An application loads $$100$$ libraries at startup. Loading each library requires exactly one disk access. The seek time of the disk to random location is given as $$10$$ $$ms$$. Rotational speed of disk is $$6000$$ $$rpm.$$ If all $$100$$ libraries are loaded from random locations on the disk, how long does it take to load all libraries? (The time to transfer data from the disk block once the head has been positioned at the start of the block may be neglected).
A
$$0.50s$$
B
$$1.50s$$
C
$$1.25s$$
D
$$1.00s$$

Consider a disk system with $$100$$ cylinders. The requests to access the cylinders occur in following sequence:
$$4, 34, 10, 7, 19, 73, 2, 15, 6, 20$$
Assuming that the head is currently at cylinder $$50,$$ what is the time taken to satisfy all requests if it takes $$1$$ $$ms$$ to move from one cylinder to adjacent one and shortest seek time first policy is used?
A
$$95\,\,ms$$
B
$$119\,\,ms$$
C
$$233\,\,ms$$
D
$$276\,\,ms$$

For a magnetic disk with concentric circular tracks, the seek latency is not linearly proportional to the seek distance due to
A
non-uniform distribution of requests
B
arm starting and stopping inertia
C
higher capacity of tracks on the periphery of the platter
D
use of unfair arm scheduling policies.

Consider a disk drive with the following specifications:
$$16$$ surfaces, $$512$$ tracks/surface, $$512$$ sectors/track, $$1$$KB/Sector, rotation speed $$3000$$ rpm. The disk is operated in cycle stealing mode whereby whenever one $$4$$ byte word is ready it it's sent to memory; similarly, for writing, the disk interface reads a $$4$$ byte word from the memory in each $$DMA$$ cycle Memory cycle time is $$40$$nsec. The maximum percentage of time that the $$CPU$$ gets blocked during $$DMA$$ operation is:
A
$$10$$
B
$$25$$
C
$$40$$
D
$$50$$
