, coordinating the activities of other hardware components, and executing software instructions. Without a CPU, a computer would not be able to perform any tasks or functions. Therefore, the CPU is correctly identified as the brain of a computer.

    On the back of a hard drive there are these pins that determin the settings of the hard drive what are they called?

    • A.

      Pins

    • B.

      RAM

    • C.

      ROM

    • D.

      Jumpers

    Correct Answer
    D. Jumpers
    Explanation
    Jumpers are small pins on the back of a hard drive that determine its settings. These settings can include things like the drive's capacity, data transfer mode, or whether it is the master or slave drive in a system. By placing a small plastic cap, or jumper, on specific pins, the user can configure the hard drive according to their needs. This allows for customization and flexibility in setting up the hard drive to work properly with the rest of the computer system.

    What is the name of the power connector that powers the hard drive?

    • A.

      RAM

    • B.

      ROM

    • C.

      Mulex

    • D.

      P1 Connector

    Correct Answer
    C. Mulex
    Explanation
    Mulex is the name of the power connector that powers the hard drive. This connector is specifically designed to provide power to the hard drive, allowing it to function properly. The other options, RAM and ROM, are types of computer memory and not related to the power supply. P1 Connector is a generic term and does not specifically refer to the power connector for hard drives.

     RAM is voltile. True or false?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    RAM stands for Random Access Memory, which is a type of computer memory that is volatile. Volatile means that the data stored in RAM is temporary and is lost when the computer is turned off or restarted. This is in contrast to non-volatile memory, such as hard drives or solid-state drives, which retain data even when the power is turned off. Therefore, the statement "RAM is volatile" is true.

  • 6. 

    ROM is Volitlie. True or False?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given answer is false. ROM (Read-Only Memory) is non-volatile, meaning that it retains its data even when the power is turned off. Unlike volatile memory such as RAM, ROM is designed to store permanent data that cannot be modified or erased easily. Therefore, the statement that ROM is volatile is incorrect.

    What can you do to prevent ESD? Select more than one.

    • A.

      Ground yourself with an anti-static braclet.

    • B.

      Grab the case of the computer.

    • C.

      Touch the power supply to discharge the Eletricity.

    • D.

      Touch the hard drive.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Ground yourself with an anti-static braclet.
    B. Grab the case of the computer.
    Explanation
    To prevent ESD (Electrostatic Discharge), it is recommended to ground yourself with an anti-static bracelet and grab the case of the computer. Grounding yourself with an anti-static bracelet helps to equalize the electrical potential between your body and the computer, preventing any sudden discharge. Grabbing the case of the computer also helps in dissipating any static charge that might have built up on your body. By doing both of these actions, you can minimize the risk of ESD and protect the computer components from potential damage.

    If you are to get hurt what should you do?

    • A.

      Just walk it off

    • B.

      Report the incident to the instructor

    • C.

      Tell stewart

    • D.

      Ignore it

    Correct Answer
    B. Report the incident to the instructor
    Explanation
    In case of getting hurt, it is important to report the incident to the instructor. This is necessary to ensure that appropriate medical attention or assistance can be provided if needed. Reporting the incident also helps in documenting the occurrence, which may be required for insurance or legal purposes. Ignoring the injury can lead to further complications or delays in receiving necessary treatment. Telling Stewart or just walking it off may not be sufficient or appropriate actions in such situations.

      Extra Card slots

    • D.

      Daughter card

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Riser card
    D. Daughter card
    Explanation
    A riser card is a card that attaches to the motherboard and allows for the installation of additional expansion cards. It enables the expansion cards to be positioned vertically, providing more space and flexibility for adding extra components to the system. A daughter card, on the other hand, is a circuit board that connects to the mainboard to provide additional functionality or features. Both riser cards and daughter cards serve the purpose of expanding the capabilities of the motherboard by supporting more expansion cards or providing additional functionality.
