  17. 17. BASIC COMPUTER OPERATIONS A computer performs basically five major operations or functions irrespective of their size and make. These are 1) it accepts data or instructions by way of input, 2) it stores data, 3) it can process data as required by the user, 4) it gives results in the form of output, and 5) it controls all operations inside a computer. We discuss below each of these operations.
  18. 18. 1. Input: This is the process of entering data and programs in to the computer system. 2. Storage: The process of saving data and instructions permanently is known as storage 3. Processing: The task of performing operations like arithmetic and logical operations is called processing. 4. Output: This is the process of producing results from the data for getting useful information. 5. Control: The manner how instructions are executed and the above operations are performed.
