Similarly, in the world of Travel Agents, booking a place on an airplane to some destinations can be booked in town at the same starting point and safely. Even if the customer or airline flight plans change suddenly though, Travel Agent can serve it with calm because communication information technology services used in the computer system.

Thus the main device to perform these actions also consists of input devices (input devices), the process (process devices), as well as the output device (output devices), which is coupled with the data or information storage devices (storage devices).
In college, when we learn the computer, then we usually will be faced with two choices.
