Question 2
Consider a network using the pure ALOHA medium access control protocol, where each frame is of length 1,000 bits. The channel transmission rate is 1 Mbps (=10^6 bits per second). The aggregate number of transmissions across all the nodes (including new frame transmissions and retransmitted frames due to collisions) is modelled as a Poisson process with a rate of 1,000 frames per second. Throughput is defined as the average number of frames successfully transmitted per second. The throughput of the network (rounded to the nearest integer) is ______________
A
180
B
160
C
135
D
115

Question 3

Check bits c_2c_1c_0 are appended at the end of the message by the transmitter using the above CRC scheme. The transmitted bit string is denoted by m_4m_3m_2m_1m_0c_2c_1c_0. The value of the checkbit sequence c_2c_1c_0 is
