Answers

1. (d) 

I = 4 x 10-6 Amps.
R = 1.2 x 106 Ohms.
V = IR.
So, V = 4 x 10-6 x 1.2 x 106 = 4.8 V.
R = 4.8/4 x 10-6 = 1.2 MΩ.

2. (d) Algebraic sum of currents = 12 - 10 = 2mA

3. (a) 

Freq. = R/(2πL) 
= 3300/(2 x 3.1416 x 0.0056)
= 93,787 Hz or 93.8 KHz

4. (b) 

BW = f/Q
Q = (1/R)√(L/C) = 127.65 (after putting values)
f = 1/2 x π x √(L/C) = 1385265.971 (After putting values)
f/Q = 10852

5. (d)

In two port network
Z12 = Z21
Y21 = Y21
h12 = - h21
AD - BC = 1

6. (c) 

Transfer function = (G1 + 1) G2 + 1 = G1 G2 + G2 + 1.

7. (a)

In a two-phase servomotor 42-198 << 1 so the torque-speed curve is almost linear.

8. (c)

Routh Hurwitz criteria are used to find the stability of the system and this is determined by the number of roots in which the number of roots is equal to the number of "sign" changes.

Here, the number of sign changes = 2

9. (b)

Because the lag network has R and C. The capacitor at t = 0 will be short and at t = infinity will become battery means an open circuit. Exponentially function describe this nature of capacitor for the lag network.

10. (c) 

For  term the slope is -20 dB/decade or -6 dB/octave because - 20 log 2 = -6 dB.
