                   (i) To initialise the data member (ii) To deposit money (iii) To withdraw money after checking the balance (minimum balance is Rs.1000) (iv) To display the data members.                                        (6)

             b.   How many times is the copy constructor called in the following code?                 (4)


                   Apple func(Apple u)


                   Apple w=v;

                   Return w;

                   Apple y = func (x);

                   Apple z = func (y);



             c.   What are the advantages and disadvantages of inline functions?                           (6)

                   example?                                                                                                           (4)





             c.  Define a class loan with Principle, Period and Rate as data members. Incr (float) is a member function, which increases the rate of interest by the parameter value. If rate of interest is same for all loans, use appropriate declarations and implement the class.    (6)


  Q.7     a.   Write a program having a base class Student with data member rollno and member functions getnum() to input rollno and putnum() to display rollno.

                     A class Test is derived from class Student with data member marks and member functions getmarks() to input marks and putmarks() to display marks. Class Sports is also derived from class Student with data member score and member functions getscore() to input score and putscore() to display score. The class Result is inherited from two base classes, class Test and class Sports with data member total and a member function display() to display rollno, marks, score and the total(marks + score).  (12)


             b.   What will be the result of following expressions when they are executed in sequence?                      (4)



                   int a = 10;

                   int b = 20;

                   c = ++a     +    ++a   +  ++a;

                   b=b++       +    b++;

                   e=a++       +   --a       + b--;

                   f=b--  & ++a  +  b++;





Q.8       a.   What are generic classes? Why are they useful? Explain with an example how these are implemented in c++.                                                                                                                         (8)


             b.   Explain the following functions(with example) for manipulating file pointers:

                   seekg(),seekp(),tellg(),tellp().                                                                             (8)


  Q.9           Explain the following:


(i)                  Stream class hierarchy.
