Q:

#define clrscr() 100

main()

{

clrscr();

printf( "%dn", clrscr() );

}

A) 100 B) 0
C) Compilation error D) Exception occurs
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 100

Explanation:

Preprocessor executes as a seperate pass before the execution of the compiler. So textual replacement of clrscr() to 100 occurs.The input program to compiler looks like this :

main ()

{

100;

printf("%d\n",100);

}

Note: 100; is an executable statement but with no action. So it doesn't give any problem.

Q:

Define latency, transfer and seek time with respect to disk I/O.

Answer

Seek time is the time required to move the disk arm to the required track. Rotational delay or latency is the time it takes for the beginning of the required sector to reach the head. Sum of seek time (if any) and latency is the access time. Time taken to actually transfer a span of data is transfer time.

Q:

What are demand-paging and pre-paging?

Answer

With demand paging, a page is brought into memory only when a location on that page is actually referenced during execution. With pre-paging, pages other than the one demanded by a page fault are brought in. The selection of such pages is done based on common access patterns, especially for secondary memory devices.
