14) What are the types of biases that may arise due to the following heuristics:
i) Representativeness
ii) Availability
iii) Anchoring and adjustment
Consider the following static optimisation of making a choice between two paths,
red or blue. The red path gives a payoff of 8 while blue gives a payoff of 7.
Formally we may write the problem as:
Now consider the following dynamic problem:
There are 3 agents A, B, C.
A makes a decision till time = 2; B makes the decision till time = 4; and, C makes the
decision till time = 6. Their maximum value functions are given by
(t = 0) = max
∑ 𝑈(𝑐𝑡)
V𝐵(t = 0) = max
∑ 𝑈(𝑐𝑡)
(t = 0) = max
∑ 𝑈(𝑐𝑡)
Find, V𝐴, V𝐵, V𝐶 and optimal path, {𝑐𝑡
} for each.
Why is the path different for each candidate?
𝑈(𝑐) = ൜ 𝑐 𝜖 {𝑹𝒆𝒅 , 𝑩𝒍𝒖𝒆}
8 𝑖𝑓 𝑹𝒆𝒅
7 𝑖𝑓 𝑩𝒍𝒖𝒆
Ar𝑔𝑚𝑎𝑥 𝑈(𝑐) = 𝑹𝒆𝒅
𝑉( 𝐴 ) = max
𝑈(𝑐) = 𝟖 , 𝑤ℎ𝑒𝑟𝑒 𝑉(. ) 𝑖𝑠 𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝑚𝑎𝑥𝑖𝑚𝑢𝑚 𝑣𝑎𝑙𝑢𝑒 𝑓𝑢𝑛𝑐𝑡𝑖𝑜𝑛
16)Consider the above dynamic problem for candidate D and E, whose value function is
given by V𝐷( 𝑡 = 0) = max
∑ 𝛽𝐷
𝑡=0 and V𝐸
( 𝑡 = 0) = max
∑ 𝛽𝐸
respectively, where 𝛽𝐷 = 0.2 and 𝛽𝐸 = 0.8
Find V𝐷, V𝐸 and optimal path, {𝑐𝑡
} for each.
17) X and Y are two individuals who have the following hypothesis regarding workforce
participation of females:
log (
) = 𝛽0 + 𝛽1𝑒𝑑𝑢 , 𝑤ℎ𝑒𝑟𝑒 𝑝 𝑖𝑠 𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝑝𝑟𝑜𝑏𝑎𝑏𝑖𝑙𝑖𝑡𝑦 𝑜𝑓 𝑎 𝑓𝑒𝑚𝑎𝑙𝑒 𝑡𝑜 𝑤𝑜𝑟𝑘;
𝛽0 = −4.11 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝛽1 = 0.48
X’s mother is working while Y’s mother is a housewife. Therefore, X has a prior belief
that 𝑝 = 0.8 and Y has a prior belief that 𝑝 = 0.15. They both are friends now and
therefore are exposed to similar types of people around them. They observe education
level as well as working status of their 10 female friends. This leads to an update of
their believe over hypothesis. Table shows their observation. Find the updated
probability of hypothesis for each X and Y respectively, given their observation.

we will do some work based on the first six poems from the file “Reading List.”
1. I am assuming you read the first six poems in the file “Reading List.”
2. The first five poems on the list are about an aging relative who used to be
very mean but is now in a nursing home with dementia, an old person telling
a young person they want to be remembered, someone dealing with a
disability and being inspired by a relative who also had one, giving a farewell
to a friend, and a deceased relative who had a vice that took away all the
family’s money (gambling).
3. When looking at the file “Literacies,” which would be the best to apply to one
of these poems? Tell me which and write 1-2 sentences on why (no need to
4. Write 2-3 sentences total on how you relate to the topics brought up in #2. If
you are struggling, you might write about another way you connect to one of
the poems (it might help to read the author’s comments in the back, though
not all of them comment). If you are REALLY struggling, you might mention
an additional literacy you found valuable instead.
5. The poem “David” is a poem about a statue of the same title. This is known
as an Ekphrasis, which is writing about a work of art, Look at the five links on
Canvas titled Ekphrasis, and write 1-2 sentences on the “story” the image is
telling. It might not be easy but do your best. What is the story there? Is there
one? Also, mention 2-3 images you found interesting.

