Consider a process executing on an operating system that uses demand paging. The average
time for a memory access in the system is M units if the corresponding memory page is
available in memory, and D units if the memory access causes a page fault. It has been
experimentally measured that the average time taken for a memory access in the process is
X units.
Which one of the following is the correct expression for the page fault rate experienced by
the process?
(A) (D – M) / (X – M) (B) (X – M) / (D – M)
(C) (D – X) / (D – M) (D) (X – M) / (D – X)

A demand paging system,with page table held in integer,takes $5ms$ to service a page fault if an empty page is available,or if the page to be replaced is not dirty.It takes $15ms$ if the replaced page is dirty. Memory access time is $1\mu s.$ Assume ... . The approximate maximum acceptable page fault rate to meet this time requirement will be______$\%?$ $\text{(Correct to two decimal places).}$

Why do we need multilevel paging? According to me the reason is that page table needs contiguous memory allocation.So if page table size is too large, we may not be able to store the table in contiguous memory. So is this the reason behind multilevel paging? Also when we page the page table, do we store all levels page table in memory or only the outer level page table?

Consider a system using 2 level paging applicable page table is devided into 2k pages each size 4kB. If PAS is 64 MB which is devided into 16K frames . PTE size is 2B in both the levels calculate the length of PA, LA and # of entry at second level?
