4. 4z – 2 – 8/z – 1/z2 + 3/z3

4. Consider a discrete-time signal given by

x[n] = (-0.25)n u[n] + (0.5)n u[-n-1]

The region of convergence of its Z-transform would be

1. the region inside the circle of radius 0.5 and centered at origin
2. the region outside the circle of radius 0.25 and centered at origin
3. the annular region between the two circles, both centered at origin and having radii 0.25 and 0.5.
4. the entire z-plane

2. 0 and 1
3. 1 and 0
4. 1 and 1

6. If $x[n]=(\frac{1}{3})^{\left | n \right |}-(\frac{1}{2})^{n}\; u[n]$ , then the region of convergence (ROC) of its z-transform in the z-plane will be

1. 1/3 < |Z| < 3

1. an-1
2. an
3. nan
4. nan-1

8. H(z) is a transfer function of a real system when a signal x[n] = (1+j)n is the input to such a system, the output is zero. Further, the region of convergence (ROC) of $\left ( 1-\frac{1}{2}z^{-1} \right )H(z)$ is the entire z-plane (except z = 0). It can then be inferred that H(z) can have a minimum of

1. one pole and one zero
2. one pole and two zeros
3. two poles and one zero
4. two poles and two zeros

9. A discrete real all pass system has a pole at z = 2∠30°; it, therefore

1. also has a pole at 0.5∠30°
2. has a constant phase response over the z-plane: arg|H(z)| = constant
3. is stable only if it anticausal
4. has a constant phase response over the unit circle: arg|H(e)| = constant
