Question 11 
The result is head  
The result is tail
 
If the person is of Type 2, then the result is tail  
If the person is of Type 1, then the result is tail 
Question 11 Explanation:
We do not know the type of person from whom those words are coming from and so we can have two cases.
Case 1:
The person who speaks truth. This definitely implies that result of toss is Head.
Case 2:
The person who lies. In this the reality will be the negation of the statement.
The negation of (x⇔y) is exactly one of x or y holds. "The result of the toss is head if and only if I am telling the truth". So here two possibilities are there,
→ It is head and lie spoken.
→ It is not head and truth spoken.
Clearly, the second one cannot speaks the truth. So finally it is head.
Hence, option (A).

100/100 = w/(1+2a) ⇒ w = 1+2a
⇒ 2^{(n1)} = 1+2(100)
⇒ 2^{n}  1 = 201
⇒ 2^{n} = 202 ⇒ 2^{n} = 2^{8}
⇒ n = 8

Question 47 Explanation:
Minimum average latency is based on an advanced concept in pipelining.
S1 is needed at time 1 and 5, so its forbidden latency is 51 = 4.
S2 is needed at time 2 and 4, so its forbidden latency is 42 = 2.
So, forbidden latency = (2,4,0) (0 by default is forbidden)
Allowed latency = (1,3,5) (any value more than 5 also).
Collision vector (4,3,2,1,0) = 10101 which is the initial state as well.
From initial state we can have a transition after "1" or "3" cycles and we reach new states with collision vectors
(10101 >> 1 + 10101 = 11111) and (10101 >> 3 + 10101 = 10111) respectively.
These 2 becomes states 2 and 3 respectively.
For "5" cycles we come back to state 1 itself.
From state 2 (11111), the new collision vector is 11111.
We can have a transition only when we see first 0 from right.
So, here it happens on 5th cycle only which goes to initial state. (Any transition after 5 or more cycles goes to initial state as we have 5 time slices).
From state 3 (10111), the new collision vector is 10111.
So, we can have a transition on 3, which will give (10111 >> 3 + 10101 = 10111) third state itself. For 5, we get the initial state.
Thus all the transitions are complete. State\Time 1 3 5 1 (10101) 2 3 1 2 (11111)   1 3 (10111)  3 1 So, minimum length cycle is of length 3 either from 33 or from 13. So the minimum average latency is also 3.
S1 is needed at time 1 and 5, so its forbidden latency is 51 = 4.
S2 is needed at time 2 and 4, so its forbidden latency is 42 = 2.
So, forbidden latency = (2,4,0) (0 by default is forbidden)
Allowed latency = (1,3,5) (any value more than 5 also).

Thus all the transitions are complete. State\Time 1 3 5 1 (10101) 2 3 1 2 (11111)   1 3 (10111)  3 1 So, minimum length cycle is of length 3 either from 33 or from 13. So the minimum average latency is also 3.
Question 48 
In the network 200.10.11.144/27, the fourth octet (in decimal) of the last IP address of the network which can be assigned to a host is ____________.
158  
157  
156  
155 
Question 48 Explanation:
No. of bit in HID part = 3227 = 5 bits
Subnet mask is 255.255.255.224
Do AND with given IP and subnet mask then we get NID 200.10.11.128
In fourth octet first three bit will fixed for subnet and remaining 5 bits is for HID, so maximum value as 11111.
The address with all 1s in host part is broadcast address and can't be assigned to a host.
So the maximum possible last octal in a host IP is 10011110 which is 158.
Subnet mask is 255.255.255.224
Do AND with given IP and subnet mask then we get NID 200.10.11.128
In fourth octet first three bit will fixed for subnet and remaining 5 bits is for HID, so maximum value as 11111.
The address with all 1s in host part is broadcast address and can't be assigned to a host.
So the maximum possible last octal in a host IP is 10011110 which is 158.
Question 49 
L_{1} and L_{2} only  
L_{1} and L_{3} only  
L_{2} and L_{3} only  
L_{3} only 
Question 49 Explanation:
L_{1}: First push all the a's in the stack then push all the b's in the stack. Now pop all the b's from the stack watching next no. of a's. And then pop all the a's from the stack watching next no. of b's. So can be done by PDA, hence CFL.
L_{2}: First push all the a's in the stack then push all the b's in the stack. Now again a's come which cannot be compared by previous a's in the stack because at top of the stack's there are b's which is also needed to be pushed for further comparision with the next b's. So not CFL.
L_{3}: First simply read one 'a', then push one 'a' in the stack after reading two a's and then pop all the a's by reading the b's. Since can be done by PDA hence CFL.

