(a) 1/2

(b) 1/4

(c) 7/12

(d) 3/4

Q2. Which of the following applications include a phase-locked loop (PLL) circuit?

(a) Modems

(b) AM decoders

(c) Tracking filters

(d) All of these

Q3. The number of independent loops for a network with n nodes and b branch is

(a) n – 1

(b) b – n

(c) b – n + 1

(d) independent of the number of nodes

Q4. The number of station accommodated in a 100kHz bandwidth with highest modulating frequency of 5 kHz is

(a) 5

(b) 10

(c) 15

(c) 20

Q5. Compiler can diagnose

(a) grammatical errors only

(b) logical errors only

(c) grammatical as well as logical errors

Q6. The register which holds the address of the location to or from which data are to be transferred is called

(a) index register

(b) instruction register

(c) memory address register

(d) memory data register

Q7. In a binary max heap containing ‘n’ numbers, the smallest element can be found in time

(a) O(n)

(b) O(logn)

(c) O(log(logn))

(d) O(1)

Q8. The main difference between the operation of transmission lines and waveguides is that

(a) the latter are not distributed, like transmission lines

(b) the former can use stubs and quarter-wave transformers, unlike the latter

(c) transmission lines use the principal mode of propagation, and therefore do not suffer from low-frequency cut-off

(d) terms such as impedance matching and standing-wave ration cannot be applied to waveguides.

(a) Multiplexer

(b) Demultiplexer

(c) Decoder

(d) Digital Counter

Q10. To sort many large objects or structures, it would be most efficient to

(a) place reference to them in an array and sort the array

(b) place them in a linked list and sort the linked list

(c) place pointers to them in an array and sort the array

(d) place them in an array and sort the array

SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(d)

Sol. Given:

Probability of problem solved by first student is P(A) = 1/2

Probability of problem solved by second student is P(B) = 1/3

Probability of problem solved by third student is P(B) = 1/4

Finding probability of problem not solved in each case,

P’(A) = 1 – 1/2 = 1/2

P’(B) = 1 – 1/3 = 2/3

P’(C) = 1 – 1/4 = 3/4

Now, Probability of none of them solved the problem correctly is

P’(A) P’(B) P’(C) = 1/2 × 2/3 × 3/4 = 1/4

So, Probability of problem being solved is

⇒ P(A) P(B) P(C) = 1 – P’(A) P’(B) P’(C)

⇒ P(A) P(B) P(C) = 1 – 1/4 = 3/4

Therefore, The probability that the problem will be solved is 3/4 .

S2. Ans.(d)

S3. Ans.(c)

Sol.

No. of independent loop = b + n – 1

No. of Loop Equation = b – n + 1

No of independent of node = n – 1

S4. Ans.(b)

Sol. Given:

The highest modulating frequency = 5kHz

Bandwidth = 100 kHz

Let number of stations accommodated be ‘n’.

Now, n × 2 × 5 = 100

⇒ 10n = 100

So, n = 10

S5. Ans.(a)

S6. Ans.(c)

Sol. Memory Address Register (MAR) either stores the memory address from which data will be fetched from the CPU, or the address to which data will be sent for storage.

S7. Ans.(a)

Sol. The smallest element in a max heap is always present at a leaf node. As Heap is a complete binary tree and every complete binary tree contain up to n/2 nodes on leaf. So, to examine all of them we would need O(n) time.

S8. Ans.(c)

S9. Ans.(a)

Sol. Multiplexer has many inputs and one output so it is also called “Parallel to Serial Converter” or “Data Selector”.

S10. Ans.(b)

Sol. Linked list is most efficient because –

Insertion and Deletion is easy for rearranging of elements .

Memory is allocated at run-time.

consists of multiple data type.

proper utilization of memory.
