Basics of Microprocessors,Post and Bios Online Test

The device that the infrared port communicates with must have a corresponding ------------port.
Infrared port
Parallel port
Serial port
USB port
The--------------------- on a motherboard is a group of integrated circuits and microprocessors.
chipset
bridge
Connectors
Extension slots
If you have a printer that has an infrared port, it can communicate with your laptop without cables. You can print documents by placing the printer and laptop opposite each other, with their infrared ports facing each other. However, the two communicating devices must be within ---------------of each other and the path between them must be clear of any intrusions.

When we start the PC, the Basic Input Output System (BIOS) runs a test to check if all the peripheral devices, memory and hardware of the PC are working properly This test is called the -----------------. The PC will boot only if the results of the test are positive. If any of the above components of the PC are not in proper condition, the PC will give some warning signals like beeps. In some cases, if the problem is serious, the PC will not boot at all.
Power test
Power On Self Test (POST)
Self test
BIOS test
The POST happens as soon as the PC starts and before most of the components of the PC start. The errors that cause the system to stop booting are of two types – fatal and non-fatal. In case of fatal errors, ---------------------.
The boot process stops immediately.
The boot process doses not stop
The boot process will be continued after POST again
None of the above
The POST checks -----------------------------..
PC memory
PC memory and peripheral devices.
PC memory, configuration and peripheral devices.
None of the above
One of the key elements of the microprocessor is its speed. The speed of the microprocessor depends on various factors such as-----------------------------------------. The bandwidth specifies the number of binary digits that the microprocessor can process in a single instruction. The clock speed specifies the speed at which the microprocessor processes an instruction.The speed of the microprocessor also depends on the number of the transistors built into the processor. The transistors in the microprocessor boost the data signals on the processor. The more the transistors built on the microprocessor the faster is the speed of the microprocessor. The advancements in technology have reduced the size of the transistors and have increased the processing speed of the processor. Microprocessors may also have a cache to store information. The microprocessor can access information faster from the cache than from the RAM.
the number of instructions it processes
the bandwidth
the clock speed
the number of instructions it processes, the bandwidth, and the clock speed. The speed of the microprocessor also depends on the number of the transistors built into the processor.
The bandwidth specifies the --------------------------------------.
the number of binary digits that the microprocessor can process in a single instruction.
the speed at which the microprocessor processes an instruction
The speed at which computer operates
None of the above
The clock speed specifies --------------------
The speed
the speed at which the microprocessor processes an instruction
Speed of the clock
None of the above
Microprocessors may also have a cache to store information. The purpose of CACHE is ----------.
The microprocessor can access information faster from the cache than from the RAM. It is placed in between processor and RAM.
To store intermediate result
To store data permanently
None of the above
Overclocking the microprocessor -----------the speed of the processor.
decreases
Increases
No change
None of the above
To upgrade a microprocessor, we replace the microprocessor in the system with a -----------------microprocessor.
The same size
a new and worse
a old and better

Intel Itanium is----------------------- that powers network servers and workstations.
an CISC microprocessor
an RISC microprocessor
an RISC & CISC microprocessor
None of the above
The ---------------determines the functionality of a motherboard
chipset
processor
I/O devices
None of the above
The---------------- utility is used for performing a set of management tasks such as creating and deleting partitions, converting file systems, and assigning drive letters.
Disk Management
Partition magic
Disk defragmenter
None of the above
A logical portion of a hard disk that functions as a separate unit of storage is known as a ----------------.

-------------------is a system utility that enables us to create and resize the drives with out loss of information. _ Using this utility you can perform the following tasks : _ Creating a partition _ Formatting a partition _ Resizing a partition _ Converting NTFS to FAT _ Splitting a partition _ Merging a partition _ Undeleting a partition _ Copying a partition
Disk defragmenter
Disk Management
Partition Magic
None of the above