Question 50 Explanation:
j = 2*3 / 4+2.0 / 5+8 / 5;
= 6 / 4+2.0 / 5+1;
= 1 + 0.4 + 1
= 2.4
But since j is integer,
j=2
Now,
k = k  (j)
k = 0  (1) = 1
When i=0, i+k = 1,
printf executed 1 time
When i=1, i+k = 0,
printf executed 1 time
When i=2, i+k = 1,
printf executed 3 times
When i=3, i+k = 2,
printf executed 3 times
When i=4, i+k = 3,
printf executed 2 times
∴ Total no. of times printf executed is,
1 + 1 + 3 + 3 + 2 = 10
= 6 / 4+2.0 / 5+1;
= 1 + 0.4 + 1
= 2.4
But since j is integer,
j=2
Now,
k = k  (j)
k = 0  (1) = 1
When i=0, i+k = 1,
printf executed 1 time
When i=1, i+k = 0,
printf executed 1 time
When i=2, i+k = 1,
printf executed 3 times
When i=3, i+k = 2,
printf executed 3 times
When i=4, i+k = 3,
printf executed 2 times
∴ Total no. of times printf executed is,
1 + 1 + 3 + 3 + 2 = 10

Question 51 Explanation:
x = x + f1( ) + f2( ) + f3( ) + f4( )
f1( ) = 25 + 1 = 26
f2( ) = 50 + 1 = 51
f3( ) = 10 × 10 = 100
f2( ) = 51 × 1 = 52 (Since here x is static variable so old value retains)
∴ x = 1+26+51+100+52 = 230
f1( ) = 25 + 1 = 26
f2( ) = 50 + 1 = 51
f3( ) = 10 × 10 = 100
f2( ) = 51 × 1 = 52 (Since here x is static variable so old value retains)
∴ x = 1+26+51+100+52 = 230

Question 53 
Two hosts are connected via a packet switch with 10^{7} bits per second links. Each link has a propagation delay of 20 microseconds. The switch begins forwarding a packet 35 microseconds after it receives the same. If 10000 bits of data are to be transmitted between the two hosts using a packet size of 5000 bits, the time elapsed between the transmission of the first bit of data and the reception of the last bit of the data in microseconds is _______.
(1575)  
(1576)  
(1577)  
(1578) 
Question 53 Explanation:
Given that there is a single switch between the source and destination.
Bandwidth of the each link is 10^{7} bits/sec.
Given that propagation delay between host to switch and switch to host is same i.e. 20 microseconds.
Given that 35 microseconds of buffering time is required by the switch.
Total data we need to send is 10000 bits.
Given that packet size is 5000 bits.
Number of packets we need to send is 10000/5000 = 2 packets.
Total time for the first packet to reach from source to switch = Transmission time + propagation time
Transmission time=(5000 bits)/(10^{7} bits/sec)=500 microseconds
Total time between source to switch is = 500 + 20 = 520 microseconds
Time required for the packet to reach from switch to destination is = Buffer time+Transmission time + propagation time = 35 + 500 + 20 = 555 microseconds.
Total time required for the first packet to reach to destination from the source = 520 + 555 =1075 microseconds.
While transferring first packet from switch to destination source starts sending of it's second packet to switch, that means from 1055 microsecond on wards transmission of 2nd packet is started by the source.
By the time first packet is reached to the destination 2nd packet is completely available at the switch.
Time required for the 2nd packet to reach to the destination from the switch is
= transmission time + propagation time = 500+20 = 520 microseconds
Therefore total time required for the two packets to reach to destination from the source = 1055+ 520 = 1575 microseconds.
Bandwidth of the each link is 10^{7} bits/sec.

Total time for the first packet to reach from source to switch = Transmission time + propagation time
Transmission time=(5000 bits)/(10^{7} bits/sec)=500 microseconds
Total time between source to switch is = 500 + 20 = 520 microseconds
Time required for the packet to reach from switch to destination is = Buffer time+Transmission time + propagation time = 35 + 500 + 20 = 555 microseconds.
Total time required for the first packet to reach to destination from the source = 520 + 555 =1075 microseconds.

Question 54 
Let R be a relation on the set of ordered pairs of positive integers such that ((p,q),(r,s)) ∈ R if and only if p  s = q  r. Which one of the following is true about R?
Both reflexive and symmetric  
Reflexive but not symmetric  
Not reflexive but symmetric  
Neither reflexive nor symmetric 
Question 54 Explanation:
Since pq ≠ qp
∴(p,q) R (p,q)
⇒ R is not reflexive.
Let (p,q) R (r,s) then ps = qr
⇒ rq = sp
⇒ (r,s) R (p,q)
⇒ R is symmetric.
∴(p,q) R (p,q)
⇒ R is not reflexive.
Let (p,q) R (r,s) then ps = qr
⇒ rq = sp
⇒ (r,s) R (p,q)
⇒ R is symmetric.
