?ECPaper CodeB? GATE 2011
(A) two or more of the inputs P,Q,R are ‘0’
(B) two or more of the inputs P,Q,R are ‘1’
(C) any odd number of the inputs P,Q,R is ‘0’
(D) any odd number of the inputs P,Q,R is ‘1’
Answer:  (B)
Exp:  The output Y expression in the Ckt
Y PQ PR RQ = + +
So that two or more inputs are ‘1’, Y is always ‘1’.

9. Drift current in the semiconductors depends upon
(A) only the electric field
(B) only the carrier concentration gradient
(C) both the electric field and the carrier concentration
(D) both the electric field and the carrier concentration gradient
Answer:  (C)
Exp:  Drift current,J E = s
( )
n P
J n p qE = µ + µ
So that it depends on carrier concentration and electric field.

10. A Zener diode, when used in voltage stabilization circuits, is biased in
(A) reverse bias region below the breakdown voltage
(B) reverse breakdown region
(C) forward bias region
(D) forward bias constant current mode
Answer:  (B)
Exp: 
For Zener diode
Voltage remains constant in break down region and current carrying capacity in
high.

mode of the wave does not exist
(B) The TE
10
mode of the wave does not exist
(C) The TM
