Question 1 
Which of the following is an interrupt according to temporal relationship with system clock?
Maskable interrupt  
Periodic interrupt  
Division by zero  
Synchronous interrupt 
Question 1 Explanation:
Synchronous interrupts are produced by the CPU control unit while executing instructions and are called synchronous because the control unit issues them only after terminating the execution of an instruction.
This interrupt according to temporal relationship with system clock.
Asynchronous interrupts are generated by other hardware devices at arbitrary times with respect to the CPU clock signals..
Maskable Interrupts  Those interrupts whose request can be denied by microprocessor.
eg RST 1, RST2, RST 5, RST 6.5 etc..
Non maskable Interrupts  Interrupts whose request cannot be denied. eg RST 4.5 or TRAP ,RESET IN.
. Periodic interrupts to cause a software task to be executed on a periodic basis.

For even no. of a’s finite automata can be constructed so it is regular.
Option (B):
L = { a^{2}, a^{3}, a^{5}, a^{7}, a^{11}, a^{13}, a^{17}...................}
It is not regular language. A language is regular if the difference between two consecutive strings is same or we can say the language is in AP(arithmetic progression). But here if you see the difference between two consecutive strings/terms is not same. Hence it is not regular.
Statement (C):
L = {ab, aabb, ................... abab, baba, ababa, aababa, baabb, ..................}
It is also not regular language because the difference between two consecutive strings/terms is not same.

Question 20 
Consider the languages L1 = φ and L2 = {1}. Which one of the following represents L*_{1}∪ L*_{1} L*_{2} ?
{∈}  
{∈, 1}  
ϕ  
1* 
Question 20 Explanation:
As we know, for any regular expression R,
Rϕ = ϕR=ϕ
So L_{1} L_{2} * = ϕ
and L_{1} * = {ϕ}* = {ϵ}
So L_{1}L_{2}* ∪ L_{1}* = {ϵ}
Rϕ = ϕR=ϕ
So L_{1} L_{2} * = ϕ
and L_{1} * = {ϕ}* = {ϵ}
So L_{1}L_{2}* ∪ L_{1}* = {ϵ}

Both (A) and (B) are true.  
(A) is true, (B) is false.  
(A) is false, (B) is true. 
Question 21 Explanation:
be closed under intersection but if a language is not closing under either of union or complementation then it can or can not be closed under intersection.
So here, Statement (A) is true because regular language, context sensitive language and recursive language are closed under union and complementation and they are also closing under intersection but recursive enumerable language is closed under union but not under complementation but still it is closed under intersection.
Statement (B): The meaning of given statement is that if a class of languages that is closed under union and intersection then it has to be closed under complementation but if a language is not closing under either of union or intersection then it can or can not be closed under complementation.
So here, Statement (B) is false because regular language, context sensitive language, recursive language and recursively enumerable language are closed under union and intersection but only regular language, context sensitive language and recursive language are closed under complementation , recursively enumerable language is not closing under complementation after being closed under union and intersection.
Hence statement (B) is not true.
So here, Statement (A) is true because regular language, context sensitive language and recursive language are closed under union and complementation and they are also closing under intersection but recursive enumerable language is closed under union but not under complementation but still it is closed under intersection.
Statement (B): The meaning of given statement is that if a class of languages that is closed under union and intersection then it has to be closed under complementation but if a language is not closing under either of union or intersection then it can or can not be closed under complementation.
So here, Statement (B) is false because regular language, context sensitive language, recursive language and recursively enumerable language are closed under union and intersection but only regular language, context sensitive language and recursive language are closed under complementation , recursively enumerable language is not closing under complementation after being closed under union and intersection.
Hence statement (B) is not true.
Question 22 
Let G = (V, T, S, P) be a contextfree grammar such that every one of its productions is of the form A → v, with v = K > 1. The derivation tree for any W ∈ L(G) has a height h such that
log_{K}W ≤ h ≤ log_{K}((W1) / k1)  
log_{K}W ≤ h ≤ log_{K}(KW)  
log_{K}W ≤ h ≤ K log_{K}W  
log_{K}W ≤ h ≤ ((W1) / k1) 
Question 22 Explanation:
Min height of any tree is log_k W
For max height (since k>1, consider k=2) , hence it is CNF form and in CNF height is log_2 (W+1)
so in general it should be log_k ((w1) / (k1))
For max height (since k>1, consider k=2) , hence it is CNF form and in CNF height is log_2 (W+1)
so in general it should be log_k ((w1) / (k1))
Question 23 
Given the following two languages :
L_{1} = {a^{n} b^{n}  n ≥ 0, n ≠ 100}
L_{2 }= {w ∈ {a, b, c}* n_{a}(w) = n_{b}(w) = n_{c}(w)}
Which of the following options is correct ?
Both L_{1} and L_{2} are not context free language  
Both L_{1} and L_{2} are context free language.  
L_{1} is context free language, L_{2} is not context free language.  
L_{1} is not context free language, L_{2} is context free language. 
Question 23 Explanation:
Statement 1: L1 is a context free language because we can easily construct a pushdown automata which can push all a's onto the top of stack and then when b's comes as input for each "b" one "a" will be popped up. If number of a's is equal to number of b's then final stage is reached and string is accepted except the case when 100th "b" came as input we can go to a non final state and if after that any "b" came as input then the transaction can take place to a final state according to the equal number of b's and a's else we remain on that nonfinal state. So in this way a pushdown automata can be constructed for given language.
Hence L1 is a context free language.
Statement 2: L2 is not a context free language because we can push a's on the top of stack and when b's came as input we can pop one "a" for each "b" so in this way stack will get empty before comparing equal number of a, b and c. For comparing number of "c" the will be no "a or b" on the top of stack.
Hence L2 is not a context free language.
Hence L1 is a context free language.
Statement 2: L2 is not a context free language because we can push a's on the top of stack and when b's came as input we can pop one "a" for each "b" so in this way stack will get empty before comparing equal number of a, b and c. For comparing number of "c" the will be no "a or b" on the top of stack.
Hence L2 is not a context free language.

