Consider a finite sequence of random values $$X = \left\{ {{x_1},{x_2},{x_3}, - - - - - {x_n}} \right\}..$$ Let $${\mu _x}$$ be the mean and $${\sigma _x}$$ be the standard deviation of $$X.$$ Let another finite sequence $$Y$$ of equal length be derived from this $${y_i} = a.{x_i} + b,$$ where $$a$$ and $$b$$ are positive constants. Let $${\mu _y}$$ be the mean and $${\sigma _y}$$ be the standard deviation of this sequence. Which one of the following statements is incorrect?
A
Index position of mode of $$X$$ in $$X$$ is the same as the index position of mode of $$Y$$ in $$Y$$.
B
Index position of median of $$X$$ in $$X$$ is the same as the index position of median of $$Y$$ in $$Y.$$
C
$${\mu _y} = a{\mu _x} + b$$
D
$${\sigma _y} = a{\sigma _x} + b$$

A Computer handles several interrupt sources of which the following are relevant for this question:

$$ * \,\,\,$$ Interrupt from $$CPU$$ temperature sensor (raises interrupt if $$CPU$$ temperature is too high)

$$ * \,\,\,$$ Interrupt from Mouse (raises interrupt if the mouse is moved or a button is pressed)

$$ * \,\,\,$$ Interrupt from keyboard (raises interrupt when a key is pressed or release)

$$ * \,\,\,$$ Interrupt from Hard Disk (raises interrupt when a disk read is completed)>/p>

Which one these will be handled at the HIGHEST priority?

A
Interrupt from Hard Disk
B
Interrupt from Mouse
C
Interrupt from Keyboard
D
Interrupt from $$CPU$$ temperature sensor.

B
The $$OS$$ does not maintain a separate stack for each thread
C
On per-thread basis, the $$OS$$ does not maintain virtual memory state.
D
On per-thread basis, the $$OS$$ maintains only scheduling and accounting
