(B) false
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: Matrix operations follow the rules of linear algebra and are not compatible with multidimensional arrays. The required size and shape of the inputs in relation to one another depends on the operation.

3. The function to evaluate the value of a polynomial,l for a constant value of the independent variable(say a) in the polynomial is ______
(A) poly(p,a), p is a row vector
(B) polyder(p)
(C) polyint(p)
(D) polyval(c,a), c is a row vector
View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: polyder(p)and polyint(p) produces the differentiation and integration of the polynomial p. Polyval(c,a) is the correct form of the function to evaluate the value of a polynomial whose independent variable is a. The value of a has to be provided first before writing the function.

4. What is the difference between who and whos command?
(A) The former shows the names of the variables being used while the latter shows the details of the variables in the ongoing program
(B) The latter shows the the names of the variables being used while the former shows the details of the variables in the ongoing program
(C) No difference at all
(D) There is no such function as who and whos
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: The function ‘who’ shows the names of the variables used. The function ‘whos’ shows the details of the variables in the ongoing program but it doesn’t show the attributes of the variables.

5. If a character input is given to a command which only takes integers, it’ll always give an error.
(A) True
(B) False
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: MATLAB is very sensitive to the nature of inputs defined for a particular command. If the input to a command has to be an integer but we give a character input, it’ll give an error.
