(c) Signal

Q10. v(t) = 5[cos(106πt) – sin(103πt) x sin(106πt)] represents
(a) NBFM signal
(b) AM signal
(c) SSB upper sideband signal
(d) DSB-SC signal


S1. Ans.(d)
Sol. Semiconductor memory is made up of flip-flop so both its access time and cycle time is very less. Hence, It is the fastest memory cell.

S2. Ans.(a)

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. Header contains the control information and parameters agreed between the applications. It is only sent at the beginning of an operation. In OSI model, when data packet moves from lower layers to higher layer, headers get removed and vice versa.

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. In a pn junction diode,
r = (ηV_T)/I
Transconductance = 1/resistance
So, g_m = I/(ηV_T )
Therefore, A pn junction diode’s dynamic conductance is directly proportional to its current.

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. For calculating Thevenin voltage, load resistance is removed and calculated across AB.

V_Th is Open circuit voltage at terminal AB
No current flows through DA branch due to open circuit. Net resistance is 10 Ω.
Current in open circuit is –
I = 50/10=5 A
So, Thevenin voltage is calculated across 7 Ω resistance.
⇒ V_Th = 5 × 7
So, V_Th = 35 volts

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. 8086 microprocessor is a microprocessor which works on the pipeline technique. It works in two stages – Fetch Stage and Execution Stage.

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. Both the statements are correct.
Net charge within a conductor is always zero because due to law of electrical charge neutrality.

S8. Ans (c)
Sol. The sequence is as following:
⇒ 02 = 010
⇒ 12 = 110
⇒ 102 = 210
⇒ 112 = 310
⇒ 1002 = 410

S9. Ans.(d)
Sol. Only 7-bit ASCII codes are transmitted through SMTP. So, it is mandatory to convert binary multimedia data to 7-bit ASCII before it is sent using SMTP.

S10. Ans.(a)
v(t) = 5[cos(106πt) – sin(103πt) x sin(106πt)]
⇒ v(t) = 5cos(106πt) – 5/2cos(106 – 103) πt + 5/2cos(106 + 103) πt
From above expression of signal, we get that carrier and upper side band frequency components are in phase but the lower side band frequency component is out of phase.
Therefore, The given expression represents a NBFM signal.
