Explanation : The Relocatable Object Module Format (OMF) is an object file format used primarily for software intended to run on Intel 80x86 microprocessors. It was originally developed by Intel under the name Object Module Format and is perhaps best known to DOS users as an.OBJ file.
COM file is a type of simple executable file. On the Digital Equipment operating systems of the 1970s, .COM was used as a filename extension for text files containing commands to be issued to the operating system (similar to a batch file). With the introduction of CP/M (a microcomputer operating system), the type of files commonly associated with COM extension changed to that of executable files. This convention was later carried over to MS-DOS. Even when complemented by the more general .exe file format for executables,
Option (a) save (ƒa), save (ƒb), save (ƒd), delete (ƒd), save (ƒc) is possible as we can save 1,3,6 in 9 contiguous block and then delete ( fd) to get 6 contiguous space. After that we can save ( fc ) = 5 in remaining 7 blocks.. So option (a) is possible.
Similarly we can execute Option (c) and option (d) where as option (b) is not possible
Explanation : n case P uses one 'Read ahead' buffer the processing and transferring of records can be overlapped.
∴ Elapsed time =(Access time+ Transfer time)x (Number of records)
= (10 + 4) 1000 m sec
= 14 sec.
Here processing time is less than transfer time.
