Q1. Roles of sound card in modern computer and interfaces available for sound cards.


Sound cards it’s an internal card which is expandable and provides input and output audio

Q3. Describe how LCD relies on a backlight which can either be a cold cathode fluorescent
lamp (CCFL) or the newer light emitting diode (LED) technology
Cold cathode it’s a cathode that is not electrically heated by a filament. If it emits more electrons
than supplied then it’s referred to as cold. A hot cathode is heated by electric current passed
through the filament.
Backlight it’s kind of illumination used in LCDs because LCD are unable to produce light by
themselves. For this reason they need special light source to produce images which can be seen.
Backlights are used illuminates the back.
