# Context Free Grammar

 Question 1
Consider the following context-free grammar where the set of terminals is $\{a,b,c,d,f\}$.

$\begin{array}{lll} S & \rightarrow & d \: a \: T \mid R \: f \\ T & \rightarrow & a \: S \: \mid \: b \: a \: T \: \mid \epsilon \\ R & \rightarrow & c \: a \: T \: R \: \mid \epsilon \end{array}$

The following is a partially-filled LL(1) parsing table. Which one of the following choices represents the correct combination for the numbered cells in the parsing table ("blank" denotes that the corresponding cell is empty)? A A B B C C D D

 Question 4
A CFG (Context Free Grammar) is said to be in Chomsky Normal Form (CNF), if all the productions are of the form $\mathrm{A} \rightarrow \mathrm{BC}$ or $\mathrm{A} \rightarrow \mathrm{a}$. Let G be a CFG in CNF. To derive a string of terminals of length x, the number of products to be used is:
 A 2x-1 B 2x C 2x+1 D $2^{x}$

1. Please add a function to Sort the PYQs like (a) Older to Latest and (b) Latest to Older

• Dear Tirth,
It’s already sorted from latest to Older order for Subject and Topicwise practice. From the analysis it is observed that practice of latest questions are very important.

2. Question no 25th answer is wrong ,
it should be option A.

• Thank you shivam,

3. qes no 9 is wrong
