Choose the most appropriate pair of words from the options given below to complete the following.

Despite all the rhetoric about building a new democracy, and the ________ of bringing freedom and ________ to the country, the invasion has only resulted in increased violence and hardship.


In the sentence a word that is complementary to 'freedom' is required. Hence, 'piece' which means a portion can be eliminated. This leaves us with options 2 and 3. It can be gathered from the sentence that invasion resulted in violence and hardships though it promised positive things like democracy, peace and freedom. So all these promises were false ideas. Thus, 'illusion' best fits here, making option 2 the correct answer.

An 'allusion' is an indirect or passing reference.
E.G. The Renaissance writers alluded to literature written during the Classical Greek period.

 A point on AC in the following triangle such that ∠ADB = ∠ABC. Then BD in (cm) is


By similar triangles ΔADB and ΔABC, we get


⇒ AD/6=DB/8=6/12

⇒ DB/8=6/12

⇒ DB = 48/12 = 4 cm

∴ BD = 4 cm


The numerical value of  will be


Given expression is,

Using: 1 + tan2θ = sec2θ and 1 + cot2θ = cosec2θ

Using: cosec θ = 1/sin θ and sec θ = 1/cos θ

= sin2θ + 3 cos2θ + 2 sin2θ

= 3sin2θ + 3cos2θ

= 3(sin2θ + cos2θ)

Using: sin2θ + cos2θ = 1

= 3 × 1 = 3


An advance team of the elite special operations unit was sent to make a reconnaissance of the area before the main strike team reached the scene.

Which of the following is a statement that can be inferred from the facts stated in the above statement


The statement provided to us in the question states the fact that an initial team was sent for the reconnaissance of the target area before the main strike team. It is to be noted here that the word ‘reconnaissance’ means observation of an area to get information about it.

Now, nowhere in the sentence is there any mention of the relative training or the equipments of the two teams, neither is there any indication to asses this fact. Therefore, it is safe to eliminate options 1 and 4.

Now, the third statement indicates that the strike team could not work without the main team. There is no evidence in the sentence to point out to any such fact. It is simply stated that the initial team was sent to make reconnaissance before the main team, in order to assist them. It cannot be assumed that the job of the initial team was absolutely essential for the second team.

The second inference states that the team did not posses sufficient and complete information about the target area. This is an inference that can be safely drawn from the given statement, since if they would have had enough information, there would have been no need for an initial team.

Hence, option 2 is the correct answer.


Based on the distribution of surface area of the Earth at different elevations and depths (with reference to sea - level) shown in the figure, which of the following is FALSE?


From graph it is evident that option 1 is true.

From graph, Of the surface area above sea - level, larger proportion lies below 2 km elevation

From graph, Of the surface area below sea - level, larger proportion lies below 4 km depth.

Option 4 is true as maximum depth is 12 km and maximum elevation is 8 km.

∴ Option 3 is FALSE


Ananth takes 6 hours and Bharath takes 4 hours to read a book. Both started reading copies of the book at the same time. After how many hours is the number of pages remaining to be read by Ananth, twice that the number of pages remaining to read by Bharath? Assume Ananth and Bharath read all the pages with constant pace.


Given, Ananth takes 6 hours and Bharath takes 4 hours to read a book.

Let the number of pages of the book be n.

∴ In 1 hour, Ananth reads n/6 pages of the book while Bharath reads n/4 pages of the book.

Let after ‘t’ hours the number of pages remaining to be read by Ananth is twice that number of pages remaining to read by Bharath.

⇒ 1 – t/6 = 2 – t/2

⇒ t/3 = 1

⇒ t = 3 hours

In a group of 11 people, 5 are wearing white shirt, 5 are wearing black shirt and one is wearing red shirt. Find the number of ways they can sit around a circular table so that no two people wearing same color shirt sit together.


Number of ways 5 people can sit around round table = (5-1)! = 4!

Now 5 spots are created for other 5 people wearing black white shirt.

∴ Total ways = 4! × 5!

Now for each arrangement 10 spots are created for the person wearing Red shirt.

∴ Total ways = 4!5!10 = 28800


Find the probability of a number which is divisible by either 5 or 3 out of first 500 natural Odd Numbers.

Suppose that the maximum transmit window size for a TCP connection is 12000 bytes. Each packet consists of 2000 bytes. At some point of time, the connection is in slow-start phase with a current transmit window of 4000 bytes. Subsequently, the transmitter receives two acknowledgements. Assume that no packets are lost and there are no time-outs. What is the maximum possible value of the current transmit window? (in bytes).


In slow-start phase, for each ACK, the sender increases the current transmit window by Maximum Segment Size (MSS). As we are given a packet consists of 2000 bytes and that can be taken as MSS. So, after two ACKs, current transmit window:

= 4000 + 2000 + 2000

= 8000

The following C function takes a single-linked list of integers as a parameter and rearranges the elements of the list. The function is called with the list containing the integers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 in the given order. What will be the contents of the list after function completes execution?

struct node {

    int value;

    struct node *next;


void rearrange(struct node *list) {

    struct node *p, *q;

    int temp;

    if (!list || !list -> next) return;

    p = list; q = list -> next;

    while(q) {

        temp = p -> value; p->value =  q -> value;

        q->value = temp; p = q ->next;

        q = p? p ->next : 0;




The loop is interchanging the adjacent elements of the list.

But because of (p = q -> next;) after each interchange, next interchange starts from the unchanged elements.

1st iteration 1 2 3 4 5 6 7  ------>  2 1 3 4 5 6 7

2nd iteration 2 1 4 3 5 6 7

3rd iteration 2 1 4 3 6 5 7

p will point to 7, and q=p true, hence q = p->next = null.

