 B
"fail passive" or without failure effect but with disconnection.
"fail survival" or without failure effect with function alwaysensured.
 D
"fail safe" with failure effect without disconnection.
94)In the event of a conflict, the TCAS (Traffic CollisionAvoidance System) will give information such as :

 B
"fail passive" or without failure effect but with disconnection.
"fail survival" or without failure effect with function alwaysensured.
 D
"fail hard" or without failure effect and disconnection.
102)The autothrottle :1- enable to catch and to maintain the N1 RPM2- enable to catch and to maintain the N2 RPM3- enable to catch and to maintain an airplane indicatedairspeed (IAS)4- is always engaged automatically at the same time asthe autopilotThe combination regrouping all the correct statementsis:

turning left with not enough bank
 B
turning left with too much bank
turning right with not enough bank
 D
turning right with too much bank
104)The yaw damper indicator supplies the pilot withinformation regarding the:
 A
yaw damper action only on the ground
 B
rudder position
yaw damper action on the rudder 
 D
rudder displacement by the rudder pedals
105)The Decision Height (DH) warning light comes on whenan aircraft:
 A
descends below a pre-set barometric altitude.
 B
passes over the ILS inner marker.
descends below a pre-set radio altitude.
 D
