Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Apache Pig is a high-level platform for creating programs that run on

    • A.

      Apache Hadoop

    • B.

      Apache Hive

    • C.

      Java

    • D.

      Python

    Correct Answer
    A. Apache Hadoop
    Explanation
    Apache Pig is a high-level platform for creating programs that run on Apache Hadoop. Hadoop is an open-source framework that allows for distributed processing and storage of large datasets across clusters of computers. Apache Pig provides a high-level language called Pig Latin, which simplifies the process of writing MapReduce programs on Hadoop. By using Pig, developers can write complex data transformations and analysis tasks more easily, without having to write low-level Java code. Therefore, the correct answer is Apache Hadoop.

  • 2. 

    Pig can execute its Hadoop jobs on

    • A.

      Sql

    • B.

      Java

    • C.

      MapReduce

    • D.

      HTML

    Correct Answer
    C. MapReduce
    Explanation
    Pig can execute its Hadoop jobs on MapReduce. MapReduce is a programming model and software framework used for processing large amounts of data in parallel across a cluster of computers. Pig is a high-level data flow scripting language that allows developers to express their data transformations using a language called Pig Latin. Pig Latin scripts are then compiled into MapReduce jobs, which are executed on the Hadoop cluster. Therefore, MapReduce is the correct answer as it is the underlying framework used by Pig to execute its Hadoop jobs.

      Pig Latin

    • D.

      Pig Greek

    Correct Answer
    C. Pig Latin
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Pig Latin. Pig Latin is a high-level scripting language used for analyzing large datasets in Apache Hadoop. It provides a simplified and expressive language for data manipulation and analysis. Pig Latin is designed to work with Pig, a platform for analyzing and processing big data. It allows users to write complex data transformations using a simple and intuitive syntax, making it easier to work with big data.

    • D.

      Microsoft

    Correct Answer
    C. Android
    Explanation
    Android is not one of the operating systems on which Pig runs. Pig is a high-level platform for analyzing large datasets in Apache Hadoop, and it primarily runs on OS X, Linux, and Microsoft operating systems. However, Android is a mobile operating system designed for smartphones and tablets, and it is not compatible with Pig.

      Java

    • D.

      Ubuntu

    Correct Answer
    B. Linux
    Explanation
    Linux is the correct answer because it is an operating system that is commonly used for running Pig, a high-level platform for analyzing large datasets in Apache Hadoop. Android is a mobile operating system, Java is a programming language, and Ubuntu is a Linux distribution, none of which are specifically known for running Pig.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Pig is a type of_____software
