# 250+ TOP MCQs on Carrier Acquistion Techniques in DSB-SC and Answers

Analog Communications Question Bank focuses on “Carrier Acquisition Techniques in DSB-SC”.

1. Flyback switched mode is used in television because it can supply many voltage outputs.
a) True
b) False
Clarification: In frequency modulation, power is determined from carrier amplitude and as carrier amplitude does not change, thus power remains constant. So if we increase the modulation index, then also it does not affect power and it will remain constant.

2. What will be the effect on power if the modulation index of a frequency modulated signal is increased?
a) increases
b) decreases
c) remains constant
d) first increases and then decreases
Clarification: In frequency modulation, power remains constant. So if we increase the modulation index then also it does not affect power, it will remain constant.

3. The equation 20sin⁡(108 t + 3 sin⁡ 109 t) represents which modulation?
a) AM
b) DSB-SC
c) PM
d) FM
Clarification: On comparing with the general equation of each modulation, we found that it represents Frequency modulation.
FM (t) = Ac sin (2πfct + βsin(2πfmt)), where symbols have their usual meaning.

4. Monopole antenna is a type of travelling wave antenna.
a) True
b) False
Clarification: Monopole antenna is a type of wire antenna like Marconi antenna, also known as quarter-wave antenna. Travelling wave antenna makes use of a travelling wave as a radiating guide and they consist of helical antenna, spiral antenna.

5. In which modulation, frequency of carrier signal is varied with the amplitude of modulating signal?
a) FM
b) AM
c) PM
d) VSB
Clarification: In Frequency Modulation, the frequency of carrier wave is varied with the instantaneous amplitude of modulating signal. The general FM modulated expression is :
FM (t) = Ac sin (2πfct + βsin(2πfmt)), where symbols have their usual meaning.

6. In Phase Modulation the phase of carrier signal is varied.
a) True
b) False
Clarification: In phase modulation, the phase shift of carrier wave is varied with respect to the instantaneous amplitude of modulating signal. The general PM modulated expression is:
PM (t) = Ac sin (2πfct + βsin(2πfmt)), where symbols have their usual meaning.

7. Power spectral density of thermal noise remains uniform upto frequency ___________
a) 1015 HZ
b) 105 HZ
c) 102 HZ
d) 1013 HZ
Clarification: Power Spectral Density is the quantity of power present in a signal in the frequency domain. Power spectral density of thermal or white noise gets affected when the frequency becomes greater than 1013 Hz and thus, it remains uniform upto 1013 Hz.

8. Carrier frequency remains constant in cell communication.
a) True
b) False
Clarification: In cell communication, the carrier frequency does not remain constant. Instead, the carrier frequency get changes continuously with respect to the instantaneous amplitude of the message signal.

9. Waves of which frequency can penetrate the atmosphere?
a) higher than 10 MHz
b) higher than 20 MHz
c) higher than 30 MHz
d) higher than 100 MHz
