A Winchester disk is a

A. Disk Stack
B. Removable disk
C. Flexible disk
D. All of the above

Check Answer

The correct answer is A) Disk Stack.

A Winchester disk, also known as a Winchester drive, is a type of hard disk drive that was first introduced by IBM in the 1970s. It gets its name from the Winchester shotgun, as the original IBM engineers who designed the drive thought that the sound of the drive head hitting the disk resembled the sound of a Winchester rifle being cocked.

The Winchester disk uses a disk stack design, with multiple platters stacked on top of each other and a read/write head that moves across the surface of the disks to access data. Unlike removable disks (option B) or flexible disks (option C), Winchester disks are not designed to be removed from the drive enclosure.

Therefore, options B (Removable disk) and C (Flexible disk) are incorrect.
