    Correct Answer
    A. A switch with ethernet cables (RJ45)
    Explanation
    The correct answer is a switch with ethernet cables (RJ45) because ethernet cables (RJ45) are used to connect computers to a switch, allowing them to communicate with each other within a local area network. The other options mentioned, such as a modem-router with ethernet cables (RJ45), a switch with a telephone cable (RJ11), or a modem-router wirelessly, do not provide the necessary connectivity for desktop PCs to be connected together.

    So I have all my digital devices connected to the ________

    Correct Answer
    router
    Explanation
    The given answer "router" is correct because a router is a device that connects multiple devices to a network. It acts as a central hub, allowing devices such as computers, smartphones, and tablets to connect to the internet or communicate with each other within a local network. By connecting all digital devices to a router, they can share resources, access the internet, and communicate with each other seamlessly.

    The modem-router is connected to the telephone line with a telephone cable (RJ11)/optic fiber cable. This is because the telephone line is the primary means of connection for the modem-router, and a telephone cable (RJ11) or optic fiber cable is typically used to establish this connection. The other options, such as using an ethernet cable (RJ45) or HDMI cable, are not commonly used for connecting a modem-router to a telephone line.

    A browser is a program that allows users to access and view web pages on the internet.

    Finally, if the program (a browser) running on my laptop is the client, the server is the program running in the webserver (PHP, a programming language). So the communication between the client (us) and the Internet (the server) is using

    Correct Answer
    software
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given answer is that the communication between the client (the program running on the laptop) and the server (the program running in the webserver) is facilitated by software. This software could be a web browser, such as Chrome or Firefox, which allows the client to send requests to the server and receive responses. Additionally, the server-side software, such as PHP, processes these requests and generates the appropriate responses to be sent back to the client. Overall, software plays a crucial role in enabling communication between the client and the server in this scenario.
