Sampling

Question 1
Consider the two continuous-time signals defined below:

x_{1}(t)=\left\{\begin{matrix} |t|, & -1\leq t \leq 1 \\ 0 & otherwise \end{matrix}\right. ,

x_{2}(t)=\left\{\begin{matrix} 1-|t|, & -1\leq t \leq 1\\ 0, & otherwise \end{matrix}\right.

These signals are sampled with a sampling period of T=0.25 seconds to obtain discretetime signals x_{1}[n] \; and \; x_{2}[n], respectively. Which one of the following statements is true?
A
The energy of x_{1}[n] is greater than the energy of x_{2}[n]
B
The energy of x_{1}[n] is greater than the energy of x_{2}[n]
C
x_{1}[n] nor x_{2}[n] have equal energies.
D
Neither x_{1}[n] nor x_{2}[n] is a finite-energy signal

Question 1 Explanation: 
x_1(t)=\left\{\begin{matrix} |t|, & -1 \leq t \leq 1\\ 0, & \text{ otherwise} \end{matrix}\right.

T_s= sampling time-period = 0.25 sec
x_1(n)=\{ 1,0.75,0.5,0.25,0,0.25,0.5,0.75,1\}

x_2(t)=\left\{\begin{matrix} 1-|t|, & -1 \leq t \leq 1\\ 0, & \text{ otherwise} \end{matrix}\right.

x_2(n)=\{ 0,0.25,0.5,0.75,1,0.75,0.5,0.25,0\}

Since, x_1(n) is having one more non-zero sample of amplitude '1' as compared to x_2(n). Therefore, energy of x_1(n) greater than energy of x_2(n).
Question 2
The output y(t) of the following system is to be sampled, so as to reconstruct it from its samples uniquely. The required minimum sampling rate is
A
1000 samples/s
B
1500 samples/s
C
2000 samples/s
D
3000 samples/s

Question 2 Explanation: 


From the above block diagram,
Z(t)=x(t) \cos 1000 \pi t
By using modulation property of fourier transform,
Z(\omega )=\frac{1}{2}[X(\omega + 1000 \pi t)+X(\omega - 1000 \pi t)]

Now, h(t)=\frac{\sin 1500 \pi t}{\pi t}=1500 Sa(1500 \pi t)

Thus, H(\omega ) is a low pass filter and it will pass frequency, component of Z(\omega ) upto 1500 \pi rad/sec.

Therefore, maximum frequency component of y(t) is
\omega _m =1500 \pi rad/sec or f_m =750 Hz
So, the minimum sampling rate for y(t) is
f_{s\; min}=2f_m=1500Hz=1500 samples/sec
Question 3
Let x_{1}(t)\leftrightarrow X_{1}(\omega ) \; and \; x_{2}(t) \leftrightarrow X_{2}(\omega \omega ) be two signals whose Fourier Transforms are as shown in the figure below. In the figure, h(t)=e^{-2|t|} denotes the impulse response.

For the system shown above, the minimum sampling rate required to sample y(t), so that y(t) can be uniquely reconstructed from its samples, is
A
2B_{1}
B
2(B_{1}+B_{2})
C
4(B_{1}+B_{2})
D
\infty

Question 3 Explanation: 
Given that,
Bandwidth of X_1(\omega )=B_1
Bandwidth of X_2(\omega )=B_2
system has h(t)=e^{-2|t|} and input to the system is x_1(t) \cdot x_2(t)
The bandwidth of x_1(t) \cdot x_2(t) is B_1+B_2.
The bandwidth of output will be B_1+B_2.
So, sampling rate will be 2(B_1+B_2).
Question 4
A sinusoid x(t) of unknown frequency is sampled by an impulse train of period 20 ms. The resulting sample train is next applied to an ideal lowpass filter with cutoff at 25 Hz. The filter output is seen to be a sinusoid of frequency 20 Hz. This means that x(t)
A
10Hz
B
60 Hz
C
30 Hz
D
90 Hz

Question 4 Explanation: 
Given, impulse train of period 20 ms.
Then, sampling frequency =\frac{1}{20 \times 10^{-3}}=50Hz
If the input signal x(t)= \cos \omega _m (t) having spectrum

The filtered out sinusoidal signal has 20 Hz frequency, the sampling must be under sampling. The output signal which is an under sampled signal with sampling frequency 50 Hz is

and 50-f_m=20Hz\;\Rightarrow \;f_m=30Hz
Question 5

Question 5 Explanation: 
\begin{aligned} f_{m_1} &=4Hz \\ f_{m_2} &=6Hz \\ f_{m_3} &=7Hz \end{aligned}
Then minimum sampling frequency satisfying the nyquist criterion is 7*2=14Hz.

Question 7 Explanation: 


Given that, sampling interval =1 msec
i.e. T_s=1 \; msec=10^{-3}\; sec
Therefore sampling frequency
f_s=\frac{1}{T_s}=\frac{1}{10^{-3}}=1 kHz
after sampling new signal in frequency domain
U_T(f)=\frac{1}{T_s}\sum_{n=-\infty }^{\infty }U(f-nf_s)
Therefore, spectrum of sampled signal will be
