    B. The memory of the computer
    Explanation
    RAM stands for Random Access Memory, which is a type of computer memory that is used to store data that is currently being used by the computer. It is a volatile memory, meaning that it is temporary and gets erased when the computer is turned off. RAM is responsible for storing and providing quick access to data that the computer needs to perform tasks and run programs. It allows the computer to efficiently retrieve and manipulate data, making it an essential component for the overall performance and speed of the computer.

    What happens to your files when you format a hard drive?

    • A.

      They get backed up

    • B.

      They get Erased

    • C.

      Nothing Happens

    Correct Answer
    B. They get Erased
    Explanation
    When you format a hard drive, all the files stored on it are erased. Formatting a hard drive means that the file system is reinitialized, and any existing data is overwritten or deleted. This process prepares the hard drive to be used again by removing all the previous data and creating a fresh file system. Therefore, formatting a hard drive is not a recommended method of backing up files, as it permanently deletes them.
