10 INPUT "A = "; A
20 INPUT "B = "; B
30 INPUT "C = "; C
40 IF A = B AND B = C THEN PRINT "Equilateral Triangle"
50 IF (A = B AND B <> C) OR (B = C AND C <> A) OR (C = A AND A <> B) THEN PRINT "Isosceles Triangle"
60 IF A <> B AND B <> C AND C <> A THEN PRINT "Scalene Triangle"
70 END

b) Write the syntax of FOR NEXT loop with STEP. Also give an example.


FOR <variable> = <start> TO <end> STEP <value>
<loop body>
NEXT <variable>


10 FOR I = 1 TO 10 STEP 1

Q6. a) Write a program to input name, age and salary of a person. Calculate and display the Insurance Premium with the name as follows:

Age (Years)              Premium (% of Salary)
25 - 40 10
41 - 50 12
51 and above 14
10 INPUT "Enter name"; N$
20 INPUT "Enter age"; A
30 INPUT "Enter salary";S
40 IF A >= 25 AND A <= 40 THEN P = 10
50 IF A >= 41 AND A <= 50 THEN P = 12
60 IF A >= 51 THEN P = 14
70 LET PR = P / 100 * S
80 PRINT "Insurance Premium = "; PR
90 END

b) Correct the errors in the following program code:
10 FOR I = 1 – 20 STEP 20
20 PRINT “I”
50 END

10 FOR I = 1 TO 20 STEP 2
40 END

Q7. a) Write a program to input the number of days and convert it into years, months and days.

50 LET D = D % 30
60 PRINT Y; " years "; M; " months and "; D; " days"
70 END

b) Write the use of the following functions with an example for each:
i) SGN(): This function is used to check whether a given number is positive, negative or zero. It returns -1 for negative numbers, 1 for positive numbers, and zero for zero. Example: PRINT SGN(-45)
ii) ABS(): This function is used to find the absolute value of a given number. Example: PRINT ABS(-30)
iii) MOD: This is used to find the remainder after dividing two numbers. Example: PRINT 7 MOD 3

Q8. a) Write a program to store the number 789 in a variable and display the reverse of it. [Hint: Reverse is 987].

10 LET N = 789
20 LET R = 0
30 LET D = N MOD 10
40 LET R = R * 10 + D
50 LET N = INT(N / 10)
60 LET D = N MOD 10
70 LET R = R * 10 + D
80 LET N = INT(N / 10)
90 LET R = R * 10 + N
100 PRINT "Reverse: "; R
110 END

b) Give the output for the following:
10 FOR Z = 1 TO 3
20 PRINT Z ^ 2 – 1
40 END


Q9. a) Write a program to display the series:
1 / 1, 1 / 3, 1 / 5, 1 / 7, … 1 / N

10 INPUT "N = "; N
20 FOR I = 1 TO N STEP 2
30 LET S = S + 1 / I
50 PRINT "Sum of the series = "; S
60 END

b) Explain the use of MOD function in BASIC with a suitable example.
The MOD function is used to find the remainder after dividing two numbers.
Example: PRINT 7 MOD 3

Q10. a) Write a program to enter N numbers and display the square root of them.

10 INPUT "N = "; N
20 FOR I = 1 TO N STEP 1
30 INPUT "Enter the number"; NUM
60 END

b) Explain the use of counters in BASIC with a proper example.
Counters are special variables in BASIC that allows us to count any even in the program.
Example: To input 10 numbers and count how many of them are even.
10 FOR I = 1 TO 10 STEP 1
20 INPUT “N = “; N
30 IF N MOD 2 = 0 THEN C = C + 1
60 END
