    The keyboard can be USB or PS2 too as well as the printer can be USB.

    Disk drive is a bit vague:

    Hard? if so is it IDE or SCSI
    Floppy?
    CD/DVD

    internal or external?

    Cheers

    Wel If the Question is HOW IS THE DATA TRANSFERED BETWEEN THE DEVICES Then the answer is

    Code:
    Keyboard ps2/AT/USB = Serial
    Mouse ps2/serial/USB = Serial 
    
    Printer            25pin    = Parallel
                            USB     = Serial
    
    HDD                 *IDE    = Parallel
                            SCSI    = Parallel
                            SATA    = Serial  (this is the new fast breed)
    Now I hope this has helped you with your homework

    Cheers
