Solutions

1.(b)

VLSI was started to be used in 4th generation.

2.(c)

1000 write cycles are allowed in EEPROM. EEPROM stands for Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory and is a type of non-volatile memory used in computers and other electronic devices to store relatively small amounts of data but allowing individual bytes to be erased and reprogrammed.

3.(e)

UNIVAC is the first general purpose electronic computer.

4.(b)

Virtual Memory is the memory that appears to exist as main storage although most of it is supported by data held in secondary storage, transfer between the two being made automatically as required.

5.(a)

In 1617 a treatise in Latin titled Rabdologiae and written by John Napier was published in Edinburgh. Printed three years after his treatise on the discovery of logarithms and in the same year as his death, it describes three devices to aid arithmetic calculations.The devices themselves don’t use logarithms, rather they are tools to reduce multiplication and division of natural numbers to simple addition and subtraction operations.

  1. (a)

A repeater is an electronic device that receives a signal and retransmits it at a higher level or higher power, or onto the other side of an obstruction, so that the signal can cover longer distances.

  1. (c)

Firewall in Computer Network is a system designed to prevent unauthorized access.

  1. (e)
