Suppose pgm A passes 30 bytes to pgm B thru commarea and pgm B has defined its DFHCOMMAREA to be 50 bytes. Is there a problem? a. No, the program runs fine b. Yes, if B tries to access bytes 30-50 c. Yes, if B tries to access bytes 31-50 d. None of the above

  1. A

  2. B

  3. C

  4. D


Correct Option: B

When does an ASRA ABEND occur? a. Due to incompatible data types b. when PCT entry is not defined for the program c. undefined plan d. none of the above

  1. A

  2. B

  3. C

  4. D


Correct Option: A

AI Explanation

To answer this question, let's go through each option to understand why it is correct or incorrect:

Option A) Due to incompatible data types - This option is incorrect because an ASRA ABEND does not occur due to incompatible data types.

Option B) When PCT entry is not defined for the program - This option is incorrect because an ASRA ABEND does not occur when the PCT entry is not defined for the program.

Option C) Undefined plan - This option is incorrect because an ASRA ABEND does not occur due to an undefined plan.

Option D) None of the above - This option is incorrect because the correct answer is one of the given options.

The correct answer is A) Due to incompatible data types. This option is correct because an ASRA ABEND occurs when there is a mismatch or incompatibility between data types in a program.

What are the characteristics of Pseudo conversational Program? a. Program ends after it sends data to a terminal b. Program (transaction) remains idle when waiting for user response. c. Program is in storage only when processing data, otherwise storage is released for other transactions/tasks. d. All the Above

  1. A

  2. B

  3. C

  4. D


Correct Option: A

When does an ABMO ABEND occur? a. Cursor positioning beyond the limit of O/P device b. Specified map is not in the mapset c. Task exceeded the execution time (task was looping) d. Program could not be found

  1. A

  2. B

  3. C

  4. D


Correct Option: B

AI Explanation

To answer this question, we need to understand what an ABMO ABEND is and what conditions can cause it to occur.

An ABMO ABEND, also known as a map output error, occurs when a specified map is not found in the mapset. This means that the program is unable to locate the map that it needs to display or process the output.

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

Option A) Cursor positioning beyond the limit of the output device - This option is incorrect. A cursor positioning error refers to the situation where the cursor is positioned beyond the limits of the output device, causing an error. This is not related to an ABMO ABEND.

Option B) Specified map is not in the mapset - This option is correct. An ABMO ABEND occurs when the specified map is not found in the mapset. This means that the program is unable to locate the map it needs to display or process the output.

Option C) Task exceeded the execution time (task was looping) - This option is incorrect. A task exceeding the execution time or looping refers to a different type of error, not an ABMO ABEND.

Option D) Program could not be found - This option is incorrect. A program not being found refers to a different type of error, not an ABMO ABEND.

The correct answer is B) Specified map is not in the mapset. This option is correct because an ABMO ABEND occurs when the specified map is not found in the mapset, causing the program to be unable to locate the map it needs.
