I want to know how software is converted into electrical pulses or
1's in computer. How does the computer do it? I know that
1 in binary system actually represent
on states respectively and the computer stores the data in its memory in the same state. Also I want to know how the computer(more specifically the video controller) converts the binaries i.e
1 or low voltage and high voltage into a form that can be displayed on the monitor or is this the work of the monitor.
And at last, what do we mean by
instructions to processor. I mean here the
op codes. As processor only manipulates the on and off states of the circuit then how the
op codes triggers the processor to do a specific task.
So, please help me and increment my knowledge......

When you have a compiled program, i.e., software, then that is just a chunk of memory containing machine codes (or instructions). So, as AD said, the thing that converts software (source) into binary form is the compiler. Once you have a binary executable program, the way that it gets executed …
