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

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

Answer: Option C


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.
