Exp:- Let the three pegs be A,B and C, the goal is to move n pegs from A to C using peg B
The following sequence of steps are executed recursively
1.move n-1 discs from A to B. This leaves disc n alone on peg A --- T(n-1)

clause
S : Not all attributes used in the GROUP BY clause need to appear in the
SELECT clause
(A) P and R (B) P and S (C) Q and R (D) Q and S
Exp:-  If we use a HAVING clause without a GROUP BY clause, the HAVING condition applies to
all rows that satisfy the search condition. In other words, all rows that satisfy the search
condition make up a single group. So, option P is true and Q is  false.

12. Given the basic ER and relational models, which of the following is INCORRECT?
(A)  An attribute of an entity can have more than one value
(B)  An attribute of an entity can be composite
(C)  In a row of a relational table, an attribute can have more than one value
(D)  In a row of a relational table, an attribute can have exactly one value or a NULL value
Exp:-  The term ‘entity’ belongs to ER model and the term ‘relational table’ belongs to relational
model.
Options A and B both are true since ER model supports both multivalued and composite
attributes.
As multivalued attributes are not allowed in relational databases, in a row of a relational
(table), an attribute cannot have more than one value.

Exp:- We have the relation V-E+F=2, by this we will get the total number of faces,

F = 7. Out of 7 faces one is an unbounded face, so total 6 bounded faces.
10. The recurrence relation capturing the optimal execution time of the Towers of Hanoi problem
with n discs is
(A) ( ) ( ) T n 2T n 2 2 = - +  (B) ( ) ( ) T n 2T n 1 n = - +
(C) ( ) ( ) T n 2T n / 2 1 = +  (D) ( ) ( ) T n 2T n 1 1 = - +
Exp:- Let the three pegs be A,B and C, the goal is to move n pegs from A to C using peg B
The following sequence of steps are executed recursively
1.move n-1 discs from A to B. This leaves disc n alone on peg A --- T(n-1)
2.move disc n from A to C---------1
3.move n-1 discs from B to C so they sit on disc n----- T(n-1)
So, T(n) = 2T(n-1) +1

11. Which of the following statements are TRUE about an SQL query?
P :  An SQL query can contain a HAVING clause even if it does not have a
GROUP BY clause
Q :  An SQL query can contain a HAVING clause only if it has GROUP BY
clause
R :  All attributes used in the GROUP BY clause must appear in the SELECT
clause
S : Not all attributes used in the GROUP BY clause need to appear in the
SELECT clause
(A) P and R (B) P and S (C) Q and R (D) Q and S
Exp:-  If we use a HAVING clause without a GROUP BY clause, the HAVING condition applies to
all rows that satisfy the search condition. In other words, all rows that satisfy the search
condition make up a single group. So, option P is true and Q is  false.

S is also true as an example consider the following table and query.
Id Name
1 Ramesh
2 Ramesh
3 Rajesh
4 Suresh
Select count (*)
From student
Group by Name

Output will be

Count (*)

12. Given the basic ER and relational models, which of the following is INCORRECT?
(A)  An attribute of an entity can have more than one value
(B)  An attribute of an entity can be composite
(C)  In a row of a relational table, an attribute can have more than one value
(D)  In a row of a relational table, an attribute can have exactly one value or a NULL value
Exp:-  The term ‘entity’ belongs to ER model and the term ‘relational table’ belongs to relational
model.
Options A and B both are true since ER model supports both multivalued and composite
attributes.
As multivalued attributes are not allowed in relational databases, in a row of a relational
(table), an attribute cannot have more than one value.

13. What is the complement of the language accepted by the NFA show below?
Assume {a} and S= e is the empty string.

(A) Ø (B) { } e (C) a * (D) { } a,e
Exp:- Language accepted by NFA is a
+
, so complement of this language is {?}

14. What is the correct translation of the following statement into mathematical logic?
“Some real numbers are rational”
(A) ( ) ( ) ( )
x real x v rational x ? (B) ( ) ( ) ( )
x real x rational x ? ?
(C) ( ) ( ) ( )
x real x rational x ? ? (D) ( ) ( ) ( )
x rational x real x ? ?
Exp:- Option A:  There exists x which is either real or rational and can be both.
Option B: All real numbers are rational
Option C: There exists a real number which is rational.
Option D: There exists some number which is not rational or which is real.

15. Let A be the 2 x 2 matrix with elements a

16. The protocol data unit (PDU) for the application layer in the Internet stack is
(A) Segment (B) Datagram (C) Message (D) Frame
Exp:- The PDU for Datalink layer, Network layer , Transport layer and Application layer are frame,
datagram, segment and message respectively.

17. Consider the function f(x) = sin(x) in the interval [ ] x / 4,7 / 4 ? p p . The number and location
(s) of the local minima of this function are
(A) One, at / 2 p   (B) One, at 3 / 2 p
(C) Two, at / 2 p and 3 / 2 p (D) Two, at / 4and3 / 2 p p
