S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. An Ethernet Hub functions as a repeater. In Telecommunication, a repeater is an electronic device which retransmits the received signal at a higher power. It is used for increasing signal strength.

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. In Norton’s equivalent Circuit, Norton resistance is connected in parallel with the Norton Current source but in Thevenin’s equivalent circuit, Thevenin resistance is connected in series with the Thevenin Voltage source. Hence, Norton’s theorem is converse of Thevenin’s theorem.

S3. Ans.(a)

S4. Ans.(d)
Sol. The unclocked R-S flip flop made of NOR gates is equivalent to the RS latch circuit. So, The forbidden input condition in RS latch circuit is R = 1, S = 1.

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. Given:
Q_1 = Q_2 = 1 nC = 10^(-9) C
r = 1mm = 10^(-3) m
We know that,
K = 9 × 10^9 Nm^2/C^2
According to Coulomb’s Law –
F = (KQ_1 Q_2)/r^2
F = (9 × 10^9 × 10^(-9) × 10^(-9) )/〖(10^(-3))〗^2
⇒ F = (9 × 10^(-9) )/10^(-6)
So, F = 9 × 10^(-3) N

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. The Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC) ) is an error-detecting code commonly used in digital networks and storage devices to detect corrupted data. The sending device calculates the CRC and adds it to the frame. The receiving device calculates the CRC when the frame is received. If the CRCs do not match, the frame has been corrupted or altered. Blocks of data entering these systems get a short check value attached, based on the remainder of a polynomial division of their contents. The most common method of correcting errors is to request retransmission of the original frame.

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. EPROM is a Non-volatile Read Only Memory and not Random Access Memory.

S8. Ans. (c)
Sol. An upward counter can count both in forward and backward direction.

S9. Ans.(d)
Sol. Given:
Radiated power (Pt) = 10kW
Modulation index (µ) = 0.6
We know that,
Pt = Pc [1+ µ^2/2]
Now, 10 = Pc [1+ 〖0.6〗^2/2]
⇒ 10 = Pc [1+0.18]
So, Pc = 10/1.18 = 8.47 KW
Therefore, The power in the carrier for modulation index of 0.6 is nearly 8.47 KW.

S10. Ans.(a)
