Question 1 |

A bag contains 10 blue marbles, 20 green marbles and 30 red marbles. A marble is drawn from the bag, its colour recorded and it is put back in the bag. This process is repeated 3 times. The probability that no two of the marbles drawn have the same colour is

1/36 | |

1/6 | |

1/4 | |

1/3 |

Question 1 Explanation:

As number of colors is 3,Possible combinations -> 3! = 6
Probability of Blue marble: 10/60
Probability of Green marble: 20/60
Probability of Red marble: 30/60
Probability that no two of the marbles drawn have the same colour is = 6 * (10/60 * 20/60 * 30/60) = 1/6

**Therefore B is the Answer**Question 2 |

If the trapezoidal method is used to evaluate the integral obtained

_{0}∫^{1}x^{2}dx ,then the value obtainedis always > (1/3) | |

is always < (1/3) | |

is always = (1/3) | |

may be greater or lesser than (1/3) |

Question 3 Explanation:

Matrices don’t have value associated with them, but determinant have value associated with them. Determinant of a matrix can be find out by taking any one row or one column, in this row or column, multiplying each element with its cofactor and summing the value up.

Let L be a regular language and M be a context-free language, both over the alphabet Σ. Let Lc and Mc denote the complements of L and M respectively. Which of the following statements about the language Lc∪ Mc is TRUE

It is necessarily regular but not necessarily context-free | |

It is necessarily context-free. | |

It is necessarily non-regular. | |

None of the above |

Question 4 Explanation:

**Proposition:**L is a regular language M is a context free language

**Derivation:**L_c union M_c = complement{L intersection M} Now, L intersection M is a CFL according to closure laws of CFLs, i.e. intersection of a CFL with RL is always a CFL. But, complement{L intersection M} might not be a CFL because complement over CFL doesn't guarantee a CFL. It can even be a RL or it might even lie outside the CFL circle. It will be a context-sensitive language certainly, but nothing else can be said about it. Conclusion: Considering the above derivation, none of the statements are true. Hence correct answer would be (D) None of the above.

Question 5 Explanation:

First of all,

**A string can never be infinite**because String is a finite sequence of symbols over Σ So option (c) and (d) are eliminated. And because of star(*) it can generate infinite set. So**Option (B) is CORRECT.**This solution is contributed by**Abhishek Agrawal**.Question 6 |

The language {0

Question 6 Explanation:

The value of ‘n’ is finite. So, only finite number of strings can be part of given language. Therefore, we can construct a finite state automata for this language.

Thus, option (A) is correct.

Question 7 Explanation:

(A ⊕ B) ⊕ C By Solving, We get = (A ⊕ B)′ C + (A ⊕ B) C′ The above expression can be written as: = (A ⊙ B) C + (A ⊕ B) C′ Now, = (AB + A′B′) C + (A ⊕ B) C′ = ABC + A′B′C + AB′C′ + A′BC′ [As: X + X = X] [So, A′B′C + A′B′C = A′B′C] = ABC + (A′B′C + A′B′C) + AB′C′ + A′BC′ This can be written as: = ABC + A′ (B ⊕ C) + B′ (A ⊕ C)This explanation has been provided by

Using Booth's Algorithm for multiplication, the multiplier -57 will be recoded as

0 -1 0 0 1 0 0 -1 | |

1 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 | |

0 1 0 0 -1 0 0 1 |

Question 8 Explanation:

Booth's algorithm: first take 2's complement of given number if number is negative, then append 0 into LSB.

Then, for each pair from LSB to MSB (add 1 bit at a time): 00 = 0, 01 = +1, 10 = -1, 11 = 0Therefore, given number in signed representation (2's complementation) of -57

= 2's complement of (00111001) = 11000110+1 = 11000111 = append 0 into LSB of (11000111) = 110001110 Now Booth's code (add 1 bit at a time, from LSB to MSB): = 11, 10, 00, 00, 01, 11, 11, 10 = 0 -1 0 0 1 0 0 -1

**Alternative way -**You can calculated decimal values in given options: (A) 0 -1 0 0 1 0 0 -1 = 0*(2^6) -1*(2^6) + 0*(2^5) + 0*(2^4) + 1*(2^3) + 0*(2^2) + 0*(2^1) -1*(2^0) = -2^6 + 2^3 - 2^0 = -64 +8 -1 = -57 (B) 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 = 2^7 + 2^6 + 2^2 2^1 + 2^0 = 199 (C) 0 -1 0 0 1 0 0 0 = -2^6 + 2^3 = -56 (D) 0 1 0 0 -1 0 0 1 = 2^6 - 2^3 + 2^0 = 57 So, option (A) is correct.Question 9 |

A dynamic RAM has a memory cycle time of 64 nsec. It has to be refreshed 100 times per msec and each refresh takes 100 nsec. What percentage of the memory cycle time is used for refreshing?

Question 9 Explanation:

Memory cycle time = 64 ns Memory is refreshed 100 times per msec.

Number of refreshes in 1 memory cycle (i.e in 64 ns) = (100 * 64 * 10

^{-9}) / 10

^{-3}= 64 * 10

^{-4}.

Time taken for each refresh = 100 ns Time taken for 64 * 10

^{-4}refreshes = 64 * 10

^{-4}* 100 * 10

^{-9}sec = 64 * 10

^{-11}sec.

Percentage of the memory cycle time used for refreshing : = (Time taken to refresh in 1 memory cycle / Total time) * 100 = (64 * 10

^{-11}/ 64 * 10

^{-9}) * 100 = 1 %

Thus, option (C) is correct.
