    Which of these is a compilation of plan name DB2 along with the transaction identifier?

    • A.

      TCT

    • B.

      PPT

    • C.

      RCT

    • D.

      FCT

    Correct Answer
    C. RCT
    Explanation
    The correct answer is RCT. RCT stands for Resource Control Table, which is a compilation of plan name DB2 along with the transaction identifier. This table is used to manage and control resources in the DB2 database system. It helps in coordinating and tracking the execution of transactions within the database.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which of these can be described as one-time execution of a CISC transaction?

    • A.

      FCT

    • B.

      CISC task

    • C.

      CEMT

    • D.

      Start

    Correct Answer
    B. CISC task
    Explanation
    A CISC task can be described as a one-time execution because it refers to a complex instruction set computer task, which typically involves multiple instructions and operations executed in a single task. Unlike other options like FCT (Function Call Table), CEMT (CICS Execution Modal Task), or Start, which may involve repeated or ongoing executions, a CISC task is typically performed once to complete a specific set of instructions.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    When is a NEWCOPY required?

    • A.

      When a file has never been run

    • B.

      When a file is very old

    • C.

      When a file is run and recompiled

    • D.

      When a file is changed

    Correct Answer
    C. When a file is run and recompiled
    Explanation
    A NEWCOPY is required when a file is run and recompiled. This means that whenever a file is executed and then modified, it needs to be recompiled with the changes. This ensures that the latest version of the file is used and any updates or modifications are incorporated into the program's execution.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which of these is a run way task that is executed at a later stage?

    • A.

      AICA ABEND

    • B.

      ENQ

    • C.

      DEQ

    • D.

      EIB

    Correct Answer
    A. AICA ABEND
    Explanation
    AICA ABEND refers to an abnormal end of a program due to an internal error or fault. It is a runtime task that occurs at a later stage when the program is executing. ENQ, DEQ, and EIB are not related to runtime tasks or program execution.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of these is attached to all tasks and stays with a particular task till it is executed?

    • A.

      DEQ

    • B.

      EIB

    • C.

      JCT

    • D.

      TSQ

    Correct Answer
    B. EIB
    Explanation
    The EIB (Execution Interface Block) is attached to all tasks and stays with a particular task until it is executed. It contains information about the task, such as the input and output parameters, the task status, and any error messages. The EIB allows for communication and coordination between different tasks within a system.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    What command do you use to read a statement from TSQ?

    • A.

      Permanent storage read command

    • B.

      Call command

    • C.

      Read command

    • D.

      Temporary storage read command

    Correct Answer
    D. Temporary storage read command
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Temporary storage read command" because when you want to read a statement from a Temporary Storage Queue (TSQ), you would use the temporary storage read command. This command allows you to retrieve data that has been previously stored in the TSQ.

    What is the meaning of PPT?

    • A.

      Plan Program Table

    • B.

      Program Processing Table

    • C.

      Programming Process Task

    • D.

      Popular Program Table

    Correct Answer

    • C.

      RCT

    • D.

      TCT

    Correct Answer
    D. TCT
    Explanation
    TCT stands for Table Compilation Table, which is a compilation of all the respective tables in CISC (Complex Instruction Set Computing). CISC is a type of computer architecture that emphasizes complex instructions and aims to reduce the number of instructions needed to perform a task. The TCT contains all the necessary information and data from various tables, allowing the CPU to efficiently execute instructions in a CISC-based system.
