Central Processing Unit (CPU): This consists of three divisions. They are:

1) Primary memory unit: This memory unit allows computer to store the data orinstruction read by input devices or data obtained by calculations in the program.

2) Control unit: This controls unit directs the operations of all units. This unit decodes and executes the instructions given in the program.

3) Arithmetic logic unit: This performs basic arithmetic operations like adding, subtracting, multiplicating, dividing and uses trigonometrical functions. It can also perform logical operations like comparing two variables, justifying the conditions. It can take many logical decisions.
Secondary memory or storage unit: These are external storage units and store data or program permanently on magnetic disk and magnetic tape.
