    [Each of 5 marks]
    10 marks
    • Question 1 and 4 includes very short answer questions whose answer can be given in one statement,which may also include to idenitify program error, find out program output etc.
    • Question 2 and 5 includes question of short answer of 20-25 words based on the basic introductory facts, objectives, and functions to test the understanding of the subject matter. Further the question items may includes parameters like advantages, disadvantages, comparison, effectiveness, etc. of concepts.
    • Question 3 and 6 include question of long answer of 150 words test the analytical ability to analyze a scenario and apply theory for the solution.
  • The letter grade awarded to a student in a course shall be based on CIE and SEE. The letter grades AA AB AC BB BC CC FF indicate level of academic achievement assessed on a 10 point scale.
    Letter Grades: AA AB AC BB BC CC FF
