 State Two differences between

(a) random access memory and read only memory
(b) hard disk and pen drive;
(c) file and folder

(a) random access memory and read only memory :
ROM can hold data without power and RAM cannot. Essentially, ROM is meant for permanent storage, and RAM is for temporary storage.
A ROM chip is used primarily in the startup process of a computer, whereas a RAM chip is used in the normal operations of a computer once the operating system is loaded.
RAM operates faster than ROM.

(b) hard disk and pen drive;

Hard disks have mechanical rotating parts (a disk actually) which spins inside it when in use whilst a pendrive has a flash memory (built into a chip) and doesn’t have a rotating part.

Hard disks have larger storage capacites than pendrives

Pendrives are easy to transport and use while hard disks are not portable.

Double click is most commonly used with a computer mouse when the pointer is placed over an icon or object and the button is quickly pressed twice.
