S1. Ans. (b)
Sol. In Round Robin Scheduling fixed time is allotted to each process, called quantum, for execution. Once a process is executed for given time period that process is preempted, and other process executes for given time period.

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. A real-time operating system (RTOS) is an operating system (OS) intended to serve real-time applications that process data as it comes in, typically without buffer delays. Processing time requirements (including any OS delay) are measured in tenths of seconds or shorter increments of time.

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. Response time is the time of submission to the time the first response is produced.

S4. Ans.(d)

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. FIFO is the simplest page replacement algorithm. In this algorithm, operating system keeps track of all pages in the memory in a queue, oldest page is in the front of the queue. When a page needs to be replaced page in the front of the queue is selected for removal.

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. First in, first out (FIFO), also known as first come, first served (FCFS), is the simplest scheduling algorithm. FIFO simply queues processes in the order that they arrive in the ready queue. In this, the process that comes first will be executed first and next process starts only after the previous gets fully executed.

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. If another process requests that resource (non – shareable resource), the requesting process must be delayed until the resource has been released.

S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. Deadlock Prevention: Deadlocks can be prevented by preventing at least one of the four required conditions: Mutual Exclusion, Hold and Wait, No Pre-emption, Circular Wait.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. A Critical Section is a code segment that accesses shared variables and has to be executed as an atomic action. It means that in a group of cooperating processes, at a given point of time, only one process must be executing its critical section.

S10. Ans.(b)
