S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. A Gunn diode is a two-terminal semiconductor diode, with Negative Differential Resistance. It is also known as a Transferred Electron Device (TED).

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. Master slave flip flop is a cascade of two flip flops in which the first one responds to the data input when the block is high whereas the second one responds to the output of the first one when the clock is low. Thus the final output change only when the clock is low when the data inputs are not effective. Thus the race around condition gets eliminated in this.

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. Fabrication of ICs like counter, multiplexers and adders requires 30-300 gates per chip. Therefore, Medium Scale Integration is best suitable.

S4. Ans.(a)

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. Magnetic disc has the highest storage capacity.

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. In flat top pulses due to aperture effect amplitude distortion is found.

S7. Ans.(b)

S8. Ans.(d)
Sol. DNS(Domain Name System) is an application layer protocol for message exchange between clients and servers. It is a distributed database implemented in a hierarchy of name servers. It is a host name to IP address translation service i.e. mapping IP addresses with the hostname. DNS is a distributed database implemented in a hierarchy of name servers.

S9. Ans.(c)
• In AC link Chopper, the voltage inversion takes place. The DC voltage is converted into AC with the help of an inverter. Obtained AC is passed through a step-down or step-up transformers. The output from the transformers is again converted into DC by a rectifier. AC link choppers are very bulky and occupy a large amount of space.
• DC chopper works on DC voltage. They work as a step up and step down transformers on DC voltage. DC choppers are more efficient, speed, less cost and optimized devices. They provide smooth control over the DC voltage.

S10. Ans.(a)
Sol. Magnetic flux inside a closed surface is zero because net charge inside the closed surface is zero.
