S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. Wired medium is called guided media and wireless medium is called Unguided media. Example of guided media are Optical Fiber Cable, Coaxial Cable, Twisted Fiber Cable etc. Example of unguided media are wireless LAN.

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. Alpha ray and cathode ray are not electromagnetic in nature.

S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. It means 3 – head appears in 1st 9 trials.
Probability of getting exactly 3 head in 1st 9 trials
= (_ ^9)C_3 Γ—(1/2)^3 (1/2)^6= (_ ^9)C_3 Γ—(1/2)^9
and in 10th trial head must appears.
So, required probability
= (_ ^9)C_3 (1/2)^9Γ—1/2=84/1024=0.082

S4. Ans. (c)
Sol. Truth Table of Ex-NOR gate is

Therefore, The output of Ex-NOR gate is always 1 if both the inputs are same.

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. It is given that the number of bits in a binary PCM system is increased from n to n+1.
We know that, SQNR = 3/2 2^2n
For n1 = n,
γ€–(SQNR)γ€—_1 = 3/2 2^2n
For n2 = n + 1,
γ€–(SQNR)γ€—_2 = 3/2 2^(2(n+1))
γ€–(SQNR)γ€—_2/(γ€–(SQNR)γ€—_1 ) = (3/2 2^(2(n+1)))/(3/2 2^2n ) = (3/2 2^2n.2^2)/(3/2 2^2n ) = 4
So, γ€–(SQNR)γ€—_2 = 4γ€–(SQNR)γ€—_1
Therefore, Signal to quantization noise ratio increases by factor of 4. So this is improvement in SQNR is independent of n.

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol: An Instruction Cycle is the basic process of a computer. It is the process by which a computer retrieves a program instruction from its memory, determines what actions the instruction is asking to take and carries out those actions. It is also known as fetch decode-execute cycle.

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol. According to the property of Impulse response –
𝛿(t – a)* 𝛿(t – b) = 𝛿(t – a – b)
Here, When the system is cascaded, the overall impulse response is –
β‡’ 𝛿(t – 0.5)* 𝛿(t – 0.5) = 𝛿(t – 0.5 – 0.5)
So, 𝛿(t – 0.5)* 𝛿(t – 0.5) = 𝛿(t – 1)

S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. A piezoelectric crystal is an accelerometer that follows the piezoelectric effect of certain materials to measure dynamic changes in mechanical parameters like acceleration, vibration, and mechanical shock.

S9. Ans. (c)
Sol. In Ideal case an Op-Amp has infinite input resistance so that no current can flow across both terminals and zero output resistance so that there is no loss of signal. Hence, A practical Op-Amp has high input impedance and low output resistance.

S10. Ans.(b);
Sol. According to Superposition theorem,
CASE I: Only voltage source is present

β‡’ I_1=5/1 = 5 Amp . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (1)
CASE II: Only current source is present

β‡’ I_2 = 0 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (2)
All 5 A current flow through the short circuit branch.
Adding 1 and 2, we get
β‡’ I = I_1+I_2
So, I = 5 + 0 = 5A
