Q.1
Consider the system

where p and q are arbitrary real numbers. Which of the following statements about the controllability of the system is true ?
A.
The system is completely state controllable for any nonzero values of p and q
B. Only p = 0 and q = 0 result in controllability
C. The system is uncontrollable for all values of p and q
D. We cannot conclude about controllability from the given data
Answer : Option C
Explaination / Solution:


Since S is singular, system is completely uncontrollable for all values of p and q .

Q.6
The Eigen values of following matrix are

A. 3, 3 + 5j, 6 - j
B. -6 + 5j, 3 + j, 3 - j
C. 3 + j, 3 - j, 5 + j
D. 3, - 1 + 3j, - 1 - 3j
Answer : Option D
Explaination / Solution:

Sum of the principal diagonal element of matrix is equal to the sum of Eigen values. Sum of the diagonal element is -1 - 1 + 3 = 1.In only option (D), the sum of Eigen values is 1.
