Consider three CPU intensive processes, which require 10, 20, 30 units and arrive at times 0, 2, 6 respectively. How many context switches are needed if shortest remaining time first is implemented? Context switch at 0 is included but context switch at end is ignored
(A) 1
(B) 2
(C) 3
(D) 4


Answer: (C)

Explanation: Let three process be P0, P1 and P2 with arrival times 0, 2 and 6 respectively and CPU burst times 10, 20 and 30 respectively. At time 0, P0 is the only available process so it runs. At time 2, P1 arrives, but P0 has the shortest remaining time, so it continues. At time 6, P2 also arrives, but P0 still has the shortest remaining time, so it continues. At time 10, P1 is scheduled as it is the shortest remaining time process. At time 30, P2 is scheduled.

So option (c) is correct.
