**A University professor maintains data on MCA students tabulated by performance and gender of the students. The data is kept on a computer hard disk, but accidently some of it is lost because of a computer virus. Only the following could be recovered:**

Panic
buttons were pressed but to no avail. An expert committee was formed, which
decided that the following facts were self evident:

(a) Half the
students were either excellent or good.

(b) 40% of
the students were females.

(c)
One-third of the male students were average.

Answer
questions 4-6 based on the data given above:

4. Approximately,
what proportion of good students are male?

(1) 0

(2) 0.73

(3) 0.43

(4) 0.27

Answer: 2

__Explanation:__
(b) 40% of
the students were females = 32

Therefore
total no. of students = (100/40) x 32 = 80

So, no. of
male students = 80-32 = 48

(c)
One-third of the male students were average = 1/3 x 48 = 16

(a) Half the
students were either excellent or good.

So, Total
Good + Total Excellent = 40

=> Total Good = 40-10-30

So, Total
Average = 40

Proportion
of good students who are male = 22/30 = 0.73

5. How
many female students are excellent?

(1) 0

(2) 8

(3) 16

(4) 32

Answer: 1

6. What
proportion of female students are good?

(1) 0

(2) 0.25

(3) 0.50

(4) 0.75

Answer: 2

__Explanation:__
Proportion
of female students who are good = 8/32 = 0.25

7. Which
of the following correctly lists computer memory types from highest to lowest
speed?

(1) Secondary
Storage; Main Memory; Cache Memory; CPU Registers

(2) CPU Registers;
Cache Memory; Secondary Storage; Main Memory

(3) CPU Registers;
Cache Memory; Main Memory; Secondary Storage

(4) Cache Memory;
CPU Registers; Main Memory; Secondary Storage

Answer: 3

8. Which
of the following statement(s) is/are TRUE?

S1: The
decimal number 11 is larger than the hexadecimal number 11.

S2: In the
binary number 1110.101, the fractional part has the decimal value as 0.625.

(1) S1 only

(2) S2 only

(3) Both S1
and S2

(4) Neither
S1 nor S2

Answer: 2

__Explanation:__
To convert
Hexadecimal number to Decimal number, multiply every digit with 16 power of
digit location. Then, sum all the multipliers.

Decimal
representation of hexadecimal number 11 = 1x16

^{1}+1x16^{0}
= 16+1 = 17

To convert decimal
fraction to binary, begin with the decimal fraction and multiply by 2

Because .625
x 2 = 1.25, the first binary digit to the right
of the point is a 1.

Because .25
x 2 = 0.50, the second binary digit to the right
of the point is a 0.

Because .50
x 2 = 1.00, the third binary digit to the right
of the point is a 1.

In fact, we
do not need to multiply the fraction again, because we had 0 as the fractional
part of our result there.

Hence the
representation of .625 = .101 (base 2).

9. Read
the following two statements:

I: Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
is considered a subset of Information Technology (IT).

(1) Both I
and II

(2) Neither
I nor II

(3) II only

(4) I only

Answer: 2
