A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Distinction between kernel mode and user mode function as a rudimentary form of protection security system?

The distinction between kernel mode and user mode provides a rudimentary form of protection in the following manner: Certain instructions could be executed only when the CPU is in kernel mode. Similarly, hardware devices could be accessed only when the program is executing in kernel mode. Control over when interrupts could be enabled or disabled is also possible only when the CPU is in kernel mode. Consequently, the CPU has very limited capability when executing in user mode, thereby enforcing protection of critical resources.

What does a protection diode do?

It will conduct electricity when the voltage across its terminals reaches a certain value. Once the over voltage is extinguished, the protection diode becomes an open circuit again. Therefore, you need to connect a protection diode between both wires to be protected (differential mode) and from each wire to ground (common mode). Protection diodes are primary protection devices (fast reacting), but they cannot handle too much current. That is why they need to be used with secondary protection devices (fuses and gas arrestors) to provide better protection.

How does the distinction between monitor mode and user mode function as form of protection system?

Whenever a trap occurs, the hardware switches from user mode to monitor mode, thus the operating system gains control of the computer. The dual mode operation provides the means of protecting the operating system from errant users, by switching between user mode and monitor mode.