Question 24 Explanation:
If k=2, 24 + 32 × 2 = 24 + 64 = 88
Each iteration:
h(2) = 2h(1) + 4h(0) = 2 + 4k
h(3) = 2h(2) + 4h(1) = 4 + 8k + 4 = 8 + 8k
h(4) = 2h(3) + 4h(2) = 16 + 16k + 8 +16k = 32k + 24 = 88 (if k=2)
Each iteration:
h(2) = 2h(1) + 4h(0) = 2 + 4k
h(3) = 2h(2) + 4h(1) = 4 + 8k + 4 = 8 + 8k
h(4) = 2h(3) + 4h(2) = 16 + 16k + 8 +16k = 32k + 24 = 88 (if k=2)

→ The above recurrence is not in the form of Masters theorem. It doesn't apply since f(n)=n/logn is n polynomially smaller than n^{log(base 2) 2e} for any epsilon>0.
We can apply after converting into n/logn as n*log^{1}n
2T(n/2)+n/logn is by taking a=2,b=2 ,k=1 ,p=1
T(n) = Θ(n^{log(base 2)2} log log n)
= O(n lg lg n)

Question 57 Explanation:
In Artificial Intelligence (AI), Sequence of levels is present in the planning graph.
→ A planning graph consists of a sequence of levels that correspond to time steps in the LEVELS plan, where level 0 is the initial state.
→ Each level contains a set of literals and a set of actions.
→ The literals are all those that could be true at that time step, depending on the actions executed at preceding time steps.
→ The actions are all those actions that could have their preconditions satisﬁed at that time step, depending on which of the literals actually hold.
→ The planning graph records only a restricted subset of the possible negative interactions among actions i.e.., it might be optimistic about the minimum number of time steps required for a literal to become true.
→ This number of steps in the planning graph provides a good estimate of how difﬁcult it is to achieve a given literal from the initial state.
→ The planning graph is deﬁned in such a way that it can be constructed very efﬁciently.
→ Planning graphs work only for propositional planning problemsones with no variables.

Question 62 
Which of the following pairs have different expressive power?
Singletapeturing machine and multidimensional turing machine.  
Multitape turing machine and multidimensional turing machine.  
Deterministic pushdown automata and nondeterministic pushdown automata.  
Deterministic finite automata and Nondeterministic finite automata 
Question 62 Explanation:
Option(A): It is incorrect option because using multidimensional turing machine we can speed up the process of accepting the language but it does not mean that Singletapeturing machine can't accept the string that multidimensional turing machine accepts.
Option(B): is also incorrect because both machines are same so they can accept the same string with same speed.
Option(C) : It is correct option because Non deterministic pushdown automata is more powerful than deterministic pushdown automata because by using nondeterministic pushdown automata L= {ww  w belongs to (a,b)*} can be accepted but the same language can't be accepted using deterministic pushdown automata.
Option(D) : it is incorrect option because DFA and NDFA both are equivalent to each other i.e. we can convert DFA into NFA and NFA into DFA. DFA and NFA are equal in powers and can accept the same strings.
Option(B): is also incorrect because both machines are same so they can accept the same string with same speed.
Option(C) : It is correct option because Non deterministic pushdown automata is more powerful than deterministic pushdown automata because by using nondeterministic pushdown automata L= {ww  w belongs to (a,b)*} can be accepted but the same language can't be accepted using deterministic pushdown automata.

Question 63 
Which of the following statements is false?
Every contextsensitive language is recursive.  
The set of all languages that are not recursively enumerable is countable.  
The family of recursively enumerable languages is closed under union.  
The families of recursively enumerable and recursive languages are closed under reversal. 
Question 63 Explanation:
Option(A) : it is correct option because L= {a^{n} b^{n} c^{n}} is a context sensitive language and it can also be accepted by the turing machine. Hence every CSL also recursive language.
Option(B): It is incorrect option.
Option(C): Yes it is true that recursively enumerable languages are closed under union.
Option(D): It is a correct option because recursively enumerable and recursive languages are closed under reversal.
NOTE: The difference between recursive and recursively enumerable language is that if a language is recursive then there will be definitely a turing machine which will halt and will say whether the string is accepted or not. But if a language is recursively enumerable then the turing machine will halt if the string is accepted but it is not necessary that the turing machine will halt to indicate that the string is not accepted. in this case the user might end up in infinite wait by thinking that turing machine will halt string acceptance process is still in progress.
Option(B): It is incorrect option.
Option(C): Yes it is true that recursively enumerable languages are closed under union.
Option(D): It is a correct option because recursively enumerable and recursive languages are closed under reversal.
