S1. Ans.(a)
Network Link Service Protocol(NLSP) provides link-state routing.
Routing Information Protocol(RIP) is used by routers to exchange routing information on a network.
Netware Core Protocol(NCP) is a Novell client-server protocol for LAN and used to access file, print, directory, clock synchronization, messaging, remote command execution and other network service functions.
Service Advertisement Protocol(SAP) is a Novell NetWare protocol which is used for service providers to advertise their services on the network.

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. In parallel, If one bulb gets fused then it doesn’t affect the rest of the 3 bulbs. Hence, Rest 3 bulbs will light.

S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. Any process can come into ready state either after Start State or while waiting to have the processor allocated to them by the operating system after execution of any instruction.
The process is in blocked state, when process is unable to run until some task has been completed.

S4. Ans.(d)
Sol. For n-bit binary number its value is 2^n-1.
For example: 11112 = 2^3 x 1 + 2^2 x 1 + 2^1 x 1 + 2^0 x 1
= 8 + 4 + 2 + 1 = 15
And, 11112 = 2^4-1 = 15
So, both have same value.

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. fflush() function will be necessary to hold the output of the process together or print it when necessary. Each fork() function creates 2 child so two fork() function creates 4 child process hence “PROCESS” will be executed 4 times.

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. Given:
Number of vertices = 25
Number of regions = 17
According to Euler’s Formula –
If G be a connected planar graph and n, m and f denote the numbers of vertices, edges, and faces (regions) respectively in a plane. Then
⇒ n – m + f = 2
⇒ 25 – m + 17 = 2
⇒ 42 – m = 2
So, m = 42 – 2 = 40

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. Merge Sort is a recursive algorithm. Input array is divided by this in two halves then calls itself for the two halves and finally merges the two sorted halves in linear time. Merge Sort and Quick Sort are Divide and Conquer algorithm.

S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. As the 7th toss is head so before 7th toss we must get 3 heads to make total number of head exactly 4. 3 heads in previous 6 tosses can appear at any toss so the probability is –
Required probability of getting exactly 4 heads = 6C3 (1/2)^3 × (1/2)^3 × 1/2 = 6!/3!3! × (1/2)^6 × 1/2
= 20/1 × 1/64 × 1/2 = × 5/32

S9. Ans.(d)
Sol. char[] str is a declaration in Java and not in C programming.

S10. Ans. (a)
Sol. Form factor is
F =(r.m.s value)/(average value)
