Detailed Answers

Solution
1,2,3 In this question we have to find exact values of three variables A, B and C. So, let us start with the procedure. Here in step 2 we have declared three variables A, B, C and also initialized them to 0. In step 5, variable A is getting incremented if Mathematics marks of a student is less than 50 which means we are counting the number of students who have secured less than 50 marks in Mathematics. In step 6, variable B
is getting incremented if Physics marks of a student is less than 50 which means we are counting the number of students who have secured less than 50 marks in Physics. In step 7 we are checking for the students whose Chemistry marks are less than 50 which means variable C is counting the number of students who secured less than 50 marks in Chemistry. It is a repeat step which indicates that this procedure is getting executed on all the cards available in the dataset. Therefore, if we compile all the Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry marks from the dataset

4. Let us analyze the given procedure, in Step 2 two variables A and B are initialized to 0. In Step 5 variable A is getting incremented if PartOfSpeech is “Verb” which means variable A is counting number of Verbs. Conditions in Steps 6 and 7 are exactly opposite to each other. As per the combination of Steps 6 and 9 we are counting nouns with variable A until we reach to a full stop. In other words, we are counting number of
Verbs in each sentence. As per Step 7 if a sentence ends and Verb count in variable A is greater than 1 then we are incrementing variable B. Step 8 resets the value of variable A so that the same variable can be used
to count number of Verbs in the next sentence. Based on this analysis we can conclude that the variable B gets incremented only if variable A’s value is greater than 1 which means if A is 2 or more. Hence, the
answer of this question is Total number of sentences with at least two verbs in it.

5. In Step 1 cards are arranged into a single pile and which is called as Pile 1. In Step 2 we are creating two variables called A and B then assigning the value 0 to them. Step 3 checks whether the iteration has to be continued or not. If the pile 1 is empty then the iteration has to be stopped. In Step 4, the top card of the Pile 1 is taken and read. Now, one has to count the number of people who are born in the first half of the
year and who are born in the second half of the year. In Step 5, we increment A if a student is born from 1st January to 30th June. In Step 6, we increment B if a student is born from 1st July to 31st December. In Step 7, the current card is moved to another called Pile 2 and the procedures are repeated from Step 3. After reading all cards, variables A and B will store the number of students whose Date Of Birth are in the first and
the second half of the year respectively. So to verify the hypothesis, the values of A and B should be compared with each other. If the value of A is less than B it will confirm the hypothesis to be True and if the
value of A is greater than or equal to B it will confirm the hypothesis to be False. Hence, Step 8 and 9 are incorrect. The correct answers are (c) and (d).

6,7.  Variables A, B, C, and X are initialized to 0 in Step 2. In Step 5 variable A’s value will be set to 1 if “Suresh” has a shopping bill from “SV stores”. Similarly, in Step 6 variable B’s value will be set to 1 if he has a bill from
“Big Bazaar” and variable C’s value for “Sun General” in Step 7. In Step 9 value of X is updated to with sum of A, B and C. Values of variables A, B and C either 1 or 0 based on the information if “Suresh” has visited the corresponding shop or not. Therefore, X will store the number of distinct shops visited by Suresh.