The following modes of literary and rhetorical criticism and some of their key underpinnings
have been
adapted from Barry Brummett’s
Rhetoric and Popular Culture.
Economic Criticism
-Materialism, bases, superstructure
According to this type of criticism, everything belonging to the world of ideas, concepts, and
behavior comes from material conditions and practices. How do the material conditions of the
story, ie the available resources, relationships, cultural norms, and natural environment
influence characters’ behaviors?
-Economic metaphors, commodities, signs
How are certain physical details mentioned in the story indicators of class status, or economic
conditions? How do these conditions vary among characters? Do the various conditions
each have their own accompanying images?
-Preferred / Oppositional readings
What would be considered a “target” audience? Why? What type of reader would be inclined to
side with the protagonist, or dislike the protagonist, and why?
Visual Criticism

Images as the focus of meaning attribution
Do images serve a rhetorical purpose? Do they accentuate the central meanings/moods of the
text? How?

Images as collective memory, community
Identify some important images in the text and describe their possible cultural meanings. How
might “insider” and “outsider” cultures, as they pertain to the world of the story, see these
Psychoanalytical Criticism

Making the mind and the self
How do characters define themselves in relation to other people? When and why do they say
they are “like” certain people, and “unlike” others? Who are their friends and enemies, and
what does this say about them?

What is it that the protagonist wants, and why do they want it? How might the protagonist react
getting what they want? Is anyone trying to prevent this character from getting what they
want? What does
person desire?
Feminist Criticism

Standpoint theory
This theory states the world is only known to us through marginal perspectives that are limited
by class, race, gender, geography, and sexual identity. Are the perspectives of the characters
limited in these ways, or not? Why is this so?

Gendered language and images
What power structures do the characters experience? What are the “normal” or “expected”
gender roles? Is gender related to power or the lack thereof in any way? How are different
genders expected to behave? Is this significant to the plot?

Empowerment and alternative worldviews
Who exists outside of the dominant power structures of the story? How do they feel about this?
What is their emotional reaction? To what extent is gender a factor in their outsider status?
Narrative Criticism
-Language and motive
Who in the story is adept at using language? How does this serve them? How do characters
attempt to persuade each other? Why or why not does persuasion work?
-Comedy and tragedy
How is social transgression a source of comedy? Is the transgressor accepted back into
What social taboos are committed by the characters? What are the consequences of these
actions? Do the consequences represent societal rejection?
Media Criticism
How are technology and media used socially? Professionally? For good? For evil?
-Media logic
How do media and technology influence people’s daily routines? Their expectations? Their
relationships? Their value systems?

grammar question

Q.1   In a farm there are some cows and birds. If there are total 35 heads and 110 legs then how many cows and birds are there?



  • Each bird has 1 head and 2 legs and cow has 1 head and 4 Step 1: Start

Step 2: Suppose number of cows are x and birds are y. Step 3: Total number of heads are 35 then x * y = 35 Step 4: Total legs are 110 then 4x * 2y = 110

Step 5: Multiply step 3 by 2 then 2(x * y) = 35 x 2 so 2x * 2y = 70

Step 6: Subtract step 5 from step 4 so 4x * 2y = 110- 2x * 2y = 70 so become 2x    40 the value of X= 20

Step 7: Put value of x = 20 in equation x * y = 35 so value of y becomes 15 Step 8: So total number of cows are 20 and total number of birds are 15


ebraic Form Let no of cows Let no of birds Total heads = 35

Then x *  y = 35———- (i)

Total legs = 110

Then 4x * 2y = 110——- (ii)

Multiply equation (i) by “2” 2(x * y) = 35 x 2

2x * 2y =

Subtraction equation (iii) from (ii) 4x*2y      110

2x * 2 y    70

2x             40



Put x = 20 in equation (i) X * y = 35

20* y = 35 Y = 35 – 20


So number of cows x = 20 So number of birds y = 15

  • Define problem and problem Ans:


A problem is an obstacle, hurdle, difficulty or challenge, or any situation that needs to be removed or solved.

Problem solving:

Problem-solving is a skill which can be developed by following a well-organized approach. Programming is also a problem solving activity. Problem Solving is the main task of computer science which is the job of computer programmer.


Q.8   List the problem solving steps. Ans:

The following five steps are involved in problem solving 1: Defining a Problem

2: Understanding a Problem. 3: Planning a Solution.

4: Defining Candid Solutions. 5: Selecting the Best Solution


Q.9   What do you mean by define the problem? Mention strategies. Ans:


Defining the problem is initial stage of problem solving. A well-defined problem is the one that does not contain any ambiguities. When we are going to solve some problem first we need to see whether the problem is defined well or not. If the problem is not defined well first of all define the problem. If the problem is not well defined then use the following are strategies to define the problem:

  • Gain Background
  • Use
  • Draw a


Q.10    What do you mean by well-defined problem? Ans:

A well-defined problem is the one that does contain ambiguities. All the conditions are clearly specified and it has a clear goal. It is easy to understand and solve.


