Answer : B)  A-2 B-1 C-3 D-4
(A) DMA I/O (2) Disk
(B) Cache (1) High-speed RAM
(C) Interrupt I/O (3) Printer
(D) Condition Code Register (4) ALU

Reason :

  • DMA I/O - For high speed, high volume data transfer from disk without affecting the processor(in most cases).
  • Cache-A high speed & low memory version of a RAM.
  • Interrupt I/O - The printer sends an interrupt signal when it is ready for use.
  • Condition Code Register - Part of the ALU, as a special purpose register, to store flag bits.

Answer: B

Condition code register containing conditional flags like OVERFLOW,CARRY,SIGN,ZERO will be modified only if our instructions needs ALU cycle ... EX : ADD R1,R2,R3 needs ALU cycle whereas LOAD R1,A doesnot need ALU cycle ...

ans is B.

because cache is high speed ram, not a printer so option B is correct.
