Section A
[Each question carries 1 mark]

Question 1.
_____ software is made to perform a specific task.
(A) System
(B) Application
(C) Utility
(D) None of these [1]Answer:
(B) Application

An application program is a computer program designed to carry out a specific task other than one relating to the operation of the computer itself, typically to be used by end-users.

Question 2.
State TRUE or FALSE. [1]Idempotent law states that:
X.X’ =X and X+X’ = X

Idempotent Law states:

  1. A.A = A
  2. A + A = A

Question 3.
In binary, (7)8 is represented by [1](A) (101)2
(B) (011)2
(C) (110)2
(D) (111)2
(D) (111)2

Explanation: The binary equivalent of octal (7)8 is (111)2.

Question 4.
Which of the following is not a sequence datatype in Python? [1](A) List
(B) Tuple
(C) Set
(D) String
(C) Set

In Python, the list, tuple, and string are all sequence datatypes, meaning they can hold multiple values in a specific order. They allow indexing and slicing operations.

However, a set is not considered a sequence datatype. Sets are unordered collections of unique elements, and they do not maintain any specific order.

Question 5.
What is the difference between the i s and == operators in Python? [1](A) Both is and == operators check for value equality.
(B) The is operator checks for object identity, while == checks for value equality.
(C) The is operator checks for value equality, while == checks for object identity.
(D) Both is and == operators check for object identity.
(B) The is operator checks for object identity, while == checks for value equality.

In Python, the is operator is used to check if two objects refer to the same memory location, indicating object identity. It compares the memory addresses of the objects.
On the other hand, the == operator is used to check if two objects have the same value or content, indicating value equality. It compares the values of the objects.

Question 6.
Which of the following is the least restrictive open_source license? [1](A) MIT
(D) Apache

Among the options provided, the MIT License (option A) is the least restrictive open source license. It allows users to freely use, modify, distribute, and sublicense the software without imposing any restrictions.

In comparison, the BSD License is also a permissive open-source license, but it may have slightly more restrictive clauses in certain variants.

The GNUGPL (GNU General Public License) (option C) and Apache License (option D) are more restrictive licenses compared to MIT and BSD.

Question 7.
Rudra wants to divide a number and store the result without decimal places into an integer variable. Suggest him an appropriate operator from the following:[1](A) /
(B) %
(C) //
(D) Both (A) & (B)
(C) //

Floor Division (//) – The division of operands where the result is the quotient in which the digits after the decimal point are removed.

Question 8.
Which of the following is not a mutable data type? [1](A) Lists
(B) Dictionaries
(C) Sets
(D) Tuples
(D) Tuples

Mutable data types can change their values in place e.g. Lists and dictionaries.

Question 9.
What will be the output? [1]

sum = 0
for i in x:
if i.isdigit():
sum+= int(i)

(A) 6
(B) 4
(C) 0
(D) None of these
(B) 4

The isdigit () function returns True if the specified string is a number, otherwise False. Here, only 1st and last elements are numbers, so their values are added to sum, which becomes 4.

Question 10.
Which of the following Python code will give different output from the others? [1](A) for i in range(0, 5) :
(B) for j in [0,1,2,3,4]:
print (j)
(C) for k in [0,1,2,3,4,5]:
(D) for 1 in range(0,5,1) :
(C) for k in [0,1,2,3,4,5]:

In option C, all the values will be printed, which are from 0 to 5 (both inclusive). Similarly, in option B, values are printed upto 4. In options A & D, values are printed from 0 to 5, but excluding 5. Therefore, C is the different one.

Question 11.
Which of the following will result in an error? [1]


(A) print(st [2])
(B) st[l]=”Wow”
(C) print(st[0:5])
(D) Both (B) and (C)
(B) st[l]=”Wow”

Strings are immutable. So, new values cannot be assigned at any index position in a string.

Question 12.
What will be the output of the below Python code? [1]

list1=[5, 3, 9, 0]
print(list1[: : -1])

(A) [0,9,3,5](B) [0](C) [9](D) [5, 3, 9, 0]Answer:
(A) [0,9,3,5]

The negative indexing is the act of indexing from the end of the list with indexing starting at -1 i.e. -1 gives the last element of list, -2 gives the second last element of list and so on.

Question 13.
What will be the output of the below Python code? [1]

tup1=('a', 'b', 2)

(A) (‘a’, ‘b’, 2, ‘a’, ‘b’, 2)
(B) (‘a’,’b’,4)
(C) (‘a’, ‘a’, ‘b’, ‘b’, 2, 2)
(D) Error
(A) (‘a’, ‘b’, 2, ‘a’, ‘b’, 2)

The * operator concatenates multiple copies of the same.

