S1. Ans (b)
Sol. The sequence is as following:
⇒ 02 = 010
⇒ 12 = 110
⇒ 102 = 210
⇒ 112 = 310
⇒ 1002 = 410

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. Conversion efficiency is
% η = (1-V_min/V_CC ) × 50 %
Maximum efficiency in class A amplifier is 50% in case of transformer coupled Class – A amplifier.

S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. In any complex exponential sequence,
⇒ h(n) = e^(jω_o n)
Period is –
⇒ N = 2π/ω_o .m where, m is integer
⇒ N = 2π/2π.m
⇒ N =m
For any integer value of m, N is rational. So, sequence is periodic.

S4. Ans.(d)
Sol. Schottky diode is a unipolar device because current conduction takes place only in one direction due to majority charge carrier either electrons or holes. This class of diodes use metal-to-semiconductor junction for rectification purposes instead of PN-junctions.

S5. Ans (b)
Sol. A Variable-reluctance Stepper motor is constructed of a soft iron multi-toothed rotor, a wound stator and ferromagnetic material with salient poles. The stator is made from a stack of steel laminations and has six equally-spaced projecting poles (or teeth) each wound with an exciting coil. Rotation occurs when the rotor teeth are attracted to the energized stator poles.

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. A Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC) is an error-detecting code used in digital networks and storage devices to detect accidental changes to raw data. It is inserted into the frame trailer i.e. a data, to identify any error that occurred during the transmission of the data. It only detects error but do not correct them.

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. Program Counter is used to hold the memory address of the next instruction to be fetched for execution. It is an automatic counter which increases the address of the memory when execution is completed.

S8. Ans.(d)
Sol. Given:
We know that,
E = -dV/dr
and, in case of charge with in a unit sphere( i.e. r = 1)
E = 1/(4π∈_O ) . q/r^2
E = -dV/dr = (30r^4)/∈_O
and 1/(4π∈_O ) . q/r^2 = (30r^4)/∈_O
⇒ 1/4π . q/1 = 30/1 [ for r = 1]
So, q =120π Coulomb.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. IC555 timer is used to generate Square Wave & Pulse signal which may be rectangular in shape.

S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. Channels are separated in FDM with the help of Bandpass filters.
Band pass filter allows a band of frequencies to pass through and attenuates other frequencies.