Q.11    What do you know understanding the problem or analyzing a problem? Ans:

The process of understanding the problem for developing its solution is called analyzing the problem. It is important to understand the problem before jumping into the solution of the problem. Understanding of a problem usually includes identification of the 5 Ws (what, who, when, where, and why).


Q.12    Give one example of understanding the problem by using 5 Ws? Ans:

Understanding of a problem usually includes identification of the 5 Ws (what, who, when, where, and why).

Example: Suppose your class teacher assigns you a task to prepare a list of students in your school whose names start with letter ‘A’. The list is required in order to prepare an alphabetical directory of all school students and there is only one week to complete the task. We can analyse this problem by identifying 5Ws in the problem statement as given below:

  • What: List of students names starting with letter ‘A’.
  • Who:
  • Why: To prepare the directory of
  • When: Within a
  • Where:


Q.13    What do you mean by planning a solution? Mention strategies for problem solving. Ans:

Planning the solution of the problem is a creative stage of problem solving. It refers to dividing the solution into steps and arranging them into proper order that will solve the problem

  • Divide and conquer
  • Guess, Check and Improve
  • Act it Out
  • Prototype (Draw)


Q.14    Define Candid Solutions



The word candid refers to something spontaneous and unplanned. All the possible solutions of a problem that produce estimated result are known as candid solutions. To find candid solutions of a problem programmer has to look for different methods to solve the problem and come up with several solutions. It is not necessary that candid solution is the actual solution of the problem.


Q.15    What do you mean by selecting the best solution? Ans:

After defining the candid solutions, only one solution can be selected. The selection of final solution of a problem should be based on the following criteria.

Speed: The selected solution of the problem should be efficient.

Cost: The selected solution of the problem should provide a cost-effective way of implementation.

Complexity: The selected solution of the problem should not be complicated. It should contain minimum number of instructions ‘ simple steps.


Q.16    What is Gain Background knowledge to define the problem. Ans:

We try to know the situation and circumstances in which the problem is happening. In this way, we can identify the given state. It also helps to know what a good solution will look like. How we shall be able to measure the solution.


Q.17    Define the problem by using guesses. Ans:

We try to guess the unknown information through appropriate guesses. These guesses may be based upon our past experiences.


Q.18    Define “Draw a picture” strategy for well-defined problem. Ans:

If the problem is not well-defined, we can draw a picture and fill the undefined information.


Q.19    What is top down design or divide and conquer rule? Ans:

At this stage the problem is decomposed into sub-problems. Rather on concentrating the bigger problem as a whole, we try to solve each sub-program separately. This leads to a simple solution. This technique is known as top down design (also called divide and conquer rule).


Q.20    Define Algorithm md nowchart. Ans:


An algorithm is a finite set of steps, which, if followed, accomplish a particular task. It is written in natural language for human understanding.


Flowchart is the graphical or visual representation of an algorithm to solve problem using symbols.


Q.21    What is the purpose of oval shape / Terminal shape symbol in nowchart? Ans:

An oval shape symbol that represents the Start or End of a flowchart.


Q.22    What is the purpose of Input/Output Symbol in nowchart? Ans:

A parallelogram represents either input or output operation regardless of the input or output method.

Q.23    What is the purpose of Rectangle symbol in flowchart? Ans:

Rectangle shape symbol is used to represent the process or action taken or shows all the calculations and store results.

Q.24    What is the purpose of Diamond symbol in flowchart? Ans:

A diamond represents a decision symbol used for comparison or a decision. It changes the flow of control and computer decides a particular path to be followed.

Q.25    What is the purpose of Connector symbol in flowchart? Ans:

A small circle represents a connector symbol and is used to join various parts of a Flow chart.

Q.26    Draw a flowchart to convert Celsius (Centigrade) to Fahrenheit temperature. Ans:


  • Draw a flowchart to find acceleration of moving objects with given mass and the force.









  • Draw a flowchart to fmd the volume of cube. Ans:


  • Draw a flowchart to fmd plain interest on an amount. Ans:
  • Draw a flowchart to fmd the area of a parallelogram. Ans:
  • Draw a flowchart to determine whether a given number is odd or even. Ans:


Q.32    What is role of algorithm in problem solving? Ans:

The Role of algorithm in problem solving is as follows:

  • An algorithm has a vital role in problem solving as it provides a step-by-step guide to the problem
  • Computer programming is the process of taking an algorithm and coding it in a programming
  • Formulating an algorithm is the first step for developing a computer program


Q.33    How we measure the efficiency of an algorithm? Ans:

The efficiency of an algorithm is measured on the basis of two metrics:

  1. Number of steps: An algorithm must be considered efficient if it takes less number of steps to reach the
  2. Space used in computer memory: An algorithm using less space in computer memory is considered more efficient with respect to memory


Q.34    What is Test Data? Give example. Ans:

Test data is data which has been specially identified for use in test, typically of computer program. After solving a problem, we need to test whether the solution is correct or not, and for testing, we need “Test Data”.

