Start Practice Exam Test Questions

Choose the letter of the best answer in each questions.

1. All the instructions that the hardware of a processor can directly decode and execute is called

  • (a) pseudocode
  • (b) a flowchart
  • (c) an assembly program
  • (d) the instruction set

2. All of the following are instruction types except

  • (a) conditional instructions
  • (b) pseudocode instructions
  • (c) loop instructions
  • (d) branching instructions

3. One disadvantage of flowcharts is that

  • (a) the process flow of a program is difficult to follow in a flowchart
  • (b) it is not possible for flowcharts to represent large programs
  • (c) process flow is not always the best way to represent a program
  • (d) flowcharts cannot distinguish between WHILE-DO and REPEAT-UNTIL loops

4. An advantage of pseudocode is that it

  • (a) uses easily recognized and distinctively-shaped symbols
  • (b) shows the overall process flow of a program better than a flowchart
  • (c) provides a high level of structure for implementing the final program
  • (d) changes to the final program code do not affect the pseudocode

5. A basic automated test system consists of all the following components except

  • (a) a connection to access the Internet
  • (b) a test fixture
  • (c) the unit under test
  • (d) a test controller

6. The component that physically connects the UUT to the rest of the automated test system is the

  • (a) test controller
  • (b) test instrumentation
  • (c) test equipment
  • (d) test fixture

7. The test fixture consists of

  • (a) the test controller and unit under test
  • (b) the test equipment and test instrumentation
  • (c) electromechanical relays and silicon controlled switches
  • (d) the switching control and switching circuitry

8. Simple sequential programs can include any instructions except

  • (a) I/O instructions
  • (b) arithmetic instructions
  • (c) branching instructions
  • (d) assembly language instructions

9. Simple sequential programs

  • (a) have limited applications
  • (b) have nonlinear structures
  • (c) cannot be represented with flowcharts
  • (d) cannot be represented with pseudocode

10. Conditional execution

  • (a) limits the power and usefulness of programs
  • (b) uses the decision block in flowcharts
  • (c) is always limited to two alternatives
  • (d) always sequences through the same instructions

11. The IF-THEN-ELSE instruction

  • (a) is a special form of the more general IF-THEN instruction
  • (b) provides three alternative sequences of instructions
  • (c) implements the most basic form of conditional execution
  • (d) is a theoretical construct with no practical application in programming

12. The CASE instruction

  • (a) must determine whether a program value is equal to or not equal to specific values
  • (b) implements the most basic form of conditional execution
  • (c) is limited to two alternative sequences of instructions
  • (d) is another name for an IF-THEN instruction

13. An infinite loop

  • (a) has no practical value and is never used
  • (b) is used in operating systems and other specialized applications
  • (c) is another name for an unconditional loop
  • (d) occurs only when intended

14. The difference between a WHILE-DO instruction and REPEAT-UNTIL instruction is

  • (a) the WHILE-DO instruction loops when a condition is False
  • (b) the WHILE-DO loop always executes at least once
  • (c) the REPEAT-UNTIL loop tests the loop condition at the end of the loop
  • (d) the two are identical

15. A FOR-TO-STEP instruction with a STEP value of 0 will

  • (a) probably result in an infinite loop
  • (b) set the initial index value to 0
  • (c) exit when the index value reaches 0
  • (d) never execute

16. The difference between general branch instructions and conditional or loop instructions is

  • (a) general branch instructions can create infinite loops and conditional or loop instructions cannot
  • (b) conditional and loop instructions execute faster than general branch instructions
  • (c) general branch instructions are available only in low-level languages
  • (d) a conditional or loop instruction implicitly specifies the next instruction to execute

17. Subroutine calls differ from general branch instructions in that

  • (a) subroutine calls to programs use labels and general branch instructions do not
  • (b) subroutine calls allow the program to resume execution at the instruction immediately following the call to the subroutine
  • (c) general branch instructions use a special section of memory called the stack
  • (d) subroutine calls can be nested and general branch instructions cannot

18. Another name for a subroutine is

  • (a) a procedure
  • (b) a stack
  • (c) a flowchart
  • (d) a process flow
