Solved question paper of UPSC conducted IES/ ESE Engineering Services Preliminary examination 2018 for EE- Electrical Engineering.

Some Model Questions from the ESE 2018 EE Paper

1. In a sample of 100 students, the mean of the marks (only integers) obtained by them in a test is 14 with its standard deviation of 2.5 (marks obtained can be fitted with a normal distribution). The percentage of students scoring 16 marks is

(a) 36Â Â Â (b) 23

© 12Â Â Â (d) 10

(Area under standard normal curve between z = 0 and z= 0.6 is 0.2257; and between z = 0 and z = 1.0 is 0.3413)

2. In Face-Centered Cubic structure (FCC), what number of atoms is present in each unit cell?

(a) 18

(b) 16

© 14

(d) 12

3. When an alternating voltage of a given frequency is applied to a dielectric material, dissipation of energy occurs due to

1.Â Â Â Continual change in the orbital paths of the electrons in the atomic structure.

2.Â Â Â A small conduction current through the dielectric.

3.Â Â Â Eddy currents.
