Introduction to IT


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Talking to potential users about their needs is which stage of system development?

    • A.

      Programming

    • B.

      Testing

    • C.

      Research

    • D.

      Analysis

    Correct Answer
    C. Research
    Explanation
    Research is the stage of system development where the focus is on gathering information and understanding the needs and requirements of potential users. This involves conducting interviews, surveys, and other methods to collect data and analyze it. By talking to potential users about their needs, developers can gain insights and make informed decisions during the development process. This stage helps in identifying the problem, defining goals, and determining the scope of the system. It is an essential step to ensure that the final system meets the needs and expectations of the users.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    You are working in systems development and you have developed a programmable solution to the user’s problem. That solution now be:

    • A.

      Implemented immediately.

    • B.

      Researched further.

    • C.

      Tested in the user’s actual environment.

    • D.

      Testes in a dummy scenario before being implemented.

    Correct Answer
    D. Testes in a dummy scenario before being implemented.
    Explanation
    The solution should be tested in a dummy scenario before being implemented. This is important to ensure that the solution functions correctly and does not cause any issues or errors in the user's actual environment. By testing it in a dummy scenario first, any potential problems or bugs can be identified and resolved before implementing the solution for the user. This helps to minimize any potential negative impact on the user's system and ensures a smoother implementation process.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    What does the abbreviation POST mean in the content of system software?

    • A.

      Pre-operational System Test.

    • B.

      Power-On Self-Test.

    • C.

      Preconfigured Operating System Test

    • D.

      Power Operation System Token

    Correct Answer
    B. Power-On Self-Test.
    Explanation
    The abbreviation POST stands for Power-On Self-Test. This is a diagnostic test that is performed by a computer or other electronic device when it is first powered on. The purpose of the POST is to check the hardware components of the system to ensure they are functioning correctly. This includes checking the processor, memory, and other essential components. The results of the POST are usually displayed on the screen or indicated by a series of beeps. By performing this test, the system can detect any hardware issues and alert the user if there are any problems that need to be addressed.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The operating system loads the moment the computer is switched on.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The operating system does not load the moment the computer is switched on. When a computer is switched on, the first program that runs is the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), which performs a series of tests and checks the hardware components. After that, the BIOS searches for the boot loader, which is responsible for loading the operating system from the storage device (such as a hard drive or SSD) into the computer's memory. Only after the boot loader successfully loads the operating system, it starts running and becomes fully functional. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    What is the difference between a software upgrade and a service pack?

    • A.

      A.Software update is an update to software, whereas a service pack is an update to hardware.

    • B.

      A software update is downloaded and installed automatically whereas services packs are provided by IT-support and installed manually.

    • C.

      A software update happens at the same time every month, whereas a service pack happens regularly

    • D.

      A software update is applied to a single piece of software whereas a service pack is applied to an entire operating system.

    Correct Answer
    D. A software update is applied to a single piece of software whereas a service pack is applied to an entire operating system.
    Explanation
    A software update refers to an update that is specifically applied to a single piece of software, such as an application or program. On the other hand, a service pack is an update that is applied to an entire operating system. This means that a service pack includes updates and improvements for multiple software components within the operating system. Therefore, the main difference between a software upgrade and a service pack is the scope of the update, with a software update being focused on a single piece of software and a service pack being focused on the entire operating system.

Operating systems are software that manage computer hardware and software resources and provide common services for computer programs. Microsoft Vista is specifically designed to provide an interface between the user and the computer hardware, allowing users to interact with the computer and run various applications and programs.

    Correct Answer
    D. To provide a way in which the user can monitor and control the activities currently running on Windows
    Explanation
    The purpose of the Windows Task Manager is to provide a way for the user to monitor and control the activities currently running on Windows. It allows users to view and manage processes, monitor system performance, and end unresponsive applications. The Task Manager provides valuable information about the CPU, memory, disk, and network usage, helping users identify any issues or bottlenecks. It is a useful tool for troubleshooting and optimizing system performance.

  • 8. 

    USB Flash can be used to transfer data from any computer to any other computer regardless of how old either computer is?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    USB flash drives can be used to transfer data from one computer to another, regardless of how old either computer is. This statement is true because USB flash drives are compatible with most computers and operating systems. They use a standard USB connection, which is widely supported. Therefore, as long as the computers have USB ports, the data can be easily transferred using a USB flash drive.

    What is the main function of the BIOS?

    • A.

      To conduct a “power-on self-test”

    • B.

      To manage non-responding programs

      To fix any problem that may occur

    • D.

      To start the process of loading the operating system.

    Correct Answer
    D. To start the process of loading the operating system.
    Explanation
    The main function of the BIOS is to start the process of loading the operating system. It is responsible for initializing and configuring hardware components, performing a power-on self-test to ensure all hardware is functioning correctly, and then handing control over to the operating system. The BIOS is the first software that runs when a computer is powered on, and it plays a crucial role in the booting process.
