Computer Input/Output, Hardware and Software Quiz

Published on Monday, November 03, 2014
Computer Input, Output, Hardware and Software are probably the most basic…most widely and frequently read chapters – why? Because they come in the beginning of any computer information book, that’s why!

I myself have always managed to read these three chapters over and over again, even though I’ve never read a book till its very end…sometimes even left it half way through!

But the importance of these chapters cannot be undermined; you are sure to get a question or two from these chapters
in every exam that has questions on computer. These days even SSC sneaks in questions on computer!

I hope you all are doing your revisions and practices or even studies rigorously; IBPS PO maybe over, but SBI Associates (which I consider as the backdoor entrance into SBI!) and IBPS Clerical are still there.

Which brings us back to computers and you should be prepared to get those 5-6 marks in your kitty for sure.

So, instead of boring you with theory – lets learn/revise/test ourselves and see where we stand via a quiz!

Same can be expected for the upcoming bank exams as well, where there is no separate Computer section.
