Option B.

When power off memory will automatically erase in non volatile memory when its again on.

No the correct ans is B because from the name itself we can say the memory is not volatile meaning its not erasable.

Volatile- Power off memory automatically erases, i.e. does not display when power again ON.

Non-Volatile- Power off memory does not erases when power again on it is saved.

Volatile memory is one which is erased when they turns off, but non-volatile memory never erased when they turns off.

After the turn off the machine. The capacity of the memory does not lost.

Once which turn off the machine then the data doesn't lose in non-volatile.

Right answer is A.

Volatile memory is a type of storage whose contents are erased when the system's power is turned off or interrupted. For example, RAM is volatile, meaning users will lose a document if they do not save their work to a non-volatile classification of memory, such as a hard drive, before shutting down the computer.
