Operating Systems | Memory Management | Question 10
Increasing the RAM of a computer typically improves performance because:
(A) Virtual memory increases
(B) Larger RAMs are faster
(C) Fewer page faults occur
(D) Fewer segmentation faults occur
Explanation: When there is more RAM, there would be more mapped virtual pages in physical memory, hence fewer page faults. A page fault causes performance degradation as the page has to be loaded from secondary device.
