5. The origin of internet can be tracked from

A) ARPAnet
B) Radio networks
C) Satellite networks
D) Indian army networks
E) Air force networks
Correct answer: A

Solution :
ARPANET was the network that became the basis for the Internet. Based on a concept first published in 1967, ARPANET was developed under the direction of the U.S. Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA). In 1969, the idea became a modest reality with the interconnection of four university computers. The initial purpose was to communicate with and share computer resources among mainly scientific users at the connected institutions. ARPANET took advantage of the new idea of sending information in small units called packets that could be routed on different paths and reconstructed at their destination. The development of the TCP/IP protocols in the 1970s made it possible to expand the size of the network, which now had become a network of networks, in an orderly way.

Solution :
In a computer file system, and primarily used in the Unix and Unix-like operating systems, the root directory is the first or top-most directory in a hierarchy. It can be likened to the trunk of a tree, as the starting point where all branches originate from.

9. The physical arrangement of elements on a page is referred to as a document’s

A) features
B) format

D) grid
E) none of these
Correct answer: B

Solution :
The term “format” can also be used to describe the page layout or style of text in a word processing document. When you format the layout of a page, you can modify the page size, page margins, and line spacing. When you format the text, you can choose the font and font size, as well as text styles, such as bold, underlined, and italics.

A typical indent is five spaces from the left-hand or right-hand of the page.

30. A ________ is an electronic device that processes data and converts it into information.

A) processor
B) computer
C) case
D) stylus
E) None of these
Correct answer: B

31. ________ function displays row data in a column or column data in a row.

A) Index
B) Rows
C) Hyperlink
D) Transpose
E) Columns
Correct answer: D

Solution :
On a computer, one can often avoid explicitly transposing a matrix in memory by simply accessing the same data in a different order. For example, software libraries for linear algebra, such as BLAS, typically provide options to specify that certain matrices are to be interpreted in transposed order to avoid the necessity of data movement. However, there remain a number of circumstances in which it is necessary or desirable to physically reorder a matrix in memory to its transposed ordering. For example, with a matrix stored in row-major order, the rows of the matrix are contiguous in memory and the columns are discontiguous. If repeated operations need to be performed on the columns, for example in a fast Fourier transform algorithm, transposing the matrix in memory (to make the columns contiguous) may improve performance by increasing memory locality.

32. ‘MICR’ technology used for clearance of cheques by banks refers to

A) Magnetic Ink Character Recognition
B) Magnetic Intelligence Character Recognition
C) Magnetic Information Cable Recognition
D) Magnetic Insurance Cases Recognition
E) None of these
Correct answer: A
Solution :
Magnetic Ink Character Recognition is a character recognition system that uses special ink and characters. When a document that contains this ink needs to be read, it passes through a machine, which magnetizes the ink and then translates the magnetic information into characters. MICR technology is used by banks. Numbers and characters found on the bottom of checks (usually containing the check number, sort number, and account number) are printed using Magnetic Ink. To print Magnetic Ink need, you need a laser printer that accepts MICR toner. MICR provides a secure, high-speed method of scanning and processing information.

A) repository
B) data warehouse
E) None of these
Correct answer: B
Solution :
In computing, a data warehouse (DW or DWH), also known as an enterprise data warehouse (EDW), is a system used for reporting and data analysis, and is considered a core component of business intelligence. DWs are central repositories of integrated data from one or more disparate sources.
