Correct Answer - Option 3 : Network interface Card
A network interface card (NIC) is a hardware component, typically a circuit board or chip, which is installed on a computer so it can connect to a network. A NIC provides a computer with a dedicated, full-time connection to a network.
Modern NICs provide the functionality to computers such as,
- support for I/O interrupt,
- direct memory access (DMA) interfaces,
- data transmission,
- network traffic engineering and partitioning.
Hence the correct answer is Network Interface Card.
