  • 8. 

    A ______________ is the part of the communication system that carries information.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "signal, a signal, signals". In a communication system, a signal is the part that carries information. It can be a physical or electrical representation of the information being transmitted. Signals can take various forms, such as sound waves, electromagnetic waves, or digital data. They are essential for conveying messages or data from one point to another in a communication system.

    ______________ is when a signal is translated into a form that the communications system can transmit.

    Explanation
    Encoding is the process of translating a signal into a form that can be transmitted by a communications system. This involves converting the information or data into a specific format or code that can be understood by the receiving end of the communication. An encoder is a device or software that performs the encoding process. "An encoding" is not a specific term and does not accurately describe the process of translating a signal for transmission.

    _______________ is when the electrical signal is converted to a form this is useful to the receiver.

    Explanation
    Decoding refers to the process of converting an electrical signal into a useful form for the receiver. This can involve translating the signal into understandable data or extracting specific information from the signal. Decode is the verb form of decoding, indicating the action of performing the decoding process. A decoder is a device or circuit that is used to carry out the decoding process. Therefore, all three options - decoding, decode, and decoder - are related to the conversion of electrical signals into a useful form for the receiver.

    A computer converts a(n) ____________ signal into binary code, or a digital signal of ones and zeros.

    Explanation
    A computer converts an analog signal into binary code, or a digital signal of ones and zeros. This conversion allows the computer to process and manipulate the data in a format that it can understand and work with. An analog signal is a continuous signal that represents information in a continuous manner, while a digital signal represents information using discrete values. By converting the analog signal into binary code, the computer can accurately interpret and process the information.
