Solution:   QUESTION: 5

“A common misconception among writers is that sentence structure mirrors thought; the more _________ the structure, the ted the ideas”.

Solution:

Because the second half of the sentence illustrates the idea that “structure mirrors thought,” any word that fills the blank must be similar in meaning to “convoluted.” The two words that are similar to “convoluted” are “complicated” and “involved”, which produce sentences alike in meaning. “Fanciful,” while somewhat similar in meaning to “convoluted,” is not as similar to either “complicated” or “involved” as those words are to each other. The other answer choices are not similar in meaning to “convoluted,” and thus do not produce coherent sentences.
Thus the correct answer is complicated.

Solution:  QUESTION: 7

An e-mail password must contain three characters. The password has to contain one numeral from 0 to 9, one upper case and one lower case character from the English alphabet. How many distinct passwords are possible?

Solution:

Since, there are three positions which can be filled either by upper case letter, lower case letter or a number from 0 9 −
Hence, total choices are = 26 × 26 × 10 = 6760
3 characters can be arranged in 3! ways & hence total no of password can be = 3! × 6760 = 40560

QUESTION: 8

A designer uses marbles of four different colours of his designs. The cost of each marble is the same, irrespective of the colour. The table below shows the percentage of marbles of each colour used in the current design. The cost of each marble increased by 25%. Therefore, the designer decided to reduce equal numbers of marbles of each colour to keep the total cost unchanged. What is the percentage of blue marbles in the new design? Solution:

Assume total number of marbles = 100
Blue marble = 40
Black marble = 25
Red marble = 20
Yellow marble = 15
Cost of 1 marble be Rs. 1
Cost of marbles increased = 25%
New cost of 1 marble = Rs. 1.25
Let x marbles are reduced from each type but the total cost must remain same i.e. Rs 100
Now,
1.25[(40 − x) + (25 − x) + (20 − x) + (15 − x)] = 100
125 − 5x = 100
25 = 5x
x = 5
So, now the numbers of different marbles are
Blue marble = 35
Black marble = 20
Red marble = 15
Yellow marble = 10
% blue marbles in new design QUESTION: 9

P, Q, R and S crossed a lake in a boat that can hold a maximum of two persons, with only one set of oars. The following additional facts are available
i. The boat held two persons on each of the three forward trips across lake and one person on each of the two return trips.
ii. P is unable to row when someone else is in the boat.
iii. Q is unable to row with anyone else except R.
iv. Each person rowed for at least one trip.
v. Only one person can row during a trip.
Who rowed twice?

Solution:

Since, P cannot row with anyone else so P must row while on return journey.
So, on first trip P & S leave in which S rows.
On the return trip P will row
On next trip P will leave with R and R will row & P will get down on other end.
Now R will return & row to pick Q up.
On the last trip Q & R will go in which Q will row the boat.
Hence, R rowed the boat twice

A continuous-time input signal x (t ) is an eigen function of an LTI system, if the output is

Solution:

If the output signal is a scalar multiple of input signal, the signal is refereed as an eigen function (or characteristic function) and the multiplier is referred as an eigen value (or characteristic value).
If x(t) is the eigen function and k is the eigen value, then output, y(t) = kx(t).
Hence, the correct option is (A).
