SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans. (c)

Sol. Small Signal FET drain resistance varies with applied gate-source voltage V_GS and so FET acts like a Voltage Variable Resistor.

S2. Ans.(b)

Sol. Given:

Resistance corresponding to the MSB = 2kΩ

Number of bits(n) = 8

We know that, Resistance corresponding to LSB is

R_LSB=R_MSB×2^(n-1)

⇒ R_LSB = 2 × 2^(8-1)

⇒ R_LSB = 2^8 kΩ

So, R_LSB = 256 kΩ

S3. Ans.(a)

Sol. According to the property of Impulse response –

𝛿(t – a)* 𝛿(t – b) = 𝛿(t – a – b)

Here, When the system is cascaded, the overall impulse response is –

⇒ 𝛿(t – 0.5)* 𝛿(t – 0.5) = 𝛿(t – 0.5 – 0.5)

So, 𝛿(t – 0.5)* 𝛿(t – 0.5) = 𝛿(t – 1)

S4. Ans. (d)

Sol. Given:

V = 12 volts

C = 1 μF = 10^(-6) F

We know that Energy stored in the capacitor is

⇒ W =1/2 CV^2

⇒ W = 1/2 × 12^2 × 10^(-6) J

⇒ W = 1/2 × 144 × 10^(-6) J

So, W = 72 × 10^(-6) J

S5. Ans.(c)

Sol. A thyristor is a solid-state semiconductor device having four layers. P- and N-type materials are arranged alternately. It acts exclusively as a bistable switch, conducting when the gate receives a current trigger, and continuing to conduct until the voltage across the device is reversed biased, or until the voltage is removed (by some other means). Thyristor also called SCR is a unidirectional device i.e. Unilateral. It has three modes of operation. Those are-

1. Forward conduction mode

2. Forward blocking mode

3. Reverse blocking mode

First two are stable states so, it is called Bistable.

S6. Ans.(d)

Sol. BIOS is present in the ROM chip of Personal Computer. It is a firmware which initialize the booting process when the system is turned ON.

S7. Ans (b)

Sol. De-emphasis means attenuating those frequencies by the amount by which they are boosted. It will be done in the receiver side after demodulation i.e., after detection.

S8. Ans.(d)

Sol. In Time Scaling,

x(at) ↔┴( F.T ) 1/|a| X(f/a)

S9. Ans.(a)

S10. Ans.(c)

Sol. The standard format of MAC contains 48 bits. Each 4 bits is represented in hexadecimal format i.e. 12 hexadecimal numbers in group, each contains 2 hexadecimal number and each separated by : or – or ;

So, 01 : A5 : BB : A7 : FF : 60 is a MAC address.
