(2) ax = FFF6 h and cx = 0 h

(3) ax = FFF7 h and cx = 0A h

(4) ax = FFF5 h and cx = 0A h

(1) ax = 003CH; CF = 0

(2) ax = 001EH; CF = 0

(3) ax = 007BH; CF = 1

(4) ax = 00B7H; CF = 1

List – I

(a) A part of a compiler that is responsible for recognizing syntax.

(b) A part of a compiler that takes as input a stream of characters and produces as output a stream of words along with their associated syntactic categories.

(c) A part of a compiler that understand the meanings of variable names and other symbols and checks that they are used in ways consistent with their definitions.

(d) An IR-to-IR transformer that tries to improve the IR program in some way (Intermediate representation).

List – II
