Note : Question no. 1 is compulsory. Attempt any three questions from the rest.


(a) (b) (c)

Tabulate chomsky hierarchy of grammar with examples. Briefly describe Universal Turing Machine. If L is recursive, show that E is also recursive. Using parse tree show that the grammar : S -* S +S S*S a is ambigous Use a + a*a as the string List three applications of finite Automata. Convert the following Regular expression into FA : (a + b) * (aa + bb) (a +b)* When can a problem be termed as undecidable ? Explain with example. 1

(a) Derive FA from the following NFA :



Convert the following Regular expression into a FA : a*(ba) * b * Give Regular Expression for all strings that do not end in a double letter.



(a) Show that the language : L = lanbn : n 01 is not regular. (b) (c) Design a TM that accepts all strings over alphabet = {a, b} whose second letter is b.

(a) If f (x)=2x3 + 3x2 + 1 then show that

f (x)= 0 (x)

and also f (x)= 0 (x2). (b) (c) What is meant by time complexity and space complexity of a problem ? 3
