(a) Sign-magnitude
(b) 1’s complement
(c) 2’s complement
(d) 9,s complement

Q10. The 1’s complement of the number 11011 is
(a) 00101
(b) 11011
(c) 10101
(d) 00100


S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. We know that power factor is
cosϕ = R/Z
At resonance condition, Z = R
⇒ cosϕ = R/Z = 1
Hence, A series RLC circuit will have unity power factor at resonance condition only and fr =1/(2π√LC)

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. Given:
Frequency deviation(Δf) = 90 kHz
Message signal frequency(fm) = 5 kHz
We know that,
BW = 2(Δf + fm)
As y(t) = x2(t), that means it is a doubler circuit. There will be no change in the frequency of the message signal but there will be change in Frequency deviation. It will be doubled.
BW = 2(2 x 90 + 5) = 2(180 + 5)
So, BW = 370 kHz
Therefore, The bandwidth of the output signal is 370 kHz.

S3. Ans.(b)
CMP: compares the data byte in the register or memory with the contents of accumulator.
CMC: complement carry flag
CLC: clear carry flag

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. We know that,
Dimension of E ⃗ = V/m
Dimension of H ⃗ = A/m
Dimension of P ⃗ = V.A/m^2 = Watt/m^2
Hence, Dimension of P ⃗ is Power/unit area.

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. p(only first two tosses are heads) = p(H,H,T,T,T,….T)
Now, each toss is independent.
So, required probability
= p(H)× p(H)× [p(T)]^8 ….
= (1/2)^2 (1/2)^8=(1/2)^10

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol: After the SCR is turned ON, anode current goes on increasing and when becomes more than the latching current the gate loses control over the Anode current. Thus, gate pulse is removed. So, The current in the SCR will remain same.

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. Mesh topology routes data sent through any of several possible nodes to the receiving node. It is expensive for setup as it connects every node to all nodes on the network. However, it is considered the most reliable because it is most redundant of all topology i.e. if one node fails, the network can route traffic to another node.
In a mesh topology every node is connected to every other node i.e., bidirectional links between each possible nodes. So, Total number of cable links with n nodes = n(n – 1)/2

S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. After removal of air from the tube, vacuum is created in the tube and electrons get a clear path to flow from the cathode to anode, and a current flowing from anode to cathode is created. The current starts to flow when cathode is heated and a positive voltage is applied to the anode.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. In 1’s complement, 9’s complement and sign-magnitude zero is represented in more than one notation but in 2’s complement it is represented in only 1 way.

S10. Ans.(d)
Sol. In Complement, we convert binary ‘1’ to ‘0’ and ‘0’ to ‘1’.
So, 1’s complement of 11011 = 00100
