Consider the following two phase locking protocol. Suppose a transaction $$T$$ accesses (for read or write operations), a certain set of objects $$\left\{ {{O_1},...,{O_k}} \right\}.$$ This is done in the following manner:

Step 1. T acquires exclusive locks to $${{O_1},...,{O_k}}$$ in increasing order of their
addresses.
Step 2. The required operations are performed.
Step 3. All locks are released.

This protocol will

A
guarantee serializability and deadlock-freedom
B
guarantee neither serializability nor deadlock-freedom
C
guarantee serializability but not deadlock-freedom
D
guarantee deadlock-freedom but not serializability

Consider a simple checkpointing protocol and the following set of operations in the log.

(start, $$T4$$); (write, $$T4, y, 2, 3$$); (start, $$T1$$); (commit, $$T4$$); (write, $$T1, z, 5, 7$$);
(checkpoint);
(start, $$T2$$); (write, $$T2, x, 1, 9$$); (commit, $$T2$$); (start, $$T3$$), (write, $$T3, z, 7, 2$$);

If a crash happens now and the system tries to recovver using both undo and redo operations, what are the contents of the undo list and the redo list?

A
Undo: $$T3,T1;$$ Redo: $$T2$$
B
Undo: $$T3,T1;\,{\mathop{\rm Re}\nolimits} do:T2,T4$$
C
Undo: none; Redo: $$T2,T4,T3,T1$$
D
Undo: $$T3,T1,T4;\,\,$$ Redo : $$T2$$
