Answer would be (e) None of the above. Because TRAP cuts input voltage to reset the processor in the event of loss of power.

(a). executes an RST by hardware : This will not be answer, Because RST is different Interrupt than TRAP.

(b). executes an instruction supplied by an external device through the INTA signal : Again there is a different interrupt pin called INTA. Hence It is not at all related to TRAP.

(c). executes an instruction from memory location 20H : RST 4 executes the memory address 0020H. Its not TRAP.

(d). executes a NOP : This can not be the answer.
