Correct Answer - Option 2 : Third Generation

The correct answer is Third Generation.

  • This generation was introduced by the development of a small chip consisting of the capacity of the 300 transistors
  • These Integrated Circuits (IC)s are popularly known as IC Chips.
  • So it is quite obvious that the size of the computer got further reduced
  • Some of the computers developed during this period were IBM-360, ICL-1900, IBM-370, and VAX-750
  • Higher-level language such as BASIC (Beginners All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) was developed during this period

Generation Duration Electronic Component Used
First Generation Computers 1946 - 1954 Vacuum Tubes
Second Generation Computer 1955 - 1964 Transistors
Third Generation Computer 1964 - 1977 Integrated Circuits
Fourth Generation Computer 1978 - Present VLSI or Microprocessors
Fifth Generation Computer Present and Future ULSI or Bio-Chips
