Expert Solution
To determine

The three types of memory used in the computer system.

Answer to Problem 1RQ

The three types of memory used in the computer system are given as follows:

1. RAM (Random Access Memory)

2. ROM (Read-Only Memory)

3. Flash memory

Explanation of Solution

The three types of memory used in the computer system are given as follows:

1. RAM (Random Access Memory): Random access memory is the form of computer memory in which the changes can be done either by reading it alone or by writing in it. All the things created by us is saved in RAM.

2. ROM (Read-Only Memory): In this type of memory, the computer can read from ROM, but the changes can’t be done. ROM is the permanent memory. This chip contains special instruction for the system that never changes. Read-Only Memory chips are not used only on the computer but also in other electronic devices like a microwave oven and washing machine.

3. Flash memory: This is used to retain data in the absence of a power supply. It is a type of computer memory that behaves like both RAM and ROM.

Conclusion:

Thus, the three types of memory used in the computer system are given as follows:

1. RAM (Random Access Memory)

2. ROM (Read-Only Memory)

3. Flash memory
