Hello Friends,
A computer stores data using several different methods. Therefore, there are different levels of data storage, which may be referred to as primary and secondary storage.

Probably Primary=RAM (Temporary) and Secondary=HardDrive (Permanent). I suppose it could also be Primary=Internal and Secondary=External though. I'd have to read the chapter to figure out exactly what the questions is referring to.

Primary could be the hard drive and secondary could be a CD/DVD.
Or primary hard drive and secondary hard drive.

We would need the article to make a better call on this.

What is the point you are trying to make?
