(iii) 12345
(iv) 25

(c) Write a FORTRAN 90 statement for each of the following formulae: (3)
(i) X = [(ab)/(c + dk/m + k)] + a
(ii) u = e| x2 - y2 |

(viii) v = A

(d) For J = 2 and K = 5, find the final values of J and K after each program segment: (3)
(i) If (J - K) 10, 10, 20
10 J = K
20 J = J + 2
(ii) IF (J .GE. K) J = K + 2
J = J + 2

(e) Suppose J, K and L contain 10, 20 and 30 respectively. Find the value of each of the following logical expressions: (3)
(i) .NOT. (5 .EQ. J - 5 .AND. 2 * K .EQ. J + L)
(ii) 2 * J .EQ. K .AND. K .LE. L

(f) Suppose A, B and C contain 111.222, 444.666 and 777.888 respectively , and (3)
WRITE (*, 100) A, B, C
is executed. Describe the output, if the accompanying FORMAT statement is
(i) 100 FORMAT (1X, F10.2)
(ii) 100 FORMAT (F7.3, 2X, E15.7/F15.2)

(i) A jar contains 6 red balls, 4 green balls, 3 blue balls, and 2 white balls. A sample of size 6 balls is selected at random without replacement. Find the probability that the sample contains 2 red balls, 2 green balls, 1 blue ball, and 1 white ball. (4)

2. (a) Write a FORTRAN function which reads an integer n and then reads n pairs of (x, y) points. For each point (x, y) finds whether the point lies within a circle with center (0, 0) and radius 2 and prints suitable message. (6)

(b) Write a program to convert any n-digit hexadecimal number to its equivalent decimal number. For example, decimal equivalent of AB8F is 43919. (9)

3. (a) A departmental store keeps records of various items in a format (10)

Stock number

Item description

Quantity at hand

Unit
Price

Stock number is a 2-digit number, Item description is a 13-character name of the item and its category/size, Quantity-at-hand is a 4-digit number, which is the number of items in hand/store. Unit price is the price of a single item.

Develop a program to prepare sequential access file consisting of N records, each record refers to one item. The program should be such that it makes the following checks:

  1. the stock number should not lie outside 1 to 99.
  2. the initial data are to be entered from the terminal (unit = 1)
  3. the price of an item should not be negative, and
  4. the number of items of a particular type should not be negative.

(b) For the following frequency distribution, draw (less-than type) frequency polygon:

4. (a) If the probabilities that a person purchasing a new car will choose green, white, red or blue colour are 0.08, 0.09, 0.15 and 0.21 respectively, then what is the probability that a given buyer will choose a new car which has any one of these colours? (4)

(b) The probability that a college student being male and that of being female are 1/8 and 7/8 respectively. The probability that a male student completes the course is 2/3 and that a female student completes the course is 1/3. A student is selected at random and is found to have completed the course. What is the probability that the student is a male? (6)

(c) Let X be the number of 1's obtained in 15 throws of an unbiased dice. Find its mean and variance. (5)
