Were you correct? This week's answer is:
d. nonvolatile memory
Nonvolatile memory is a general term for all forms of solid state (no moving parts) memory that have a continuous source of power and do not need to have their memory contents periodically refreshed. This includes all forms of read-only memory (ROM) such as programmable read-only memory, erasable programmable read-only memory, electrically erasable programmable read-only memory, and flash memory. It also includes random access memory (RAM) that is powered with a battery.
