The CPU is the central processing unit and is responsible for executing instructions, but it does not directly interact with the disk. The monitor and keyboard are input/output devices that allow the user to interact with the computer, but they do not handle data storage. Therefore, disk drives are the most appropriate choice for reading and writing data to a disk.
