How many data sets exist with in a GDG?

  1. 10

  2. 100

  3. 255

  4. 300


Correct Option: C

GDG will delete\uncatolog older generation automatically

  1. True

  2. False


Correct Option: A

AI Explanation

To answer this question, we need to understand the concept of garbage collection and how it works in a programming language or environment.

Garbage collection is the process of automatically reclaiming memory that is no longer in use by a program. In most garbage collection systems, older generations, such as objects that have been allocated for a longer time, are often given lower priority for garbage collection. This is because newer objects may have a shorter lifespan and are more likely to be garbage.

Based on this understanding, we can deduce that the statement "GDG will delete/uncatalog older generation automatically" is true.

Option A) True - This option is correct because it aligns with the concept of garbage collection where older generations are often targeted for deletion or reclamation.

Option B) False - This option is incorrect because it contradicts the concept of garbage collection.

Therefore, the correct answer is A) True. GDG will delete/uncatalog older generation automatically as part of the garbage collection process.

GDG will delete\uncatolog older generation automatically

  1. True

  2. False


Correct Option: A

If name of gdg is MYFILE.LIB.TEST then what is the corresponding GDG dataset name that are derived from GDG?

  1. MYFILE.LIB.TEST.G001

  2. MYFILE.LIB.TEST.G0001V00

  3. MYFILE.LIB.TEST1

  4. WE CANNOT DETERMINE


Correct Option: B

How many generations are allowed for a GDG?

  1. 0 to 9

  2. 0 to 5

  3. 000 to 999

  4. 0000 to 9999


Correct Option: D

GDG will delete\uncatolog older generation automatically

  1. True

  2. False


Correct Option: A

The advantages of GDG are.....

  1. It will maintain all generation of data sets

  2. It will catalog older generation files

  3. No need of change the JCL every time when we submit.

  4. None of these


Correct Option: A,C

AI Explanation

To answer this question, you need to understand the advantages of GDG (Generation Data Group).

Let's go through each option to understand why it is correct or incorrect:

Option A) It will maintain all generation of data sets - This option is correct. GDG allows you to maintain multiple generations of data sets, which means you can keep track of different versions or iterations of the same data set. Each generation is assigned a unique generation number, and you can access or refer to any generation using this number.

Option B) It will catalog older generation files - This option is incorrect. GDG does not specifically catalog older generations of files. However, you can still access older generations using their generation numbers.

Option C) No need to change the JCL every time when we submit - This option is correct. GDG simplifies the process of accessing different generations of data sets by providing a common name and a generation number. With GDG, you don't need to modify the Job Control Language (JCL) every time you want to access a different generation. You can simply reference the GDG base name and the desired generation number in your JCL, making it easier to manage and maintain.

Option D) None of these - This option is incorrect. As explained above, options A and C are correct, making the correct answer A,C.

The correct answer is A,C. These options highlight the advantages of GDG, including maintaining all generations of data sets and eliminating the need to change the JCL every time you submit.
