SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(d)

Sol. Given:

F(s) = 1/(s(s^2+3s+2))

Initial Value Theorem is –

⇒ f(0^+) = lim┬(t → 0 )〖f(t)〗 = lim┬(s → ∞)〖sF(s)〗

So, lim┬(t → 0 )〖f(t)〗 = 0

S2. Ans.(b)

Sol. Given:

ω_o = 1

In a discrete time for complex exponential sequence to be periodic the period must be rational.

Here,

Period = 2π/ω_o = 2π

The value obtained is irrational so the discrete time complex exponential sequence is non-periodic.

S3. Ans.(a)

Sol. Resonant converters eliminate much of the switching losses encountered in Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) converters.

S4. Ans.(c)

Sol. Tuned voltage amplifiers are not used in Public address system.

S5. Ans.(b)

Sol. We know that,

Conductivity = 1/Resistivity=1/(ohm.m)

Hence, unit of conductivity is mho/m.

S6. Ans.(d)

Sol. In the OSI network model, network layer provides data routing paths for communications with different devices at different network i.e. inter-networking. It also helps in congestion control. Error and flow control is a function of the data link layer and the transport layer.

S7. Ans.(c)

Sol. Microcontroller contains Processor Memory Timers and I/O devices. I/O devices perform the operation based on the instruction stored in the memory.

S8. Ans.(a)

Sol. Converting each binary bit to decimal and then adding we get,

1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 4

Converting back to binary digit we get,

4_10 = (0100)_2

S9. Ans.(b)

Sol. Highly doped semiconductor is called Degenerate Semiconductor. It may be of N – Type

or P – Type. Thermoelectric Phenomenon causes diffusion of flow of charge carriers from hot

to a cold part of a crystal.

Based on Thermoelectric Phenomenon, we get that –

The electron charge carriers present at the hot end of the semiconductor moves towards the cold end due to diffusion, creating negative excessive charge carriers on the cold contact. So, the heated end of the semiconductor becomes positive and it is called N – Type semiconductor.

In P – Type semiconductor holes are majority charge carriers so it takes part in diffusion. The heated end of the semiconductor is negative so it is of P – Type.

S10. Ans.(d)

Sol. We know that,

W_E = Q^2/2C

E = εD

C = Aε/d

All the three are proportional to dielectric material ε so when dielectric material changes these three value also changes.
