SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(a)

Sol. Flat top sampling of low pass signal gives the spectrum of sinc function with attenuated amplitude of high frequency components. This affect is called Aperture effect. As there is increase in pulse width, there will be more loss in high frequency components.

S2. Ans.(c)

Sol. Intrinsic semiconductor is a material which do not have any impurity material mixed in it. Hence, Intrinsic semiconductor is called Pure semiconductor.

S3. Ans.(d)

Sol. Flux is equal to the total charges enclosed in a Gaussian spherical surface, it does not depend upon the radius of Gaussian spherical surface.

S4. Ans.(a)

Sol. 1024 × 8 = 2^10 × 8

Hence, 10 address lines are needed with each address line of 4-bits.

S5. Ans.(a)

Sol. Shifting the binary decimal point one place to the right shows the increment of the number. So. The number increases and it is done by multiplying by 2.

Before Shifting,

After Shifting one decimal point to the right we get,

S6. Ans.(b)

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.

S7. Ans.(b)

Sol. Given:

f(t) = cos[π/8(t-1)]

We know that, Period = 2π/ω for any sinusoidal function like cosωt

After comparing f(t) with standard sinusoidal signal cosωt.

We get, ω = π/8

So, Period = 2π/(π/8) = 2 x 8 = 16 s

S8. Ans.(d)

Sol. Laplacian equation is ∇^2 V = ∇.∇V

Laplacian of a scalar field V results in the divergence of gradient of V.

S9. Ans.(c)

Sol. The channel width of JFET can be controlled by Gate to Source voltage. On applying the reverse bias voltage to the gate, the depletion width of PN junction increases so the net channel width decreases due to penetration of depletion layer in the channel. So, two back-biased pn junction controls the channel width of a JFET.

S10. Ans.(a)

Sol. Given:

cosϕ = 0.8

Input power(V.I) = 20 kVA

Power drawn by the circuit is

⇒ P = V.I cosϕ

⇒ P = 20 × 0.8 kW

So, P = 16 kW
