LONG QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Q.4 What is an operating system? Explain some common tasks or functions of an operating system.
Ans: Operating System:
An operating system is the system software, which is responsible for the management of a wide variety of computer operations and also the sharing of computer resources. An operating system (OS) is a set of programs containing instructions that coordinate all the activities of the computer. It is the program that manages all the other programs on the computer. Operating system works in the background and most of the time the user will not be aware of what it is doing.
Task or Functions of Operating System:
Some Common functions of Operating Systems are:
1. Memory Management:
Computer systems have different types of memories such as temporary as well as permanent memories or storages It is the job of an Operating System to allocate the relevant and necessary memory space to the applications and devices for efficient and optimum processing of information. The operating system handles the allocation and management of memory that programs use.
2. I/O Management:
Managing the inputs and outputs of various devices is also one of the critical functions of Operating Systems. With the help of device drivers, the Operating System controls flow of information with the necessary allocation of system resources to ensure correct input and output. Operating systems provide a supervision of the input/output devices that are connected to a computer system.
3. Files Management
Operating system provides a file management service which allows the user to locate and manipulate the various programs and data files which are stored on the hard disk. The operating system keeps track of the locations of all ‘the files. If a user wants to move, rename or delete a file, the operating system manages such changes and helps the user locate and gain access of it.
4. Resource Management
Operating system manages different computer resources like CPU time, memory, files, and I/O devices. A process is a program in execution. In general, a process will need certain resources to accomplish its task. These resources are allocated to the process either when it is created, or while it is executing by the operating system. This involves ensuring that all the system resources receive sufficient processes time for expected functioning.
5. Users Management
Many users can work in a networking environment. User management is a critical part of maintaining a secure system. Operating systems also provide protection policies that ensure privacy and prevent damage to information contained within the computer system. This is achieved through the use of access rights given to the multiple users.
Q.5 Explain the following types of operating systems.
i. Command line interface (CLI)
ii. Menu driven interface (MDI)
iii. Graphical user interface (GUI)
- Command line interface (CLI):
A command line interface is one in which user types in commands to make the computer do something. Users have to know the commands and what they do and they have to be typed correctly. DOS and UNIX are examples of command line interface systems.
- Menu driven interface (MDI)
An interface consisting of a series of screens which are navigated by choosing options from lists, i.e. menus. Menu contains lists of options on the screen that lead to other screens. Because of their simplicity, menu-driven interfaces are commonly used for walk-up-and-use systems, such ps information booths and ATMs. Novell Netware is the example of an old menu driven interface operating system.
- Graphical user interface (GUI)
A graphical user interface (GUI) is one in which a user selects command choices from various_ menus, buttons and icons using a Mouse. It is a user-friendly interface. The graphical representation of commands is much easier to understand and use. In 1984, the Apple Company introduced the first GUI computer, the Macintosh. Windows and Linux are examples of GUI operating systems.
Q.6 Write short note on the following.
i. DOS ii. UNIX
iii. Macintosh iv. Windows
i. DOS (Disk Operating System):
DOS (Disk Operating System) was the first widely-installed operating system for personal computers. DOS is a non-graphical command line operating system created for IBM compatible computers. Although the DOS operating system is not commonly used today, the command shell is used through Microsoft Windows to support existing DOS applications. Unlike Microsoft Windows, DOS requires the user to type commands instead of using a mouse.
UNIX is an operating system which was first developed in the 1960s. It is a command driven multi-user and multi-tasking system for servers and desktops.
The UNIX operating system is made up of three
parts; the kernel, the shell and the programs.
The kernel is the hub of the operating system. It allocates time and- memory to programs and handles the file store and communications in response to system calls.
The shell acts as an interface between the user and the kernel.
The programs are the currently running applications.
The Macintosh . (often called “the Mac”), introduced in 1984 by Apple Computer, was the first widely-sold personal computer with a graphical user interface (GUI). The Mac has “user-friendly” computer interface. This includes the mouse, the use of icons or small visual images to represent objects or actions.
Windows is a Graphical User Interface (GUI) Operating System which contains graphics and icons and is commonly navigated by using a computer mouse. Microsoft was the first to introduce the idea of an operating system which was named as Windows in November 1985 as an attachment. to the MS-DOS in reply to the increasing curiosity in Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs). The latest versio:-..,f
Q.7 Explain single user and multi user operating systems with examples.

(i) A Single task — single user OS:
A single task — single user operating system allows a user to work in a single program at any given time.
(ii) Multitasking — single user OS:
In multitasking single — user OS can run multiple applications and programs at once. This is often used on computers where someone may wish to navigate the Internet, run a graphics editing program, play music through a media playing program, and type in notes in a simple word processing program all simultaneously.
MS-DOS, Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows ME.
Multi — Users Operating System:
A multi-user operating system allows more than one user to use the computer’s resources simultaneously at the same time.
A .multi-user operating system is often used in
Businesses and offices where different users need to access the same resources, but these resources cannot be installed on every system. In a multi-user operating system, the OS must be able to handle the various needs and requests of all of the users effectively.
UNIX, Linux, Windows 2000 and Windows Server Family
Q.8 Explain different components/features of graphical user interface (GUI).
Ans: GUI (Graphical User Interface):
GUI allows the use of icons or other visual indicators to interact with electronic dev!,-:Ps; rather than using only text via the command line. This makes it easier for people with little computer skills to operate the computer.
Components/features of GUI:
A GUI combines four components which Window, Icon, Menu and Pointer.
(a) Windows: All the information displayed on the screen is presented inside a window.
(b) Icons: Small graphical symbols known as icons are used to represent files, folders, drives, programs and commands. Icon is used to select an action.
