      10

    • D.

      14

    Correct Answer
    A. 11
    Explanation
    The number 1011 is equivalent to 11 because it is written in binary form. In binary, each digit can only be 0 or 1, and the value of each digit is determined by its position. Starting from the rightmost digit, the positions are 2^0, 2^1, 2^2, and so on. So, in this case, 1*2^0 + 1*2^1 + 0*2^2 + 1*2^3 equals 11.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    The computer hardware only understands machine language.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Computer hardware is designed to understand and execute instructions written in machine language, which is a low-level programming language consisting of binary code. Machine language is the only language that the hardware directly understands and can execute. Other high-level programming languages like C++, Java, or Python need to be translated into machine language before they can be executed by the hardware. Therefore, the statement "The computer hardware only understands machine language" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Program written in high level language is called object code.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is incorrect. A program written in a high-level language is not called object code. Object code refers to the compiled form of a program written in a low-level language, such as assembly language or machine code. High-level languages are used to write source code, which is then compiled or interpreted to generate object code or executable files. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Compiler and Interpreter are same.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Compiler and Interpreter are not the same. They are two different types of language translators. A compiler takes the entire program and converts it into machine code all at once, creating an executable file. On the other hand, an interpreter translates the program line by line, executing it directly without creating an executable file.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Set of rules are called syntax.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In computer programming, a set of rules that define the structure and organization of a program is called syntax. These rules determine how statements and expressions should be written in order for the program to be considered valid and executable. Therefore, the statement "Set of rules are called syntax" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    C, C++, C# are examples of assembly language.

    • A.

      True

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because tablets and smartphones are not the same. While both are portable devices that can be used for various tasks, tablets typically have larger screens and are designed for more productivity-oriented tasks, such as reading, writing, and editing documents. Smartphones, on the other hand, are smaller and more focused on communication and convenience, with features like calling, texting, and mobile apps. Therefore, there is a clear difference between tablets and smartphones.
