Question 1 Explanation: 
8 - bit word = 00111001, Check bits = 0111. There are four bits and it's position will be 20 = 1; i.e. p1 = 1 21 = 2; i.e. p2 = 1 22 = 4; i.e. p4 = 1 23 = 8; i.e. p8 = 0. Encoded string will be: d12 = 0; d11 = 0; d10 = 1; d9 = 1; d8 = p8 = 1; d7 = 1; d6 = 0; d5 = 0; d4 = p4 = 1; d3 = 1; d2 = p2 = 1; d1 = p1 = 1. i.e. d12 = 0; d11 = 0; d10 = 1; d9 = 1; d8 = 1; d7 = 1; d6 = 0; d5 = 0; d4 = 1; d3 = 1; d2 = 1; d1 = 1. Check bits at other end = 1101. XOR(0111, 1101) = 1010. 10th bit be change. So, new encoded string will be: d12 = 0; d11 = 0; d10 = 0; d9 = 1; d8 = 1; d7 = 1; d6 = 0 d5 = 0; d4 = 1; d3 = 1; d2 = 1; d1 = 1. And the data word that was read from memory will be - 00011001. So, option (B) is correct.
Question 2
Consider a 32 - bit microprocessor, with a 16 - bit external data bus, driven by an 8 MHz input clock. Assume that this microprocessor has a bus cycle whose minimum duration equals four input clock cycles. What is the maximum data transfer rate for this microprocessor?
A
8 x 106 bytes/sec
B
4 x 106 bytes/sec
C
16 x 106 bytes/sec
D
4 x 109 bytes/sec

Question 2 Explanation: 
In a 32 - bit microprocessor, with a 16 - bit external data bus, data transfered per bus cycle = 2B. Bus clock = 8 MHz. Minimum bus cycle duration = 4 clock cycles Maximum bus cycle rate = 8 MHz / 4 = 2 M/sec Data transfer rate = bus cycle rate * data per bus cycle = 2 M * 2 = 4 * 106 B/sec. So, option (B) is correct.
Question 3
The RST 7 instruction in 8085 microprocessor is equivalent to:
A

Question 3 Explanation: 
In 8085 microprocessor interrupt and vector address are as follows:
RST 7  CALL 0038 H 
RST 6  CALL 0030 H
RST 4  CALL 0028 H
RST 3  CALL 0020 H
RST 2  CALL 0018 H
RST 1  CALL 0010 H
RST 0  CALL 0008 H 
So, option (C) is correct.
Question 4

Question 4 Explanation: 
Binary equivalent of octal no. 2550276 is 010 101 101 000 010 111 110. group them in 0 1010 1101 0000 1011 1110 1010 - A 1101 - D 0000 - 0 1011 - B 1110 - E So, option (C) is correct.
Question 5
The CPU of a system having 1 MIPS execution rate needs 4 machine cycles on an average for executing an instruction. The fifty percent of the cycles use memory bus. A memory read/ write employs one machine cycle. For execution of the programs, the system utilizes 90 percent of the CPU time. For block data transfer, an IO device is attached to the system while CPU executes the background programs continuously. What is the maximum IO data transfer rate if programmed IO data transfer technique is used?
A
500 Kbytes/sec
B
2.2 Mbytes/sec
C
125 Kbytes/sec
D
250 Kbytes/sec

Question 6 Explanation: 
With n flip - flops we can design upto Modulo 2n counter. 272 is greater than 256 i.e. 28 so we need little bit more; 29 = 512 which is greater than 272. So 9 flip - flops are sufficient to design Modulo 272 counter. Option (B) is correct.
Question 7
