A broadcast channel has 10 nodes and total capacity of 10 Mbps. It uses polling for medium access. Once a node finishes transmission, there is a polling delay of 80 μs to poll the next node. Whenever a node is polled, it is allowed to transmit a maximum of 1000 bytes. The maximum throughput of the broadcast channel is

 A) 1 Mbps B) 100/11 Mbps C) 10 Mbps D) 100 Mbps

Explanation: Efficiency = transmission time/(transmission time + polling delay time)
Tt =1000 bytes/10Mbps =800μs.
Polling delay is = 80 μs
Efficiency=800/(800+80)= 10/11
Maximum throughput is =(10/11) * 10 Mbps= 100/11 Mbps

Don't worry about the question you got the answer it enough you can't debate in 3 hours gate paper why you have given node in question if there is no use of it .

can u clear me this line:

Throughput = efficiency * Bandwidth

efficiency = use-full time / total time  ===> Tt / Tt +2 Tp

Divide the complete formula with Tt ===> Efficiency = 1/1+2a        consider Tp/Tt =a

Throughput also called as effective bandwidth or bandwidth utilization

in CN throughput =no of bits we are able to send per sec if L is the no of bit then

Throughput =L / Tt + 2 Tp (total cycle time)

Tt + 2 Tp  is the total cycle time in which we are able to send L bits

Now multiply and divide L with Bandwidth(B) in formula  L*(B/B) / Tt + 2 Tp

Now L / B =Tt  So it will become   Tt*B / Tt + 2 Tp

Now divide the formula with Tt then you get

(1/1+2a) * B  ===> efficiency * bandwidth   (I have given efficiency formula at the starting)

Throughput= efficiency * Bandwidth

if you dont understand it here write it down of a paper the you will understand .Try to do it by yourself

shouldn't the bandwidth be divided among 10 nodes so that each gets 1Mbps bandwidth?

It's asking for throughput of whole channel
