Q15. What is the meaning of the term volatile primary memory? What can be done to overcome the problems of volatility?
Ans. The memory of computer is volatile (temporary), it cannot remember anything after it is switched off.
Since computer’s main memory (primary memory) is temporary, secondary memory space is needed to store data and information permanently for later use. Some most common secondary storage media are floppy diskette, the hard disk and CD-RWs etc.
