Q2. In a 14″ TV or computer monitor, the dimension of 14″ stands for

Q23. To read a CD-ROM disc, you need a

(a) laser beam
(b) magnetic needle
(c) sound card
(d) graphics card
Ans: (a) Data is stored on the disc as a series of microscopic indentations. A laser is shone onto the reflective surface of the disc to read the pattern of pits and lands. Because the depth of the pits is approximately one-quarter to one-sixth of the wavelength of the laser light used to read the disc, the reflected beam’s phase is shifted in relation to the incoming beam, causing destructive interference and reducing the reflected beam’s intensity. This pattern of changing intensity of the reflected beam is converted into binary data.
