A computer system with a word length of 32 bits has a 16 MB byte-addressable main memory and a 64 KB, 4-way set associative cache memory with a block size of 256 bytes. Consider the following four physical addresses represented in hexadecimal notation.

A1 = 0x42C8A4, A2 = 0x546888, A3 = 0x6A289C, A4 = 0x5E4880

Which one of the following is TRUE?
A
A1 and A4 are mapped to different cache sets.
B
A1 and A3 are mapped to the same cache set.
C
A3 and A4 are mapped to the same cache set.
D
A2 and A3 are mapped to the same cache set.

A
$$P - N - lo{g_2}K$$
B
$$P - N + lo{g_2}K$$
C
$$P - N - M - W - lo{g_2}\,\,K$$

A file system uses an in-memory cache to cache disk blocks. The miss rate of the cache is shown in the figure. The latency to read a block from the cache is $$1$$ $$ms$$ and to read a block from the disk is $$10$$ $$ms.$$ Assume that the cost of checking whether a block exists in the cache is negligible. Available cache sizes are in multiples of $$10$$ $$MB.$$ GATE CSE 2016 Set 2 Computer Organization - Memory Interfacing Question 12 English

The smallest cache size required to ensure an average read latency of less than $$6$$ $$ms$$ is _________ $$MB.$$
