SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(a)

Sol. In the given instruction data or operand from register B is added to the data present in the register A and the result is finally stored in register ‘A’. This instruction is in “Direct Addressing Mode”.

S2. Ans (a)

Sol. Since, all of the clock inputs are connected through a single clock pulse in ring shift and Johnson counters. So, both are Synchronous counters.

S3. Ans.(c)

Sol. Both bulbs have same voltage and power rating so both will have same resistance.

⇒ R = V^2/P

⇒ R = (200)^2/100

∴ R = 400Ω

As both the bulbs are connected in series so total resistance will be added.

⇒ R_T = 400 Ω + 400 Ω = 800 Ω

Current flowing through bulb is

⇒ I = P/V

∴ I =100/200 = 0.5A

Total power consumed by both bulbs are

∴ I^2 R_T=(0.5)^2 × 800 = 0.25 × 800 = 200 Watt

Hence, Total power consumed by each bulb = 200/2 = 100 watt.

S4. Ans. (b)

Sol. In the given figure, the feedback is connected to positive terminal of Op-amp so it behaves as a Positive feedback and input is applied to inverting terminal. So, the given figure is of Schmitt Trigger.

S5. Ans.(c)

Sol. Given:

|M_r| = 1

We know that in second order system,

⇒ |M_r| = 1/(2ζ√(1-ζ^2 ))

⇒ 1 = 1/(2ζ√(1-ζ^2 ))

⇒ 4ζ^2(1-ζ^2) = 1

Solving we get,

⇒ ζ = 1/√2

S6. Ans.(d)

Sol. Given:

V = 4x + 2 volts

We know that,

E ⃗ = -dV/dx (a_x ) ⃗

⇒ E ⃗ = -(d(4x + 2 ))/dx (a_x ) ⃗

So, E ⃗ = -4 (a_x ) ⃗ V/m

S7. Ans.(b)

Sol. Given:

G(s) = 1/((3s+1))

We know that in transfer function

G(s) = 1/((1+sT))

The corner frequency is ω = 1/T

Comparing we get Corner frequency as,

⇒ ω = 1/3

So, ω = 0.33 rad/sec

S8. Ans.(a)

S9. Ans.(a)

Sol. In PCM, Companding is a technique which compresses the data at the transmitter and expands the same data at the receiver. It is a combination of the words “Compressing” and “Expanding.”

So, Compression in PCM refers to relative compression of higher signal amplitudes.

S10. Ans.(c)

Sol. Given:

F(s) = ( (27s + 97)/(s^2 +33s) )

We know that, Initial Value Theorem is

f(0+) = lim┬(s → ∞)〖sF(s)〗

Now, f(0+) = lim┬(s → ∞)s ( (27s + 97)/(s^2 +33s) ) = lim┬(s → ∞) (27 + 97/s)/(1 + 33/s ) = 27

Therefore, f(0+) = 27
