2. Explain the activities required in maintaining a store with its components?

Answer: Store maintenance includes all the activities involved in managing a store’s facilities, such as management of exterior and interior physical facilities. The exterior facilities include the parking arrangements, the entrances to the store, and signs and windows outside the store. Interior facilities include the arrangements for windows, walls, flooring, ceiling, climate control, energy use, fixtures and shelves, displays, and signs and sidewalks. Shoppers will not come to a store whose washrooms, staircases, elevators and floor areas are poorly maintained. Thus, it requires regular cleaning of lights, fixtures, washrooms, elevators, floor areas, dustbins, water coolers and air conditioners, besides quick replacement of burned out

 

 

 

3. Describe the different types of store layouts?

Answer: Store layouts outline location and size of each section, permanent fixtures, if any, movement of lifts and trolleys (in case of heavy merchandise, like furniture) within the store. A floor plan will also depend on the type of merchandise to be stored, location of the building and the overall store design. A good layout plan helps in optimum utilization of all the available resources.

Answer:Ethical and Legal Issues in Buying Merchandise

The organized retail sector in India is progressing by leaps and bounds though it has not been given the ‘industry’ status. Given the thousands of transactions that take place between the retailers and their vendors, disputes with regard to unethical and illegal situations may naturally arise.

Business Ethics

The application of general principles of ethics that are customary in a society to areas where business is conducted is known as business ethics. These are concerned with the obligations of honesty, justice and that an entrepreneur assumes when he/she enters into a business. The significance of ethical code in the retail world is of even greater importance today

 

 

5. What are the different steps involved in Vendor Selection Process?

Answer: The given steps are followed in a typical vendor selection process:

1. Analysis of the business requirements: The very first task to be performed in a vendor selection process is to analyse business requirements. A retailer should understand what goods and services he/ she requires for business and determine the frequency of these requirements so that he/she can search for prospective vendors accordingly. Next, the technical and business requirements are defined by the retailer in relation to vendor requirements. Then, vendor requirement document is published mentioning the areas pertinent to the vendor selection process and asking for the suggestions and views of the evaluation team. The team members are allowed to critically analyse the

3 Describe the types of busses and types of control lines.

 

Answer : All computers use three types of basic buses. The name of the bus is generally determined by the type of signal it is carrying or the method of operation. We group the buses into three areas as you see them in their most common uses. They are as follows: Control  (also  called  timing  and  control  bus), address, and data (also called a memory bus) buses Instruction  (I),  Operand  (O),  Input/Output Memory (I/O MEM) or Input/Output Controller (IOC), and Computer Interconnection System (CIS) Time multiplexed bus

 

 

 

4 Explain Booth’s multiplication algorithm with its advantages and disadvantages.

 

Answer : Booth’s multiplication algorithm is a multiplication algorithm that multiplies two signed binary numbers in two’s complement notation. The algorithm was invented by Andrew Donald Booth in 1950 while doing research on crystallography at Birkbeck College in Bloomsbury, London. Booth used desk calculators that were faster at shifting than adding and created the algorithm to increase their speed. Booth’s algorithm is of interest in the study of computer architecture.

 

 

5 Explain the concept of memory interleaving with diagram.

 

Answer : In computers, interleaving is a method of writing and reading data out of sequence. Data interleaving is used to combine multiple digital data streams, like in files that contain both audio and video. This technique is also used for memory interleave in disk storage and computer memory, used to make data read and write more quickly. A de-interleaver uses mapping to decipher the interleaved data; it is more or less a diagram of the interleaved pattern that the computer uses to decipher the data.

 

 

6 Explain interrupt driven I/O. Describe the design issues in implementing interrupt driven I/O.

 

Answer : interrupt I/O A way of controlling input/output activity in which a peripheral or terminal that needs to make or receive a data transfer sends a signal that causes a program interrupt to be set. At a time appropriate to the priority level of the I/O interrupt, relative to the total interrupt system, the processor enters an interrupt service routine (ISR). The function of the routine will depend upon the system of interrupt levels and priorities that is implemented in the processor.

