1. In a communications system, noise is most likely to affect the signala.
at the transmitter
in the channel
in the information sourced.
at the destination2. Indicate the
statement. Fourier analysis shows that a sawtoothwave consist of
fundamental and subharmonic sine waves
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
statement. Modulation is used to
reduce the bandwidth used
separate differing transmissionsc.
ensure that intelligence may be transmitted over long distancesd.
allow the use of practicable antennas4. Indicate the
statement. From the transmitter the signaldeterioration because of noise is usuallya.unwanted energy

due to any cause5. Indicate the
statement. Most receivers conforms to thea.
amplitude-modulated groupb.frequency-modulated gr
tuned radio frequency receiver group6. Indicate the
statement. The need for modulation can best beexemplified by the following.
Antenna lengths will be approximately
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
