Consider two files systems A and B, that use contiguous allocation and linked allocation, respectively. A file of size 100 blocks is already stored in A and also in B. Now, consider inserting a new block in the middle of the file (between 50th and 51st block), whose data is already available in the memory. Assume that there are enough free blocks at the end of the file and that the file control blocks are already in memory. Let the number of disk accesses required to insert a block in the midele of the file in A and B are nA and nB, respectively, then the value of nA + nB is _____________.
Let R1 and R2 be two 4-bit registers that store numbers in 2's complement form. For the operation R1 + R2, which one of the following values of R1 and R2 gives an arithmetic overflow?
Consider a digital display system (DDS) shown in the figure that displays the contents of register X. A 16-bit code word is used to load a word in X, either from S or from R. S is a 1024-word memory segment and R is a 32-word register file. Based on the value of mode bit M, T selects an input word to load in X. P and Q interface with the corresponding bits in the code word to choose the addressed word. Which one of the following represents the functionality of P, Q, and T?
Consider three floating points numbers A, B and C stored in registers RA, RB and RC, respectively as per IEEE-754 single precision floating point format. The 32-bit content stored in these registers (in hexadecimal form) are as follows.
Which one of the following is FALSE?