Consider a relation with seven attributes ABCDEGH. The following dependencies are given .

AB -> C, AC -> B, AD -> E, B -> D, BC -> A, E -> G.

What is the key ?


AC -> B           So, (AC)+ = {A,C, B,}

B -> D               (AC)+ = {A,C, B, D}

AD -> E             (AC)+ = {A,C, B, D, E}

E -> G                (AC)+ = {A,C, B, D, E, G}

So to get H we have to include H into (AC)

So the key is ACH.


Consider a synchronous instruction pipeline with 4 stages (S1, S2, S3 & S4 ). The delay of each stages is 1.2ns, 1.3ns, 1.5ns and 2ns. The pipeline also has buffer placed between the stages. The delay for the buffer is fixed for all and requires 1ns. How much time is required to execute 10000 instructions? 


Since the pipeline is synchronous each stage will take equal delay and that delay will be 2ns (The stage taking longer time)

Since the buffer delay is 1 the first instruction will come out in 12ns

2 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 2 + 1 = 12ns

Rest 9999 instruction will be completed in every 3ns that is 9999´ 3ns = 29997ns

All page frames are initially empty, and a process is allowed three page frames in memory, and references its pages in the order 1,2,3,2,4,5,2,3,2,2,4,1,5.

If the page replacement policy is optimal replacement policy, then page faults caused by this process is,


Optimal replacement policy looks forward in time to see which frame to replace on a page fault. Thus it is not a real replacement algorithm. It gives us a reference of number of frame for a given static frame access sequence.

2     HIT (page number 2 already in memory so there is no page faults.)

2     HIT

3     HIT

2     HIT

2     HIT

5     HIT

So there are 7 page faults

Consider the following cooperating process using semaphore S and T.

Which of the following is true?


for S = 1 and T = 0 P1 will first use the resource A, B


Consider a memory is consists of 1024 frames (0 to 1023), each frame contains  64B and byte addressable. An array of size A[512][512] is stored in the memory. A[0][0] is at frame 1 byte 0. What is the address of A[60][100]?


Since the first element A [0] [0] is at frame 1 and byte 0

Before reaching A[60] [100] the array element A[60][99] element has been stored

So total 60 complete row already been stored containing 60 ´ 512 + 100 = 30820 elements

Number of blocks required is 30820/64 = 481.5625.c 

So we required total 481 complete block so address will go on 482nd block.

Assume X is a random variable representing the output of a fair dice.


Y = max (2, min (5, X))

What is the variance of Y ?


E(Y) =Σ Y.P(Y) = 3.5 


= (1.5)2(2/6) + (0.5)2(1/6) + (0.5)2(1/6) + (1.5)2(2/6) = 1.583


Consider a UNIX-like file system implemented with i-nodes that resides on a disk of size 512 GB. Each i-node has a total of 15 block addresses consisting of direct and indirect block addresses.

Suppose the implementation wants to support file size up to 1 GB using only direct block addresses and single indirect block address. At least how many of the 15 block addresses should be used as single indirect block address.


Each i-node has a total 15 block addresses which means 15 bit block addresses.
So each i-node size = (2^15)B.

total no. of i-node = Total Size / I-node Size

= 512 GB/ (2^15)B

= (2^39)/(2^15)

= 2^24

i.e. 24’ bits are required to address the entire disk space -> 3 bytes
Block Entry Size = 3 Bytes

the number of i-node or blocks required for 1 GB file

= File Size/ I-node Size

= 1 GB/ (2^15)B

= (2^30)/(2^15)


size required to address 2^15 blocks = No_of_blocks * Block_Entry_Size = (2^15)*3 Bytes

size required to address 1 block:

= (2^15)*3 / (2^15) = 3 block addresses


Consider the below grammar

S →  AaB

A →  ab | a

B →  b

The above grammar is


It is not LR(0), but SLR(1), CLR(1).


Match the following :




A cache aware sorting algorithm sorts an array of size 2k with each key of size 4 Bytes. The size of the cache memory is 128 Bytes and algorithm is the combination of merge sort and insertion sort to exploit the locality of reference for the cache memory(i.e. will use insertion sort when problem size equals cache memory).

Worst case running time of the algorithm is:


It will use merge sort at upper level and when size of the subarray will reach the size of the cache memory if will start to use Insertion sort,

∵ cache can hold 32 keys

∴ Merge sort in worst case will take time = height × number of elements in the array

= log2(k-5)× 2k

After that insertion sort will take (25)for each node


Consider the languages L1={0m1m0n|m,n>0}, L2={0m1n0n|m,n>0} and L = L1 ∪ L2 over the alphabet {0,1}. Which of the following statements is/are true?

I. L is unambiguous.

II. L is inherently ambiguous.

III. L can be recognized by a PDA..

IV. L can be recognized by a DPDA.


L1 and L2 are context free languages. Hence, L is also context free, recognized by some

push-down automaton, because CFL's are closed under Union.

The subset {0n1n0n|n⟩0} of L is the set of strings that has two distinct derivations:

one coming from L1, and the other coming from L2. It turns out that every grammar

that describes L will remain ambiguous for at least some strings of the form 0n0n0n 

Hence, L is inherently ambiguous.

Determine the size of the ROM of required to implement the following –

F(A,B,C) = ∑m(1,2,4,7)

F2(A,B,C) = 



⇒ Size of ROM =2X×y 

Where x = no. of inputs

y = no. of outputs

⇒ Size = 23 × 2 = 16
