Hint: An easy way to find the full form of abbreviation is to compare the first letter of every word in the options with the alphabets in the abbreviation.

Complete answer:
One of the simplest ways to find the full form of abbreviation is to compare the first letter of every word in the options with the alphabets in the abbreviation. We are given an abbreviation called RAM, if we compare it with option (A) we will see that it does not match well with the abbreviation same happens for option (B) also. In both option (A) and (B) the second important word starts with ‘O’ not ‘A’, so these two options have less chance of being the correct answer.
Option (C) agrees with the abbreviation alphabets and the answer can also be option (D). To differentiate between the two options, we need to understand what ‘RAM’ is. RAM is a form of memory we find in electronic devices like computers, smartphones etc... It reads and writes data from different applications in the device and it can randomly access memory from any data storage. So the term random access tells you that it is a random access memory.
So the answer to the question is option (C)- Random Access Memory.

Note: First form random access memory was designed in England using cathode ray tubes, after some time magnetic core memory was used till 1970. After 1970 integrated circuits containing semiconductor MOSFETs were used.
