Answer:

Deadlock Livelock Starvation
ln this, a group of the member is waiting for the other member to release its lock, hence ceasing each other from accessing the resource.

Livelock is a particular case of starvation.

It is different from deadlock because all the processes are in the state of waiting.

When some process is never serviced, even when it's not in deadlock, then this situation is called starvation.

Main memory units are preempted in swapping and virtual memory systems. The processor is preempted in time-sharing environments. Do you think that these preemption methods were developed to handle resource deadlock or for other purposes? How high is their overhead?

One way to prevent deadlocks is to eliminate the hold-and-wait condition. In the text it was proposed that before asking for a new resource, a process must first release whatever resources it already holds (assuming that is possible). However, doing so introduces ... that it may get the new resource but lose some of the existing ones to competing processes. Propose an improvement to this scheme.

In an electronic funds transfer system, there are hundreds of identical processes that work as follows. Each process reads an input line specifying an amount of money, the account to be credited, and the account to be debited. Then it locks both accounts and transfers ... . (In other words, solutions that lock one account and then release it immediately if the other is locked are not allowed.)

Two processes, $A$ and $B,$ each need three records, $1, 2,$ and $3,$ in a database. If $A$ asks for them in the order $1, 2, 3,$ and $B$ asks for them in the same order, deadlock is not possible. However, if $B$ asks for them ... resources, there are $3!$ or six possible combinations in which each process can request them. What fraction of all the combinations is guaranteed to be deadlock free?
