Question 1: Which of the following best defines Scan Conversion in computer graphics?

  1. It is a process of representing graphics objects as a collection of pixels
  2. It is a process of converting colored images to grayscale images.
  3. It is a process of converting handmade drawing to computer pictures through a scanner
  4. None of the above

Answer: a. It is a process of representing graphics objects as a collection of pixels


All the other definitions are wrong as per defining the Scan Conversion in computer graphics.

Question 2: What is the main reason behind developing algorithms for scan conversion?

  1. The algorithms can generate graphics objects at a faster rate here.
  2. Here, the memory can be efficiently used
  3. Both a. and b.
  4. None of the above

Answer: c. Both a. and b.


The algorithms are being developed in the Scan conversion technique because of its faster rate of generation of objects and efficient use of memory.

Question 3: Which among the following objects can be scan converted?

  1. Point, Line, Sector, Arc
  2. Characters
  3. Ellipse, Rectangle, Polygons
  4. All of the above

Answer: d. All of the above


All the mentioned objects can be scan converted. Hence the correct option is: d. All of the above.

Question 4: Stare whether the following statement is true or false
"The term pixel is a short form for Electronic Picture."

  1. True
  2. False

Answer: b. False


The term pixel is not the short form for electronic picture. Rather, it is an abbreviation for 'Picture Element'.

Question 5: Fill in the blank:
"Each pixel has some intensity value which is represented in memory of the computer. This memory part is known as the ____________."

  1. Frame Buffer
  2. Random Access Memory (RAM)
  3. Picture Memory
  4. None of the above

Answer: a. Frame Buffer


Frame buffer is a storage area for storing pixel values.
