“Nobody praised her ________ nature, so she decided to mend her ways to become ________.”
The words that best fill the blanks in the above sentence are
‘complaisant’ willing to please or oblige others
‘complacent’ selfsatisfied, unconcerned
Thus, the sequence in option 3 must be used to make the sentence contextually sensible.
“All the development programmes of the government have been ________ over the years by the perpetual rise in the population of the country.”
‘vitiate’ to make faulty or defective, hurt
‘ratify’ to approve and sanction formally
The sentence implies that the everincreasing population of the country is posing a hindrance to all the developmental programmes initiated by the government.
Hence, option 1 is the correct answer.
D = ABC + BCA + CAB where A, B and C are decimal digits, then D is divisible by
D = ABC + BCA + CAB
= (100 A + 10 B + C) + (100 B + 10 C + A) + (100 C + 10 A + B)
= 111 (A + B + C)
So, D is a multiple of 111.
111 is divisible by 37 but not divisible by 29. Thus, D is divisible by 37 but not divisible by 29.

A stepup chopper shown in figure is to deliver 3A
In to the 10 Ω load. The battery voltage is 12 V, L = 20 μH, C = 100 μF and chopper frequency is 50 kHz. Determine the ontime of the chopper ________ μs
Calculation:
V_{o} = I_{o}R_{L} = 3 × 10 = 30 V
V_{b} = V_{o} (1 – D)
On time = T_{ON} = DT = 0.6 × 20 × 10^{6} = 12 μs
When the transistor is switched on, current ramps up in the inductor and energy is stored.
When the transistor is switched off, the inductor voltage reverses and acts together with the battery voltage to forward bias the diode, transferring energy to the capacitor.
When the transistor is switched on again, the load current is maintained by the capacitor, energy is stored in the inductor and the cycle can start again.
The value of the load voltage is increased by increasing the duty cycle or the ontime of the transistor.
During the transistor onperiod, assuming an ideal inductor and transistor
V_{b} = V_{L} = Ldi/dt
V_{b}/s = (sL) i(s)
i(s) = V_{b}/s^{2}L
i(t) = (V_{b}/L)t = kt
Over an ontime of T_{ON}, the change of battery current will be
Δi = k T_{ON}
During the offperiod
V_{o }= V_{b} + V_{L }= V_{b} + L(di/dt) = V_{b} + L(Δi/Δt)
= V_{b} + L(V_{b}/L)T_{ON} /T_{off} = V_{b}(1 + T_{ON} /T_{off})
Let the duty cycle
D = T_{ON} T, and T_{off} = T – T_{ON} = T(1  D). Now
V_{o} = V_{b} (1 – DT/T(1 – D))
which simplifies to
V_{o} = V_{b}/(1  D)
In an ideal circuit, V_{b}I_{b }= V_{0}I_{0}. Therefore, from eq.
I_{b} = (V_{o}/V_{b})I_{b} = I_{o}/(1 – D)
I_{b} = I_{b} + Δi/2
I_{bo} = I_{b} – Δi/2
When the steady variation of battery current has been reached, the variation will be between l_{o} and I_{1}, as shown in.
