KENNEDY 4
th
EDITION MULTIPLE CHOICES
INTRO TO COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM 
1. In a communications system, noise is most likely to affect the signala.
 
at the transmitter
 b.
 
in the channel
c.
 
in the information sourced.
 
at the destination2. Indicate the
false
statement. Fourier analysis shows that a sawtoothwave consist of
a.
 
fundamental and subharmonic sine waves
b.
 
a fundamental sine wave and an infinite number of harmonicsc.
 
fundamental and harmonic sine waves whose amplitude decreases withthe harmonic numberd.
 
sinusoidal voltages, some of which are small enough to ignore inpractice3. Indicate the
false
statement. Modulation is used to
a.
 
reduce the bandwidth used 
b.
 
separate differing transmissionsc.
 
ensure that intelligence may be transmitted over long distancesd.
 
allow the use of practicable antennas4. Indicate the
false
statement. From the transmitter the signaldeterioration because of noise is usuallya.unwanted energy
 b.
 
 predictable in character
c.
 
present in the transmitterd.
 
due to any cause5. Indicate the
true
statement. Most receivers conforms to thea.
 
amplitude-modulated groupb.frequency-modulated gr
c.
 
superheterodyne group
oupd.
 
tuned radio frequency receiver group6. Indicate the
false
statement. The need for modulation can best beexemplified by the following.
a.
 
 Antenna lengths will be approximately
λ
/4 long
b.
 
An antenna in the standard broadcast AM band is 16,000 ftc.
 
All sound is concentrated from 20 Hz to 20 kHzd.
 
A message is composed of unpredictable variations in both amplitudeand frequency
 
 7. Indicate the
true
statement. The process of sending and receivingstarted as early asa.
 
the middle 1930sb.
 
1850c.
 
the beginning of the twentieth century
d.
 
the 1840s
8. Which of the steps is not included in the process of reception?a.
 
decoding
 b.
 
encoding
c.
 
storaged.
 
interpretation9. The acoustic channel is used for which of the following?a.
 
UHF communicationsb.
 
single-sideband communicationc.television communications
d.
 
 person-to-person voice communications
10. Amplitude modulation is the process of
a.
 
superimposing a low frequency on a high frequency
b.
 
superimposing a high frequency on a low frequencyc.
 
carrier interruptiond.
 
frequency shift and phase shift
 
 NOISE
1. One of the following types of noise becomes of great importance at highfrequencies. It is thea.
 
shot noiseb.
 
random noisec.
 
impulse noise
d.
 
transit-time noise
2. Indicate the
false
statement.a.
 
HF mixers are generally noisier than HF amplifiers.
 b.
 
Impulse noise voltage is independent of bandwidth.
c.
 
Thermal noise is independent of the frequency at which it ismeasured.d.
 
Industrial noise is usually of the impulse type.3. The value of a resistor creating thermal noise is doubled. The noisepower generator is thereforea.
 
halvedb.
 
quadrupledc.
 
doubled
d.
 
unchanged 
4. One of the following is
not
a useful quantity for comparing the noiseperformance of receivers:
a.
 
Input noise voltage
b.
 
Equivalent noise resistancec.
 
Noise temperatured.
 
Noise figure5. Indicate the noise whose source is in a category different from that ofthe other three.a.
 
Solar noiseb.
 
Cosmic noise
c.
 
 Atmospheric noise
d.
 
Galactic noise6. Indicate the
false
statement. The square of the thermal noise voltagegenerated by a resistor is proportional toa.
 
its resistanceb.
 
its temperature
c.
 
Boltzmann’s constant
d.
 
the bandwidth over which it is measured
