Option 1 : top< N  Option 2 : top  Option 3 : top > 0  Option 4 : top > 1  


Ques 164 : Choose the correct answer  
A stack is implemented as a linear array A[0…N1]. Noor writes the following functions for popping an element from the stack. function POP( top, N ) { if(X) { top = top – 1 } else { print “Underflow” } return top }Fill in the condition X 

Option 1 : top< N1  Option 2 : top  Option 3 : top>1  Option 4 : top >= 0  


Ques 165 : Choose the correct answer  
Q is an empty queue. The following operations are done on it: ADD 5 ADD 7 ADD 46 DELETE ADD 13 DELETE DELETE ADD 10 What will be the content of Q after these operations. Front is marked by (F) and Rear is marked by (R). 

Option 1 : 10(R) 13(F)  Option 2 : 5(R) 10(F)  Option 3 : 13(R) 10(F)  Option 4 : 10(R) 5(F)  


Ques 166 : Choose the correct answer  
A queue is implemented as a (singly linked) linkedlist for easy addition and deletion of elements. Each node has an element and pointer to another node. Which node will point to empty/no location?  
Option 1 : Front  Option 2 : Rear  Option 3 : Both  Option 4 : None of these  


Ques 167 : Choose the correct answer  
A stack is implemented as a (singlylinked) linkedlist, where each node contains data and address of another node. The top node will contain the address of which node?  
Option 1 : No node. It will be empty  Option 2 : The node containing the first element pushed into the stack.  Option 3 : The node containing the element which was pushed just before the top element.  Option 4 : None of these  


Ques 168 : Choose the correct answer  
A queue is implemented by a linear array of size 10 (and not as a circularly connected array). Front and Rear are represented as an index in the array. To add an element, the rear index is incremented and the element is added. To delete an element, the front index is incremented. The following operations are done on an empty queue. ADD 1; DELETE; ADD 2; ADD 3; ADD 4; DELETE, DELETE After this set of operations, what is the maximum capacity of the queue? 

Option 1 : 6  Option 2 : 7  Option 3 : 10  Option 4 : None of these  


Ques 169 : Choose the correct answer  
A queue is implemented as a (singly linked) linkedlist. Each node has an element and pointer to another node. Rear and Front contain the addresses of the rear and front node respectively. If the condition (rear isequal front) is true and neither is NULL, what do we infer about the linked list?  
Option 1 : It has no elements  Option 2 : It has one element  Option 3 : There is an error  Option 4 : None of these  


Ques 170 : Choose the correct answer  
Jaswinder has a book of tickets and wants to store ticket numbers in a data structure. New tickets are added to the end of the booklet. Ticket at the top of the stack is issued to the customer. Which data structure should Jaswinder use to represent the ticket booklet?
