## Numerical Methods Internship Test

Intern has to take Numerical Methods internship test in which they will be asked 50 multiple-choice questions. They have to score grade A or A* on this test to be eligible for the internship. Here’s a sample set of questions on the Numerical Methods topic.

1. The Bisection method is also known as ___________________
(A) Binary Chopping
(B) Quaternary Chopping
(C) Tri region Chopping
(D) Hex region Chopping

Explanation: Bisection Method is also called as Binary Chopping. It is a method involving the division of the interval into half.

2. If a function is real and continuous in the region from a to b and f((A) and f((B) have opposite signs then there is no real root between a and b.
(A) True
(B) False

Explanation: If a function is real and continuous in the region from a to b and f((A) and f((B) and if both have different signs then there is at least one real root between a and b. This is because the function has to cross the x-axis at least once.

3. If a function is defined at 2 points 3 and 7 as f(3)=8 and f(7)=12, it is sufficient to find the roots through Bisection Method.
(A) True
(B) False

Explanation: If a function is real and continuous in the region from a to b and f((A) and f((B) and if both have different signs then there is at least one real root between a and b. This is because the function has to cross the x-axis at least once. The given values are both positive so it is insufficient to find out the roots through Bisection method.

4. What is the region of convergence of Secant Method?
(A) 1.5
(B) 1.26
(C) 1.62
(D) 1.66

Explanation: The region of convergence of Secant Method is 1.62. It converges faster than Bisection method.

5. Rate of convergence of the Newton-Raphson method is generally __________
(A) Linear
(C) Super-linear
(D) Cubic

Explanation: Rate of convergence of the Newton-Raphson method is generally Linear. It states that the value of root through the Newton Raphson method converges slowly.
