(a) object
(b) class
(c) method
(d) all of the mentioned


S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. Given:
Each memory access time(T) = 100 ns
One frame period = 125 µs

We know that,
1 Frame Period = 2nT [where n is number of lines]

Now, 125 µs = 2n(100ns)
n = (125 × 10^(-6))/(200〖 × 10〗^(-9) )
So, n = 625

Therefore, the maximum number of lines that can be supported is 625.

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. (1) and (2) are valid constructor for thread but (3), (4) and (5) are not legal constructor.

S3. Ans.(b)

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. In class B network, first 2 octet are reserved for Network ID and remaining 2 for Host ID. So first 6 bits of 3rd octet are used for subnet and remaining 13 bits for hosts.
Maximum number of subnets = 2^6 – 2 = 64 – 2 = 62 subnets
2 is subtracted because subnet values containing all zero’s and all one’s are reserved for broadcast address so reducing the total number by 2.

Number of hosts = 2^10 – 2 = 1024 – 2 = 1022

Therefore, the maximum number of subnets and maximum number of hosts in each subnet are 62 subnets and 1022 hosts respectively.

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. Characteristics of different RAID are:-
RAID-0: Disk array striping at the level of blocks rather than mirroring and parity, for data handling.
RAID-1: Disk mirroring with block stripping i.e., the replication of data to two or more disks. This is also called as RAID 10 or RAID 1+0.
RAID-2: stripes data at the bit level using a Hamming code to detect errors. Memory system have long parity bits for error detection and correction.
RAID-3: uses a parity disk to store the information instead of striping it with the data.

S6. Ans.(d)

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol. Given:
Speed up factor = 10
Efficiency = 80% = 0.8

We know that,
Efficiency = Speed up/No. of stages

Now, No. of stages = Speed up/Efficiency
No. of stages = 10/0.8
So, No. of stages = 12.5 = 13(approx.)

S8. Ans.(d)
Sol. A Ripple Counter is an asynchronous counter in which only the first flip-flop is applied with an external clock and all subsequent flip-flops are clocked by the output of the preceding flip-flop. Same is the case in edge-triggered JK flip-flop.

S9. Ans.(b)
Statement 1 is Incorrect. DC choppers are used only for DC drives.
Statement 2 is Correct.
Statement 3 is Incorrect. Output voltage depends only on Duty cycle and independent of load current.
Statement 4 is Correct.

S10. Ans.(d)
Sol. Encapsulation refers to the bundling of data with the methods that operate on that data. It is used to hide the values or state of a structured data object inside a class, preventing unauthorized parties’ direct access to them. Also called combination of data-hiding and abstraction. Encapsulation provides contract to other object of what to hide and what to expose which can be accessed by other objects.
