A Portmanteau : ‘Pixel’ and ‘Modem’

Have you ever heard the word PORTMANTEAU. Well, it is a word made by combining two different words and their meanings.

Now answer me what two words make up ‘ Pixel’, which is ‘a minute area of illumination on a display screen?’ and what two words make up ‘ Modem’, which is ‘an electronic device that makes possible the transmission of data between the digital data of a computer and the analogue signal of a telephone line?’

Let me tell you, the word ‘Pixel’ is made by combining two different words Picture(Pix) and Element while ‘Modem’ is a combination of Modulation + Demodulation.
