Repeated execution of simple computation may cause compounding of (A) round-off errors (B) syntax errors (C) run-time errors (D) logic errors

Answer: (A)

Explanation: Roundoff error is the difference between an approximation of a number used in computation and its exact (correct) value. In certain types of computation, roundoff error can be magnified as any initial errors are carried through one or more intermediate steps and repeated execution. So, option (A) is correct.
