      USB

    • C.

      Games

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. USB
    C. Games
    Explanation
    USB and Games are not applications because they are not software programs that perform specific tasks or functions on a computer or device. USB refers to a universal serial bus, which is a hardware interface used for connecting devices to a computer. Games, on the other hand, are forms of entertainment or recreational activities that are typically played on a computer or gaming console. While drivers can be considered applications, as they are software programs that enable communication between hardware devices and the operating system.

  • 6. 

    Software only works when there is Hardware

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because software can also work without hardware. Software refers to the programs and applications that are installed on a computer or device, while hardware refers to the physical components of the computer or device. While hardware is necessary for software to run, software can still function on its own without the presence of physical hardware. For example, software can be developed and tested on virtual machines or emulators without the need for physical hardware. Additionally, software can also be stored and executed on cloud servers, eliminating the need for local hardware.
