(e) Newboard
Explanation: A motherboard is one of the most essential parts of a computer system. It holds together many of the crucial components of a computer, including the central processing unit (CPU), memory and connectors for input and output devices.

3. Which of the following is not the classification of computers based on operating principle?
(a) Electronic Computers
(b) Analog Computers
(c) Digital Computers
(d) Hybrid Computers

4. Networking such as LAN, MAN started from which generation of computers?
(a) First generation
(b) Second generation
(c) Third generation
(d) Fourth generation
(e) Fifth generation
Explanation: The continued improvement in fourth generation allowed the networking of computers for the sharing of data. Local Area Network(LAN) and Wide Area Network(WAN), were potential benefits, in that they could be implemented in corporations and everybody could share data over it. Then the internet and World Wide Web appeared on the computer scene and fomented the Hi-Tech revolution of 90's.

5. Which of the following code used in present day computing was developed by IBM Corporation?

(b) A TCP/IP high level protocols for transferring files from one machine to another
(c) a protocol used to monitor computers
(d) a protocol that handles error and control messages
(e) All of the above
Explanation: The address resolution protocol is a protocol used by the Internet Protocol (IP), specifically IPv4, to map IP network addresses to the hardware addresses used by a data link protocol. The protocol operates below the network layer as a part of the interface between the OSI network and OSI link layer.
