CBSE Question Paper 2010 class 12 Computer Science

General Instructions:

  • All questions are compulsory.
  • Programming Language: C++

1. (a) What is the difference between automatic type conversion and type casting? Also, give a suitable C++ code to illustrate both. (2)

Ans. Automatic Type Conversion: it is an implicit process of conversion of a data

from one type to another. For example

int N = 65;

char C = N; // Automatic type conversion

cout<<C;

OUTPUT:

A

Type Casting: It is an explicit process of conversion of a data from one type

to another. For example

int A=1, B=2;

float C = (float)A/B; //Type Casting

cout<<C;

OUTPUT:

0.5

(b) Which C++ header file(s) will be essentially required to be included to run/execute the following C++ code? (1)

void main( )

{

int Eno=123, char Ename[ ]=”Rehan Swamp”;

   cout<<setw(5)<<Eno<<setw(25)<<EName<<endl;

}

Ans. (i) iostream.h (ii) iomanip.h

OR

iomanip.h – (As iostream.h is included in iomanip.h)

(c) Rewrite the following c++ program code after removing the syntax error(s) (if any). Underline each correction. (2)

include <iostream.h>

class TRAIN

{

  cin >>TrainNo; gets(Description);

}

Void Display ( )

{

  cout<<TrainNo<<“:”<<Description<<endl;

}

};

void main( )

{

TRAIN T;

Entry. T( ); Display. T( );

}

Ans. #include<iostream.h>

#include<stdio.h>

class TRAIN

{

long TrainNo;

char Description [25];

public:

void Entry ()

{

cin>>TrainNo; gets (Description);

}

}

void StepOut(POINT & P, int Step=1)

{

P.X-=Step;

P.Y+=Step;

P.Z–=Step;

}

void main ( )

6, 34, 16

18, 22, 28

(e) Find the output of the following program: (2)

#include <iostream.h>

#include <ctype.h>

void ChangeIt(char Text[ ], char C)

{

  for (int K=0;Text[K]!=’\0′;K++)

{

if (Text[K]>=’F’ && Text[K]<=’L’)

Text[K]=tolower (Text[K]);

else

if (Text[K]=’E’ || Text[K]==’e’)

Text[K]==C;

else

if (K%2==O)

Justify your answer. (2)

#include <iostream.h>

#include <stdlib.h>

Justification is as follows:

IPOINT  Number
MinimumMaximum
151519
241518
331517
421516

The only option that satisfies these values is option (iv).

2. (a) What do you understand by Polymorphism? Also, give an example in C++ to illustrate the same. (2)

Ans. The process of using an -operator or a function in different ways for different set of inputs given is known- as polymorphism. Function overloading is- an example of polymorphism, where the functions having same name with different set of parameters perform different operations.

Example:

void Disp ( ) //Function 1

{

cout<<“Hello”<<endl;

}

void Disp(int N) //Function 2

{

for(int I=1;I<=N;I++)

cout<<I<<endl;

}

void Disp (int N,int M) //Function 3

{

for (int I=N;I<=M; I++)

cout<<N<<“x”<<I<<“=”<<N*I<<endl;

}

void main ( )

{

int x=5, y=10;

Disp(x); //Function 2 called-Prints numbers from 1 to 5

Disp(x,y) ; //Function 3 called- Prints from multiples of 5

//ranging from 5 to 10

Disp () ; //Function 1 called- Prints Hello

}

(b) Answer the questions (i) and (ii) after going through the following class: (2)

class TEST

{

int Regno, Max, Min, Score;

public:

TEST() //Function 1

{

  Regno= 101;Max=100;Min=40;Score=75;

}

TEST(int Pregno,int Pscore)   //Function 2

{

Regno=Pregno;Max=100;Min=40;Score=Pscore;

}

~TEST() //Function 3

{

cout<<“TEST Over”<<endl;

}

void Display()   //Function 4

{

cout<<Regno<<“:”<<Max<<“:”<<Min<<endl;

cout<<“[Score]”<<Score<<endl;

}

};

(i) As per Object Oriented Programming, which. concept is illustrated by Function 1 and Function 2 together?

Ans. Polymorphism

OR

Function Overloading

OR

Constructor Overloading

(ii) What is Function 3 specifically referred as? When do you think, Function 3 will be invoked/called?

Ans. Destructor, invoked or called when scope of an Object gets over.

(c) Define a class ITEM in C++ with following description: (4)

Private Members

  • Code of type integer (Item Code)
  • Iname of type string (Item Name)
  • Price of type float (Price of each item)
  • Qty of type integer (Quantity of item in stock)
  • Offer of type float (Offer percentage on the item)
  • A member function GetOffer() to calculate Offer percentage as per the following rule:

If Qty<=50   Offer is 0

If 50<Qty<=100   Offer is 5

If Qty>100 Offer is 10

Public Members

  • A function GetStock() to allow user to enter values for Code, Iname, Price, Qty and call function GetOffer() to calculate the offer
  • A function ShowItem() to allow user to view the content of all the data members

Ans. class ITEM

{

int Code;

char Iname [20];

float Price;

int Qty;

float Offer;

void GetOffer() ;

public:

void GetStock ()

{

cin>>Code;

gets (Iname) ; // OR cin.getline (Iname, 80) ; OR cin>>Iname;

cin>>Price>>Qty;

GetOffer() ;342

}

void ShowItern ( )

{

cout<<Code<<Iname<<Price<<Qty<<Offer;

};

void ITEM: : GetOffer ()

{

if (Qty<=50)

Offer = 0;

else if (Qty <=100)

Offer = 5; / /OR Offer = 0.05;

else

Offer = 10; / /OR Offer = 0.1;

}

(d) Answer the questions (i) to (iv) based on the following: (4)

};

class Director

{

int DID;   //Director ID

char Dname[20];

protected:

char Profile[30];

public:

  • Both output() or Output() are acceptable as correct answer since differentiation between small and capital O is very difficult.
  • No marks to be awarded for any other alternative answer Ignore mention of Constructor(s)

(iv) Write the names of all members, which are accessible from member functions of class Director.

Ans. Input(), output(), Profile, D name, DID

(b) An array P[50] [60] is stored in the memory along the column with each of the element occupying 2 bytes, find out the memory location for the element P[10] [20], if the Base Address of the array is 6800. (3)

Ans. Loc(P[I] [J]) = Base(P)+W(I+J*M)

i Loc(P[10][20])  = Base(P)+ 2(10+20*50)

Loc(P[10] [20]) = 68OO + 2(10+20*50)

= 6800 + 2 (10+1000)

= 6800 + 2*1010

= 6800 + 2020

= 8820

OR

Address of P[i] [j] = BaseAddress + W((i–L1)+(j–L2)*M)

Address of P[10] [20]= 6800 + 2((10-0)+(20-0)x50)

= 6800 + 2 x 1010

= 6800 + 2020

= 8820

OR

Address of P[I] [J] along the column

= BaseAddress + W((I–LBR)+(J–LBC)*M)

(where N is the number of rows, LBR = LBC = 1)

Address of P[10][20]=6800+2((10-1)+(20-l)x50)
