    A)  store the information in secondary storage
    B)  optimize the information
    C)  digitize the information
    D)  show the information of the screen
    E)  become an output device also
    View Answer
      Option C

    C)  Sun
    D)  HCL
    E)  None of these
    View Answer
      Option B
    Some Extra:
    NetBIOS (Network Basic Input/Output System) is a program that allows applications on different computers to communicate within a local area network (LAN). It was created by IBM for its early PC Network, was adopted by Microsoft and has since become a de facto industry standard.
  4. Virtual memory allocates hard disk space to supplement the immediate, functional memory capacity of what?

    B)  insufficient hard disk space.
    C)  inaccurate information stored in the registry.
    D)  swapping data between virtual memory and RAM too frequently.
    E)  None of these
    View Answer
      Option D
    Some Extra:
    In computer science, thrashing occurs when a computer’s virtual memory subsystem is in a constant state of paging, rapidly exchanging data in memory for data on disk, to the exclusion of most application-level processing. This causes the performance of the computer to degrade or collapse.
  9. Which of the following ISO level is more closely related to the physical communications facilities?
    A)  Application
    B)  session
    C)  Networking
    D)  Data Link
