C. Disk mirroring uses only one disk controller, whereas, disk duplexing uses additional disk controller.

D. Disk mirroring uses only one disk, whereas, disk duplexing uses two disks.

Correct Answer: C


In RAID1, or disk mirroring, one drive in the array acts as a "mirror" drive, backing up all the data on the primary drive on-the-fly.
Duplexing adds another disk controller. So in case one controller fails, the other can pick up without any interruption in service.