Q.2 Construct the following gates using NAND

a) AND b) NOR c) XOR d)XNOR

Answer: – AND: – The AND gate is a basic digital logic gate that implements logical conjunction – it behaves according to the truth table to the right. A HIGH output (1) results only if both the inputs to the AND gate are HIGH (1). If neither or only one input to the AND gate is HIGH, a LOW output results. In another sense, the function of AND effectively

 

 

Q.3 Expand the following Boolean functions into their canonical form:

i. f(X,Y,Z)=XY+YZ+ X Z+ X Y

ii. f(X,Y,Z)=XY+ X Y + X YZ

Answer: – Canonical Forms:-Canonical forms express all binary variables in every product (AND) or sum (OR) term of the Boolean function. There are two types of canonical forms of a Boolean function. The first one is called sum-of product and the second one is called product-of-sum.

A’BC+A’BC’+ABC’+AB’C’+A’B’C’+ABC is a canonical sum-of-product form of a Boolean function, the given function has contained three inputs that

 

Q.4 Simplify the following Boolean function:

F = A’C + A’B + AB’C + BC, using K-map?

Answer:- A K-map shows the value of a function for every combination of input values just like a truth table, but a K-map spatially arranges the values so it is easy to find common terms that can be factored out. The image below shows the form of a 2,3 and 4 variable K-map.

 

 

Q.5 What are sequential circuits? Explain differences between sequential circuits and combinational circuits.

Answer:-Sequential circuits:-  In digital circuit theory, sequential logic is a type of logic circuit whose output depends not only on the present value of its input signals but on the past history of its inputs. This is in contrast to combinational logic, whose output is a function of only the present input. That is, sequential logic has state (memory) while combinational logic does not. Or, in other words, sequential logic is combinational logic with memory.

 

Q.6 What are shift registers? Explain serial in serial out shift register.

Answer: – A shift register is a cascade of flip flops, sharing the same clock, in which the output of each flip-flop is connected to the “data” input of the next flip-flop in the chain, resulting in a circuit that shifts by one position the “bit array” stored in it, shifting in the data present at its input and shifting out the last bit in the array, at each transition of the clock input. More generally, a shift register may be multidimensional, such that its “data in” and stage outputs are themselves bit arrays: this is implemented simply by running several shift

Note: Answer all questions. Kindly note that answers for 10 marks questions should be approximately of 400 words. Each question is followed by evaluation scheme.

 

 

1 Explain the structure of the C program.

Answer : Structure is the collection of variables of different types under a single name for better handling. For example: You want to store the information about person about his/her name, citizenship number and salary. You can create these information separately but, better approach will be collection of these information under single name because all these information are related to person.

 

 

2 What is recursion? Differentiate between recursion and iteration.

Answer : Recursion is a programming technique that allows the programmer to express operations in terms of themselves. In C, this takes the form of a function that calls itself. A useful way to think of recursive functions is to imagine them as a process being performed where one of the instructions is to “repeat the process”. This makes it sound very similar to a loop because it repeats the same code, and in some ways it is similar to

 

3 Define array and explain its need. Write a program to calculate sum and average of the elements stored in an array.

Answer : A collection of variables which are all of the same type. It is a data structure, which provides the facility to store a collection of data of same type under single variable name. Just like the ordinary variable, the array should also be declared properly.

 

4 Explain Union. Differentiate between structure and union

 

Answer : Unions are quite similar to the structures in C. Union is also a derived type as structure. Union can be defined in same manner as structures just the keyword used in defining union in union where keyword used in defining structure

 

5 What is data structure? Explain abstract data type in brief. Differentiate between linear and nonlinear data structure.

Answer : A data structure is a method for organizing and storing data, which would allow efficient data retrieval and usage. Linear data structure is a structure that organizes its data elements one after the other. Linear data structures are organized in a way similar to how the computer’s memory is organized. Nonlinear data structures are constructed by attaching a data element to several other data elements in such a way that it reflects a specific relationship among them. Nonlinear data structures are organized in a different way than the computer’s memory.

 

 

 

6 What is linked list? Explain the advantages of linked lists over array.            

 

Answer :An array stores elements in successive order in memory, i.e. it looks like follows:

 

 

————————————————————————————–|  item 1  |  item 2  |  item 3  |  …  …  |  item x  | //here comes other stuff————————————————————————————–

 

This means, elements are one after another
