Hi Babitha and Mayson thanks for your comments ...i published it for others to view and have a further comment on it.

Preethy said...

Hi Friends,

Which is the correct answer of Q97?

mayson said...

Answer is a*

Anuroop Vincent said...

Anser for 17 is incorrect.i agree that the virtual memory is physically located in the hard disk.but it is logically located in main memory.(in the pont of view of processor that the whole progarm that is reside in main memory how ever that not in main memory that is the concept of virtual memory)

Priyesh Kupleri said...

answer of Q.99 is Charecter. No 'word' data type in C.

gifty said...

Answer for question number 17 incorrect.Virtual memory means giving an illusion that user's program is completely in main memory.Actually part of it may be reside in secondary memory like hard disk.But logicaaly virtual memory is located in main memory


cut of mark?


cut of mark ?


Cut of mark ?

swati said...

what about the cut off marks?anyone has any idea

jayan said...

cut of mark is 33 and above

jayan said...

cut of mark is 33 and above

jayan said...

cut of mark is 33 and above

Priyesh Kupleri said...

to guess the cut off mark is very difficult. last time it was 35 and very difficult exam. but now also with a lot of confused and wrong questions. out of 75 may be 35-40 cut off mark. what u r thinking? am i right?

jayan said...

ok friend..but this time hsst computer science jr and sr exam is only one i think the rank list of candidate abov time sr and jr was differant exam.and also this time vacancy is too long...then cut off mark 35 is never..i think 30 and below

jayan said...

any one got 40 marks and above?
