Q1- Attempt any four of the following: (5x4=20)

a) What do you mean by Reliable Communication? What are the constraints?

b) Consider a discrete memory less source whose alphabet consists of K equiprobable
symbols. Explain why the use of a fixed length code for the representation of such a source
is not efficient enough.

channel matrix of the resultant channel and draw the resultant equivalent channel diagram.
2. Find P (z1) and P(z2) when P(x1)=0.6, P(x2)=0.4.

Q3- Attempt any two of the following: (10x2=20)

(a) A DMS X has five symbols with probabilities 0.4, 0.19, 0.16, 0.15, 0.1. Construct a
Shannon-Fano code for X, and calculate the efficiency of the code. Construct another
Shannon-Fano code and compare the results. Repeat for Huffman code and compare the
