40 min  30 Questions
Correct ans 3 marks
Wrong ans 1 mark
There were 3 or 4 different sets of questions
This is my version of questions( this is based on only a vague memory of mine
and i would request any of the members
who attended the test and who remember, to contribute any correction or
improvisation to the questions)
1.) S –> ABAS
A –> aaA
B –> b
What is the grammar accepted by the above?
Ans> aa*b
2.)Given a string STOCK and a stack of size 4.
Which of the following strings cannot be generated using this stack.
(a) TSOCK
(b) TOSKC
(c) STOCK
(d) TKOSC
(e) None of these
3.)Where are the following variables stored
Automatic
Global
Static
(a)Heap,Stack,Heap
(b)Stack,Heap,Heap
(c)Heap,Heap,Stack
(d)None of these
Ans> (d)
4.) What is the greatest disadvantage of dynamic RAM over static RAM
Ans. capacitor needs to refresh every 2 ms.
5.) What happens when the CPU gets interrupted?
(a)Performs ISR immediately
(b)releases the memory and data bus for the interrupting process
(c)Finishes the current instruction and performs ISR
(d)gets halted
6.) The s/n id 3 dB and freq is 300hz.Find the capacity of the line.
(a)100
(b)150
(c)300
(d)200
(e) None of these

(a)1024 bytes
(b)2048 bytes
(c)4096 bytes
(d)None of these
Ans>(d)
8.)
void main()
{
int ari[] = {1,2,3,4,5};
char arc[] = {’a',’b',’c',’d',’e'};
printf(”%d %d”,&ari[4]&ari[2],&arc[3]&arc[0]);
}
Ans > 2 3
9.) Find the POS form of the expression given below
_ _ _
X.Y.Z + X.Y.Z + X.( Y + Z )
10.) The binary equivalent of 3B7F is
Ans. 0011 1011 0111 1111
11.) A microprogram can be defines as to consist of
Ans. A primitive operation
12.) A drum rotates at 4000 rpm. What is its average access time.
13.) What range of integral values can be stored using 32 bits?
14.) e=   <(ee)>  then
(a.) It is ambigous
(b.) generates all the arithemetic expressions for addition,
subtraction and multiplication
(c) It is non inherently ambigous
(d) None of the above
15.) the sorting algorithm that requires maximum comparisons when in sorted
order and minimum comparisons when in reverse
order?
(a.) straight insertion sort
(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
——–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)*(cd)
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
28.)With a 2 line x decoder and 2 line y decoder how many address lines could be
decoded with two dimensional addressing?
(a.) 4
(b.) 16
(c.) 32
(d.) 64
