In the following question there are statements which are TRUE and statements which are FALSE.
Choose all the statements which are FALSE.
1. If the number of equations in a linear system exceeds the number of unknowns, then the system must be inconsistent - thus no solution.
2. If B has a column with zeros, then AB will also have a column with zeros, if this product is defined.
3. If AB + BA is defined, then A and B are square matrices of the same size/dimension/order.
4. Suppose A is an n x n matrix and assume A^2 = O, where O is the zero matrix. Then A = O.
5. If A and B are n x n matrices such that AB = I, then BA = I, where I is the identity matrix.

Step 1
Answer(1):
The given statement is:
If the number of equations in a linear system exceeds the number of unknowns, then the system must be inconsistent - thus no solution.
The given statement is false because it's not compulsory that, if If the number of equations in a linear system exceeds the number of unknowns, then the system must be inconsistent, it can be consistent.
For example:
\(\begin{cases} x=8\\2x=16 \end{cases}\)
In this system, the number of equations is two and the number of variables is one, that is the number of equations is exceeded by the number of variables.
Thus, this system is consistent.
Step 2
Answer(2):
The given statement is:
If B has a column with zeros, then AB will also have a column with zeros, if this product is defined.
The given statement is false because it's not compulsory that, If B has a column with zeros, then AB will also have a column with zeros if this product is defined.
For example:
Consider, \(A=\begin{bmatrix}1 & 0 \\2 & 1 \end{bmatrix} , B=\begin{bmatrix}3 & 0 \\2 & 0 \end{bmatrix}\) are two matrices, then the product of these matrices is given as:
\(AB=\begin{bmatrix}(1\times3+0\times2) & (2\times3+1\times2) \\(1\times0+0\times0) & (2\times0+1\times0) \end{bmatrix}\)
\(AB=\begin{bmatrix}3 & 8 \\0 & 0 \end{bmatrix}\)
Clearly, their product is defined, and not any column is zero.
Therefore, the given statement is false.
Step 3
Answer(4):
The given statement is:
Suppose A is an n x n matrix and assume \(A^2 = O\), where O is the zero matrices. Then A = O.
The given statement is false because it's not compulsory that, If A is an n x n matrix and assume \(A^2 = O\), where O is the zero matrices. Then A = O.
For example:
Consider, \(A=\begin{bmatrix}0 & 0 \\1 & 0 \end{bmatrix}\) is a non-zero matrix but its square is zero.
Therefore, the given statement is false.
Step 4
Hence, all false statements are 1, 2 and 4.

We will now add support for register-memory ALU operations to the classic five-stage RISC pipeline. To offset this increase in complexity, all memory addressing will be restricted to register indirect (i.e., all addresses are simply a value held in a register; no offset or displacement may be added to the register value). For example, the register-memory instruction add x4, x5, (x1) means add the contents of register x5 to the contents of the memory location with address equal to the value in register x1 and put the sum in register x4. Register-register ALU operations are unchanged. The following items apply to the integer RISC pipeline:
a. List a rearranged order of the five traditional stages of the RISC pipeline that will support register-memory operations implemented exclusively by register indirect addressing.
b. Describe what new forwarding paths are needed for the rearranged pipeline by stating the source, destination, and information transferred on each needed new path.
c. For the reordered stages of the RISC pipeline, what new data hazards are created by this addressing mode? Give an instruction sequence illustrating each new hazard.
d. List all of the ways that the RISC pipeline with register-memory ALU operations can have a different instruction count for a given program than the original RISC pipeline. Give a pair of specific instruction sequences, one for the original pipeline and one for the rearranged pipeline, to illustrate each way.
Hint for (d): Give a pair of instruction sequences where the RISC pipeline has “more” instructions than the reg-mem architecture. Also give a pair of instruction sequences where the RISC pipeline has “fewer” instructions than the reg-mem architecture.

4.7 A multiprocessor with eight processors has 20attached tape drives. There is a large number of jobs submitted tothe system that each require a maximum of four tape drives tocomplete execution. Assume that each job starts running with onlythree tape drives for a long period before requiring the fourthtape drive for a short period toward the end of its operation. Alsoassume an endless supply of such jobs.
a) Assume the scheduler in the OS will not start a job unlessthere are four tape drives available. When a job is started, fourdrives are assigned immediately and are not released until the jobfinishes. What is the maximum number of jobs that can be inprogress at once? What is the maximum and minimum number of tapedrives that may be left idle as a result of this policy?
b) Suggest an alternative policy to improve tape driveutilization and at the same time avoid system deadlock. What is themaximum number of jobs that can be in progress at once? What arethe bounds on the number of idling tape drives?
