S1. Ans. (d)
Sol. When transistors are used in digital circuits they usually operate in the saturation and cut off region. In Saturation region they act as a Short Circuit i.e., ON(‘1’) and in Cut-off region they act as Open Circuit i.e., OFF(‘0’).

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. Instruction Cycle consists of fetch cycle and execute cycle. So, A fetch cycle is the first part of the instruction cycle.

S3. Ans.(b)

S4. Ans.(c)

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. In Zener diode, current is limited only by the external resistance and the power dissipation of Zener diode so for heavy load current power dissipation goes high hence it will result low efficiency of the Zener diode.

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. In Smith Chart, the distance towards the load is always measured in anti-clockwise direction.

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol: Advanced encryption standard (AES) is used in symmetric key algorithm for the encryption of electronic data. It is an iterative rather than Feistel cipher. It is based on ‘substitution–permutation network’ and comprises of a series of linked operations.

S8. Ans.(c)

S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. ‘LHLD 2000H’ is in Direct Addressing Mode. It means data stored in the location 2000 H is loaded in ‘HL register pair’. It is a 16-bit address with 3 byte instructions.

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. A synchronous motor under over-excited condition operates at a leading power factor. Synchronous motors are therefore employed in large power installations for improving the overall power factor of the installation.
