1. According to the article, which are the levels used to measure a signal's rise time?

The correct answer is e, 10% to 90%.

2. When making power measurements, you can plot the current through a power switching device like a FET (field-effect transistor) as a function of:

The correct answer is a, VDS.

3. Why would you use a constellation diagram?

The correct answer is b, To look at data states of phase or phase-amplitude encoded data.

4. If you logarithmically weight a signal and the result is linear, what does that tell you about the signal?

The correct answer is f, the signal is exponential.

5. The figure below shows the trace of a pulse-modulated carrier, often used to convey information. If the modulation is truly rectangular, then which of the choices below best describes the signal's frequency spectrum?

The correct answer is b, sin(x)/x shape centred at the carrier frequency.

sin(x)/x shape centred

Figure 6: Sin(x)/x shape centred at the carrier frequency.
