Question 1

A
Band Width
B
Doppler effect
C
Sound refraction
D
Vibrations
Question 1 Explanation: 
→ The Doppler effect is the change in frequency or wavelength of a wave in relation to an observer who is moving relative to the wave source.
→ The Doppler effect is observed whenever the source of waves is moving with respect to an observer.
→ The Doppler effect can be described as the effect produced by a moving source of waves in which there is an apparent upward shift in frequency for observers towards whom the source is approaching and an apparent downward shift in frequency for observers from whom the source is receding.
Question 2

Question 2 Explanation: 
→ Motion picture, also called film or movie, series of still photographs on film, projected in rapid succession onto a screen by means of light.
→ When a motion picture film is projected on a screen at the rate of at least 16 illuminations per second but the commercial motion pictures uses 24 frames per second or 72 screen illuminations per second.
→ Film Technology standard is 24 frames per second, a three bladed shutter and some dreamy motion blur, all projected as shadow and light on the side of a wall.

A
Allows gateways to send error control messages to other gateways or hosts
B
Provides communication between the internet protocol software on one machine and the internet protocol software on another
C
Only reports error conditions to the original source, the source must relate errors to individual application programs and take action to correct the problem.
D
All of these
Question 3 Explanation: 
→ The Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) is used by network devices, including routers, to send error messages and operational information indicating, for example, that a requested service is not available or that a host or router could not be reached.
→ ICMP creates and sends messages to the source IP address indicating that a gateway to the Internet that a router, service or host cannot be reached for packet delivery.
Question 4

→ Computer architecture involves instruction set architecture design, microarchitecture design, logic design, and implementation.
→ Organization of computer system is the way of practical implementation which results in realization of architectural specifications of a computer system.
→ A microprocessor is a computer processor that incorporates the functions of a central processing unit on a single integrated circuit (IC),or at most a few integrated circuits.

Question 5
How many characters does an escape sequence (\On, \Hn,\n,\f) in C++ consume?
A
1
B
3
C
2
D
None of these
Question 5 Explanation: 
→ An escape sequence is a sequence of characters that does not represent itself when used inside a character or string literal, but is translated into another character or a sequence of characters that may be difficult or impossible to represent directly.
→ All escape sequences consist of two or more characters, the first of which is the backslash, \ (called the "Escape character"); the remaining characters determine the interpretation of the escape sequence. For example, \n is an escape sequence that denotes a newline character.
→ If we treat it a character constant means one character
Note: An escape sequence is regarded as a single character and is therefore valid as a character constant.
Question 6
The closeness of the recorded version to the original sound is called
A
Fidelity
B
Digitization
C
Sampling
D
Nyquist Theorem
Question 6 Explanation: 
→ Digitization is the process of converting information into a digital format . In this format, information is organized into discrete units of data (called bit s) that can be separately addressed (usually in multiple-bit groups called bytes).
→ sampling is the reduction of a continuous-time signal to a discrete-time signal. A common example is the conversion of a sound wave (a continuous signal) to a sequence of samples (a discrete-time signal).
→ "fidelity" denotes how accurately a copy reproduces its source
