6. In a kway set associative cache, the cache is divided into v sets, each of which consists of k
lines. The lines of a set are placed in sequence one after another. The lines in set s are
sequenced before the lines in set (s+1). The main memory blocks are numbered 0 onwards.
The main memory block numbered j must be mapped to any one of the cache lines from
(A) ( ) ( ) ( ) j mod v *k to j mod v *k k 1 +

(C) ( ) ( ) ( ) j mod k to j mod k v 1 + 
(D) ( ) ( ) ( ) j mod k * v to j mod k * v v 1 + 
Answer: (A)
Exp: Position of main memory block in the cache (set) = (main memory block number) MOD
(number of sets in the cache).
As the lines in the set are placed in sequence, we can have the lines from 0 to (K – 1) in each
set.
Number of sets = v, main memory block number = j
First line of cache = (j mod v)*k; last line of cache = (j mod v)*k + (k – 1)

10. Three concurrent processes X, Y, and Z execute three different code segments that access and
update certain shared variables. Process X executes the P operation (i.e., wait) on semaphores
a, b and c; process Y executes the P operation on semaphores b, c and d; process Z executes
the P operation on semaphores c, d, and a before entering the respective code segments. After
completing the execution of its code segment, each process invokes the V operation (i.e.,
signal) on its three semaphores. All semaphores are binary semaphores initialized to one.
Which one of the following represents a deadlockfree order of invoking the P operations by
the processes?
(A) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) X : P a P b P c Y : P b P c P d Z: P c P d P a
(B) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) X : P b P a P c Y : P b P c P d Z: P a P c P d
(C) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) X : P b P a P c Y : P c P b P d Z: P a P c P d
(D) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) X : P a P b P c Y : P c P b P d Z: P c P d P a
Answer:(B)
Exp: Suppose X performs P(b) and preempts, Y gets chance, but cannot do its first wait i.e., P(b),
so waits for X, now Z gets the chance and performs P(a) and preempts, next X gets chance.
X cannot continue as wait on ‘a’ is done by Z already, so X waits for Z. At this time Z can
continue its operations as down on c and d. Once Z finishes, X can do its operations and so Y.
In any of execution order of X, Y, Z one process can continue and finish, such that waiting is
not circular. In options (A),(C) and (D) we can easily find circular wait, thus deadlock
11. An index is clustered, if
(A) it is on a set of fields that form a candidate key
(B) it is on a set of fields that include the primary key
(C) the data records of the file are organized in the same order as the data entries of the index
(D) the data records of the file are organized not in the same order as the data entries of the
index
Answer:(C)
Exp: Clustered index is built on ordering non key field and hence if the index is clustered then the
data records of the file are organized in the same order as the data entries of the index.

6. In a kway set associative cache, the cache is divided into v sets, each of which consists of k
lines. The lines of a set are placed in sequence one after another. The lines in set s are
sequenced before the lines in set (s+1). The main memory blocks are numbered 0 onwards.
The main memory block numbered j must be mapped to any one of the cache lines from
(A) ( ) ( ) ( ) j mod v *k to j mod v *k k 1 + 
(B) ( ) ( ) ( ) j mod v to j mod v k 1 + 
(C) ( ) ( ) ( ) j mod k to j mod k v 1 + 
(D) ( ) ( ) ( ) j mod k * v to j mod k * v v 1 + 
Answer: (A)
Exp: Position of main memory block in the cache (set) = (main memory block number) MOD
(number of sets in the cache).
As the lines in the set are placed in sequence, we can have the lines from 0 to (K – 1) in each
set.
Number of sets = v, main memory block number = j
First line of cache = (j mod v)*k; last line of cache = (j mod v)*k + (k – 1)

intersection and complementation
(4) RELs are closed under union & intersection but not under complementation

10. Three concurrent processes X, Y, and Z execute three different code segments that access and
update certain shared variables. Process X executes the P operation (i.e., wait) on semaphores
a, b and c; process Y executes the P operation on semaphores b, c and d; process Z executes
the P operation on semaphores c, d, and a before entering the respective code segments. After
completing the execution of its code segment, each process invokes the V operation (i.e.,
signal) on its three semaphores. All semaphores are binary semaphores initialized to one.
Which one of the following represents a deadlockfree order of invoking the P operations by
the processes?
(A) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) X : P a P b P c Y : P b P c P d Z: P c P d P a
(B) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) X : P b P a P c Y : P b P c P d Z: P a P c P d
(C) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) X : P b P a P c Y : P c P b P d Z: P a P c P d
(D) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) X : P a P b P c Y : P c P b P d Z: P c P d P a
Answer:(B)
Exp: Suppose X performs P(b) and preempts, Y gets chance, but cannot do its first wait i.e., P(b),
so waits for X, now Z gets the chance and performs P(a) and preempts, next X gets chance.
X cannot continue as wait on ‘a’ is done by Z already, so X waits for Z. At this time Z can
continue its operations as down on c and d. Once Z finishes, X can do its operations and so Y.
In any of execution order of X, Y, Z one process can continue and finish, such that waiting is
not circular. In options (A),(C) and (D) we can easily find circular wait, thus deadlock
11. An index is clustered, if
(A) it is on a set of fields that form a candidate key
(B) it is on a set of fields that include the primary key
(C) the data records of the file are organized in the same order as the data entries of the index
(D) the data records of the file are organized not in the same order as the data entries of the
index
Answer:(C)
Exp: Clustered index is built on ordering non key field and hence if the index is clustered then the
data records of the file are organized in the same order as the data entries of the index.
12. Assume that source S and destination D are connected through two intermediate routers
labeled R. Determine how many times each packet has to visit the network layer and the data
link layer during a transmission from S to D.
(A) Network layer – 4 times and Data link layer4 times
(B) Network layer – 4 times and Data link layer3 times
(C) Network layer – 4 times and Data link layer6 times
(D) Network layer – 2 times and Data link layer6 times

Answer:(C)
Exp:
From above given diagram, its early visible that packet will visit network layer 4 times, once
at each node [S, R, R, D] and packet will visit Data Link layer 6 times. One time at S and one
time at D, then two times for each intermediate router R as data link layer is used for link to
link communication.
Once at packet reaches R and goes up from physical –DLNetwork and second time when
packet coming out of router in order Network – DL Physical
13. The transport layer protocols used for real time multimedia, file transfer, DNS and
email, respectively are
(A) TCP, UDP, UDP and TCP (B) UDP, TCP, TCP and UDP
(C) UDP, TCP, UDP and TCP (D) TCP, UDP, TCP and UDP
Answer: (C)
Exp: Real time multimedia needs connectionless service, so under lying transport layer protocol
used is UDP
File transfer rums over TCP protocol with port no21
DNS runs over UDP protocol within port no53
Email needs SMTP protocol which runs over TCP protocol within port no – 25

(C) Encryption: X’s public key followed by Y’s private key; Decryption: Y’s public key
followed by X’s private key
(D) Encryption: X’s private key followed by Y’s public key; Decryption: Y’s private key
followed by X’s public key
