Answer 1.
(a) Reserved keywords are char, virtual, struct, auto

(b) (i) → strcpy()
(ii) → cout()

(c) Correct code is:

void func(int x, int y=20);
void main()
int One = 10, Two = 20;
func(One, Two);
void func(int x, int y)
x = x + y;

The maximum value of ToGo is : 2

Answer 2.
(a) Differences between data type struct and data type class are as follows:

struct data type class data type
Data type struct is a logical collection of related dissimilar data items that can be used as a single unit for input/output operation. A class is a collection of not just related data items but also a collection of functions that Operate on those data items.
It is composed of only structural constituents. It is composed of structural as well as behavioral constituents.
All members of the struct are public by default. All members of the class are private by default.
We cannot call a function by using the reference of class. We can call a function by using the reference of class.

(b) (i) The Function1 is referred as destructor and is automatically invoked when the object goes out of scope.
(ii) The Function2 is referred as constructor and is automatically invoked as soon as the object is allocated memory.

(c) class Taxi
int Taxino;
char Taxiname[20];
char Destination[20];
float Distance,Fuel;
void CALC();
void INPUT():
void SHOW();
void Taxi::CALC()
else if(Distance<=700)
void Taxi::INPUT()
cout<<"Enter Taxi number:"; cin>>Taxino;
cout<<"Enter Taxi name:";
cout<<"Enter Destination:";
cout<<"Enter Distance:"; cin>>Distance;
void Taxi::SHOW()
cout<<"Taxi number:"<<Taxino<<endl;
cout<<"Taxi name:"<<Taxiname<<endl;

(d) (i) IV. Hierarchical Inheritance
(ii) 41 Bytes
(iii) JName, Weight, Price
(iv) ECInput(), ECShow(), Clnput(), CShow()

Answer 3.

(a) void Merge(int A[], int B[], int C[], int n)
int i;
for(i=0; i<n; i++)
C[i] = 2*A[i]+3*B[i ];
cout<<"Elements of array C are"<<endl;
for(i=0; i<n; i++)
cout<<C[i]<<" ":

(b) Base address, B = 1500
Storage, W= 4 bytes
Row Lower Bound, Ir = 1
Row Upper Bound, Ur = 20
Column Lower Bound, Ic = 1
Column Upper Bound, Uc = 15
Number of columns, Nc = 15
The number of rows, NR = 20.
I = 10
J = 9
Using Row Major
VAL [I][J] = B + [(I-Ir) * Nc + (J-Ic)] * W
i.e. VAL [10][9] =1500 + [(10-1) * 15 + (9-1)] * 4
= 1500 + (135 + 8) *4
= 1500 + 143 *4
= 1500 + 572
= 2072

(c) void SumArr(int A[]C30], int R, int C)
int Sum = 0;
for(int i=0; i<R; i++)
for(int j=0; j<C; j++)
if(A[i][j]%4==0 || A[i][j]%5==0)
cout<<"The sum is: "<<Sum<<endl;

(d) Given expression as (P + Q * {R – S)/T)
CBSE Sample Papers for Class 12 Computer Science Paper 5 9
So, postfix expression PQRS-*T/+

(e) void Push()
Node *Temp;
Temp=new Node;
cout<<"Enter information for new node"; cin>>Temp->info:

Answer 4.
(a) Output
Present Record : 3

(b) void CountNonC()
ifstream Fin("COM.TXT", ios::in);
char line[255];
int count=0;
Fin.getline(line, 255);
if(line[0]!='c' && line[0]!='C')
cout<<"Total lines not starting with c/C are";
(c) void Addob()
fstream FILE;"COLLEGE.DAT", ios::app | ios::binary);
char ans;
FILE.write!(char *)&C, sizeof(C));
cout<<"Want to enter more records(Y/N)?"; cin>>ans;
while(ans!='N' && ans!='n');

Answer 5.

Answer 7.
(a) The important property of the circuit switching technique is to set-up an end-to-end path (connection) between computers before any data is transmitted.
(b) Telnet
(c) The mesh topology is excellent for long distance networking because it provides extensive back-up, rerouting and pass-through capabilities.
(d) Differences between bridge and router are as follows:

Bridge Router
A bridge connects networks with same standards. A router works like a bridge but can handle different protocols.
Bridge uses physical addresses. Router uses logical addresses.

(e) Web browser → Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox
Web server → Apache HTTP server, Internet Information Services
(f) Guided media
(ii) Ethernet
(iv) Fiber
Unguided media
(i) Bluetooth
(ii) Infrared
(g) (i) Cable Layout
CBSE Sample Papers for Class 12 Computer Science Paper 5 14
(ii) According to the situation, the server can be housed in Wing Zas it has the maximum number of computers, i.e. 130 and if any other wing will house the server the network traffic will be more.
(iii) I. The repeater as per one layout (shown in (i)), the repeater can be avoided as all distance between the wings are <= 100m.
II. HUB/Switch will be required for connecting computers inside each wing since each wing have many computers.
(iv) To connect the head office in Delhi to the office at Mizoram, Wide Area Network (WAN) will be used. Since it has no physical medium but the air channel, no lengthy and expensive cabling system will be required. The connectivity can be done by using satellite transmission since its area coverage is quite large.
