Which of the following is not a form of memory?
(A) instruction cache
(B) instruction register

Instruction Opcode – It is the portion of a machine language instruction that specifies the operation to be performed

Translation Lookaside Buffer – It is a memory cache that stores recent translations of virtual memory to physical addresses for faster access.