Question 14.
Predict the output of the following code if: [1]

mydict = {'a':23,'b': '78','c':89,
del mydict['c']
print( mydict)

(A) {‘a’:23,’b’: ’78’,’c’:89,’d’:36}
(B) {‘a’:23,’b’: ’78’,’d’:36}
(C) {‘a’:23,’b’: ’78’,89, ‘d’:36}
(D) {‘a’:23, ‘b’: ’78’, ‘d’:89, ‘e’:36}
(B) {‘a’:23,’b’: ’78’,’d’:36}

del keyword is used to remove individual items or the entire dictionary itself. Here, del keyword removed the key ‘c’ from the dictionary, along with its value.

Question 15.
When someone steals someone else’s personal information to commit theft or fraud, it is called________ [1](A) Identity theft
(B) Hacking
(C) Computer piracy
(D) Infringement
(A) Identity theft

Identity theft is the crime of obtaining the personal or financial information of another person to use their identity to commit fraud, such as making unauthorized transactions or purchases. Identity theft is committed in many different ways and its victims are typically left with damage to their credit, finances, and reputation.

Question 16.
One of the cultural changes induced by the technology is: [1](A) people have lost a deeper understanding of their culture.
(B) going out for lunch and dinner has become a culture
(C) people love to go shopping
(D) All of the above
(A) people have lost a deeper understanding of their culture.

Technology has a crucial impact on fundamental aspects of all our cultures including language, art, mobility, education and religion.

Q17 and 18 are ASSERTION (A) AND REASONING (R) based questions. Mark the correct choice as
(A) Both A and R are true and R is the correct explanation of A
(B) Both A and R are true but R is not the correct explanation of A
(C) A is true but R is false
(D) A is false but R is true

Question 17.
Assertion (A): The IT Act 2000 does not protect from Child Pornography. [1]Reason (R):  IT Act section 67 was amended to ensure that browsing sites of Child Pornography is also an Offence.
(D) A is false but R is true

Child pornography is an illegal act in India. Information Technology Act, 2000 & Indian Penal Code, 1860 gives protection against the child pornography. Child refers to a person who is below the age of 18 years.

Question 18.
Assertion (A): a* *b is used for power, i.e., ab
Reason (R): <, > operators are similar to ! = operator [1]Answer:
(B) Both A and R are true but R is not the correct explanation of A

The power operator in python is a**b, i.e., 2**3=8. Also <,>&!= are all relational operators and are therefore similar. But the reasoning is not correct for the given assertion.

Section B

Convert the following loop into for loop:

print (x*10)


Statement Expression
Represents a command or instruction Used in calculations, assignments, etc.
May or may not produce a value Always has a value
e.g., 5+3, x*y e.g., x=5, print(‘Hii’), if-else blocks
Executes the instructions in the statement Can be evaluated to obtain a value


for x in range(4,9,2):
print(x* 10)

Question 22.
What will be the output of the following code if the input is given: [2](i) abbcca
(ii) bccabc

string = input ("Enter a string:'')
count = 0
while True :
if string[0] == 'a' :
string = string[2:]
elif string[-1] == 'b':
string = string [:2]
else :


What will be the output of the following statements?


list1 = [12, 32, 65, 26, 80, 10]


list1 = [12, 32, 65, 26, 80, 10]


list1 = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10]
print (list1[: :-2])
print(list1 [:3] + list1[3:])


list1 = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

(i) bcca
(ii) bccabc


(i) In the first iteration of the while loop, the condition string[0] = = ‘a’ is satisfied, so the first two characters are removed. The updated string becomes “bcca”. In the second iteration, the condition string [-1] == ‘b’is not satisfied, so the else block is executed. The count is incremented by 1, and the while loop is exited.

(ii) In the first iteration of the while loop, the condition string [0] == ‘a’ orstring[-1] == ‘b’ is not satisfied, so the else block is executed. It increments the count to 1 and breaks the loop. The original string is printed because no conditions were satisfied.


(i) [10, 12, 26, 32, 65, 80](ii) [12, 32, 65, 26, 80, 10](iii) [10, 8, 6, 4, 2][1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10](iv) 5


(i) sort() function sorts the original list in-place, which is then printed.

(ii) sorted () function sorts the list, but returns a new copy and does not update the original list. Due to this, the original list remains un-sorted.

