      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Form factor
    Explanation
    Form factor is the term used to describe the physical characteristics and dimensions of a computer case. It refers to the size, shape, and layout of the case, including the arrangement of components such as motherboard, power supply, and storage devices. Different form factors, such as ATX, microATX, and mini-ITX, have specific specifications and standards that determine the compatibility and functionality of the case with other computer components. Therefore, the correct answer is form factor.

  • 2. 

    AT and ATX are form factors used to describe . . . . .  (1 word)

    Correct Answer
    motherboard
    Explanation
    AT and ATX are form factors used to describe the physical dimensions, layout, and power supply requirements of a motherboard. These form factors determine the size and shape of the motherboard, as well as the placement of components such as the CPU, RAM slots, and expansion slots. The AT form factor was commonly used in older computer systems, while the ATX form factor is now the standard for modern motherboards. It specifies the placement of connectors, power supply, and cooling solutions, allowing for easier installation and better airflow within the computer case.

    What network topology allows for the best protection if one of the computers fails

    • A.

      Mesh

    • B.

      Ring

    • C.

      Star

    Correct Answer
    A. Mesh
    Explanation
    A mesh network topology allows for the best protection if one of the computers fails because it provides multiple paths for data to travel. In a mesh network, each computer is connected to every other computer, creating a redundant network. If one computer fails, the data can still be routed through other paths, ensuring that the network remains operational. This redundancy and fault tolerance make the mesh topology ideal for protecting against single points of failure.

    What can be used to test connections between computers

    • A.

      Ping

    • B.

      ICMP

    • C.

      HTTP

    • D.

      FTP

    Correct Answer
    A. Ping
    Explanation
    Ping is a network utility used to test the connectivity between computers on a network. It sends a small packet of data from one computer to another and measures the time it takes for the packet to reach its destination and return. By receiving a response from the destination computer, it confirms that the connection is active and working properly. Therefore, ping is commonly used to troubleshoot network issues and verify if computers can communicate with each other. ICMP, HTTP, and FTP are protocols used for different purposes and not specifically designed for testing network connections.

    Topology is used to connect a computer to the internet (TRUE or FALSE)

    Correct Answer
    FALSE
    Explanation
    Topology refers to the physical or logical arrangement of devices in a network. It does not directly connect a computer to the internet. To connect a computer to the internet, other components such as a modem, router, and internet service provider are required. Therefore, the statement is false.

    What type of questions must you ask a talkitive customer

    • A.

      How was your day

    • B.

      Close-ended

    • C.

      Open-ended

    • D.

      What colour are your shoes

    Correct Answer
    B. Close-ended
    Explanation
    Close-ended questions are the appropriate type of questions to ask a talkative customer because they require short and specific answers. These questions limit the customer's response to a simple "yes" or "no" or a brief statement, which helps in controlling the conversation and preventing the customer from going off-topic or providing excessive information. This type of questioning is useful when dealing with talkative individuals as it allows for efficient communication and keeps the conversation focused.

    How would you clean the fan in a computer

    • A.

      Compressed air

    • B.

      Soft lint free cloth

    • C.

      Damp tissue

    • D.

      A mop and bucket

    Correct Answer
    A. Compressed air
    Explanation
    To clean the fan in a computer, compressed air is the best option. This is because compressed air can effectively remove dust and debris from the fan without causing any damage. It can reach into small crevices and blow away the dirt, ensuring that the fan operates smoothly and efficiently. Using a soft lint-free cloth or damp tissue may not be as effective in removing all the dust, and using a mop and bucket is not suitable for cleaning delicate computer components.

    What motion must you use when cleaning a disk

    • A.

      From the inside of the disk out

    • B.

    • C.

      Put it in the dish washer

    • D.

      Spit on it

    Correct Answer
    A. From the inside of the disk out
    Explanation
    To clean a disk effectively, you should use a motion from the inside of the disk outwards. This means starting at the center of the disk and moving towards the outer edge. This motion helps to remove dust, dirt, and smudges in a controlled manner, preventing any potential damage to the disk. Cleaning in a circular motion or using a dishwasher or spit can potentially harm the disk's surface and should be avoided.

    DDoS stands for distributed denial of service. This refers to a type of cyber attack where multiple compromised computers are used to flood a target system or network with an overwhelming amount of traffic, causing it to become unavailable to legitimate users. The intention of a DDoS attack is to disrupt the target's operations and make their services inaccessible.
