Computer Network is ____
a. Local area network (LAN)
b. Wide area network (WAN)
d. All of these
Answer: (d) A computer network is a system in which two or more computers are connected using cable or wireless technology to send and receive data for the purpose of communication.
What is Computer Network?
A computer network is a group of computers connected together in a local area network or wide area network. In a computer network, computers can share resources such as printers and scanners. They also share internet connections and communication links with each other.
What is a LAN?
LAN stands for Local Area Network. It is a small area of the internet that covers only a few buildings or rooms. In LAN, all computers are connected to each other using cables (or wires) and they can communicate with each other easily and quickly without any delay in data transfer.
What is WAN?
WAN means Wide Area Network which covers a large geographical area like cities or countries. In this case, we use wireless technologies like Wi-Fi for transferring data from one device to another but still we get some delays during data transfer because this technology does not give us full coverage like wired connections do so there might be some spots where you won’t get good signal strength which might cause a delay in data transfer process between two devices connected through Wi-Fi connection on the same network.
