Short Answer Type Questions
Question 1 What is operating system??
Ans: Operating system is a System-Software. It acts as an interface between computer hardware and computer user.
It also controls the execution of all types of other software in a computer system. Without operating system, it is
impossible to perform any task in computer. DOS, Window, Linux etc. are the examples of most commonly used
Question 2 Write the different types of Operating System.
Ans: Following are the some important types of operating systems:
a. Batch Operating System
b. Time sharing Operating System
c. Distributed Operating System
d. Network Operating System
e. Real Time Operating System
Question3 Explain Real Time Operating System.
Ans: Real time Operating System is also called Data Operating System. In this system, the time difference between
taking input and producing output is very small. Real time operating system is used in those situations when the time
taken by data flow or the processor operation is very complex and fixed.
Question 4 What are the functions of operating system? Write their list.
Ans: Following list shows the most common functions of an operating system:
1. Program Execution
2. To control Input output related operations
3. File Manipulation
5. Error Detection
6. Resource Management
Question 5 What do you mean by Computer Security?
Ans: Computer security is a mechanism using which investigates and restricts the unauthorized usage of our
computer system. Hackers always try to theft our important data over internet using unauthorized ways. So, to
protect our computers from these hackers, we need to have special focus on computer security. So, to protect our
computer system from unauthorized access over internet, we should always use new antivirus software, Anti
spyware software and firewall techniques etc.
