A) FALSE ..page fault...occurs when the process requesting data which is not present in the main memory...so processes tend to the I/O-bound has no connection in reducing page fault...if process is not in the main memory than how it can access i/o....if it is in the main memory no page pault will occur...
B)FALSE reducing the page size...does not decrease the page fault...instead it increase the page fault..because if we decrease the page size...then the no. of pages will increase..and if pages increase...then it may not reside in main memory..as we know main memory is limited..
C)FALSE..processes tend to the cpu-bound only increase the cpu utilization and decreases the throught put..coz process will be spending more time in the running state..it has no connection with reducing page fault..
D) TRUE is An implication of locality is that we can predict with reasonable accuracy what instructions and data a program will use in the near future based on its accesses in the recent past. Two different types of locality have been observed: bullet Temporal locality: states that recently accessed items are likely to be accessed in the near future. bullet Spatial locality: says that items whose addresses are near one another tend to be referenced close together in time.
others techiques which can reduce page fault are..
1)increase page size...may work some time
2)decrease the degree of multiprogramming
3)increase main memory
