Comp. question

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
3 byte
4 motherboard

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


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.
