Q3 j) What is the advantage of using threads compared to processes? a) Discuss the Multilevel feedback Scheduling and write its advantages. For the three processes P1,P2,P3 with CPU burst time of 30 ms, 6 ms, and 8 ms respectively, find the average TAT, average waiting time and average ressopnse time with time quantum 5ms.Assume all the jobs are available at the same time. Write about Segmentation with example. Discuss basic difference between paging and Segmentation. (10) What is deadlock?

Which algorithm makes the most efficient use of memory? If hit ratio to a TLB is 80% and it takes 15 ns to search the TLB and 150 ns to access main memory, then what must be the effective memory access time in ns? (10) What is the basic operational difference between SCAN, C-SCAN and LOOK scheduling algorithm?
