  • Why the discrepancy What are the advantages / disadvantages of the two voltage systems

  •  Do you know anything about CAD About CAM

  •  What is Industrial Engg What is the difference between Production and Manufacturing

  •  What is ABC analysis What is OR What is queuing What is LAN What is PC, PC /AT What are analog and digital computers

  •  Differentiate between PTA and DMT How is PTA advantageous over DMT

  •  Differentiate between a chemist and a chemical engineer without using any technical terms

  •  There is a box divided into two sections by a movable membrane. Both sides are at NTP. On one side a chemical has been placed

  • and it starts evaporating. What will happen to the membrane How long will it move Will it move in a constant speed or varying

  • speed How do you term this process as (Isothermal or Isobaric)

  •  Have you heard of solids of Revolutions Derive a formula. Name and draw diagrams of 3 such solids.

  •  What is an operating system Explain it to a layman.

  •  Differentiate between Unix, OS–2

  •  What is object oriented programming Name two object oriented programming languages.

  •  What are entities called in ADA

  •  Imagine a truck, with a rectangular box type container closed from all sides airtight with pigeons in it (assume that pigeons will live). There is a drier and cleaner. The Truck is going from place A to B where it comes across a bridge. Since the bridge is weak and it will not be able to bear the weight the cleaner goes to the back and starts banging on the container.

  • This would make pigeons fly within the space available in the container. Hence the truck would become lighter. Then the truck can cross the bridge.

  •  Do you agree/disagree Why Explain
