Q. With reference to Quantum Computing, consider the following statements;
1.Quantum mechanics is a science that describes the unique behavior of matter and energy at the atomic and subatomic level.
2.Quantum computers are less prone to interference.
Which of the statements given above is/are correct?

[A] 1 only

[B] 2 only

[C] Both 1 and 2

[D] .Neither 1 nor 2

Answer: A
Notes:

Statement 1 is correct: Quantum mechanics is a science that describes the unique behavior of matter and energy at the atomic and subatomic level.

Statement 2 is incorrect: quantum computers are highly prone to interference that leads to errors in quantum algorithms running on it. Thus it can give erroneous results. Scientists are working to improve accuracy e.g., Google has announced plans to have fault-tolerant quantum-computing hardware by 2030.