(iii) 1st print statement prints the alternate elements in list1, in reverse order. The 2nd statement prints the whole list, as the stop index and start index of the slicing operations are same and, therefore the remaining list from 1st slicing is added later.

(iv) The last element of list is printed.

Question 23.
If d={‘math’: 45, ‘english’, 60, ‘science’: 65, ‘computer science’: 70} [2]What will be the output of the following?

Start with the list [8, 9,10]. Do the following using list functions:
(i) Set the second entry (index 1) to 17
(ii) Add 4,5 and 6 to the end of the list
(iii) Remove the first entry from the list
(iv) Insert 25 at index 3
(i) 4
(ii) [‘math’, ‘english’, ‘science’, ‘computer science’](iii) 60
(iv) ‘70


  1. the length of the dictionary is printed
  2. The keys of the dictionary are printed using keys ()
  3. The value of ‘English’ key in the dictionary is printed,
  4. values () function returns the list of all values in the dictionary, and then max is picked from it.


listA = [8,9,10](i) listA[1] = 17
(ii) listA.extend([4, 5, 6])
(iii) listA.pop(0)
(iv) listA.insert(3, 25)

  2. Web Server and Database: Every website has its own database. When the user enters data and fills it up, it can be saved in the database.

Section C
[Each question carries 3 marks]

Question 26.
Differentiate between DRAM and SRAM. [3]Answer:

(i) A DRAM cell consists of only one transistor and one capacitor. A SRAM consists of internal flip-flops.
(ii) It has a large number of cells packed within the chip. The number of cells on a SRAM chip is less.
(iii) It needs to be refreshed (about thousand times in a second) to retain the stored data. It retains data as long as the power is supplied to it i.e., there is no need to refresh it.
(iv) DRAMs are      used in primary storage sections of most computers. SRAMs are used in specialized applications.

Question 27.
Name four Python’s basic data types. Why are they called so? [3]Answer:
The four basic data types are :

(i) Number
(ii) Sequences
(iii) Sets
(iv) Maps.

These are called so because:

(i) Number data type stores numerical values and is immutable. These are of 3 types :

a. Integer and Long
b. Float/Floating point
c. Complex

(ii) Sequence is an ordered collection of items (just like a logical sequence series), indexed by positive integers. It is a combination of mutable and non- mutable data types. Three types of sequence data types available in Python are strings, lists and tuples.

(iii) Sets is an unordered collection of values of any type, with no duplicate entry. Sets are immutable, e.g., S = set ([1, 2, 3, 4])

(iv) Mapping data types are unordered and mutable. They map one key to one or more values, e.g., Dictonaries.

Question 28.
Write a Python program to find the number of times a maximum occurring element occurs in a list. [3]Answer:

1st = input().split()
count_dict = { }
for element in 1st:
# If the element is already in the dictionary, increment its count by 1 if element in count_dict:
count_dict[element] += 1
# If the element is not in the dictionary, add it with an initial count of 1
count_dict[element] = 1
# Find the maximum count
max_count = max(count_dict.values())

Question 29.
Write a program to add all the values in the tuple of marks t= (23, 11, 41, 56, 1) which ends with 1 and display their sum. [3]


Write the output of the following code:
A= {10:100,20:200,30:3000,40:4000,50:5000}
(i) print (A.items( ))
(ii) print(A.keys( ))
(iii) print(A.values( ))

t = (23, 11, 41, 56, 1)
for i in t:
if i%10==1:
print(i, end=' ')
print("\nSum ends with 1 is:",s)


(i) dict_items ([ (10, 100), (20, 200), (30, 3000), (40, 4000), (50, 5000)])
(ii) dict_keys ([10, 20, 30, 40, 50])
(iii) dict_values ([100, 200, 3000, 4000, 5000])

items () prints the key, value pair of the dictionary, whereas keys () returns a list of ah the keys, and values () returns a list of all the values.

Question 30.
List the guidelines to avoid plagiarism. [3]Answer:
Follow the below given guidelines to avoid plagiarism:

  • To avoid plagiarism, instead of directly copying the language of the book as it is, understand it and try to put it in your own language/words.
  • If copying someone else’s work in your work, word for word, then do not forget to enclose it in quotes and also mention its source.
  • Give credit to the author whose work you are using.

