Final Answer

RAM random access memory

ROM read only memory

RAM is the memory that is required by the operating system for the computer applications to run when the computer is in use.

ROM is the memory that allows one to store data and contains firmware that comes with the computer. it is where the computer boots from.

RAM requires electricity for it to hold information

ROM holds information even when the computer is not powered on
