The correct answer to this question is Network. This network allows computers to exchange data with one another. The data is shared by data links, which are links through established through various means like wired or Wi-Fi. Networks are essential because they support several applications. They are the reason we have access to the Internet and able to access apps on our smart devices.

Computer networks also allow devices to work together. For example, a person can print from their computer to a printer when they are on the same network. Though computer networks all have the same purpose, they can differ when it comes to their speed and how much traffic they can handle. The Internet is the most famous example of a computer network.

The correct answer to this question is network. A computer network is a set of computers that are connected together in some way in order to share resources such as data. The largest and most common network currently in operation is the Internet. Smaller versions of networks include a file server, multiple computers attached to one printer, various devices connected to one central modem, etc.

Data links can be done through cables, wires, or wireless media such as WiFi. Three common types of networks are a Local Area Network (LAN), a Wide Area Network (WAN), and a metropolitan area network (MAN).