Section D
[Each question carries 4 marks]

Question 31.
Why is it important to recycle e-waste? Give 4 distinct points. [4]Answer:
Recycling e-waste, or electronic waste, is crucial for severed reasons:

  1. Prevents toxic pollution: E-waste contains harmful substances that can pollute the environment if not recycled.
  2. Reduces landfill waste: Recycling e-waste helps minimize the amount of electronic waste sent to landfills, conserving valuable space.
  3. Conservation of resources: E-waste recycling allows for the recovery of valuable materials like metals and plastics, reducing the need for virgin resource extraction.
  4. Energy savings: Recycling e-waste requires less energy compared to manufacturing products from raw materials, leading to energy conservation.

Question 32.
Write a Python program to input space-separated list of student heights and calculate the average height of
students in the class and median. Also calculate the most common height, i.e., the mode. [4]Answer:

import statistics
heights = input("Enter space-separated heights").split()
avg = statistics.mean(heights)
print("Average height in the class:",avg)
median_value median(heights) = statistics.median(heights)
print("Median value for heights:",median_value)
mode = statistics.mode(heights)
print("Mode value for heights:", mode)

Section E
[Each question carries 5 marks]

Question 33.
Draw a flowchart to check whether a given number is an Armstrong number. An Armstrong number of three digits is an integer such that the sum of the cubes of its digits is equal to the number itself. For example, 371 is an
Armstrong number since 3* *3 + 7* *3 + 1 * *3 = 371. [5]


Write a program to print the following pattern:
1 2 3 4 5
1 2 3 4
1 2 3
1 2


n = 5
for i in range (n, 0, -1): # Loop for the rows
for j in range(n - i): # Loop for the spaces before each row
print(" ", end="")
for j in ranged, i ,+ 1) : # Loop for the numbers in each row
print (j, end=" ”)
print() # Move to the next line after printing a row

Question 34.
Write a program to read a list of elements. Modify this list so that it does not contain any duplicate elements, i.e.,
all elements occurring multiple times in the list should appear only once. [5]


(i) If a is [1,2,3](a) What is the difference (if any) between a * 3 and [a, a, a]?
(b) is a * 3 equivalent to a + a + a? 2
(ii) What does each of the following expressions evaluate to? Suppose that L is the list
[“These”, [“are”, “a”, “few”, “words”], “that”, “we”, “will”, “use”].

  • L[1] [0: : 2]
  • “a” in L[1][0]
  • L [: 1 ] + L [ 1 ] [3]


n = int(input("How many elements you want to enter in a list?"))
ol=[ ]
for i in range(n):
e = int(input("Enter the element :") )
len = len(ol)
#Sorting the list to bring duplicate elements together
print("Original List is : ", ol)
#Iterating over the list to remove consecutive duplicate elements
if ol[c] == ol[c+1]:
ol.pop(c) #Removing element if next element is same
print("List after removing duplicate Values is : ",ol)



a) a * 3 ⇒ [1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3][a, a, a] ⇒ [[1, 2, 3], [1, 2, 3], [1, 2, 3]]So, a * 3 repeats the elements of the list whereas [a, a, a] creates nested list.

b) Yes, both a * 3 and a + a + a will result in [1,2,3, 1,2,3,1,2,3]


  • [‘are’, ‘few’]L[1] returns [“are”, “a”, “few”, “words”]. L[1][0::2] returns a slice of [“are”, “a”, “few”, “words”] starting at index 0 covering every alternate element till the end of the list. So, final output is [‘are’, ‘few’].
  • True
    L[1][0] is “are”. As “a” is present in “are” so output is True.
  • [‘These’, ‘are’, ‘a’, ‘few’, ‘words’]L[:1] return L[0] i.e. [“These”]. L[1] returns [“are”, “a”, “few”, “words”]. + operator adds the two in a single list to give the final output as [‘These’, ‘are’, ‘a’, ‘few’, ‘words’].

Question 35.
Write a python program as per the steps given: [5](i) Take user-input in a string.
(ii) Calculate and store the frequency of each character in string
(iii) Sort the characters based on increasing frequency. If a tie occurs, sort as per the alphabetical order.
(iv) Update the string and print the answer.
Part (i):

User input
str = input("Enter a string: ")

Part (ii):

Count the frequency of each
frequency = { }
for ch in str:
if ch in frequency:
frequency[ch] += 1
frequency[ch] = 1
Part (iii): Sort the characters based on frequency and alphabetical order sorted_chars = sorted(frequency, key=lambda x: (-frequency[x], x))
Part (iv): Create the sorted string and return the
result sorted_string = ''.join(sorted_chars)
