The answer to this question has to be A: Device Driver.

A device driver is a program that controls a particular type of device that is attached to your computer. There are device drivers for printers, displays, CD-ROM readers, diskette drives, and any other device that is attached to a computer. When you buy an operating system, many device drivers are built into the product. A device driver essentially converts the more general input/output instructions of the operating system to messages that the device type can understand. In other words, a device driver acts as a translator between a hardware device and the applications or operating systems that use it.

It is fairly obvious that this is a question from an exam paper or some coursework question so to help you answer computer related questions in future, here are some tips on how best to research and revise for difficult questions in the future.

Firstly, it is important not to take on too much on at one time.  If you try to take in too much information in one sitting, it won’t stick and you will not remember key information. So take a few minutes break every twenty minutes or whenever your attention starts to wander.

Share notes with other people doing the same course as you. Nowadays it is easy to do this online on study forums or you could simply swap notes with classmates.

Have a revision plan. Keep it simple with daily objectives which are manageable so you don’t feel pressured.

Make the most of resources around you. You are surrounded with help if you need it, in the form of libraries, internet resources and the people who are paid to help you, your tutors.

Stay hydrated. This may sound simple and not really relevant to revising but it is said that most people are dehydrated most of the time without actually knowing it and being dehydrated affects concentration levels.

Good luck with the rest of the questions.
