The sampling rate, (how many samples per second are stored) for a CD is...?

Options are:

A.    48.4 kHz
B.    22,050 Hz
C.    44.1 kHz
D.    48 kHz

Answer:

C.    44.1 kHz

Information:

CDs reproduce 44,100 samples per second. Which has a maximum frequency reproduction of 22,050 Hz, or just a hair past the upper limit of human hearing. In this way CDs can theoretically reproduce any frequency in the human hearing range.
