5. A DMA controller transfers 32-bit words to memory using cycle Stealing. The words are assembled from a device that transmits characters at a rate of 4800 characters per second. The CPU is fetching and executing instructions at an average rate of one million instructions per second. By how much will the CPU be slowed down because of the DMA transfer?

(1) 0.06%         

(2) 0.12%

(3) 1.2%           

(4) 2.5%

Ans: (2)


6. A CPU handles interrupt by executing interrupt service subroutine……………..

(1) by checking interrupt register after execution of each instruction

(2) by checking interrupt register at the end of the fetch cycle

(3) whenever an interrupt is registered

(4) by checking interrupt register at regular time interval

Ans: (1)
