  1. Minix

  2. Windows

  3. System V

  4. Vunix


Correct Option: A
Explanation:

To solve this question, the user needs to know about the history and design of the Linux operating system.

Linux was designed to "resemble somewhat" the Minix operating system.

Option A: Minix is the correct answer, as Linux was designed in part to be a free alternative to Minix, a Unix-like operating system developed by Andrew S. Tanenbaum.

Option B: Windows is incorrect because Linux was not designed to resemble Windows. Windows is a proprietary operating system created by Microsoft, whereas Linux is an open-source operating system.

Option C: System V is incorrect because Linux was not designed to resemble System V. System V is a commercial version of Unix developed by AT&T.

Option D: Vunix is incorrect because there is no such thing as Vunix. It is possible that this option meant to refer to Unix, which was certainly an inspiration for Linux, but it is not the answer to the question as worded.

Therefore, the answer is: A. Minix

AI Explanation

To answer this question, you need to understand how to force Windows to boot into Safe Mode. Let's go through each option to understand why it is correct or incorrect:

Option A) DXDIAG - This option is incorrect because DXDIAG is a tool used to diagnose DirectX issues, not to force Windows to boot into Safe Mode.

Option B) MSINFO - This option is incorrect because MSINFO (also known as System Information) is a tool used to display detailed information about the hardware and software components of a computer, not to force Windows to boot into Safe Mode.

Option C) MSCONFIG - This option is correct because MSCONFIG (Microsoft System Configuration) is a tool that allows you to modify various startup settings in Windows, including booting into Safe Mode. By using MSCONFIG, you can select the Safe Boot option to force Windows to boot into Safe Mode.