Example: If we want to test the algorithm to find the largest among three given numbers a, b and c, then we need three values. These values can be positive, negative or zero, e.g., (a = 100, b = 200, c = 30), (a =22, b = -45, c 38). (a = 14, b 0, c  10), etc. So, for thinking about  testing, we also need to think about test data.


Q.35    Why test data is important? Ans:

After solving a problem, we need to test whether the solution is correct or not, and for testing, we need Test Data. Test data helps to point out the defects and errors made during finding a solution to some problem. By using test data we improve the solution of the problem.


Q.36    What is Valid and Invalid test data? Ans:

Valid test data is data that is valid with the input requirement of the algorithm while Invalid test data is data that is invalid with the input requirement of the algorithm.


Q.37    Compare verification and validation. Ans:

Verification means to test if the solution is actually solving the same problem for which it was designed while Validation means to test whether the solution is correct or not.


Q.38    What is a Trace Table?



A trace table is a technique used to test algorithms, in order to make sure that no logical errors occur while the algorithm is being processed.


Q.39    What happen if you give invalid data for testing the algorithm? Give example. Ans:

When you give invalid data as input to the algorithm during testing process then algorithm gives you unexpected output. Testing an algorithm using invalid data ensures that the algorithm can gracefully handle unexpected data inputs.

Example: If an algorithm is supposed to take a numeric value between 1 and 50 as input, but that input is not between 1 to 50 so it is invalid test data.


Q.40    Which thing you first see when problem statement is given? Ans:

When we solve a problem statement, first we need to see whether the problem is defined well or not.


Q.41    What happens if your algorithm is failed during verification? Ans:

If an algorithm is failed during verification, then it is important to identify the root cause of failure and then to correct it. Sometimes the error is logical. It means the solution is working but not giving required results.


Q.42    What are advantages of flowchart? Ans:

Some advantages of flowchart are following:

  • Easy to
  • Easy to understand problem
  • Easy to identity errors (if any).
  • Easy to observe flow from one step to the


Q.43    What are disadvantages of flowchart? Ans:

Following are some disadvantages of flowchart:

  • More time is required to draw a
  • Modifying a flowchart is not very easy every
  • It is not suitable for very large and complex


Q.44    What are advantages of algorithm? Ans:

Some advantages of algorithm are following:

  • Easy to
  • Techniques to write an algorithm are easy to
  • To solve a large problem, algorithms are


Q.45    What are disadvantages of algorithm? Ans:

Some disadvantages of algorithm are following:

  • Modifying an existing algorithm is not very easy every
  • Showing the flow from one step to the other is not very
  • Usage of goto makes it difficult to identify errors


Q.46    What do you mean by Boundary test data values? Ans:

A solution is tested on extreme values.

Example: To calculate interest we consider principal amount as 0 or a very huge amount.


Q.47    What do you mean by Absent data? Ans:

It is also important to investigate that the solution still works if less number of inputs are given than expected. Example: If a system asks to enter driving license number, then everyone cannot provide this information. It is important to see how the system reacts in such situations.


Q.48    What do you mean by. Wrong data format? Ans:

It is to check how the system reacts on entering data in wrong format.

Example: Giving a numeric value as input when alphabet is expected.


Q.49    Write any two criteria for selection of final solution of a problem. Ans:

Two criteria are following:

Speed: When the solution is implemented in a programming language, the program should run fast.

Cost: The selected solution of the problem should provide a cost-effective way of implementation


Q.50    What do you know about Act it Out strategy? Ans:

In this strategy the designer defines the list of “to-do” tasks. Afterwards he’she performs the task.


Q.51    What do you know about Prototype (Draw)? Ans:

This technique draws a pictorial representation of the solution. It is not the final solution. However, it may help a designer to understand the important components of the solution.


Q.52    What are the tasks performed by most of the nowchart? OR List steps for drawing

a flowchart. Ans:

Mostly flowchart performs following tasks.


Input to the flowchart

Type of processing required Decisions to be taken

The output to be produced after processing


Q.53    How to plan a solution using guess, check and improve strategy? Ans:

The designer guesses a solution to a problem Checks the correctness of the solution.

If the solution is not according to expectations, then he’she refines the solution the refinement is an iterative process.
