1. Declaration statement. Variables are identifiers of memory locations add are used in programs to refer to data. They should be declared prior to their use in the program and data types are required for this. The syntax of variable declaration is:

data type <variable1>
[, <variable2>, <variable3 >,...];
eg., int rollno, age;

2. Assignment statement. A specific data is stored in memory locations (variables) using an assignment operator (=). The statement that contains = is known as assign.. ment statement. It is also a binary operator and the operand to the left of = should be a variable. The operand after = may be a numeric constant, a variable or an expression of numeric type.

Answer 12.
In implicit type conversion, compiler is responsible for the conversion. It always converts a lower type into, higher one and hence it is also known as type promotion,
eg., For example, the expression 5 / 2 * 3 + 2.5 which gives the result 8.5. The evaluation steps are as follows:
Step 1: 5/2 gives 2 (Integer division) Step 2: 2 * 3 gives 6 (Integer multiplication)
Step 3: 6 + 2.5 gives 8.5 (Boating point addition, 6 is converted into 6.0)

Answer 20.
1. Syntax errors result when the rules or syntax of the programming language are not followed. Such program errors typically involve incorrect punctuation, incorrect word sequence, undefined term, or illegal use of terms or constructs. In the case of interpreters, the syntax errors will be detected and displayed during execution,

2. The logical error is due to the improper planning of the program’s logic. The language processor successfully translates the source code into machine code if there are no syntax errors. The computer actually follows the program instructions and gives the output as per the instructions. But the output may not be correct. This is known as logical errors. In order to determine whether or not there is a logical error, the program must be tested.

Answer 21.
Base address (Lvalue) 3000
Content (Rvalue) 105
Name of variables NUM

Answer 22.
a. Preprocessor directives. A C++ program starts with preprocessor directives. Preprocessors are the compiler directive
‘ statements which give instruction to the compiler to process the information provided before actual compilation starts. The # include is used to link the header files available in the C++ library. There are some other preprocessor directives such as # define, # undef, etc.

b. Header files. It contains the information about functions, objects and predefined derived data types and they are available along with compiler. The header file ios team contains the information about the objects cin and cout.

c. The main() function. The execution starts at main() and ends within main(). If we use any other function in the program, it is called (or invoked) from main(). The function header main() is followed by its body, which is a set of one or more statements within a pair of braces {}. This structure is known as the definition of the main() function. Each statement is delimited by a semicolon (;).

Answer 23.
C++ provides data type modifiers which help us to alter the size, range or precision. It alters the range of values permitted to a data type by altering the memory size and/or sign of values. Important modifiers are signed, unsigned, long and short.

Name Description Size
char Character or a small integer 1 byte
short int (short) Short Integer 2 bytes
int Integer 4 bytes
long int (long) Long integer 4 bytes
float Floating point number 4 bytes
double Double preci­sion floating-point number 8 bytes
long double Long double-precision floating-point number 10 bytes

else if (a < 0) *
cout<<“The number is negative”;
else
cout<<“The number is zero”; return 0;
}

Answer 25.
Dial-up connection. The internet connection is established by dialing into an ISP’s computer. If ISP is not busy they verify the username and password if it is valid they will connect our computer to the internet. It uses Serial Line Internet Protocol (SLIP) or Points to Point Protocol (PPP). It is slower and has a higher er rotate.

Answer 29.
a. A looping statement has four components: initialization expression, test expression, update expression, loop body. The loop body is the set of statements for repeated execution. The execution is continued as long as the test expression (condition) is true. The variable used in the test expression, called a loop control variable, gets its initial value through the initialization expression (or statement). Update expression changes the value of the loop control variable. Usually, it takes place after each execution of the loop body.

b. while loop. The condition is checked first and if it is found, True the body of the loop will be executed. That is the body will be executed as long as the condition is True. The syntax of a while loop is, initialization of loop control variable;

while (test expression)
{
body of the loop;
updation of Ipop control variable;
}
eg., int k= 1; while(k<=3)
{
cout << k << `\t’;
++k;
}

do while loop. The condition is checked only after executing the loop body. So it is certain that the loop body will be executed at least once in the case of do while loop.

Syntax is:
initialization of loop control variable; 
do
body of the loop;
updation of loop control variable;
}
while (test expression); 
eg., int k = 1; do {
cout << k << At’;
++k;
}
while (k<=3);

Answer 30.
a. The physical or logical arrangement of computers on a network is called structure or topology. It is the geometrical arrangement of computers in a network,
b.
1. Ring topology. All the computers are connected in the shape of a ring and it is a closed-loop. Here also there is no central computer. Here a computer transmits a message, which is tagged along with its destination computer’s Address. The message travels in one direction and each node checks whether the message is for them. If not, it passes to the next node. It requires only short cable length. Its advantages are no signal amplification required because each node do this and requires less cable, so cost-effective. The main disadvantage is if a node fails, the entire network will fail.

2. Bus topology. All the computers are attached to a single cable, called the bus. If anyone node has to send data to another node, it will send the data to the bus. In the bus, the data travels in both directions. The node that needs the data copies it. A small device called terminator connected at both end of the bus removes the data and frees the bus for next transmission. Advantages are added or remove computer is very easy. It requires less cable length and the installation cost is less. A disadvantage is fault detection is very difficult because of no central computer,

c. Hub. It is a small, simple and inexpensive device used to connect computers (devices) to a network. If a computer wants to transmit data to another computer, first it sends to the hub, the hub retransmits this data to all other computers. Each and every computer gets the data and check whether it is for them or not. It increases the network traffic and hence the transmission speed is low.

Switch. It is an expensive device used to connect computers (device) to a network. Unlike a hub, switch transmit data, not to all computers, it retransmits data only to the intended computer. So the traffic is less and the speed is high.
