S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. Program Counter is a 16-bit “Auto increment register” in which address of the next instruction to be executed is stored after the content of the current location is sent for fetch.

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. Conversion efficiency of Class-A amplifier is
% η = (1-V_min/V_CC ) × 25%
Therefore, the maximum conversion efficiency is 25%.

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. If f(x) is the continuous Probability Density Function of a random variable X then,
p(a < x ≤ b) = p(a ≤ x < b) = p(a ≤ x ≤ b)= ∫_a^b▒f(x)dx

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. A Photodiode is a PN-junction diode that consumes light energy to produce electric current or voltage based on the mode of operation of the device. It is also known as photo-detector, a light detector, and photo-sensor. They mainly work in reverse bias condition. Photodiodes are used in compact disc players, smoke detectors, medical devices and the receivers for infrared remote control devices for television and AC.

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. Except Power Aluminium cable, all others are used as communication medium between operation and operated unit.

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. Physical, Data link and Network layers are network support layers and Session, Presentation and Application layers are user support layers. The transport layer links these layers by segmenting and rearranging the data. Protocols like TCP and UDP are used.

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. Given:
c(t) = 0.5(1 – e^(-2t))u(t)
Impulse response is –
⇒ 𝛿(t) = (dc(t))/dt
⇒ 𝛿(t) = d/dt{0.5(1 – e^(-2t))u(t)}
⇒ 𝛿(t) =0.5(2e^(-2t))u(t)
So, 𝛿(t) = e^(-2t)u(t)

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol. (P + Q’)(PQ’ + PR)(P’R’ + Q’) = (P + Q`)P(Q` + R)(P`R` + Q`)
= (P + Q`)P(P`Q`R` + Q`Q` + P`R`R + RQ`)
= (P + Q`)P (P`Q`R` + Q` + 0 + RQ`)
= (P + Q`)(PP`Q`R` + PQ` + PRQ`) = (P + Q`)( 0 + PQ` + PRQ`)
= (P + Q`)(PQ` + PRQ’) = (P + Q`)PQ`(1 + R)
= (P + Q`)(PQ’) = PPQ` + PQ`Q`
= PQ` + PQ` = PQ’

S9. Ans.(d)
Sol: At the same firing angle, Freewheeling diode delivers more power to load as compared to without it. Volt-Ampere input is same in both the case. So, we can say that input power factor is improved due to the use of freewheeling diode.

S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. The waveguides are made up of conductor and conductor prevent travelling of waves tangential or parallel to it. Hence, the electromagnetic waves are reflected from the walls but do not travel along the walls.
