I asked this question today needing input. Some thought I was right. Just

needing someone else to give their advice.

A __________ is an integral part of the computer hardware,which connects the processor to the hardware.

1 hard drive

2 CPU

3 byte

4 motherboard

I am thinking the correct answer is the motherboard. Am I right?

Hmmm.

I'm torn between 2 and 4.

??

I've asked other teachers to chime in on this question.

=)

Motherboard connects the processor to all peripherals

So, I am right? Is the motherboard the

right answer?

Please re-read Bobpursley's answer. It's very clear!

And just to clarify why it is not #2, the CPU *IS* the processor.
