Operating Systems Quiz with Answers - 8


1. Compulsory misses in a cache can be reduced with prefetching.
(a) TRUE                                                   (b) FALSE
Answer: TRUE. If the data is prefetched, it will already be in memory, so when that data is accessed the first time, there will not be a compulsory miss. [source: UCB]

2. A process in user mode cannot execute certain privileged hardware instructions.
(a) TRUE                                                   (b) FALSE
Answer: TRUE. The hardware allows privileged instruction to be executed only in kernel mode. If an attempt to execute a privileged instruction in user mode, the hardware does not execute the instruction but rather treat it as illegal and traps it to the operating system. [source: IITB]

3. Non-volatile Ram (NVRAM) can improve the durability of a file system that uses delayed writes.
(a) TRUE                                                   (b) FALSE
Answer: TRUE. Data that has been buffered for delayed writes can be stored in NVRAM. If a power failure occurs before the data is written out to disk, the data can be recovered from the NVRAM. [source: UCB]

4. A context switch can occur only after processing a timer interrupt, but not after any other system call or interrupt.
(a) TRUE                                                   (b) FALSE
Answer: FALSE. It can occur after timer interrupt, wait system call, process termination and I/O interrupt. [source: IITB]

5. Context-switching between threads of the same process requires flushing the TLB or tracking an ASID in the TLB.
(a) TRUE                                                   (b) FALSE
Answer: FALSE. Threads are part of the same address space so they have the same address translations as one another. [source: Wisconsin]
