    DSL stands for:

    • A.

      Direct Status Line

    • B.

      Dual Sim Line

    • C.

      Digital Subscriber Line

    • D.

DSL technology allows users to access the internet while making phone calls simultaneously, as it separates voice and data signals. Therefore, Digital Subscriber Line is the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    ADSL has

    • A.

      Higher downstream speed (into the end user) than upstream speed (away from the end user).

    • B.

      Lower downstream speed (into the end user) than upstream speed (away from the end user).

    • C.

      Dial Up connection speed

    • D.

      Equal Downstream speed and upstream Speed

    Correct Answer
    A. Higher downstream speed (into the end user) than upstream speed (away from the end user).
    Explanation
    ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) is a type of internet connection that provides higher downstream speed (from the internet to the end user) compared to the upstream speed (from the end user to the internet). This means that the user can download data, stream videos, and browse the internet faster than they can upload data or send information. The asymmetry in speed is designed to cater to the typical internet usage patterns where users tend to consume more data than they produce.

    • A.

      Anti Firewall

    • B.

      Anti Water

    • C.

    • D.

      None of the Above

    Correct Answer
    D. None of the Above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is None of the Above. The relationship between virus and antivirus, and spyware and antispyware, is that the latter is designed to detect and remove the former. However, a firewall is not an "anti" technology like antivirus or antispyware. A firewall is a network security device that monitors and controls incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules. It acts as a barrier between a trusted internal network and an untrusted external network, preventing unauthorized access and protecting against network attacks. Therefore, the relationship between firewall and its counterpart is not based on "anti" but rather on network security.
