    cord

    I know in every electrical appliances like a computer, cpu, T.V., mouse, mixer, etc. there are a wire/cord which has a plug on the other end and we plug this plug into the outlet to provide the appliance with electricity. But I wonder do we say the wire i.e. an attached wire in monitor/cpu, etc. as a "cord".

    Re: cord

    Thank you Anglika.
    That means I can call that as a "cord, wire, cables". All of these are right. Am I right?

    Please help me.

    No - in computer terminology they are cables.

    Do you never call them wires or cords? I know it's not technically correct, but when you're hooking up your computer, you wouldn't say "Okay, grab that wire as I drop it behind the desk. Yeah, that one. Okay, now the cord for the monitor is coming next."

    No - we always call them cables in the office - printer cable, scanner cable, mouse cable (thought that's becoming redundant with wifi).
