SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans. (c)

Sol. Heat generated across a resistance is directly proportional to the square of current flowing through it. Heat generated is

H = i^2Rt

S2. Ans.(a)

Sol. In saturation mode, A transistor acts like a short circuit between collector and emitter. Both emitter and collector are forward biased. The transistor now acts like a closed switch.

S3. Ans. (d)

Sol. For 2’s compliment we use 1st compliment and then add 1.

Step 1: Write the compliment of the given binary number

01010101 ⟶ 10101010

Step 2: Add 1 to the complemented number

10101010 + 1 = 10101011

Therefore, The 2’s compliment of the binary number (01010101)_2 is (10101011)_2.

S4. Ans.(c)

Sol. The Butterworth filter has a flat frequency response. It has Flat Magnitude filter from 0 Hz to cut-off frequency without any ripples. So, it is also called as an ideal Low Pass filter.

S5. Ans(b)

Sol. In PCM modulation, the analog signal is sampled at regular intervals and after that it is quantized and transmitted serially as data words in pulse code i.e., digital signal. It is highly immune to noise hence highly efficient. PAM, PWM and PPM are more affected by noise.

S6. Ans.(a)

Sol. Given:

ZS = 75Ω

ZL = 300Ω

We know that, in case of quarter wave transformer,

Characteristic Impedance(ZO) = √(Z_S Z_L )

Now, ZO = √(75 x 300) = √22500

So, ZO = 150 Ω

S7. Ans(b)

Sol. Total number of Entries in the truth table of a NAND gate with n number of inputs is

⇒ Y = 2n

Here, n = 3,

So, Y = 2^3 = 8

Therefore, there will be 8 entries in the truth table of a 3 input NAND gate.

S8. Ans.(c)

Sol. Given:

g(t) = e^(-t), t > 0.

Its Laplace transform is –

G(s) = 1/(s+1)

S9. Ans.(a)

Sol. By varying the winding turns of the transformer, both magnitude of voltage and current can be varied. Since P = VI so transformer transforms the power.

S10. Ans(d)

Sol. Given:

Carrier Power(P_c) = 1 kW

Modulation depth(µ) = 60% = 0.6

We know that, Total power is

P_t=P_c (1+μ^2/2)

Now, P_t = 1(1+〖0.6〗^2/2) kW

=1 (1+0.18) kW = 1.18 kW.

Therefore, The total power in the modulated carrier is 1.18 kW.
