subtraction and multiplication

15.) the sorting algorithm that requires maximum comparisons when in sorted
order and minimum comparisons when in reverse

order?

(b.) binary insertion sort

(c.) heap sort

(d.) bubble sort

16.) A graph is represented as an adjacency list with n vertices and e edges
What is its time complexity

17.) A variable in a function cannot be accessed outside the function, why?
(think the question is like this)

(a.) garbage collection

(b.) because it exists in swap area of memory

(c.)it gets popped out of the stack

18.)How many addresses are possible with 512 64kb segments?

19.) A question on pages and pagetables, i think to find the wrong statement of
the given

(a.) small pages implies large page tables

(b.) larger pages implies i/o operations efficiency

(don’t remember the rest of the options, though the answer lies there)

20.) A reference string was given and using LRU page replacement algorithm we
were asked to find the state of the memory

during 3rd page fault, the memory size being 3 pages.

21.) A finite automaton was given and we were asked to find the expression that
represented the language that could be

accepted by the finite automaton

22.) There was a question on networks given a set of data like 5 byte header for
network layer and maximum data allowed 110

bytes similar data for 2 other layers

question was to find the actual number of bytes send if the data size was
110 bytes under conditions like no

separate acknowledgement frames required, etc.

23.) there was a program given on an array of unsigned integers and i think the
answer was that the program was to find the

largest and second largest of the elements in an array.

24.) John and Jacob are assigned the tasks of writing main() and a function
funct(X,Y )in Pascal. Where will there be

conflicts between the two?

(a.) the position of main and function

(b.) the type of function

(c.) the number of times the function is called

(d.) in the paramters (i’m not sure abt the options)

25.)there was question on why h/w translation was required for memory
relocation? (pretty easy one, don’t remember the

options)

26.) to find the prefix of (a+b)*(c-d)

27.)

#include

void main()

{int i,x=4,sum=0;

int arr[6]=[1,2,3,4,5,6]

for (i=0;i<4;i++)

sum+ = func(arr);

printf("%d", sum);

}

func(int x)

{ int val,x;

val = 2;

return(x+ val++);

}

(there was another twist in the question about a static declaration in the
function, though i cannot recollect) f

decoded with two dimensional addressing?

(a.) 4

(b.) 16

(c.) 32

(d.) 64
