SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans (b)
Sol. In 2^m : 1 MUX, 2^m denotes the number of input lines and m is the number of control signal needed to select any particular input lines.

S2. Ans.(d)

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. Resistivity of a semiconductor material lies in between an insulator and conductor i.e. 10^(-4) to 0.5 Ω-m.

S4. Ans.(a)

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. Microprocessor was used during the 4th generation between 1971 – 1980. In this generation, VLSI(Very Large Scale integration) is used.

S6. Ans.(c)

S7. Ans(a)
Sol. For representing a number, BCD decade counter uses four binary number and each flip flop used in counter gives the output as one binary number so minimum 4 flip-flops are required.

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. Time constant is
τ = RC = 5 × 100 × 10^(-6)= 5 × 10^(-4) sec.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. The frequency band for FM radio is about 88 to 108 MHz. The information signal is music and voice which falls in the audio spectrum. The full audio spectrum ranges from 20 to 20,000 Hz, but FM radio limits the upper modulating frequency to 15 kHz

S10. Ans.(a)
Sol. FTP(File Transfer Protocol) defines three different transmission modes that specify exactly how data is sent from one device to another over an opened data channel, Transmission mode is also called transfer modes. Those are –
Stream mode: In this data is transferred simply as a continuous stream of unstructured bytes.
Block mode: In this mode data is transferred after being broken into data blocks and encapsulated into individual FTP blocks, or records.
Compressed mode: In this mode data is transferred after being compressed
