Q10. Write characteristics of real time operating system.
Q11. What are the shortcomings of static libraries? How these can be resolved?
Q12. Too much milk problem. Write the solution of problem using binary
Q13. Some systems automatically delete all user files when a user logs off or a job terminates, unless the user explicitly requests that they be kept; other systems keep all files unless the user explicitly deletes them. Discuss the relative merits of each approach.
Q14. Difference between DAC and MAC
Q15. How we can handle page fault in virtual machine if utilization of disk become high CPU becomes low.
Q16. How operating system handle I/O operations when an ‘’ABC’” operating system is installed on XYZ system intermediately between user and system while CPU signaling continuously.
