b) Y, n or –

c) A binary digit

d) Any integer

Q5. In a limited entry decision table the condition stub

a) Lists x or – corresponding to actions to be executed

b) Lists the conditions to be tested

c) Has y or n or – entries

d) Lists the actions to be taken

Q6. The following while structure is wrong because

balance =500

while balance <=1000 do

write (amount due – balance)

a) Read must appear before write

b) This loop will never terminate

c) No read allowed in a loop the contents of next record is not known

Q7. Select correct decision structures from the following

i. If total marks>=75

then enter distinction in student record

end if

ii. If total marks >=50

then enter pass in student record

else enter fail in student record

end if

iii. If total marks >=60

then enter first class in student record

else if total marks>= 50

then enter second class in student record

else

enter fail in student record

end if

end if

iv. If attendance <30%

then

else

a) Ii and iii

b) I and ii

c) Iii and iv

d) I and iv

Q8. A rule in a limited entry decision table is a

a) Row of the table consisting of condition entries

b) Row of the table consisting of action entries

c) Column of the table consisting of condition entries and the corresponding action entries

d) Columns of the tables consisting of conditions of the stub

Q9. A-against an action in an action row signifies that the

a) Action is not to be taken

b) Action is to be taken

c) Action is important

d) Action is not important

Q10. A decision table is preferable when the number of

a) Conditions to be checked in a procedure is small

b) Conditions to be checked in a procedure is large

c) Actions to be carried out are large

d) Actions to be carried out are small

Q11. The following structured english procedure is incorrect because case (code)

code=2 : if purchase amount >=5000

then discount=5%

code=1 : discount=2%

code=3 : if purchase amount >=4000

then discount =2%

else if code=4

then discount =5%

end if

none of the above codes : discount=0

end case

a) Code=2 should appear after code=1

b) If statement cannot be used within a case

c) Code=4 should not be used in the action for code=3

d) The statement is correct

a) Describe computational procedures reasonably precisely which can be understood by any user

b) Expand a dfd so that a user can understand it

c) Develop algorithms corresponding to processes in a dfd

d) Ease writing programs for dfds

Q13. An extended entry decision table

a) Has no limited entry equivalent

b) Cannot be replaced by a table with only y, or – entries

c) May have yes, no answers to conditions

d) Can always be converted to an equivalent limited entry decision table

a) I and ii

b) I and iii

c) Iii and iv

d) Ii and iii

departments record}

else
