In a resident – OS computer, which of the following systems must reside in the main memory under all situations?
(A) Assembler
(B) Linker
(C) Loader
(D) Compiler


Answer: (C)

Explanation: Loader is the part of an operating system that is responsible for loading programs and libraries. It is one of the essential stages in the process of starting a program, as it places programs into memory and prepares them for execution.
Loading a program involves tasks such as reading the contents of the executable file containing the program instructions into memory, and then carrying out other required preparatory tasks to prepare the executable for running.
The operating system starts the program by passing control to the loaded program code once the loading process is completed.

Option (C) is correct.
