Why was ON
not listed a potential candidates?
In machine language, the binary (base 1) counting system is used as ON. For example; if a latch is open, it's OFF. The same could be said, where processors (CPU's) are concerned. In fact, a CPU is not unlike a light switch. In the same way that the speed by which you can turn the light(s) on, and off, is the frequency of that cycle. So it is with the CPU -- the Frequency is determined by how fast the CPU cycles. So in essence; the CPU is no more than a light switch. So it is, where the binary/base-1 numbering/counting system is.
In conclusion; it is my assertion that the correct answer would have been "none of the above". As a result, I couldn't vote.
