43. Consider
the following snippet of a C program. Assume that swap (& x, & y)
exchanges the contents of x and y.

int main() {

int
array[] = {3, 5, 1, 4, 6, 2);

int
done = 0;

int
i;

while
(done == 0) {

done = 1;

for
(i=0; i<=4; i++) {

if
(array[i] < array[i+1]) {

swap(&array[i], &array[i+1]);

done
= 0;

}

}

for
(i=5; i>=1; i--) {

if
(array[i] > array[i-1]) {

swap(&array[i], &array[i-1]);

done
= 0;

44. Two
transactions T_{1} and T_{2} are given as

T_{1}:
r_{1}(X)w_{1}(X)r_{1}(Y)w_{1}(Y)

T_{2}:
r_{2}(Y)w_{2}(Y)r_{2}(Z)w_{2}(Z)

45. The
read access times and the hit ratios for different caches in a memory hierarchy
are as given below.

The read
access time of main memory is 90 nanoseconds. Assume that the caches use the referred-word-first
read policy and the write back policy. Assume that all the caches are direct
mapped caches. Assume that the dirty bit is always 0 for all the blocks in the
caches. In execution of a program, 60% of memory reads are for instruction fetch
and 40% are for memory operand fetch. The average read access time in
nanoseconds (up to 2 decimal places) is ..................
