Determine the number of page faults when references to pages occur in the following order: $1,2,4,5,2,1,2,4$. Assume that the main memory can accommodate $3$ pages and the main memory already has the pages $1$ and $2$, with page $1$ having been brought earlier than page $2$.(LRU algorithm is used). $3$ $5$ $4$ None of these.

Which of the following statements about semaphores is true? $P$ and $V$ operations should be indivisible operations. A semaphore implementation should guarantee that threads do not suffer indefinite postponement. If several threads attempt a $P(S)$ operation simultaneously, only one thread should be allowed to proceed. All of the above.

Consider three processes (process id $0,1,2$ respectively) with compute time bursts $2,4$ and $8$ time units. All processes arrive at time zero. Consider the Longest Remaining Time First (LRTF) scheduling algorithm. In LRTF ties are broken by giving priority to the process with the lowest process id. The average turn around time is $13$ units $14$ units $15$ units $16$ units

Consider three processes, all arriving at time zero, with total execution time of $10,20$ and $30$ units, respectively. Each process spends the first $20\%$ of execution time doing I/O, the next $70\%$ of time doing computation, and the last $10\%$ of time doing I/O again. The ... as much as possible. For what percentage of time does the CPU remain idle? $0\%$ $10.6\%$ $30.0\%$ $89.4\%$

A scheduling algorithm assigns priority proportional to the waiting time of a process. Every process starts with priority zero (the lowest priority). The scheduler re-evaluates the process priorities every $T$ time units and decides the next process to ... algorithm is equivalent to the shortest-job-first algorithm. This algorithm is equivalent to the shortest-remaining time-first algorithm.
