Section – E

Question 33.
Quick Learn University is setting up its academic blocks at Prayag Nagar and planning to set up a network. The university has three academic blocks and one human resource centre as shown in the diagram below: [1 × 5 = 5]

Centre to centre distance between various blocks/centre as follows:

Number of computers in each of the bolcks/centre are as follows:

Law Block 15
Technology Block 40
HR Centre 115
Business Block 25

(i) Suggest the most suitable place (i.e. block/centre) to install the server of this university with a suitable reason.
(ii) Suggest an ideal layout for connecting these blocks/centres for a wired connectivity.
(iii) Which device you will suggest to be placed/installed in each of these blocks/centre to efficiently connect all the computers with in these blocks/centre ?

(v) Local Area Network; Wide Area Network

Question 34.
(a) Mention atleast two limitations of DBMS. [1 + 4 = 5](b) Here is a table Club.

Write the Python code for the following.
Update the Address of member whose Memberld is M003 with Noida.


(a) What are primary and alternate key in a database?
(b) Here is a table Club.

Write the Python code for the following:
Delete the record of those member whose name is Sachin.
(a) Some limitations of DBMS are given below
(i) DBMS requires various software, hardware and highly intelligent people for operating and maintaining the
database system. It increases its cost.
(ii) If database is corrupted due to power failure or any other reason, our valuable data may be lost or whole system stops.


import mysql.connector
mycon = mysql .connector.connect
(host = "localhost”,
user = “Admin”, passwd = “Admin@123”, database = “System”)
cursor = mycon.cursor ( )
cursor.execute (“UPDATE Club SET
Address = “Noida” WHERE Memberld
= “M003”)”)
mycon.commit ( )
except :
mycon.rollback ( )
mycon.close ( )


(a) Primary key is a column or set of columns which helps to identify row uniquely.
Alternate key is a column or set of columns that can act as a primary key but not selected as a primary key.

import mysql. connector
mycon = mysql. connector.connect (host = “localhost”,
user = “Admin”,
passwd = "Admin@123”,
database = “System”)
cursor = mycon.cursor ( )
cursor.execute (“DELETE FROM Club
WHERE MemberName = ‘Sachin’)”
cursor.commit ( )
mycon.roll back ( )
mycon.close ( )

Question 35.
(i) What does csv.writer() function do? [2 + 3 = 5](ii) Given a file “dept.dat”, containing records of departments with following attributes:
Candidate: Name of the candidates Department: Department name like: Computer, Physics, Math, Biology, etc. Write a method copy that would read contents from the file “dept.dat” and creates a file named “com.dat” copying only those records from “dept.dat” where the department name is “Computer”. Assume that is a field separator in “dept.dat”.


(i) What is the use of writerow() function?
(ii) A file “Toys.csv” exists storing details of toys as per following structure :
ToyID Toyname Category Cost


Write a program in Python with functions as follows :
addToy() To append data of toys and store them to the file “Toys.csv” only if the Toy category is “Boys”. Also, display the number of toys added.
showToys() To open the file “Toys.csv” and display records of toys whose cost is above 1000.
(i) The csv.writer() function returns a writer object that converts the user’s ‘data into a delimited string.
This string can later be used to write into CSV files using the writerow() function.


import os
def copy( ):
if not os.path.isfile(f1):
print(f1, “File does not exist”)
for c in dobj:
status=c.rstrip( )
ncom=status.split (’-’)
dept=n com[1]
If(dept==’ Computer’):
cobj.write(name.upper( ) + “-“ + dept.upper() + “\n”)


(i) The writers () method is used to write a single row at a time into a CSV file. We can write a field row using this method.


import csv
def addToy() :
with open(”Toys.csv”,”a") as f:
dt = writer(f)
cat =""
while True:
tid= int(input(”Enter toyid:”))
tname = input(”Enter toy name:”)
cat = input(”Enter category:”)
cost= int(input(”Enter cost:”))
dt.writerow([tid, tname, cat, cost])
print(”Record has been added.”)
print(”Want to add more record? Type YES!!!”)
ch = input()
ch = ch.upper( )
if ch=="YES”:
f.close( )
def showToys( ):
with open(”Toys.csv”, ‘r’) as tfile:
reader = csv.reader(tfile)
for row in reader:
if int(row[3])>1000:
tfile.cose( )
