**Q1. Which of the following is the most efficient way of obtaining the big web graph containing billions of nodes?**

Breadth First Search

Depth First Search

Linear search

Binary search

Random walk

**Answer: Random walk**

**Q2. What is the problem in link analysis that teleportation solves?**

differentiate an important website from all websites

It prevents web crawlers from getting stuck in infinite loops

It helps web crawler to visit all nodes during analysis

none of the above

**Q3. Choose the correct option corresponding to the gold coins’ distribution game.**

The game might not converge.

The game converges even with people having an equal or unequal number of gold coins.

The game converges only when people have an unequal number of gold coins.

The game converges only when people have an equal number of gold coins.

**Answer: The game converges even with people having an equal or unequal number of gold coins.**

**Q4. Consider algorithm 1 to be equal sharing coin distribution game and algorithm 2 to be random dropping coin distribution game. Which of the following is true?**

Algorithm 1 ranks the nodes in ascending order of their importance while algorithm 2 ranks the nodes in descending order of importance.

Both the algorithms rank the nodes in descending order of their importance but give different results.

Algorithm 1 ranks the nodes in descending order of their importance while algorithm 2 ranks the nodes in ascending order of importance.

Both the algorithms rank the nodes in descending order of their importance and give same result.

**Answer: Both the algorithms rank the nodes in descending order of their importance and give same result.**

**Q5. Given a complete network having 4 nodes. We take a random walk of length 1 million on this network. Every time we arrive on a node, we gift it a gold coin. The approximate number of gold coins each node collects at the end of this experiment is**

1 million each

Two nodes collect half of a million gold coins and two nodes remain empty handed

Quarter a million each

Since the experiment is probabilistic, nothing can be said

**Answer: Quarter a million each**

**Q6. Which of the following is not possible in the gold coin distribution game?**

Total number of coins circulating in the system decreases

One node ends up collecting all the gold coins

One node ends up getting no gold coin

Total number of coins in the system increases

**Answer: Total number of coins in the system increases**

**Q7. Choose the correct statement with respect to the pagerank matrix.**

Pagerank matrix is symmetric

Sum of elements in each column is 1.

Pagerank matrix is same as the adjacency matrix of a graph.

Sum of elements in each row is 1.

**Answer: Sum of elements in each column is 1.**

**Q8. A gold coin distribution game is played on the following network. When the game converges,**

Yahoo, Amazon and M’soft, each collects one third of the coins

M’soft collects all the coins

Yahoo and M’soft together gets all the coins and Amazon gets none

All the coins are lost

**Answer: M’soft collects all the coins**

**Q9. In the graph G shown in following figure, assume that the current pagerank values of A, B and C are 0.3, 0.3 and 0.4 respectively. What will be their pagerank values after one iteration?**

A : 0.4,B : 0.3,C : 0.3

A : 0.4,B : 0.4,C : 0.2

A : 0.3,B : 0.3,C : 0.4

A : 0.3,B : 0.4,C : 0.3

**Answer: A : 0.4,B : 0.3,C : 0.3**
