Answer any 5 questions out of the given 7 questions (1 x 5 = 5 marks)

27. Assume that you are working at MyFlight which is a major airlines company and that you have noticed that the way passengers board your planes is an inefficient use of time and resources. On an average, the current boarding system wastes about four minutes per boarding. This wastes about 35000 rupees per day across all flights. The boarding protocols make the company less competitive and thus create an unfavourable brand image. Using a modified boarding, passengers can board the plane from the sides rather than from the back to the front. This will eliminate four minutes of waste. Taking this as the problem, choose which of the following would be the ideal problem statement template.


a) Our passengers have a problem that it takes more time when one has to board the plane. An ideal solution would be to use different airlines.

b) Our passengers have a problem that the current boarding system wastes time while waiting in the airport. An ideal solution would be to board the plane before the airline crew gets into the plane.

c) Our airlines have a problem that the current boarding system wastes four minutes of time when passengers aboard the plane. An ideal solution would be to board the plane from the sides rather than from the back to the front.

d) Our airlines have a problem that it takes more time when passengers have to board the plane. An ideal solution would be to sell the airlines.

29. A leading multinational company operates on a chain of hypermarkets and grocery stores deployed an AI application to make it easier for employees to keep their stores running smoothly. They used thousands of video cameras, weighted sensors on shelves, and other technologies that can tell employees when certain products is starting to go bad.

32. A scenario is given to you below. Read it and answer the questions that follow:

Late one night, a car ran over a pedestrian in a narrow by street and drove away without stopping. A policeman who saw the vehicle leave the scene of the accident reported it moving at very high speed. The accident itself was witnessed by six bystanders. They provided the following conflicting accounts of what had happened:

– It was a Toyota and its headlights were turned off;

– It was a grey Audi.

– It was a red car driven by a woman;

– The car was moving at high speed and its headlights were turned off;

– The car did have license plates; it wasn’t going very fast;

– The car didn’t have license plates; the driver was a man;

When the car and its driver were finally apprehended, it turned out that only one of the six eyewitnesses gave a fully correct description. Each of the other five provided one true and one false piece of information. Keeping that in mind, can you determine the following:

i) What was the car’s brand?

ii) What was the colour of the car?

iii) Was the car going fast or slow?

iv) Did it have license plates?

v) Were its headlights turned on?

vi) Was the driver a man or a woman?


a) i) -> TOYOTA ; ii) -> GREY ; iii) -> FAST ; iv) -> NO ; v) -> NO ; vi) -> WOMAN

b) i) -> AUDI ; ii) -> RED ; iii) -> SLOW ; iv) -> NO ; v) -> YES ; vi) -> WOMAN

c) i) -> AUDI ; ii) -> RED ; iii) -> FAST ; iv) -> YES ; v) -> NO ; vi) -> MAN

d) i) -> TOYOTA ; ii) -> RED ; iii) -> SLOW ; iv) -> NO ; v) -> NO ; vi) -> MAN  


33. Amazon had been working on a secret AI recruiting tool. The machine-learning specialists uncovered a big problem: their new recruiting engine did not like women.
