Answers:

Ans1.(b)
Super Computers are also known as number crunchers. A super computer's dominant characteristic is its ability to perform large amounts of numerical computations quickly.

Ans2.(a)
SAGA-220 is a supercomputer built by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

Ans3. (d)
6.22 specifies its version.

Ans4. (c)
Copy and X Copy both can be used to copy file or group of files.

Ans5. (c)
10 and 500 are valid minimum & maximum zoom sizes in MS word.

Ans6. (a)
In the PC bootup sequence, the first sector of the boot disk is loaded into memory and executed. If this is the DOS boot sector, it loads the first three sectors of IO.SYS into memory and transfers control to it. IO.SYS then: loads the rest of itself into memory-initializes each default device driver -loads the DOS kernel and calls its initialization routine. The kernel is stored in MSDOS.SYS- processes the MSDOS.SYS- processes the CONFIG.SYS file- loads COMMAND.COM- displays the bootsplash in Windows

Ans7.(b)
Dragging is the gesture of Holding the mouse button down while moving an object of text or image or any file or its part.

Ans8.(a)
BIOS (basic input/output system) is the program a personal computer's microprocessor uses to get the computer system started after you turn it on. It also manages data flow between the computer's operating system and attached devices such as the hard disk, video adapter, keyboard, mouse and printer.

An9s.(c)
Subject line in short describes content of an e-mail.

Ans10.(d)
Drop Down menu is also called drop down list or pull down list.
