Consider a base band binary PAM receiver shown below. The additive channel noise $$n(t)$$ is white with power spectral density $${S_N}\left( f \right) = {N_0}/2 = {10^{ - 20}}$$ $$W/Hz$$. The low-pass filter is ideal with unity gain and cut -off frequency $$1MHz$$. Let $${Y_k}$$ represent the random variable $$y\left( {{t_k}} \right)$$.
$${Y_k} = {N_k}$$ if transmitted bit $${b_k} = 0$$
$${Y_k} = a + {N_k}$$ if transmitted bit $${b_k} = 1$$
Where $${b_k} = 0$$ represents the noise sample value. The noise sample has a probability density function, $${P_{{N_k}}}\left( n \right)\,\,\,\,\,\,\, = 0.5\alpha {e^{ - \alpha \left| n \right|}}$$ (This has mean zero and variance $$2/{\alpha ^2}$$). Assume transmitted bits to be equiprobable and threshold $$z$$ is set to $$a/2 = {10^{ - 6}}V$$.

The probability of bit error is

A
$$0.5 \times {e^{ - 3.5}}$$
B
$$0.5 \times {e^{ - 5}}$$
C
$$0.5 \times {e^{ - 7}}$$
D
$$0.5 \times {e^{ - 10}}$$

Consider a Binary Symmetric Channel (BSC) with probability of error being 'p'. To transit a bit, say 1, we transmit a sequence of three 1s. The receiver will interpret the received sequence to represent 1 if at least two bits are 1. The probability that the transmitted bit will be received in error is
A
$${p^3} + 3{p^2}\left( {1 - p} \right)$$
B
$${p^3}$$
C
$${\left( {1 - p} \right)^3}$$
D
$${p^3} + {p^2}\left( {1 - p} \right)$$
