Correct Answer - Option 2 : Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory

The correct answer is Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory.

  • EEPROM Stands for  Electrically Erasable programmable read-only memory. Hence option 2 is correct.
  • EPROM is fully erasable programmable read-only memory, a type of computer memory that does not lose its content when the power supply is cut off and that can be erased and reused.
  • The main difference between EPROM and EEPROM is that the content of EPROM is erased by using UV rays.
  • On the other hand, the content of EEPROM is erased by using electric signals.  In EPROM, UV light is used to erase the EPROM's content. In EEPROM, an electric signal is used to erase the EEPROM's contents.

  • In a device, there are primarily two kinds of memory which are ROM and RAM.
  • Read-only memory (ROM) is categorized into different types like PROM, EPROM, EEPROM.
  • The full form of PROM is Programmable Read-Only Memory.
  • The full form of EPROM is Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory.
  • The full form of EEPROM is Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory.
