SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(a)

Sol. For series connected capacitor, total capacitance (CT) is –

⇒ 1/C_T =1/C_1 +1/C_2 +1/C_3

⇒ 1/C_T = 1/8+1/16+1/32

⇒ 1/C_T =(4 + 2 + 1)/32=7/32

So, C_T=32/7 μF

S2. Ans.(b)

Sol. Source Codes are:-

Huffman code

Shannon-Fano code

Error Correcting Codes are:-

Hamming codes

Convolution codes

S3. Ans.(b)

Sol. For best reception in LOS communication both transmitting antenna and receiving antenna should face each other and must be in same polarization. If not in same polarization then fading or losses of signal may takes place. As Transmitting antenna is vertically polarized so receiver antenna must also be vertically polarized.

S4. Ans. (c)

Sol.

Therefore, (100)_10=(1100100)_2 .

S5. Ans.(d)

Sol. For any system to be dynamic it must have memory. Here, the output value of the independent variable at a given time depends only on the input at the same time , so the system is memoryless. Hence, the system is Non-dynamic.

The given equation has order greater than one so it cannot satisfy linearity property. Hence, the system is Non-linear.

S6. Ans.(c)

Sol. In a semiconductor charges will always have a tendency to move from higher concentrated area to less concentrated area to maintain equilibrium, this movement of charge carriers results in Diffusion current.

S7. Ans. (b)

Sol. By considering ω = 0 and ω = ∞, we can check the type of filter.

At ω = 0, inductor behaves as Short circuit and capacitor present in feedback behaves as open circuit so signal will pass through the circuit and we will get some output voltage.

At ω = ∞, inductor behaves as Open circuit and capacitor present in feedback behaves as Short circuit so due to open circuit inductor signal will not pass through the circuit and we will get no output voltage.

This is similar to the Low Pass Filter characteristics. So, The above figure behaves as a Low Pass Filter.

S8. Ans.(a)

Sol. Octal numbers can be made from binary numbers by grouping 3 consecutive binary digits starting from the right. For Example (101 100)2 = 542 .

S9. Ans.(d)

Sol. Passive network have no energy source of its own so they have no voltage or current sources. It depends on external source for operation.

S10. Ans.(d)
