       B. Circuit switching

       C. Data switching

       D. Packet & Circuit switching

Ans : Circuit switching

Q.3 Which multiplexing technique used to transmit digital signals?

       A. FDM

       B. TDM

       C. WDM

       D. FDM & WDM

Ans : TDM

Q.4 If there are n signal sources of same data rate, then the TDM link has _______ slots.

       A. n

       B. n/2

       C. n*2

       D. 2n

Ans : n

Q.5 If link transmits 4000 frames per second, and each slot has 8 bits, the transmission rate of circuit this TDM is _________.

       A. 32kbps

       B. 500bps

       C. 500bps

       D. 32bps

Ans : 32kbps

Frame rate = 4000/sec and number of bits in slot = 8

Transmission rate = (4000 * 8) bps
= 32000bps
= 32kbps

       A. Efficiency

       B. Privacy

       C. Anti jamming

       D. Both Efficiency & Privacy

Ans : Both Efficiency & Privacy

       A. Greater than

       B. Lesser than

       C. Equal to

       D. Equal to or greater than

Ans : Greater than

Q.9 In TDM, slots are further divided into _________.

       A. Seconds

       B. Frames

       C. Packets

       D. Bits

Ans : Frames
