Question 1
In a directed acyclic graph with a source vertex s, the quality-score of a directed path is defined to be the product of the weights of the edges on the path. Further, for a vertex v other than s, the quality-score of v is defined to be the maximum among the quality-scores of all the paths from s to v. The quality-score of s is assumed to be 1.

The sum of the quality-scores of all vertices on the graph shown above is ______

929
B
254
C
639
D
879

Question 4
A bag has r red balls and b black balls. All balls are identical except for their colours. In a trial, a ball is randomly drawn from the bag, its colour is noted and the ball is placed back into the bag along with another ball of the same colour. Note that the number of balls in the bag will increase by one, after the trial. A sequence of four such trials is conducted. Which one of the following choices gives the probability of drawing a red ball in the fourth trial?
A
\dfrac{r}{r+b}
B
\dfrac{r}{r+b+3}
C
\dfrac{r+3}{r+b+3}
D
\left( \dfrac{r}{r+b} \right) \left ( \dfrac{r+1}{r+b+1} \right) \left( \dfrac{r+2}{r+b+2} \right) \left( \dfrac{r+3}{r+b+3} \right)

Question 5
In an examination, a student can choose the order in which two questions (QuesA and QuesB) must be attempted.

If the first question is answered wrong, the student gets zero marks.
If the first question is answered correctly and the second question is not answered correctly, the student gets the marks only for the first question.
If both the questions are answered correctly, the student gets the sum of the marks of the two questions.

The following table shows the probability of correctly answering a question and the marks of the question respectively.

\begin{array}{c|c|c} \text{question} & \text{probabiloty of answering correctly} & \text{marks} \\ \hline \textsf{QuesA} & 0.8 & 10 \\ \textsf{QuesB} & 0.5 & 20 \end{array}

Assuming that the student always wants to maximize her expected marks in the examination, in which order should she attempt the questions and what is the expected marks for that order (assume that the questions are independent)?
A
First QuesA and then QuesB. Expected marks 14.
B
First QuesB and then QuesA. Expected marks 14.
C
First QuesB and then QuesA. Expected marks 22.
D
First QuesA and then QuesB. Expected marks 16.
