    Explanation
    A monitor is not considered an input device because it is an output device. It is used to display information generated by the computer or other devices. Input devices, on the other hand, are used to provide data or instructions to the computer. Keyboard, mouse, microphone, and webcam are all examples of input devices as they allow the user to input data or commands into the computer system.

    The Hard disk:

    • A.

      Processes information

    • B.

      Stores information

    • C.

      Temporarily stores information

    • D.

      Shows whats in the computer on the monitor

    • E.

      Plays sound

    Correct Answer
    B. Stores information
    Explanation
    The hard disk is a storage device that stores information in a computer system. It is a non-volatile memory, meaning it retains data even when the computer is turned off. Unlike temporary storage devices like RAM, the hard disk provides long-term storage for files, programs, and operating systems. It is responsible for storing the operating system, software applications, user data, and other files. Therefore, the answer "Stores information" accurately describes the function of a hard disk.

      Temporarily stores information

    • D.

      Shows whats in the computer on the monitor

    • E.

      Plays sound

    Correct Answer
    A. Processes information
    Explanation
    The CPU, or Central Processing Unit, is responsible for processing information in a computer system. It performs calculations, executes instructions, and manages data flow between different components. It is considered the brain of the computer, as it controls and coordinates all the operations. While the CPU may interact with other components to store or temporarily store information, its primary function is to process the data and perform the necessary operations.

    RAM:

    • A.

      Processes information

    • B.

      Stores information

    • C.

      Temporarily stores information

    • D.

      Shows whats in the computer on the monitor

    • E.

      Plays sound

    Correct Answer
    C. Temporarily stores information
    Explanation
    RAM stands for Random Access Memory and it is a type of computer memory that is used to temporarily store information. Unlike permanent storage such as hard drives, RAM is volatile and its contents are lost when the computer is powered off. When a computer is running, the operating system and software programs are loaded into RAM, allowing the CPU to quickly access and process the data. This temporary storage allows for faster data retrieval and execution, improving the overall performance of the computer. Therefore, the statement "Temporarily stores information" accurately describes the function of RAM.

    The computer reads using:

    • A.

      Decimal code

    • B.

      Magic code

    • C.

      Magnetic code

    • D.

      Binary code

    • E.

      The alphabet

    Correct Answer
    D. Binary code
    Explanation
    The computer reads using binary code, which is a system of representing data using only two digits, 0 and 1. This is because computers are built using electronic circuits that can only understand and process these two states. Each binary digit, or bit, represents a single unit of information, and a combination of bits can be used to represent numbers, characters, and other types of data. Therefore, binary code is the fundamental language that computers use to communicate and process information.

    The hard disk reads data:

    • A.

      Using a laser

    • B.

      With glasses

    • C.

      Magnetically

    • D.

      Feeling bumps and grooves

    • E.

      Using light

    Correct Answer
    C. Magnetically
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Magnetically" because hard disks use magnetism to read and write data. Inside a hard disk, there are small magnetic particles on the surface of the platters. These particles are arranged in a pattern of bumps and grooves, representing the binary data. When the hard disk reads data, a read/write head hovers just above the surface of the platter and detects the changes in the magnetic field caused by the bumps and grooves. This magnetic information is then converted into electrical signals that can be processed by the computer.
