Directions for questions Q24 - Q28:
It is convenient to use the term Data Object to refer to a run-time grouping of one or more pieces of data in a virtual computer. During execution of a program, many different data objects of different types exist. More over, in contrast to the relatively static organization of the underlying storage areas of an actual computer, these data objects and their interrelationships change dynamically during program execution. Some of the data objects that exist during program execution are programmer defined [i.e., they are variables, constants, arrays, files etc.]; the programmer explicitly creates and manipulates through declarations and statements in the program.

Other data objects are System Defined [i.e..they will be data objects that the virtual computer sets up for housekeeping during program execution and are not directly accessible to the programmer, such as run-time storage stacks, subprogram activation records , file buffers and free-space lists. System defined data objects are ordinarily generated automatically as needed during program execution without explicit specification by the programmer.

A data object represents a container for data values - a place where data values may be stored and later retrieved. A data object is characterized by a set of attributes, the most important of which is its data type. The attributes determine the number and type of values that the data object may contain and also determine the logical organization of those values.

A data value might be a single number, character, or possibly a pointer to another data object. A data value is ordinarily represented by a particular pattern of bits in the storage of a computer

Q24. What is the primary difference between a Data Object and a Data Value?

a) A Data Object is vaster as compared to a Data Value.
b) A Data Value is vaster as compared to a Data Object.
c)A Data Object is represented as storage in the computer memory; whereas a Data Value is represented   by a pattern of bits.
d) None of These.

Q25. Which according to the above given passage is NOT a true statement?

a) Some of the Data Objects that exist during program execution are programmer defined.
b) Variables are an instance of programmer defined Data Objects.
c) Run-Time Storage Stacks and file buffers are programmer defined Data Objects.
d) All of these.

Q26. According to the above given passage, what is meant by a Data Object?

a) A container where Data Values are stored and later retrieved.
b) A single number, character or a pointer to another Data Object.
c) A collection of Data Types.
d) None of These.

Q27. Which of the following options can be listed as the central theme of the above given passage?

a) The structure of a Virtual Computer.
b) Distinguishing between Data Objects and Data Values.
c) [a] and [b] Both
d) Investigating the properties that define Data Objects in a programming language.

Q28. The representation of a data value is done by:

a) Sorting out Data Objects
b) Automatic generation during program execution.
c) A particular pattern of bits in the storage of a computer.
d)  None of these.

Directions for questions Q39 - Q43:

A microprocessor is a multipurpose, programmable logic device that reads binary instructions from a storage device called memory, accepts binary data as input and processes data according to those instructions, and provides results as output. A typical programmable machine can be represented with three components: microprocessor, memory and I/O. These three components work together or  interact with each other to perform a given task; thus, they comprise a system. The physical  components of this system are called hardware.

A set of instructions written for the microprocessor to perform a task is called a program, and a group of programs is called software. The microprocessor applications are classified primarily in two categories: reprogrammable systems and embedded systems.

In reprogrammable systems, such as microcomputers, the microprocessor is used for computing and data processing. These systems include general-purpose microprocessors capable of handling large data, mass storage devices [such as disks and CD-ROMs], and peripherals such as printers; a personal computer [PC] is a typical illustration. In embedded systems, the microprocessor is a part of a final product and is not available for reprogramming to the end user.

Q39. What according to the passage comprises a System?

a) Hardware
b) A set of Instructions written for the microprocessor.
c) Binary Data
d) Microprocessor, Memory and Input/Output collectively performing a given task.

Q40. According to the above given passage, the primary function of a Microprocessor is :

b) Accepting Binary Data
c) Processing Data according to binary instructions.
d) All of the above.

Q41. According to the above given passage, what is a program?

a) A group of commands written to perform a task.
b) A group of physical instructions given for the microprocessor.
c) Binary Instructions from a storage device.
d) A group components working and interacting with each other.

Q42. A machine which can be programmed to turn traffic lights on and off, would be described as a:

a) A Hardware
b) A Software
c) A Program
d) None of These.

Q43. Which of the following statements is NOT true according to the passage?

a) Microprocessors are a part of the final product in Embedded Systems.
b) A copying machine is a typical example of a re-programmable system.
c) A personal Computer is a typical example of a re-programmable system.
d) The physical components of a system are called Hardware.
