22. Explain the 'graceful degradation' and 'fault tolerant' in a multiprocessor system. 6
23. Write and explain the sequence of system calls for copying a file to another (new) file. 5
24. What are system calls? Explain the different categories of the system calls. . 10


Objective: The Operating System provides certain services to programs and to the users of those programs in order to make their tasks easier. The services differ from the operating system to another, but we identify and explore some common classes of these services.
